Sore throats triggered by allergens can cause you much distress. Referred to medically as pharyngitis, sore throats are derived from allergens that irritate and inflame your pharynx (throat). Generally symptoms correlated with a sore throat vanish without any medical treatment, but seeking advice from a certified allergist is suggested if your symptoms get worse and do not subside within a week.
Symptoms & Causes
Sore throats that are not induced by viruses or bacteria - are from pollen, dirt, dander, or mold that enters into your air passage and produces a response from the immune system. Allergy caused sore throats can be further aggravated by other conditions like: strep throat, dryness, or stomach reflux.
