Hello,

It may be due to tonsillitis.

For that you may require antibiotics azithromycin after ENT consultation.

Along with that continue steam inhalation and Betadine gargle twice a day.

For pain you can take tablet acetaminophen.

Take hygienic food and water.

Maintain proper hygiene

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