I am experiencing sore throat. The following also describe me: Loss of voice, Difficulty breathing through nose, Hoarse voice, and Ear ache. What should I do?

Dr. can check throat. Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or other virus (antibiotics usually not used), allergies or irritants, sinusitis, stomach reflux when asleep, etc. Usually, one sees the doctor if the throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep and review details to see if laryngitis, ear infection, etc., are present).
