Every year growing up I ve had these bad sore throats but each time they come back negative for strep . I just got over this same sore throat about 2-3 weeks ago.

Hello dear..
All these symptoms indicate that you might be having Pharyngitis.
Management includes:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain.
2. Analgesics like paracetamol
3. Antibiotics depending upon culture & sensitivity reports to remove the causative organism.
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.

If symptoms still will be better to consult an ENT specialist.
Meanwhile...avoid taking cold food & drinks, maintain adequate hydration & take soft, non-spicy foods.
Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.

You have developed Respiratory tract infection.
Sore throat is not caused by Streptococci always.
Please take a good Antibiotic like Cefpodoxime/Cefuroxime with Potassium Clavulanate.Add Anti inflammatory drug and Anti histamine also.
You should do Mouth Gargle along with Steam inhalation.
All the symptoms will come down.
Do not worry.
Wish you speedy recovery
