How long does it take for a sore throat to get better?

My throat is pretty sore right now, I can barely talk and I have an important meeting soon.
My question is how long will it take for my sore throat to get better, I know my throat won't make it to today's meeting but tomorrow I have something important too so I need my healthy throat back!
How long?

Well it depends on what is causing your throat to be sore and which medications you are taking for it.

your 'sore throat' could now be a laryngitis or tonsilitis. thats an infection that usually does not go away by itself = you prob will have to take antibiotics. indicator for that is swating (=>fever) trouble swallowing (+ a lot of pain i would guess).
when your breath begins to smell different, its an other indicator for the infections mentioned above.

I had a sore throat (and nasty cough) for 2-3 weeks. After developing an abdominal rash, I went to the doctor and was given an antiviral medication. It was gone in 5 days.
