Patient :I have a strep throat and a fever for 4 days... I'm treating it by taking the antibiotics my doctor is prescribed to me. I'm wondering why does it take so long to heal? Normally when I get sick with a fever or a cold... It lasts for 2 days because I treat it with the antibiotics my doctor prescribed to me. But, for this strep throat, my throat is still hurting and I'm still getting fevers.
Symptoms: Earache, my nose is hurting, a little bit coughing
