Hi
This is probably viral pharyngitis, usually associated with bacterial throat infection you should be okay within 6 days, manage the fever with anti antipyretic drugs, take general antibiotics for the possible bacterial infection .
Common cold medication like antiflu can control most of your symptoms
Good Luck
