Doctor can examine: Throat pain in a college-aged person can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), mono from EB virus, or another cause such as allergies, sinusitis, irritants, or stomach acid reflux. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (such as in this case).
