Complications could include:
Pharyngitis is inflammation of the pharynx (the back of the throat). This can cause soreness, scratchiness, and difficulty swallowing. Most cases occur during colder months when the humidity is low.
An airway obstruction is a blockage in the airway. It may partially or totally prevent air from getting into your lungs. Some airway obstructions are life-threatening emergencies. They require immediate medical attention to prevent death.
