Sore throat with noisy breathing is common. You can give him syp calpol 3.5 ml 6hrly and delcon drops 5 drops 12 hrly. If no relief after three days then an antibiotic like syp. Augmentin 2 ml 12hrly should be given. But if there is any breathing difficulty with chest indrawing direct consultation should be done.

Only symptom of baby is sound when breathing developed suddenly, is not criterion of sore throat. It is likely tug of saliva in throat may cause throat sound or it may be chest infection. Baby is only 4 month old, it is better to consult pediatrician for early intervention.
