Doctor can examine: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). Infected lymph nodes (glands) in neck or jaw areas can be painfully swollen.

If this is long-standing,in the absence of constitutional symptoms,an isolated unilateral throat pain when swallowing deserves the consideration of a unilateral post-nasal drip,especially if you tend to sleep on that side.A deviated septum needs to be considered.Naturally there might be other causes.

Cannot diagnose: You need to see a doctor, be examined and diagnosed and treated by somebody face to face. Cannot do this over the internet.
