Sore throat is a very common occurrence. Most of the time it is seen that the throat is more cheerful in the morning or morning and it gradually decreases in the afternoon. It is seen that this kind of discomfort increases with the difference in temperature in the environment. This problem can be exacerbated by a viral infection.
