In brief: Symptomatic relief
In addition to taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for pain relief, salt water gargles (1 tsp.
Salt in quart warm water – then gargle several times per day) eating smooth, cool foods like ice cream or jell-o and sucking hard candies may also help alleviate throat pain.

In brief: Depends
Severe pain, or worsening symptoms should be checked by your doctor. In the mean time, over the counter advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) may help alleviate some pain.
