Can call Dr on video: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor (call first) if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly. COVID-19 infections tend to have cough, whereas strep usually lacks cough but has more throat pain.

Symptoms: Agree with Dr. Kwok. We won't be able to diagnose this for you. However, this could represent many things- Mononucleosis, Strep throat, other viral and bacterial infection and even COVID 19. It is best to consult with your physician to get a better idea of what is going on. Take care.
