Viral or Strep check: From your description your illness may be viral. A strep test may be ordered at your PCP’s office. Drink fluids, treat fever and rest. If symptoms don’t improve, please see your physician.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You may take acetaminophen for pain and fever, no more that 4 gm in a day, no alcohol, Drink plenty of fluids. If it does not get better in a couple of days, it would be prudent to see your doctor to rule strep throat.
