In brief: See below.

If you have been diagnosed with a strep test and definitely have strep, please take and complete the course of antibiotics prescribed by your doctor. If you are waiting for a test result or waiting for the antibiotic to start working, you can take acetaminophen or ibuprofen and drink lots of fluids and eat soft foods.
If you haven't been seen yet, please do see your doctor.
