Dry scratchiness and painful swallowing are the hallmark signs of a sore throat.
A sore throat usually occurs as a result of a viral infection which may present with coughing, fever, sneezing, body aches or a runny nose.
Signs may have more serious underlying conditions such as tonsillitis or strep may include white patches or pus on the throat or tonsils, inability to swallow, a sore throat that keeps coming back or is not getting better, vomiting, skin rash, headache, severe throat pain, swollen red tonsils, or a high fever.
