Throat: If you truly have a bacterial infection you need an antibiotic. If a viral infection, you may need an anti-viral. An antiseptic spray may cause the pain to temporarily diminish, but will not cure the cause. Please, seek an examination by a Physician rather than wasting money in self-medication.
