Hi.. Throat infection are commonly due to viral infection where the symptoms and treatment is similar to any other flu infection.. Salt water gargling with luke water thrice a day is good, avoid consuming cold and refrigerated food... You may need antibiotics if the symptoms persist for more than a week or if you develop fever and other symptoms...
