Hello,

It may be due to a sore throat.

For that continue steam inhalation and Betadine gargle.

For pain, you can take tablet acetaminophen.

You may require antibiotics after physician consultation.

Take hygienic food and water.

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

Regards,
Dr Shyam Kale, Family and general physician
