I recently had a fever and a sore throat on Friday on Saturday I was all better and had no pain. Today My throat really hurts to swallow and when I press the left side of my throat it really hurts

Hi Anon!

I'm sorry you haven't felt well - that flu-like feeling is awful.

You may have a throat infection - it could be strep throat. Antibiotics can help to clear it up quickly. You will need to see a doctor for a diagnosis - a test result is almost immediate, it takes about 10 minutes.

I hope you feel better soon!
