It can be spread by sharing food, drink or utensils, through coughing or sneezing, from the spread of mucus from the nose or throat, through contact with blood or semen, or sometimes even through tears.

A sore throat (“Pharyngitis”) and strep throat (“Streptococcal Pharyngitis”) are two different things, but both can make you very uncomfortable when you talk, swallow, or even breathe.

You can get them any time of year, but they are more-frequent during the late fall-winter-early spring months.
