Sore throat and phlegm accompanied by colds and sneezing most often occur due to inflammation of the upper respiratory tract, such as rhinitis, sinusitis, and pharyngitis. These inflammatory triggers can range from viral infections (including Corona virus that causes COVID-19 disease that is currently endemic), bacterial infections, allergies, gastric acid reflux, irritation, foreign body entry, benign or malignant tumors, disorders immunity, drug side effects, and so on. In more severe cases, inflammation can also spread to the lower airway. In this condition, more frequent complaints of tightness, coughing, etc.
If a new complaint appears 1-3 days, and if you are at low risk of being exposed to the Corona virus (such as never traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area, never contact with people from the COVID-19 outbreak area, and never have contact with sufferers COVID-19), so in fact you can be calmer.
