Doctor :   Than you for your question. It is possible that you may have contracted bacterial pharyngitis. This could be caused by s treptococcal bacteria (strep throat) or other bacterial organisms. It is important that you have this examined by your doctor in person and having a swabbing sample of the back of your throat taken to be sent for testing for the causative agent of this infection. You will most likely be prescribed oral antibiotics to treat this infection. Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
