Sore throat and Manuka Honey

What causes sore throat?

symptoms of a cold

Sore throat can be caused by viral or a bacterial infections. Most common sore throats are caused by a viral infection like a flu mononucleosis or common cold.


A mononucleosis is a viral infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus that can last for up tot 4 weeks and cause in addition to a sore throat, fever ad chills, headache and swollen glands

A bacterial infection can be a more serious cause of a sore throat being caused by a streptococcus, hemophilius or a mycoplasma.


A streptococcus infection usually causes Scarlet Fever or strep throat.
The danger about strep throat is that if it is not treated it could lead to rheumatic fever, which in turn can cause damage to the heart valves.

A bacterial infection can be treated with common antibiotic medication while a viral infection cannot be treated by any medication, it will have to run it s course.

Some strains of Streptococcus Pyogenes will develop immunity to the common antibiotic treatment and the effect could be serious sometimes leading to otitis media or peritonsillar abscess and more.
Taken in excess, antibacterial medication can kill the good bacteria on our body, lowering the immune system. This is the reason many bacterium have developed immunity to medication.
