Suggest treatment for sore throat

The past week ive had a terrible cough and scratchy sore throat that wakes me up at night. My tonsils are swollen and i have red and white lines in the back of my throat. It hurts to much to even try to swallow. I really dont want to go to the dr unless its really necessary. Help.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
In my opinion
Start antiseptic mouthwash , Plenty of fluids , combination of Paracetemol + Ibuprofen , Antihistaminic levocetirizine , Antibiotic azithromycin , cough suppressant for 5 days.
Certainly above treatment will give you much relief but if relief is not upto satisfaction level then consultation with your ENT doctor will become essential.
Hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.
