Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Supportive care with antihistamines, warm salt water gargles and home remedies will help. Some advil will relieve the pain and swelling. If fever is there then get evaluated for sore throat infections.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
