It's possible: Although about 50% of sore throats are viral, it's still possible you have strep throat again. There's actually no limit to how many times you can get strep. The only way to properly check for strep is with a throat culture, so please go to an Urgent Care center or doctors office for a check-up today. Also, drink a lot of fresh water, have some chicken soup & take daily vitamins. Best of luck!
