Cat scratches, breathing problems, sinus pain, now really sore throat, what is the cause?

I suspect you have a viral pharyngitis but you need a throat culture to rule out strep, or, if appropriate, a gram negative diplococcus (neisserian species). ...Read more

If it does not, of if she gets worse or has any difficulty breathing, call her doctor. You should also call her doctor if the sore throat worsens (could be strep) or if her ear pain worsens (ear infection) or for any new fevers or rash. ...Read more
