Possibly: Only way to truly know if you have strep is get your throat swabbed and cultured by physician or nurse. Can go to primary care or urgent care. Could be viral sore throat (pharyngitis) which is more common than strep. Rest, drink lots and gargle with salt water. Ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain.
