In brief: Strep throat
The at home treatment for a sore throat not strep is a salt water gargle and hot tea.
However, if you are experiencing fever, increasing difficulty swallowing or pain with swallowing, you should not continue to try home remedies, you probably need an antibiotic, go to your primary medical doctor or an ENT for help.

In brief: Not Really Any
If strep throat is documented through a rapid antigen swab or throat culture, there is no homeopathic or home remedy cure.
Antibiotics are absolutely necessary to prevent any risk of complications, no matter how remote the chance. Rheumatic heart disease, for example, may cause permanent heart damage. Home treatments for pain such as tea with honey, gargling cold liquids, etc may help.
