hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you have pharyngitis...
see your physician for the prescription of antibiotics, analgesics and salt water gargling..
if it doesnot reduce, may have to take throat swab, culture and sensitivity, and antibiotics based on this..
take multivitamins, with zinc for fast recovery, all the very best...
all the very best.
