Throat Infection Causes & Symptoms
What is a throat infection?
A throat infection is either caused by bacteria or a virus. The most common viral throat infections are also known by common cold and flu.
The most common bacterial throat infection is strep throat, caused by streptococcus bacteria. It is characterized by a chronic sore throat, and redness in the throat.
Other throat infection symptoms may include fever, coughing, stuffy nose, and headache. You may be more prone to experience long-lasting or repeated throat infections if you have enlarged tonsils, deviated nasal septum or post nasal drip.
