    Can persistent red, sore throat be allergies?

    I have had a sore throat for over a month now. I went to the doc about a month ago to see if I had strep because my throat hurt and it was really red. The results came back neg. and doc said it could be a cold or allergies.

    Now over a month later I still have this sore throat, more of a burning. My throat is very red and kind of goes into the roof of my mouth some. Some of it looks like red lines almost. I do wake up every day congested, not sure if that makes a difference. I am also a smoker so I gues I should go see another doc. I also wonder if mabey it could be acid reflux. today it wasn't burning too bad when I woke up more of an annoying pain. but after drinking coffee, soda, eating dill pickle chips and smoking it burns worse.

    Anyone have anything similar?

    I had this sensation about a month ago. It lasted for about 4 weeks in September. My doctor told me it was allergies. I started taking Allegra D and in about 4 days, things started to settle down.

    I took the medicine for 2 weeks and the throat cleared up.

    I didn't think the sore throat was from acid reflux because I take Nexium every day.

    I hope this helps. I think that mine was caused by allergies.
