Be checked : It sounds like a throat infection which should be examined and treated if indicated. All the best!
Dr. David Lipkin

Viral cold symptoms: Symptoms suggest cold virus with postnasal drip. Will often get better on it's own in 5-10 days. OTC cough meds not effective. Cepacol Extra Strength Throat Lozenges can help. See Dr if you have white exudate(pus) covering the tonsils plus a fever to 101 or more or if not feeling better within several days.
Dr. Jane Lykins

Could be strep: if you have fever or a white coating on tonsils, you should be checked for strep throat so you can get in antibiotics.
