In brief: Sore throat

The simple answer is that you just wait it out.
99.9% of sore throats will go away by themselves, even strep. We do, however, recommend treating strep with antibiotics. A simple score will tell you if you need to: if you have 3 or 4 of the following, you should be treated: fever 102; enlarge tender lymph glands; significant pus on your tonsils; and no cough. If you have only 2, get a strep test.
