I have had a sore throat for like a month now maybe more, not excruciating or anything but this nagging sore throat, with intermittent hoarseness actually I have been having trouble with getting hoarse for months but just on and off. I wasn't sick though when the sore throat began, now I have a cold and its gotten worse (last night it was awful with extreme cotton mouth), my tonsils have some swelling. How long do sore throats last? When do you need to see someone about it? I don't see any white spots and its significantly more red on one side than the other.
