What are the symptoms?
Pain with swallowing
Pain may go from the throat to the ears
Redness, swelling, and/or white patches in the throat
What’s going on behind the scenes?
As with many other conditions of the head and neck area, allergies and reflux can cause chronic, low-grade throat pain. Pain related to these causes is usually mild, and symptoms may fluctuate. Infectious causes like tonsillitis are usually obvious and resolve with antibiotic treatment within 10 days.
