The most common symptoms of pharyngitis are: reddening of the throat and tonsils, swollen lymph nodes and glands, hoarse, scratchy voice, raw uncomfortable cough, high fever, respiratory difficulty, rash in the throat, white or gray patches of tissue in the throat, blood in phlegm or saliva, nausea, appetite loss, strange taste in the mouth, itching or burning sensation in the throat, and pain while talking or swallowing.
Pharyngitis is typically caused by a virus that your body will fight off over time, so treatment is usually aimed at lessening symptoms. While less common, acute pharyngitis may also be caused by a bacterial infection. When this is the case, antibiotics are the best course treatment.
The following may help relieve symptoms of pharyngitis: honey, gargling salt water, chamomile tea, licorice root, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and peppermints.
