Nasopharyngitis: There can be either viral or bacterial infections of the nasopharynx, the space up behind the soft palate which then cause midline drainage on the back wall of the throat. There might also be sore throat and ear pain. If it continues more than 7-10 days then antibiotics. In the meantime saline nasal rinses and mucous thinners.

Sore throat and raw throat with no other symptoms. Is it viral or bacterial?

Can't tell: There's no way to tell over the internet. In fact, there's really no way to tell at all without doing either a rapid strep test or a throat culture. The signs and symptoms of strept throat and viral pharyngitis are indistinguishable.

ENT consult: Sore throat often causes ear pain because of shared (cranial) nerves. You are young and nonsmoker. If it persists for longer than 2 weeks, then get checked out by a doctor. They will examine your ears and do a neuro exam in addition to looking at your throat. If the pains last over a month despite a normal exam, then get an appt with a local ENT who will do a more thorough scope exam.

Sore throat been 3 4 week I am a regular smoker no symptoms of cold or sickness what is this?

Doctor can check: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants (hopefully not cancer). One should go to his doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly, to check things out (3-4 weeks is long). Sometimes throat lozenges can decrease throat pain.
