If your throat is still sore and running a temperature, it is best to get seen by a physician.
Viral infections are common at this time, but an inspection of the throat may reveal pus, redness
at the tonsils/pharynx at which point a throat swab is important.
Streptococcal sore throat
will require antibiotics for 7-10 days.
If there is throat swelling, antihistamines will help in lowering the inflammation/odema.
