In brief: Viral

About 85% of sore throats are viral.
They can be just as dramatic as their bacterial counterparts. If you're having trouble swallowing, see your doctor.

Itchy throat and dry cough sounds like an allergy, often to foods. See you Doc and discuss this possibility since it is persisting.
