Brief Answer:
Maybe suffering from the pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,
I have gone through your query; it suggests that most probably you maybe suffering from the acute pharyngitis of bacterial origin other than strep and
influenza.

In this condition I personally prescribed you
1. Tablet Azithromycin 500mg once a day.
2. Tablet fexofenadine 120mg once in the night.
3. Hexidine mouth gargles
You may take these prescription medicines for atleast 10 days after discussing with your doctor.

If the condition persist even after 10 days then better to go for laryngoscopy.
