Suggest treatment for sore throat and high fever

after 4 days of feeling terrrible, went to an Urgent Care facility on Monday this past week. Was running a fever of 101 and had a very bad sore throat. They did a throat culture (negative for strep) and prescribed ZPac which I finished yesterday. Still feel terrible, running fever of 102. Do I go back to the ER now?

Female, age 21, excellent health otherwise.
