Sore throat: Virus or bacteria is not the only cause of one sided sore throat, shouting, talking, and singing excessively can also cause this sore throat. Dental problem also triggers this condition. See your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment. If your sore throat is caused by bacteria you will need antibiotics.
