Doctor can examine: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or another cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, one sees a doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). A couple days of Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin (ibuprofen) can temporarily decrease pain.
