Meanwhile warm...: It is possible that one might have started with viral infection complicated over time with bacterial infection. One might need to go back to see the Dr for antibiotics. Meanwhile warm salt water gargle after meals & before bed + Paracetamol or Ibuprofen for the pain & soreness can help. Vitamin C also helps the immune system.
