Sore Throat Symptoms

Mononucleosis is a less common reason for a sore throat. In the early stages of infectious mononucleosis, nondescript symptoms such as lack of energy, body aches, chills, and loss of appetite may begin. After several days, the more common mono symptoms appear -- swollen lymph nodes, fever, and sore throat.

Symptoms of a Sore Throat in Infants

Figuring out whether an infant has a sore throat can be a challenge. Some clues that might help include:
  • Decreased appetite
  • Fussiness.
Another point to consider is that infants do not always have the classic signs of bacterial infections (such as strep throat). For example, an infant or toddler with strep throat might have:
  • Low-grade fever -- less than or equal to 101ºF (38.3ºC)
  • Nasal congestion
  • Nasal discharge.
