Dr. can check throat: Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza or mono (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies, irritants, or stomach acid reflux. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly. Bigger problems with tonsils can be evaluated by an ENT doctor.
