Hello and hope you are doing well.
The symptoms described could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain. For the cough (dry) antitussives like Dextromethorphan based syrups like Triaminic may help. If you develop a fever, or cough with expectoration or if there is enlargement of the tonsils with pain or if there is white coating on the tonsils, you will need to consult your primary care physician for a strep test, which if positive you will be given antibiotics.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Hi, it sounds like you really need to see a doctor to get at the cause of your cough, not just mask the symptom.
