Examine sore throat: When someone has been sick for about a week with a cold, and the symptoms seem to have improved, but then a new symptom appears or the symptoms relapse and get worse, it sometimes means there is a secondary infection. That's actually the best time to see a doctor, because the secondary infections are more likely to be bacterial and to respond to antibiotics than the first ones, which are viral. ...Read more

I : I cannot tell you the cause of your pain. If you look back in your throat, or have someone else do this for you, and there is significant swelling on the the left side of your throat/ left tonsil and it looks like it is dripping pus or contains pus, that could be problematic.
