Sore throat

Sore throat is a common seasonal disease known as “Pharyngitis” or “Tonsillitis”. It may affect the pharynx or surrounding areas of tonsils. This may be caused by Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria or viruses. It can also be accompanied by another illness like flu, fever and others. 

Additionally, people suffering from sore throat could have hoarse voice, mild cough, fever, headache, tired feeling and swelling glands. Typically, those symptoms get worse in 2-3 days and gradually go within a week. If any patient suffers from sore throat more than 1 week or 10 days that maybe due to other severe diseases. At that instance, please consult your general physician immediately.

Accordingly, influenza, common cold and glandular fever can also be the causes of sore throat.
