Hello there, Most sore throats are caused by viruses that cause the common cold and flu . Less often, sore throats are due to bacterial infections... A sore throat caused by viral infection — the most common cause — usually lasts five to seven days and doesn't require medical treatment... If your sore throat is caused by a bacterial infection, your doctor will prescribe a course of antibiotics.. Consult Physician for further evaluation...
