Chronic cough, red bumps behind throat, headache, pain on swallowing. Strep throat?

Hi! I have had a cough the past week now and I just now realized that I have red bumps in the back of my throat , which is an indicator for strept throughout. I have a small headache and it hurts to swallow . The coughing has stopped but I am still worried. I have to catch a plane tomorrow and would like to know if I still can go as I am leaving for the XXXX.

The red bumps in the back of throat are lymphoid follicles which get swollen in throat infection. Please take analgesics and do gargles with hexidine. Do sip warm fluids. You can take flight, just keep on chewing a gum while in descent or ascent. Regards
