I have recently just got over a sore throat that lasted 12

Resolved Question:

I have recently just got over a sore throat that lasted 12 days but it was only on the left side of my throat. Also at the same time I was on antibiotics for a sinus infection. Thankfully this seems to have cleared up but I still have a persistant septic type taste towards the back of my mouth. Any info would help thanks.
