Take a throat swab and sent for culture and drug sensitivity. Start with amoxicillin 1 tablet twice daily for 7 days.

Take betadine gargle thrice daily after food. Also, take tablet Levocetirizine 1 tablet at bedtime for 3 week.

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