Can sinus drainage from allergies cause sore throat and difficulty swallowing?

No

Sore_throat
Your symptoms are not due to "sinus drainage." An infection in the nose or back of the nose and sinuses can cause the feeling of "sinus drainage".

4 weeks of symptoms . Should I get an antibiotic ? I have no fever ! Persistent sinus pressure, ear pain, yellow thick nasal discharge, sore throat.

See your doctor

Sinus_infections
Your symptoms of sinusitis with yellow discharge, and sore throat means you need to see your doctor, before this goes any further. S/he can prescribe or advise you better after a physical exam whether antibiotics are warranted or not. Most importantly, you want relief from the sinus pressure from all the mucus draining.

What are some good remedies for a sore throat caused by sinus drainage?

Stop the drip

Open-uri20120813-29127-k5hxn0
depending on the cause of the sinus drainage: allergy, infection, etc. If allergy: try antihistamines like Claritin, Zyrtec, etc which are OTC, nasal salt water rinses, and get a prescription steroid nasal spray from your doctor if that doesn't help. throat sprays and gargles can help temporarily. good luck!

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

is a constant sore throat & drainage a chronis sinus infection ?

Usually not

Neck-throat
It may be due to anything from acid refluxing from your stomach while you sleep to allergies to an early, easy-to-treat throat cancer. A physician office visit is indicated if it lasts two weeks or more. I'm glad you're taking a pro-active approach to your health and I wish you luck.

I have been smelling smoke for a few days when there isn't any, and had a MILD sore throat and slight drainage. Is this a sinus infection?

It could be post

Infection
nasal drip related to a viral infection. Sinus infection is possible but often you would feel pressure or pain over the affected sinuses. A medical evaluation would help to accurately diagnose this if the symptoms worsen or are not resolving. Take care.

Sore throat and sinus drainage with tender lymph nodes in neck. On 3rd day of Z-pak, feel better overall, but not in throat or neck. See a dr?

Patience

If you feel you are getting better I would give it some more time. Your lymph nodes can stay swollen for months after an illness. If they are getting larger, or more numerous, that is a different story and see your doc ASAP.
