In brief: That might be a

symptom of pharyngitis.
Pharyngitis symptoms may include: dry, painful or scratchy throat; swollen, red tonsils that may have white patches; swallowing that is painful or difficult; hoarseness ; swollen, tender glands on neck.

Could also be due to laryngo-pharyngeal reflux of acid (LPR)

In brief: Possibly

A raspy voice is the result of some disease of the larynx or inflammation of the vocal folds (cords).
Pharyngitis means an inflammation of the back of the throat. Although they can occur together as a result of a viral infection, the two problems are usually unrelated. Raspy voice can be due to voice abuse or a growth on the vocal folds. Pharyngitis may be due to infection or reflux of acid.
