Day after xmas i woke up with a sore throat, No big deal cause i have drainage all the time that causes them in the morning however this lasted all day and into the next day, I was at my mothers for xmas and she was sick. However yesterday at work still with a very bad sore throat, It felt as if something was stuck to the back of my throat when i looked in the mirror i saw 4-5 small white spots. I was told by a friend it was strep and went to the doc that day, However when i was there he didnt not test me for strep just gave me a script for a zpack and i am on day 2 of the meds and the spots are gone but my tough is Heavily coated. and throat still very sore. I was just wondering if it could be anything other than strep? I have not been around anyone sick other than my mother and she didnt have strep.
