Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, fever can be caused by many things, but the most common cause is infection. Infection can be caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, or fungi, and can occur in any organ. When you see the symptoms that you have, chances are you have an infection in the pharynx or in your tonsils. Infection in the pharynx or tonsils is more often caused by a viral infection, but can also be caused by a bacterial infection. Viral infections will generally heal by themselves in 5-7 days without the need for certain treatments. If indeed your symptoms do not improve within 5-7 days or if your symptoms worsen after they have improved, then there is a possibility that the infection has been caused by a bacterial infection.
If it is still less than 5 days since the symptoms first appeared, here are some things you can do:
try to relax your throat, don't talk too much, sing or shout
drink more liquid
gargle with warm salt water
take a shower with warm water and breathe water vapor from your bath water
use an air humidifier or humidifier in your room or office
if the throat hurts to swallow, try eating softer foods first
If it has been more than 5 days your symptoms persist and do not improve, you should check with your ENT doctor so that you can do further evaluation and administration. If there is an indication of a bacterial infection, the doctor will prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
