See below

Most sore throats are viral pharyngitis. Fever, severe throat pain, an exudate(pus) on your pharynx or tonsils or enlarged lymph nodes near the angle of your jaws suggests the need for a rapid Strep throat test. Viral pharyngitis should resolve without treatment in a few days. Take some over the counter throat lozenges and tylenol for pain relief.

Dry mouth. Sore throat. What can it be? Mono. Strep throat?

Possible

Sore_throat
Dry mouth is not a common symptom in either mono or strep throat, although, both can probably have people complain of that. Sore throat is common for both mono and strep but can also be seen in a lot of other viral illnesses as well non-infectious diseases such as allergy associated with postnasal drip, esophageal reflux, nervous spasm (globus). More detailed history is paramount in this case.

Is it ok to take roxicet with a sore throat / strep throat?

Yes

Naproxen
Yes you can take Roxicet for a sore throat but it is quite strong and really probably overkill. Tylenol and Advil or Aleve or usually sufficient and safer in any ways because they do to sedate like Roxicet .

Sore throat and stuffy nose should be a strep throat, right?

See below

Neck-throat
Strep throat is not normally associated with nasal congestion or other uri symptoms. So, unlikely to be strep throat.

Can someone have strep throat with OUT a painful sore throat?

Yes and no

Neck-throat
You can be an asymptomatic carrier of the germ who does not get sick with it.Up to 4% of people are carriers year round & they don't show blood test evidence of a strep infection.Some that have an infection have symptoms mild enough not to realize they are sick.
