Probable virus: This is most likely the beginning of a viral upper respiratory tract infection which usually goes on to a head cold and runs its course in several days or a week without any specific treatment. However if the sore throat worsens and there is no head cold symptoms, a rapid throat culture is recommended to look for strep throat which requires antibiotic treatment. Meanwhile use lozenges and Tylenol. ...Read more

Recurrent strep: infection occurs about 10% of the time, in spite of taking the antibiotic, and more often if one stops the medication after feeling better instead of completing the course. In the lab, strep is very sensitive to penicillin, but not all people absorb it well or may have other bacteria in their throat that make it less effective. Get another culture and other med.
