IS MY SORE THROAT FROM COLD AIR?
Sore throats aren’t always caused by being sick. Cold air can dry out the tissue in the throat and can cause severe irritation. Symptoms can be made worse when breathing through the mouth rather than the nose. Because of this, it is common for people to have a sore throat from cold weather after exercising.
HOW DO I PREVENT THROAT PAIN FROM COLD AIR?
When running, skiing or simply walking, try to remember to breathe through your nose so that moisture can be added to the air. If throat soreness does develop, it should go away soon after coming back inside.
ARE YOUR EAR, NOSE OR THROAT SYMPTOMS NOT GOING AWAY?
The conditions listed above tend to go away immediately or last a day or two at most. If any of your symptoms are persisting after this period of time, it could be caused by something more serious. At Ear, Nose & Throat, we will identify and treat any potential conditions to get you feeling well again.
