Treat symptoms: I would advise soothing liquids , monitoring for fever and seeing your PCP. If you have a history of allergies or itching, you can use a dose of an over the counter antihistamine to assess whether this provides relief. Exposure to dust, pollen and pets may trigger sore throat and itchiness as well.
