Hello dear
Welcome to HCM
Thanks for your query

Are you having fever too?If yes then how much?
What other symptoms are you having ?

Your words suggest you are having pharyngitis, most probably due to viral infection but cant rule out chances of bacterial infection too.

Do warm saline gurgling 4times daily for 5 days
Take paracetamol 500mg tablet 1 tablet twice daily for 5 days and thereafter when needed
Take levocetrizine 5mg 1 tablet at bedtime for 5 days
Take Vit C 500mg tablet once daily for a week
Get a throat swab culture sensitivity done

But dont self medicate.Get a check up from your doctor.

Hope this helps

Update here how you stay.

Take care :)
