Sore throats can be caused by viruses or bacteria. The most common causes of sore throats are viruses. Viral sore throats are often accompanied by other cold symptoms that may include a runny nose, cough, red or watery eyes, and sneezing. Other causes of sore throat include smoking, pollution or irritants in the air, allergies, and dry air.

Most sore throats are from a virus and  often gets better or goes away after the first day or two on it's own. 

Most of the time, even people who think they have “Strep Throat” actually have a viral throat infection.


The bad news: antibiotics do not work on viruses.
The good news: Your body will fight off the virus on its own, usually within 5-10 days.
