Strep throat: Strep pharyngitis is notoriously difficult to diagnose by purely clinical criteria, but the symptoms you mention do not suggest that what you have is strep. It is more probably a viral infection. An allergy is also possible, but seems less likely.

Post nasal drip: You likely have undiagnosed allergies. The allergies cause the sore throat and the sneezing and coughing. The drainage is likely clear. I would try some Flonase a couple of sprays each nostril once or twice a day. Good luck and feel better!

Nasal symptoms: While your symptoms may be secondary to a viral illness or cold, you need to get checked for sexually transmitted diseases in view of the history you gave, go see a doctor and get examined.

Hard to tell: If you were in the urgent care I'd check to see if you have an ear, sinus or chest infection. Perhaps being seen in real life will give more answers. Good luck

Coughing, moderate sore throat, no fever, headache, no stuffy nose, feel a little better in the day, worse at night. What should I take for it?

Cannot diagnose: Sounds superficially like a viral upper respiratory tract infection from which you will shortly recover, but cannot diagnose you long distant. Requires history and physical and perhaps some testing. Either see a doctor or use an otc preparation similar to nyquil for a day or so and see if that does not help.

OTC: There are many products available on the otc market that will help manage symptoms of upper respiratory viral infections. Sounds like you may need a decongestant, analgesic and possibly other. It should not take long to be seen in an urgent care center if you cannot get a rapid appt with your primary care doctor.
