Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Sore Throat

Try to clear the nasal congestion with a nasal saline spray. If you have allergies, consider buying an over-the-counter oral antihistamine with or without a decongestant. You can use a decongestant nasal spray for a few days. However, nasal decongestant sprays should not be used on a continuous basis.

If the sore throat does not improve over the next week, contact your doctor.
