sore throat but no other symptoms?

I have a terrible sore throat, I've had it for 2 days now...it's really really bad but I have no other symptoms of anything...no fatigue, no fever, no headaches, or anything.

I'm worried that I could pass this off to my kids...but it's doubtful since I don't have a fever, right?

  • Sounds like strep throat. It's contagious fever or no fever and can be contagious for weeks. Get a swab done, it takes 30 seconds.
