Perhaps: Strep throat, mononucleosis, or other viruses. For significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test & culture. Antibiotics are imperative for Strep Throat. Try saltwater gargles. Mix tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day.

Mouth Gone South: A real mess.Sounds like a viral infection of the mouth. They can be real painful and can become superinfected by bacteria. If it's only on one side of the mouth that's one thing, and if on both sides,something else but you should see a doctor.You could wait it out and if just viral, will get better over a week or so;Gargle with mild salt water and avoid salty,spicy foods and citrus. Keep it bland.
