I have a sore throat no blisters on my tonsils. A slight cough. This is the 3rd day I've been in pain.

Dear customer,
Thank you for providing quick additional info and attaching the pictures.
I have seen both the pictures thoroughlly.
The symptoms you are having of swollen uvula,slight cough & other symptoms can be due to bacterial infection like strep throat.It is the most common bacterial cause of swollen uvula & sore throat.It is caused group A Streptococcus bacteria.
Strep can not be accurately diagnosed by looking at the uvula or throat alone. It requires a laboratory test.A throat swab or a rapid test is required to rule out/diagnose strep infection.
Symptoms caused by viral infection usually gets resolved within a week without leaving any complications,but as this seems to be due to a bacterial infection,an antibiotic medication need to be prescribed to cure this.
Do not use ice/cold drinks as this will aggravate the symptoms.
Keeping a humidifier running in your room or using an over-the-counter salt-water spray (inhaled through the nose) five or six times a day can provide dramatic relief.
There is nothing serious or dangerous here but is of concern.
So I advise you to make an appointment with your doctor for examination & swab test so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.Antibiotics will be prescribed accordingly.
Thank you
