As per your query you have breathing difficulty, sore throat and excessive thirst is because of granular pharyngitis/ bronchitis which is a lung infection. I would suggest you to take decongestants containing psedonephrine like Sinarest. Taking decongestant nasal spray can also be relieving. Take antibiotic course of Levofloxacin for 5 days. Visit ENT specialist once and get complete examination done. Go for blood tests , throat swab test and viral culture test along with that get chest x-ray done. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics course along with anti inflammatory. Do warm saline gargles and take steam inhalation. Chew Vitamin C pellet to booster immunity. Keep yourself hydrated and eat soft and liquid meal .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
