In brief: Sore throat

Greetings. This is one of those questions that my knee jerk response would be to say, "take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen and call me in the morning.
" A sore throat could come from a a number of causes. But with the information you shared, I'd say try a pain relief medication and if it worsens or begins to worry you then seek further care in an ER or your doctor's office. Good luck.
