Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here for your help.
Streptococcal throat infection needs confirmatory diagnosis by Swab test.
Usually streptococcal sore throat is associated with high grade fever with severe weakness and malaise. As far as treatment is concerned, Amoxycillin is drug of choice and people who are allergic to Amoxycillin, we use macrolide group of antibiotics like Azithromycin. In case you are also allergic to azithromycin, then drugs of cephalosporins group like cefixime is used which might show cross reactivity with Amoxycillin group of drugs.
Till you see your doctor, you can take anti Allergic like levocetrizine and do warm saline gargles which are going to help you the most.
In case of severe pain and fever, take paracetamol.
Take lots of hot fluids to sooth your throat.
I hope it helps.
