Allergies- House dusts, dog or cat danders, and pollens are cause of sore throats
Irritation- Pollution or unhealthy air, a chronic stuffy nose, pollutants and chemicals, dry heat, and straining your voice can cause sore throats.
Reflux- Chemicals and acids in your stomach pushes back up to the throat, and causes you to wake up with a sore throat. That is the reason why people or teens should not eat hot Cheetos or any kind of junk food containing these.
Viruses- Viruses are the main reasons why sore throats have happened along with reluxes. Catching a cold or flu, eating spicy foods, and getting infected from a sick person can spread germs and viruses to people.
How do you prevent a sore throat?
Wash your hands with soap and gel often each day, especially when you go to eat food with your bare hands.
Avoid harmful chemical irritants. Burning of fossil fuels, smelling smoke, and toxic household chemicals are likely to irritate your throat.
Do not eat spicy foods, even if they taste good.
Clean your house in case there might be dust around.
Maintain a good hygiene.
