In brief: Sore throat

In these situations it is best to see a physician as soon as possible.
The likelihood is that you have a bacterial infection. Under such conditions the person needs to be examined in person and possibly tested for the type of infection. Most definitely something like this would be treated with antibiotics. Not all antibiotics are the same so please do not treat yourself. I appreciate cost.
