Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.
The problem you have stated is suggestive of upper respiratory infection.
The cause of sore throat most of the time is due to allergy and viral infection, it may sometimes get superadded with bacterial infection.
You have likely contracted a bacterial throat infection called pharyngitis with tonsillitis. As we are not certain as to what type of bacteria is causing this so we recommend that you have your doctor take a swabbing sample from the back of your throat for laboratory testing.
You will likely be prescribed oral antibiotic medication to treat this infection.
Please see your doctor.
