Sore throat: Seek medical attention today it could be just post nasal drip from nasal congestion / virus but it could also be strep which if not treated could have serious consequenecs. So get tested for strep today. gargle with salt water 3 -4 times a day and drink OJ about 1 qt a day x 3 then taper down to a glass a day ,but seek medical attention
