Discomfort or pain in the throat is often called a sore throat, but it's not always due to illness. Irritation and injury can cause soreness too. Most sore throats should go away within a week but visit your doctor at a nearby Carbon Health if it lasts longer than that. If you struggle to breathe or swallow, seek immediate emergency care.
- Throat pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including viral infections such as the common cold or flu, bacterial infections such as strep throat, allergies, acid reflux, and smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke.
