Doctor can check: A doctor should evaluate a throat that has been sore for 1 week. An infection such as a cold should have almost healed up by then. Allergies would cause noticeable mucus drip down the throat. Strep throat can be the cause, and would need antibiotics like amoxicillin or azithromycin. A doctor can look to see what is going on, plus to a test for strep throat. ...Read more

On the other hand, the symptoms you describe could be related to a viral illness and unrelated to your sexually activity. You should be tested for STD as soon as possible and before you are sexually active again. In the future, protect yourself, use condoms. ...Read more
