Hello,

It may be due to throat infection.

For further assessment you may require complete hemogram, throat swab after ENT consultation.

For infection, you may require antibiotics after consultation.

For pain you can take tablet acetaminophen.

Continue saline or betadine gargles twice a day.

Take hygienic food and water.

Hope I have answered your query...
Let me know if I can assist you further.
