Sore throat: It could be a virus or bacterial infection ( strep throat), allergies- any fever? Over the counter decongestant, saline and sore- throat lozenges , plenty of fluids and rest can help with symptoms. Followup with your doctor or a HT virtual visit to see if testing and further treatment is needed. Best wishes!
