Doctor

A:   Hello
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

You seem to be suffering from Streptococcal Sore Throat Upper Respiratory tract infection (URTI)
You should get a Streptococcal Swab test done.
I advise following in such cases:
1. To take an antibiotic like Amoxycillin.
2. To take an anti-allergic like Levocetirizine, chlorpheniramine.
3. To do warm saline gargles. You can add a tablet of Aspirin in water and do gargles with that.
4. To do steam inhalation
5. To take Paracetamol on as or when required basis for fever and body pains.
Share my opinion with your Doctor before you act upon it.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy
