Hello Arfian, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
The symptoms and signs that you mentioned are found in several diseases such as:
Tonsillitis is tonsillitis caused by viral and bacterial infections, which have symptoms and signs such as swallowing pain, coughing, fever, bad breath, and swollen lymph nodes in the neck
Peritonsil abscess is a bacterial infection that causes accumulation of pus around the tonsils, which occurs due to inflammation of the tonsils which is not treated properly. Symptoms of this disease are fever, throat pain, painful swallowing, pain when opening the mouth, swelling in the face and neck
Pharyngitis is inflammation of the pharynx (the organ that connects the back of the nose and the back of the mouth), which is caused by a viral and bacterial infection that causes symptoms such as coughing, fever, and painful swallowing
Laryngitis is inflammation that occurs in the larynx (vocal cord) which can be caused by damage to the vocal cords, infections, allergies, and stomach acid. Symptoms of laryngitis are sore throat, cough, fever, and hoarseness
I suggest you to check yourself directly to a general practitioner or a ENT specialist to be able to do a thorough examination such as question and answer, vital signs examination, physical examination such as throat examination, and additional examinations if necessary so that treatment can be given in accordance with the diagnosis You.
As for the things you can do to reduce complaints now, namely:
