Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for the query.

Sore throat is most likely from a viral type infection. Recommend you stay well hydrated. Get plenty of rest. Use ibuprofen as needed for discomfort 400-600 mg every 8 hours.

If sore throat persists beyond 2-3 days and if you have fever then would recommend you see your primary doctor for exam and strep test to see if you might need an antibiotic.

Thanks again for sending the query.
