The bac teria causing the pharyngitis can be of many types but a common bacteria causing such an acute painful infection is streptococcus. Commonly referred to as Strep throat, this infection is very painful and requires prompt treatment with a course of antibiotics to clear this infection. Please seek medical attention immediately to have your throat examined, tested, and start the appropriate medication. Thank you for consulting
