As per your history, it may be due to throat infection.

For fever you can take tablet acetaminophen.

You may require antibiotics azithromycin, complete hemogram, chest X Ray after detailed medical examination and physician's opinion.

Along with that do steam inhalation and Betadine gargle twice a day.

Take hygienic food and water. Keep your self hydrated.

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