Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic
it may be acute pharyngitis
have warm saline gargling 3-4 times daily
avoid exposure to cold and give rest to your voice
you may use strepsils lozenges3-4 daily for soothing action
if no improvement within a week better see a ENT soecialist
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Take care
