You need to take antibiotics and antiinflammatory , decongestant medicines under guidance of a ENT specialist.
Do not waste time and start antibiotics. You must consult as soon as possible.
If there is pain in neck and headache that means the infection is more and needs to be treated.
In doubt do reply
