What is Pharyngitis?

Description of the disease

Pharyngitis is inflammation of the back of the throat, often caused by infection.


  • Acute pharyngitis
  • Chronic pharyngitis


Symptoms of pharyngitis include sore throat, difficulty swallowing, cough, voice changes, and sometimes fever.


The main cause of pharyngitis is infection, such as viruses, bacteria, or fungi. Pharyngitis can also be caused by irritation, such as allergens or harmful substances in the air.


Pharyngitis is usually diagnosed based on symptoms and examination of the throat by a doctor. In some cases, a throat swab analysis may be needed to identify the infectious agent.


Treatment for pharyngitis depends on its cause, but usually involves the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, gargling with antiseptics, drinking warm fluids, and resting.


To prevent pharyngitis, it is important to observe personal hygiene rules, avoid contact with the sick, strengthen immunity, ventilate the room, and avoid hypothermia.


Pharyngitis is treated by an otolaryngologist (ENT doctor).
