Hello,

The symptoms can be related to the inflammation of the tonsils. I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen to relieve the symptoms. I also suggest using a throat spray for local properties. I recommend to drink liquids and rest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
