At first it wasn't so bad and then it started to go away, but today it got worse. I cringe when I have to swallow because of how much it hurts. And it also burns when I swallow. My throat is a little red, but it still looks normal, there's no white spots on the back of it. I've have my tonsils removed years ago and they haven't "grown back". I was running a bit of a fever yesterday but it's gone down today. What are some good medicines that I could try? In the meantime, how can I help relieve my sore throat? Plz help
