Throat pain, no swelling, sometimes irritating. Why ?

I have pain in my throat. No swelling that I can see, and it almost feels more injury like than the typical sore throat . But I have had no injuries. Started on Sunday, only felt it when eating harder/sticky foods (like pretzils, or peanut butter) but now it is a dull ache that hurts when I swollow. I have had issues with tonsil stones, never painful, sometimes irritating like a slight tickle, but I would remove with a qtip and be good as new. I did have one when it all started, removed it and I do not see anymore. but the pain is slowly getting worse.

Hi..courtneydael.. The above symptoms are suggestive of URTI(upper respiratory tract infection) need to be treated with antibiotic and analgesic... also avoid having ice creams, oily items,spicy until its healed...nothing much to worry...

Take care..
