Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

Well this seems to be due to a sore throat.

What you need to do is to take plenty of water,have some warm water with honey.

Take over the counter ibuprofen or paracetamol to relieve the pain and inflammation.

If this does not improve in a couple of days then you would need a prescription antibiotic like amoxicillin or augmentin.

Do let me know if you have more questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
