Sore throat is a symptom of many medical disorders. Sore throats are common. The disease is normally seen in children and young people but it can occur at any age. Most of the time the soreness is worse in the morning and improves as the day progresses. Most often, it’s a symptom of another illness – usually a viral infection such as a cold or the flu (influenza). In many cases, a sore throat is the first indication that you’re getting sick. The pharynx, the area of your throat directly behind your mouth and soft palate, is a common hallway for food, liquids, and air. A sore throat is less likely to be strep throat if it is a minor part of a typical cold (with runny nose, stuffy ears, cough, and similar symptoms). Some viruses can cause specific types of sore throat. For example, Coxsackievirus sometimes causes blisters in the throat, especially in the late summer and early fall. The characteristics of the disease are throat pain and trouble swallowing.
