Not always infection: Such throat symptoms 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, irritants, stomach acid reflux, etc... Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly. May need referral to an ENT doctor or Allergist.
