Allergies r/o COVID: If you have no fever it could likely be allergies; however occasionally patients with this new COVID virus or strep do not have a fever, and sore throat is a rarer symptom of COVID. Try to recall your exposure to dust or pollen or animals or sexual partners. If you can, visit your doctor. If not, monitor yourself for fever and if it doesn't go away with claritin then go to the doctor.
