Doctor can examine: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza, 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.). Throat infections can cause lymph glands to swell. A person can have allergies and an infection at the same time.
