Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Since you have been diagnosed, you should take the antibiotic course prophylactically even in the absence of symptoms, as you can never predict when you will end up developing the symptoms.
Strep infections can worsen really fast and hence antibiotics are recommended.
A good choice antibiotic would be Cap. Augmentin 625 mg twice daily for 7-10 days. It is a combination of Amoxicillin + Clavulanic acid, which works very well in such throat infections.
Please consult your physician and start the treatment.
Hope this was helpful,
