    Goodmorning. You may just need to take pain relieve as most cases of sore throat are viral and are self limiting. You can use tab Ibuprofen 200mg twice daily to relieve the pain. Cheers

    okay, i appreciate your quick response. however, will that be sufficient because i have completed the dose of other drugs i got, i have just the cough syrup left?

    Yes, it will be sufficient. You can get the medication today and give an update on how you feel tomorrow.

    Goodmorning, sorry about that. If you have cough with fever. Then it could be pneumonia. I'll advise you go to the hospital and have a chest Xray done to rule this out. You can add tab paracetamol 1g thrice daily with the Ibuprofen for the sore throat. This should help cover the time you had pain.
