sores throat can be caused by viral infection, viral pharyngitis. prednisone in some cases can help decrease inflammation.
sore throat can be caused by runny nose or post nasal drip. allergy medications like claritin or allegra and steroid nasal sprays like nasocort, nasonex, flonase would be better.
sore throat can be caused by acid reflux in which case acid blockers like nexium, or protonix, zantac, maalox, mylanta would be better
so you need to see a doctor to help you find out what might might be causing your sore throat, if it is one of the above causes or something else.
