Hello There. I can understand your concern. looks like you might be having a upper respiratory tract infection which may be of a viral origin. it only requires symptomatic management. Kindly drink lots of water. take paracetamol 650mg thrice a day after food. do betadine throat gargles as directed on the bottle thrice a day. avoid oily and spicy foods. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Hello... It could be throat infection ... You may need antibiotics ... Gargle with salt water, use warm water ... Take steam inhalation for cold ...avoid oily foods ,ice cream ,outside food items , consult general physician in the nearest hospital ,after examination doctor will prescribe antibiotics...but most of times its viral infection which subsides on its own.... In such cases you don't need antibiotics...
