Hello,

You may be suffering from acute pharyngitis with laryngitis. Use salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use steam inhalation thrice a day for five days. Use tablet amoxicillin and clavulinic acid 625 mg twice a day for five days. If symptoms have not improved, please consult with your ENT specialist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
