Sore throat, which is technically known as pharyngitis is accompanied by symptoms like pain, scratchiness or irritation of throat or tonsils that often worsens with swallowing. Sore throat is also called as sore throat pain.
There are many causes for sore throat pain. Broadly, the causes can be divided into infectious ones & non-infectious ones. The infectious causes include micro-organisms such as virus and bacteria. The non-infectious causes consist of smoking, acidity, allergy, pollution and dry weather.
Dry and scratchy throat, pain especially while swallowing, loss of appetite & nausea. These may be accompanied with fever in some cases.
Infectious and Non-infectious are two major kinds of sore throat. Throat pain can happen in both types with varying degree of intensity. The intensity of pain depends on the severity of infection or obstruction of the throat.
The duration depends on the type of sore throat. An acute viral infection may last for a week. But in case of GERD (acidity-reflux) related sore throat, the pain may be a chronic affair.
You should see a doctor if the pain & symptoms worsen or if the sore throat is accompanied with other symptoms such as fever, body ache, congestion, nausea etc.
