Sore throat off and on for about a month

I have had a sore throat off and on for over a month, more on then off (3 to 5 days of the week).
I took some over the counter stuff at first for allergies then sinus they seem to work but for about 4 or 5 hours. I finally went to the doctor at the time I had watering eyes, sore throat, sneezing and what I think was post nasal drip. He put me on nasal spray, eye drops and an allergy med.
That was two weeks ago, everything is gone, but the sore throat has gotten worse and never really stop the 3 to 5 days a week cycle.

My throat is red and inflamed and I am going back to the doctor in a couple days. In the past he always gives meds, second visit test for strep and if I return test for more. Any ideas on what it could be and should I ask him to test for more then strep? He has even mention removing my tonsils in the past. Is post nasal drip associated with tonsil trouble as well?

I know way to many question for one post, but I am fustrated and confused.

It could be a viral infection. Apparently thats what I have now. I went 3 weeks ago for a test and it came back negative for strep. I was told it was some viral infection and it would have to work its way out of your system. My tonsils were inflammed as well, but I wasn't in any kind of pain.

Re: Sore throat off and on for about a month

Are your ears hurting also with this? It is hard for me to tell if my throat hurts because of my ears or my ears hurt because of my throat.
