Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Do you have fever?
Is there any pain in the chest?
How is the tightness of the chest now?
There can be an allergic reaction to dust or pollen as you have a history of it.
However, a cold or viral infection or a bacterial infection is also possible.
Sore throat can come from those.
I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
A throat swab can be tested.
Doctor can examine the chest & suggests others depending on the findings.
It is necessary as you are feeling tightness in chest.
Doctor can prescribe bronchodilators.
You can take zyrtec which can help with allergy.
You can also do warm salt water gargling.
That will be soothing for throat.
Please take plenty of fluids.

Hi Dr. Saha, thanks you for the answer:
I don't have a fever,
the tightness in my chest has ceased,
I don't have any pain in my chest but still feel a little congested
It is somewhat better but still a little scratchy
