Suggest Treatment For Throat Pain And Soreness That Is Making It Difficult To Swallow

am 62 years old and can probably count on my fingers how many times I have not felt very well. have what I thought was a sore throat for 4 days now(wife had it) but now not so sure. 10-15 years ago I had an absess on my throat which they treated with some form of penecillan. currently the pain is not as bad as I felt back then but since has not gone away afraid it might get worse. I have some naproxen and amoxicillin capsules and thinking of trying 1 to see if can knock it out the soreness. difficult to swallow
