Treating Acute Pharyngitis

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.
