Hello,

Redness and swelling of throat is suggestive of inflammation in throat. I suggest you to consult an ENT specialist for clinical assessment, investigations like throat swab for isolation of infectious agent and thus management.

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