    Chronic sore throat

    hi, im 18 years old, about 2 months ago i had the most HORRIBLE sore throat ive ever experienced, it went away after a few days and returned again after 1 week, now its gone again and i havent had a sore throat for about 6 weeks now. hardly any pain but a bit of swelling on my tonsills, also a very uncomfortable feeling in my throat, im just curious as to what this could be? ive had a blood test and a throat swab, both came back fine, doctor said it could be a viral infection but does my story sound like it? is that what a viral infection does? please help i havent been able to sleep or eat because of this....

    Re: Chronic sore throat

    Did your doctor check you for an ear infection? Sometimes the symptoms overlap. I have had strep throat when I though it was an ear infection and vise versa. It could be a virus. I would suggest brushing your tongue and buying a tongue scraper(it gets rid of all the nasty bacteria that lays on your tongue). Also rinse and gargle with Listerine which is one of the few mouthwashes to kill germs effectively. And if you want to go overboard you could rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide prior to brushing. I hope that helps some.
