You treated something 2 days ago and want to know what to do now?  Are your symptoms the same?  I would continue to treat with salt water , honey and/or lemon in tea for a sore throat.  The pain you treat just like you have been as well.  If you suspect strep, you need to go see the doctor.   Are you currently pregnant?

Aw noo, Hi. I suggest the same as Ms.frndlyfn try that if it doesn't not help any Please go to the doctor and let them know what has been going on, it might be a viral infection I've had one a year ago I had a headache, fatigue and no appetite but it was a bad cold I didn't know why my head pain wouldn't leave after taking tylenol 800. I hope you feel better asap, take care

You may be able to talk to a pharmacy about over the counter meds to help with the symptoms as well.   If you were pregnant, the options would have been way fewer for treatment.

 I'd also refrain from yelling if you want your voice to come back, LOL!!!  Just kidding.  I hope you feel better soon.

Throats are vulnerable to bacterial & viral infection & when the throat hurts, as yours does, it's a sign that it has been attacked.  Therefore you need more than an analgesic pain killer.  You need a prescription aimed at fighting the infection itself.  I'm so sorry you are under the weather.
