Antibiotic ointment: If the area is raw, you may apply an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin, available over the counter. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine

Probably: Assuming you are otherwise healthy, the answer is probably, especially if you have had a recent cold, and/or plane travel. Call your doc. Rx may include something to open nasal passages, something to thin out mucus, something to kill germs.

Sounds like a virus: Time, rest, fluids, and patience will generally resolve thtese symptoms. If they persist, then it might be worth a visit to your doctor, but these are both incredibly common and entirely self-limited. Treat pain with Acetaminophen or motrin, and try some warm tea for soothing your sore thorat.
