Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Your concern is understandable but most cases of sore throat
are viral and therefore do not need or respond to antibiotics
A bacterial throat infection
is usually found where there is high fever
and pus seen at the back of the throat, enlargement of lymph
nodes in the neck.
If your doctor examines you and there is no indicators of bacterial infection then only symptomatic treatment would be used.
If there is any indicators of a bacterial infection then antibiotics would be commenced.
I hope this helps
