Pharyngitis is another term for sore throat and there is no doubt that pharyngitis is a health issue. It causes much missed time from school and, actually, work. Adults often get pharyngitis as a result of their kids having the same problem. It can spread through schools and then spread through the home. Here’s my feeling. If you’re someone who has pharyngitis, give it a day or so to see how it works out. If it doesn’t get better, have your doctor check you. They can do a culture and find out if it’s a bacterial or viral cause.
