Summary

Having a sore throat (or pharyngitis) is an extremely common ailment suffered by people today. This problem is the result of an inflammation of the pharynx, which is the area of the throat that is between the vocal cords and the back of the nose. A sore throat is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection.

Even though a sore throat is often just a minor issue, it can be the symptom of a more serious illness such as streptococcal sore throat (strep throat), tonsillitis, flu, glandular fever, scarlet fever, or anemia. Untreated strep throat and scarlet fever can lead to rheumatic fever and kidney failure. A sore throat that lasts more than just a few days is a sign of a more serious illness and should be inspected by a health care professional.

Other causes of a sore throat are: abuse of mouthwashes, food allergies, vitamin deficiency, and heavy smoking or drinking.
