Re: chronic sore throat

A relative or even your family pet could be the carrier that keeps re-infecting you. Have your pet or family members checked. Someone's dog kept reinfecting the whole family.

Also has the doctor checked to see that your immune system is functioning normally?

Re: chronic sore throat

I am not a doctor, but would a blood test to count your platelets and white blood cells show how well your immune system is?
