Doctor: HelloThanks for using “Ask The Doctor” for posting your query.The picture that you have posted is showing a lot of congestion in the throat and also enlarged tonsils. This suggests that there is some infection, either bacterial or viral. You may need to do warm saline gargles and probably use a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin or cefixime. You may also require use of mild anti-inflammatory and pain killers like paracetamol. Give some rest to the throat.It may take 5-10 days to get improved.Hope this helps,Wish you a good health
