What's your question: If you have a sore throat, we call it pharyngitis. If it's not sore, it'll probably go away. If it doesn't go away, go see your family doctor. Even if it hurts, most likely it's a virus which won't respond to antibiotics. If you really want antibiotics, check out centor criteria: http://www.Mdcalc.Com/modified-centor-score-for-strep-pharyngitis/. But read this 1st http://goo.Gl/p2vj4x.
