In brief: Depends on the site

Of infection and organism. Upper airway infections include streptococcal sore throat, diphtheria, peritonsilar abscess, acute and chronic sinusitis, laryngitis with hoarseness etc.
Most of these infections are associated with fever, pain at the site of infection, and may have sequelae like rheumatic fever, glomerulonephritis, scarlet fever, neuropathy etc.
