The most: common cause of a sore throat along with a fever is a VIRAL upper respiratory illness which will NOT respond to an antibiotic. If you have a bacterial infection of your throat (Streptococcal or Pneumococcal) an antibiotic may be effective! It is best NOT to use antibiotics without a health professional's input! Hope this helps! Dr Z
