In brief: Pharyngitis

Fever and sore throat are common symptoms that suggest either a viral or bacterial infection of the throat called pharyngitis.
The viral infections will resolve on their own. The bacterial kind such as strep is best treated with antibiotics. A healthcare provider could quickly assist you in deciding how to treat
