Viral Infection. A viral infection usually doesn't last that long but cough and the other symptoms could last for a while.

Dr. can check throat. New 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. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat).

Mrsa is an aggressive pathogen, so it isn't likely the cause of chronic sore throats or headaches. Unnecessary treatment of MRSA colonization leads to other problems like increased resistance to other antibiotics as well. Read more...
