Thanks for your query and clear picture.
Noted the history of sore throat for three days, that is affected by drinking fluids and eating. Also noted history of taking aspirin, Ibuprofen and gargles with hot water with salt.
The Picture you have provided shows pus formation in the left tonsil, severe edema of the Pharyngeal wall with redness and coating of hte tongue.
This is definitely infection and you need to take antibiotics, continue Ibuprofen in proper dosage as will be prescribed by your Doctor.
Take a warm liquid diet.
Plenty of oral water as it has self-cleaning action as well as will hydration proper.
Insist on completion of the course till you are cured
