QUIZ: Are you sore throat savvy and laryngitis literate?
A sore throat can be so painful you don’t want to speak. Laryngitis can make you so hoarse you can’t speak. How much do you know about these two common conditions and how to treat them?
In Summary: Sore Throats and Laryngitis
Having a sore throat or experiencing laryngitis is inconvenient and painful. The most common causes for both are viruses, like the common cold and flu. Common treatments for viral causes include over-the-counter pain medications, rest, increasing fluid intake, and using lozenges. If you have a bacterial infection, like strep, an antibiotic can help.
