Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of severe sore throat and cough which is due to respiratory infection and could be a combination of bacterial and viral infection.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to consult ENT specialist once for proper examination. Doctor may order test like throat swab test and blood test to confirm the diagnosis . Doctor may prescribe antiviral drug like acyclovir and with anti inflammatory medications. For now do warm saline gargles , take over the counter cough syrup and take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain and swelling .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
