Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be having a throat infection called pharyngitis. You can do warm salt water gargles for relief. Avoid hot, hard or spicy food. You can take cool, soft food like yoghurt, ice cream it it is difficult to eat. If you are developing fever you can take paracetamol tablet under medical supervision although it would be best to consult an ENT Doctor and get examined thoroughly and treated appropriately.
