Sore throats are inflammation caused by infections such as the cold or the flu. Typical symptoms are scratchiness, difficult or painful swallowing and swollen tonsils.
-If your sore throat doesn’t start to feel better within 2-5 days, an urgent care center can swab your throat and give you the proper diagnosis and prescribe antibiotics if necessary.
-You should consider going to the Emergency Room for your sore throat if it is causing you to feel as though you can’t get air.
