Sore throats can result from both a viral or bacterial infection, catarrh, or dryness of the membranes. Usually the symptoms clear fairly quickly without treatment, although the bacterial infection known as 'strep throat' (streptococcus) can be more persistent.
Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, the two little organs situated at the back of the throat, which can become painfully swollen from infection.
Chronic sore throats or persistent tonsillitis require constitutional Homeopathic treatment.
Sore throats has been treated by homeopathy.
