It may look like you have tonsillitis i.e.infection of tonsills.Thats why you are facing such problem.This can be treated very well using medicines.Apart from gargling salt water you should take some antibiotics along with like amoxicillin clavulanic acid to treat infection.Take 625 mg twice a day for 5 days.
Hope this helpful.Take care.
Thank you.
