You dont need to worry about this. You may be having a mild throat infection.

You can take the following steps:

Hexidine gurgle: gurgle two to three times daily with hexidine

Warm soups and other fluids

Avoid cold items like ice cream, cold drinks

Use a neck wrap or muffler to keep the throat warm

Soft diet.

Tab. Motrin (OTC) 200 mg twice daily if pain is severe.
Another important home treatment is Menthol steam inhalation - add Menthol salts (available OTC) to a bowl of steaming water and inhale the steam two - three times daily - this will relieve the congestion.

Logenges: suck Vicks cough logenges or any hard sweets constantly, this will cause a constant flow of saliva and give you relief.

But if you get severe pain, or develop other symptoms like fever, you need to show your doctor, you may need antibiotics in that case.
