Seek care: Could be strep and that should be treated. If it is strep and is not treated you would be at risk of getting rheumatic fever later. Just stop in for a rapid strep test a your doctors office. If negative it might be early and should be followed by a dna test or a culture for confirmation of the negative rapid test. Best.
