Step 1First thing you should do for your sore throat is to avoid any smoke or fumes. It will only make it worse. In fact, second hand smoke usually increased the risk of a sore throat becoming strep throat infection. This is also the case with fumes from fresh pain or household cleaning products.
Step 2If you have a sore throat that last more than 3 days, then you should definitely see the doctor to have a strep throat test. This is where they take a swab sample from your throat and tonsils. The doctor can normally give you the results in as little as 10 minutes. The doctor will give you a prescription for some antibiotics to target the throat infection. However, if this treatment doesn't help, there is a chance it could be mononucleosis, which is a virus that causes throat pain but requires a different treatment than the one for strep throat.
