How do I tell if my baby has a sore throat?

4/5 (1 rating)
Sore throats and coughs are two very common illnesses for children.
You’ll be able to tell your baby has a sore throat if they cry or fuss when swallowing and they may even refuse food because of the discomfort. There may also be an increase in drool and swollen glands are often a symptom.
Sore throats will also usually come with a stuffy, runny nose and oftentimes a cough.
To treat your baby’s sore throat, make sure to give them plenty of cold drinks and possibly age-appropriate medicine to ease all their symptoms. Placing a wet towel in front of a radiator to humidify a room can also help to lessen the discomfort in their throat.
