I have a fever of 102, chills, aches, sore throat (no pus), no congestion. Strep was going through my daughter's school. Should I be seen, or wait?

In brief: That is a pretty

high fever for an adult.
You should be evaluated and have your throat cultured. Waiting will not be a good idea if you do have strept.
