    Sore throat is a symptom of many medical disorders. Infections cause the majority of sore throats and are contagious.

  • Tonsils and Adenoids
    Tonsils and adenoids are near the entrance to the breathing passages where they can catch incoming germs, which cause infections. They "sample" bacteria and viruses and can become infected themselves.

  • Hoarse Voice
