There are many factors that can cause a sore throat. Your sore throat is a warning sign that there is a problem with your body. A sore throat can be a symptom of the flu, mono, croup, chickenpox, or just a common cold. Bacteria, like strep throat, generally cause a nasty sore throat. There can also be environmental factors that trigger a sore throat including seasonal allergies and irritants in the air. Others can develop a sore throat by straining your voice, such as yelling at a music concert. Because there are so many possible causes of a sore throat, it is vital to get evaluated by a doctor, so they can determine the best treatment.
