In brief: Maybe strep,flu,etc.

Nose and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc.
.. It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics "right away", which means within the first 3 days of strep symptoms.
