Sore throat is a common ailment that affects millions of people each year. Most cases are caused by viral infections but this problem can also be due to bacteria.
Sometimes, sore throat is accompanied by other symptoms such as stuffy nose, runny nose, sneezing, mild fever, muscle aches, and nasal congestion.
This minor illness is more common among children, people who smoke, people who have allergies, and people who have weak immune system. It’s quite contagious too. Sharing an enclosed space with someone who has it can mean that you’ll also have sore throat in a matter of days.
