Hi and thanks for the query,
You can take paracetamol for the pain after checking the dosage.
Do warm salt water gargling 4 times daily and steam inhalation 4 times daily.
Avoid cold foods and air conditioning.
Get plenty of rest and eat well.
If you do not feel better in 2 more days then you may need an antibiotic and a cough suppressant, so you should see the doctor.
You may need a chest x Ray as well.
Dr Kishori.
