please dont worry , you will be fine!!

Please start gargling with warm salt water 2-3 times a day and avoid spicy and cold food. it will help in early recovery.

You can also start gargling with chlorhexidine mouth wash 2-3 time s a day.

You can take tablet paracetamol 500 mg 2-3 times a day for the throat pain.

You may need antibiotics , since you are already having the infection for three days , for this you will have to meet your doctor for advice and the prescription.
