You might try some baking soda and warm salt water gargles. Drink a lot of fluids, stay hydrated. Get plenty of rest, and don’t smoke, if you do. If you don’t gain any relief, seek medical attention.

Eight days is too long for these symptoms to be undiagnosed. See a ENT for exam and treatment. Don't medicate yourself, have a doctor prescribe what is best for your condition.

This is an educational site, not a diagnostic site. 8 days is too long to ago untreated. Please contact your GP for examination and appropriate treatment. If you do not have one, contact Urgent Care or log into our paid examination/treatment site.
