In brief: Please see Dr.

Anytime you have a sore throat for over 24 hours, it's best to see the doctor and get a strep test.
If it's a virus, all that's needed is symptomatic care, but if it's strep, you need an antibiotic. Untreated strep can lead to rheumatic fever, which can cause permanent damage to your heart and other organs.
