A sore throat feels scratchy, itchy, dry, and painful, and makes it hard to hard to swallow. Symptoms associated with sore throats include swollen glands, fever, cough, and a headache, usually caused by a cold, flu, strep, or allergies. Most sore throats can be treated at home with rest, liquids, and over-the-counter cough medication, though sore throats caused by a viral infection may require antibiotics.
