Sore Throat Follow-up
As with other illness, a doctor should be contacted doctor if a person becomes worse despite treatment. Sometimes, determining whether a condition became worse because of the natural course of the illness, or because of a side effect of the medication the patient is taking can be difficult. (For example, both the infection causing a sore throat and a reaction to medication can cause nausea.)
