I have an ongoing sore throat and it has been about a week or so, when I eat and drink it slowly goes away-ish and then comes rite back?

Sore throat. Sore throat could be from infection or allergies. If the symptoms persists more than a week have it checked out, medications might help to get better.
Sore throats . A persistent sore throat may come from several causes including mononucleosis, sinus infections, night time mouth breathing, smoking and others. If Tylenol (acetaminophen) and gargling are not helping I suggest you see your doctor and get it checked. In the meantime drink lots of fluids and get some good rest. Chicken soup would be good too!! .
