Sore Throats

By: Pamela J. Beach-Reber, MD, MBA, FAAP, FACEP
Date: November 1, 2015
Sore throat (also called pharygitis or tonsillitis) is one of the most common infections that send children to the doctor. It is seen in all age groups and occurs throughout the entire year. Sore throats can be caused by either a virus or bacteria, but the majority of cases are caused by a virus. Only 20% to 30% are caused by bacteria and require antibiotics. The most important bacteria to cause a sore throat is Group A beta hemolytic streptococcus, commonly called “strep throat”.
