i never catch a cold in the summer even though i always have my ac on full blast (not cold but still dry air) and i had my ac off when i fell asleep last night after eating pasta and parmesean cheese i grated off this large block i bought and opened 7 months ago and keep chilled. didn't consume any other foods that day but had been slightly dehydrated. i did google it to see if it was ok to eat parmesean cheese that old. people said it was ok. but i am suspicious now.
i eat cheese often and am not lactose intolerant.
could the cheese be the cause of my scratchy sore throat?

I think the sore throat has more to do with the AC being on full blast. the dry air can definitely irritate your sinuses which can cause throat soreness.
even if the cheese had gone bad it shouldn't give you a sore throat as much as it would inflame or irritate your digestive track1
