In brief: Other things to help

There are a number of things besides panadol or ibuprofen for pain you can do.
Warm salt water gargles will help with the inflammation and will provide some relief. Also cod drinks or even ice blocks will help get fluids into you and may provide analgesia. Also if you are keen ice cream works in the same fashion. Other things are over the counter lozenges and throat sprays can help a bit.
