Had oral surgery. Throat red. Why is pain not subsiding? Strep throat?

Hello I had oral surgery 5 days ago and I have had a fever and excruciating pain in my throat. I went to my primary care physician and they gave me a stronger antibiotic and also told me there is no infection and it is not strep throat . my throat is still very red and i have soars in my mouth and in the back of my throat. I do not know what this is.
