The only way to know if your throat issues are due to a viral or bacterial infection would be to see a doctor in person.

There is no way way to figure this out via an online chat.

So.  What to do?

Consult with your GP.

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick MD FACS

I hope you feel better soon.
