What causes perpetual sore throat?
Q:No, its not strep throat. Is it throat ulcers? or is it an infection from the ear, nose or throat? The temporary fix is one spoon of robitusin a day and one theraflu a week even when I don’t have a cough or cold. Cold air and wind aggravates the problem and renders this temperory fix ineffective. Any ideas, or remedies?

It could quite possibly be post nasal drip. This happens when you have congestion in your head and instead of getting a runny or just stuffed up nose, the mucus runs down into your throat. If this is the case, you should use decongestants. If you smoke, that could be the cause- unrelated to post nasal drip.
