There are people who say that sore throat persists in all seasons be it snow, cold, summer or rainy season. It is more irritating and also distressing than any other disease.

When it is difficult to drink water, eating food and then even talking becomes a great difficulty. While this condition is common in adults, the situation is a little more difficult for growing children who often go to the doctor with throat problems.. Major Causes of Sore Throat


Viral and bacterial infections like colds, flu, colds, chicken pox usually attack the throat and cause pain.Dry air: This removes moisture from the nasal, mouth and throat cavity, causing the throat to become dry and cracked and hence painful.

It usually occurs during winters. Cigarettes, tobacco smoke, air pollution, chemicals and also other substances in the environment can irritate the throat. Loud talking, shouting, and even prolonged singing can cause inflammation of the vocal cords and muscles in the throat, causing a sore throat and hoarseness. A cut or injury to the neck can also cause a sore throat.

Sore throat symptoms can vary depending on the cause.
