Arlington Pediatric Throat Doctor
A child’s throat is very sensitive, as it can be irritated for various reasons. Commonly, irritation is caused by the following conditions.
Common throat conditions:
- Viral Pharyngitis
- Strep Pharyngitis
- Post-nasal drip
- Sore throat and coughs
- Strep throat
- Coxsackie Virus
As can be seen above, throat pain can be caused by several reasons. Often times, the terms strep throat, tonsillitis, sore throat, and others are often used interchangeable – but the don’t mean the same thing. When children have a sore throat, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what the cause is. Often times, home remedies can help soothe the pain temporarily. However, if symptoms and pain persist, it is likely an infection that will need treatment from a pediatrician.
