Descending URI: It sounds like you have a mild upper respiratory illness that started with a sore throat. 90% of Pharyngitis (sore throat) comes from a virus, not a bacteria, and you can't take antibiotics for it. Most symptoms of the common cold can be treated with over the counter medication, decongestants and cough suppressants. High fevers, chills, and/or persistent sore throat warrants a visit to your doctor
