Throat pain can be difficult to deal with, not just because of the pain itself, but because throat pain is usually accompanied by difficulty swallowing as well as cold and flu-like symptoms. The constant discomfort is often accompanied by sneezing, coughing, a fever, and fatigue. If you’re experiencing chronic throat pain, you need to get to the root cause of the problem in order to treat it effectively. For the most part, sore throats are caused by viral infections. They can also be caused by bacteria such as strep, so one of the most common tests that we perform when you come to the The Breathe Clear Institute is a bacterial Q-Tip culture to check for strep and other bacteria. Other causes of throat pain include ulcers. In rare cases, malignancies can form in the throat so if your throat pain isn’t going away please come in and get it checked out.
