Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Persistent sore throat can be due to the bacterial infection.

Hence a throat swab culture is recommended.

Now this can also be environmental allergy related.

If throat swab culture is negative, then symptomatic treatment with a steroid nasal spray and an anti inflammatory medication Ibuprofen are recommended.

In case of infection, you will need oral antibiotic for treatment.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
