Donating Blood = Sore Throat?

Hey everyone,
I noticed that whenever I donate blood, I get a sore throat and nausea five hours after the donation, which lasts for a few days to a week. This has happened the past four times I've donated (September, December, March, June), and was wondering why? If anyone knows, can they explain?

I was j/w if I could possibly be allergic to the yellow-orange stuff they use to sterilize my skin? Could that give me a sore throat/cold?
