Suggest remedy for sore throat

I have a very sore throat since last night. I had tonsils&adnoids removed years ago. I looked and I saw red bumps towards the back of my throat and in front of that where my tonsils use to be I have a hole in the scar tissue. I was also coughing up mucus. It hurts really bad to cough and swallow. Any suggestions? Do I need a antibiotic?
