Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep
is a bacteria. Viral sore throat
is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and
(OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. As you are pregnant, do not take any OTC medications without consulting your doctor. You will need to consult your primary care physician for a strep test, which if positive you will be given antibiotics. In the meantime, take plenty of warm oral fluids and lots of rest.
