Infection: Sore throat infections with fever have many causes, usually viral and are treated symptomatically with acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and fever. Occasionally strep throat may be the cause and requires antibiotics. If your child has a cough, heavy nasal drainage, breathing problems or will not take fluids orally, it is important to get a doctor assessment.
