Hello,

It may be due to tonsillitis. For that you may require complete hemogram, throat swab after ENT consultation. Continue saline or betadine gargles twice a day. Take hygienic food and water. You may require antibiotics after consultation.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
