Doctor can recheck: Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or other virus (antibiotics usually not used), allergies or irritants, sinusitis, stomach reflux when asleep, etc... Usually, one sees the doctor if the throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep and review details to see if laryngitis, bronchitis, etc., are present).

See PCP: It's probably viral and will probably resolve in 5-7 days, but it is always good to get checked by your pcp or walk in clinic to make sure.
