Sore Throat For 3 Days No Fever
Sore throat 2-3 days, no fever, thick yellow phlegm spit out 10 days. Cleared but started again with sore throat and yellow phlegm after a few days?
There are a few possible causes. If you had no fever, the likelihood of Strep infection is less than a viral cause. It can sometimes take two to three weeks to clear an influenza infection. If you have fever or persistent symptoms, I would advise a Strep test at your PCP's office.
In the meantime, rest, drink warm fluids and monitor your temperature. ...Read more

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

29/f. Sore throat for 3 days, no congestion, low grade fever, negative rapid strep test. Should I be concerned about mono? When should I get tested?
Not necessarily: While mono is one of many viral causes of soar throats, I would not be overly concerned about not testing. The luck among us get it in childhood when it acts like most other "bugs" & fades quickly. If so you are immune. Adults tend to suffer major symptoms & may be bedbound for a few weeks. The inflamed tonsils of mono are some of the nastiest I have ever seen. If your not that sick, just take it easy ...Read more

Viral?: If it is a primary herpetic stomatitis or flu, which can be very uncomfortable, Amoxicillin will be of no use (unless to treat a secondary bacterial infection). If viral, treat symptoms, it will abate, but stay hydrated! If it is indeed bacterial (bacterial infections tend to have higher fevers) then perhaps a culture and sensitivity test for a specific antibiotic would be wise. Good luck! ...Read more
