Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding sore throat and flu, severity of pain is so much that you can't take proper meals.

Considering your complaints it appears as you are having acute pharyngitis, which may be viral or bacterial.

To manage it you should take-

(a) Antibiotic.

(b) Analgesic and antipyretic.

(c) Decongestant.

(d) Warm saline gargling.

I hope this will help you .
