Common sore throat symptoms & treatment
Finding it painful to swallow? This common condition can occur for a variety of reasons including air pollution, smoking, or straining your vocal cords. Notice swollen lymph nodes or tiny, red spots on the roof of your mouth? It might be something more serious like strep throat. Strep throat is a bacterial infection transmitted when you come in contact with someone else who already has it. It usually goes away in a few days or weeks and is easily treated with antibiotics.
