1. probably sore throat as you said has arised from your common cold. (Viral)
2. make sure that other causes of sore throat mainly bacterial (Streptococcus,Tonsillitis) are ruled out.
3. for how much duration this sore throat has been present: which could also be due to low humidity, smoking,air pollution, or post nasal drip.
4. It is important not to use antibiotics to treat viral illness, as they do not alter the course of viral illness but causes unnecessary side effects like nausea,vomiting,diarrhea,rashes.
5. saline water gargles, Lozenges (Strepsils,koflet,Halls),herbal tea of ginger,lime,fenugreek,
6. if sore throat is associated with difficulty in swallowing check with your physician about the same.
7. avoid cold drinks,ice cream,fried foods,milk and dairy products,tomatoes,banana.
8. take more of papaya,apple,boiled and steamed vegetables,vegetable soup.
9. check with your physician or health care provider.

thank you for trusting healthcare magic.It seems you got a throat infection.Probably, it could be of viral origin, for which antibiotics are no good. But then, if bacterial or so you need definitely antibiotics.So I would say, start lukewarm saline water girgles, three times/day,rehydrate yourself with lot of fluids(juices,lemon teas),lozenges like Strepsils every 2nd hrly(not for diabetics).Take Vit C supplements,bout 2 tabs/day,alongwith paracetamol for fever.Can wait for 1-2 days, if no improvement, better start an anitibiotic like Azithromycin.But of all, you should have baseline blood exams done.

welcome to health care magic forum,
During the fever and throat infection your body looses a good amount of energy as well as you feel lazy and irritated. Since eating and drinking is very difficult body also suffers form dehydration. Due to irritation even sound sleep is impossible.

Cut down the intake of tea, coffee and carbonated drink. Replace the energy drink with the lime juice sweeten with honey.
Refrain yourself from fried and oily food items. They create more mess in throat.
Do not consume chill or refrigerated products; they are going to ruin your throat.
Keep away the food that possesses properties of cold like cucumbers, bananas, watermelon, musk melon and papaya.
Stay away from curd, yogurt and the sour food items. Even grapes should not be consumed.
Bring down the intake of cheese and dairy products.
Strictly stay away from smoking and hard drinks.

Include as much as fresh green leafy vegetables in your diet. Steam your vegetables and consume it in the lunch. Grab on some hot veggie soup in night with a green salad.
Season your soups, salads, vegetables with the herbs and spices like ginger, garlic, black pepper, basil leaves and cinnamon
Drink a glass of hot milk mixed with small amount of turmeric, sweeten with honey. Consume this drink every night before going to bed. You may also add some piece of ginger and then drain the mixture. Drink when it is hot. This will not only kill all the germs and bacteria but also helps in getting sound sleep.
It is very difficult to swallow solid food when there is immense irritation in throat. Shift yourself to the liquid meals till you get relief from the irritation. Drink a lot of fruit juice, lime water, soups and herbal teas
