Hello Azam, thank you for asking at

Your throat pain can be caused by several possible conditions such as:

Sore throat
Common cold

Due to your complaint being felt for only one day, you are allowed to take medication (drugs that are marked in green or blue) or throat pain relievers that are sold freely on the market. But it is not recommended for you to take the drug amoxicillin or other antibiotics without clear advice from the doctor who examined you because your complaint at this time does not necessarily require antibiotics.

In the meantime, there are some things that are recommended for you to do such as:

Stay at home for at least 14 days since the complaint was first felt
Wear a mask even in the house as long as complaints are still felt
Avoid the consumption of fried foods, hard or spicy textured for a while
Avoid cigarettes
Maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake per day
Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit
Maintain hand hygiene routinely by washing hands using soap and running water for at least 20 seconds
Get enough rest at least 6-8 hours a day
Do regular exercise at least 30 minutes a day

If the complaint does not improve within 3 days after you have tried taking an over-the-counter medication, or has gained weight, it is strongly recommended that you further check with your doctor for a direct evaluation.

If complaints such as high fever (body temperature reaching 38 degrees or more) or shortness of breath, immediately go to the emergency room nearest hospital to get further help.

I hope this helps.
