- Environmental agents – cigarette smoking, automobile exhaust fumes, dust, air, pollution, lack of humidity
- Micro-organisms (germs) bacteria and viruses
- Voice strain
3) What are the symptoms of sore throat?

4) What is the treatment for sore throat?
The first step is prevention. However, if you have a sore throat already, here are some options to make yourself and your throat feel better:
- Drink plenty of warm liquids to keep your body fluids up.
- Try to breathe through your nose. If your nose feels congested, inhaling the steam from a bowl of hot water will help it to clear it.
- Avoid alcohol. Drinking alcohol is much more likely to irritate than soothe a sore throat.
- Swallow – it might hurt but it’s one of the best things you can do because saliva is a natural lubricant, which can help soothe a sore throat.
- Sucking an effective medicated lozenge like Gorpils can help lubricate the lining of the throat further, bringing real, noticeable relief.
- For throat irritation due to environmental causes & for minor throat infection, choose one from the Gorpils range, rest assured that it will keep working, even after the lozenge has gone.
