Allergies: It could be from a pollen allergy. You could try a course of over the counter allergy medicine, or just wait a while and see if it gets better. This is a good choice, especially if it's very mild. If your at all concerned, get an exam by your primary care physician to make sure it's not strep throat. Hope this helps!
