Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the follow up.

This could be upper respiratory infection. Most probably recurrent tonsillitis. You need clinical examination of throat for confirmation.

I recommend you to take analgesics like tablet ibuprofen for pain relief.

Avoid refrigerated foods and drinks, as these may aggravate this condition.

You will be fine. Nothing to worry.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any questions, I am happy to help.
Wish you a good health and speedy recovery.
