Check with your doc: Your symptoms and findings sound more like strep throat but why not be certain and get a quick test at your local doctor's office.

Sore throat: You should have an evaluation by a physician who may elect to perform a throat culture. It may even be a viral culture if the appearance is consistent by their judgement.
