Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Sore throat can be caused by a number of factors.
Often it is viral infection.
There can be headache with it.
But there can be an infection with bacteria too.
As the pain is much, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
A throat swab can be taken to test for bacteria.
In bacterial infection antibiotic would be necessary.
You can now take tylenol or Motrin for pain.
Warm salt water gargling will also help.
You can do warm salt water gargling.
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt needs to be dissolved in an 8-ounce of warm water.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
