Brief Answer:
Sore throat

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The pain on one side of the throat can be due to infection of tonsil or some post nasal drip on that side.
Please send me the picture of your throat and tell me what medicines have you been taking so far so that I can suggest you better.
Any history of nasal blockage?
Use hexidine gargles.
Follow up with the required information

Take care
Thanks and regards
