In brief: Viral

Patients with similar complaints often wind up having a viral infection similar to the flu.
For those patients i recommend plenty of fluids, rest, otc "flu" combinations and state if their symptoms worsen or to do not improve, be seen by their primary md.

In brief: VIRAL INFECTION

The answer to your question actually relies on a proper diagnosis by a specialist in the upper airway.
However, the symptoms are rather classical for a viral infection. It is usually a self-limited disease and your immune system if healthy should eradicate the symptoms in 7 to 14 days. Plenty of fluid intake, vit. C, rest and time. Antibiotics are rarely indicated.
