my husband had 2 abcessed teeth extracted the dentist gave him no antibiotics and 2 days later was diagnosed in the ER with pharyngitis
Viruses are the most common cause of pharyngitis. Many different viruses can cause pharyngitis.
Bacteria that can cause pharyngitis include Group A streptococcus, which leads to strep throat in some cases. Other, less-common bacteria that cause sore throats include corynebacterium, arcanobacterium, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and Chlamydia pneumoniae.
It is difficult to answer unless you know what bacteria were infecting the abcess and what was responsible for the pharyngitis.
