It sounds as if you are experiencing an infection in your oro-pharings(oral cavity and throat). I canât tell you what kind of infection, because I'm unable to see it and examine the localized afffected area. You can seek help from an ENT-specialist. A microbiological smear and blood analyses will have to be done to identify the cause of the infection. Proper antibiotics and corticosteroids will most likely be required for treatment.
