Not usually: Although a drug reaction called Stevens Johnson Syndrome usually affects the mucous membrane, I suspect that your current problem is just a progression of the initial viral infection causing the sore throat (assuming that strep was not documented). If the problem persists, see your doctor or a dentist. In the meanwhile , ask your doctor if you should continue with ZPak.
