Hello
Welcome to HCM.
You have severe throat infections may be due to strepto or staphylo bacteria.
Azithromycin is good for that but if not cured consult yoir ENT surgeon for other medicines like cephalosporin groups medicines.
Take warm water gargles and steam inhalation for 2-3 times a day.
Take paracetamol or ibuprofen for pain and fever.
Take levocet for cold and congestions.
Don't drink cold water or drinks.
Take protein rich diet after some recovery.
Take care...
