Sorry to hear about that.

You probably will need an antibiotic course preferably co-amoxiclav.

Do gargles with lukewarm salted water .

Take ibuprofen to help relieve the inflammation.

Benadryl will soothe the throat too.

Over-the-counter versions of "numbing" products can help. Herbal sprays with echinacea and sage may also make you feel better.

Hope it helps.

plz let me know if you have any further queries.
