Dr. can check throat: Mild nose and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc..., except that allergies usually don't cause a fever. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics "right away", which means within the first 3 days of a strep throat infection.
