please tell us from how many days you are suffering from sore throat.
most common cause of acute sore throat is viral orign...(acute viral pharyngitis)
start on tab. erythromycine 500mg twice daily for 5 days
analgesics or paracetmol for pain relivers
try some tips, including gargling with warm, salty water, resting the voice, and avoiding air pollution.
if u still have sore throat go for a throat swab culture and consult a physician
