Thanks for your query
I can feel your concern
Get voice rest for a weeks time so that the inflammation get settled , use steam inhalation .
I recommend you to start with antibiotics and drink plenty of water avoid oily foods and soft drinks .you should do gargles and take some green tea I recommend to have a proper clinical examination.
Hope it helps
