Hello, thank you for your question.
The symptoms you feel are very common in conditions of acute upper respiratory tract infection, in this case pharyngitis / laryngitis, however to make sure you still need a direct physical examination by a doctor / health worker.
This condition is generally caused by infection, where the majority (90%) are caused by viral infections that do not need antibiotics and only [need symptom relief drugs and the rest by bacteria that require antibiotics.
Before you visit the doctor, you can try to do the following:
Make sure you have enough rest and reduce your activities until you are fit again. It is very important to drink lots of water, avoid oily and fried foods, gargle with salt water 3-4 times a day. Pain and fever (if any) can be relieved by using paracetamol. Ibuprofen can be used if you are not allergic to this drug and do not have a stomach upset. both can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy. Honey-lime mixture - soy sauce can help reduce coughs. You can also try using over-the-counter cough drops to reduce the cough. Do not use antibiotics and corticosterods without a doctor's recommendation. If within 3-4 days the complaint does not improve or worsens, then immediately visit the nearest doctor.
