Sore Throats

Four out of every five sore throats are caused by viruses and therefore antibiotics do not help. If your throat is sore but you are otherwise fine, there is no need to see a doctor.

Our Advice:

  • Paracetamol and fluids (such as soluble paracetamol)
  • If you are very hot and unwell and can see white spots on your tonsils you may have a true bacterial tonsillitis and you should come and see us at the surgery.
  • If concerned then call the surgery for further advice.
