Sore Throat

What is Sore Throat?

Sore throats need no introduction. We've all had them at one time or another. They occur most commonly from infection with viruses, bacteria, and fungi (yeast), but chronic drainage from allergies can make your throat sore as well. Sometimes sore throats occur when stomach acid backs up (refluxes) into the esophagus and back of the throat.

Any sore throat that lasts more than a few days that you cannot gargle away with warm salt water, or has fever or a rash associated with it, demands the attention of your physician. But once you have a good idea—from among the many possibilities—of what's causing your throat to be sore, nutrition can help.
