    questions about strep throat in adult

    I went to the doc on Fri. tested pos. for strep throat. I have been on antibiotics for 5 days. Although my throat is not as red it is still red and I still have a sore throat. went to the doc today and they tested for mono, came back neg. so they did another strep test this came back neg. So doc said the meds are working.

    My question is, is it normal to still have a sore throat after being on meds for 5 days if the infection is getting better? I had a sore throat a month before being diagnosed with strep (not sure if that matters) and I am a smoker. Is it because I am a smoker that I still have a sore throat?

    People I have talked to say that the red throat took a couple of weeks to completely go away but the sore throat was gone in a couple of days. Should I be worried? The doc also said that my cbc was normal. I am just worried that I am never going to get rid of this sore throat, that mabey something else is wrong.

    Any other similar experiences with strep?
