My husband and I have the same thing. It is a virus that is circulating. It appears like strep throat with the pharyngitis/tonsillitis and "strawberry tongue." However, we both have a very sensitive spot on the left side of our tongues in addition to the "enlarged taste buds" at the back of our throats. It is quite miserable. We saw different doctors, both of which prescribed antibiotics for the bacterial infection. This a strange virus for it not to be strep. However, after being on antibiotics for 3 days, there is improvement. Unfortunately, we have new rogue viruses cropping up everywhere.
