Most likely viral infection.
However, if this is going on for more than a week, this can be a bacterial infection as well.
In that case, antibiotics like amoxicillin can be prescribed by a local physician.

Ok --probably viral infection which can be controlled with ibuprofen.
If no improvement in a week, then you can start antibiotic course --correct dose will be amoxicillin 1 gram twice daily for 7 days after clinical evaluation.
