Dear Dr. LJ,

My throat hurts really bad. How do I know if I have a regular sore throat or strep throat?

For just a cold/sick/sore throat, I'll wait it out and deal with it. I'm pretty sure that strep throat needs antibiotics, right?

Also, this is my first week back teaching - I've been talking non-stop for the past 3 days. I though this was just because of that, but it's not helping. Yes, I've been doing the hot tea, vitamins, cough drops, all that stuff. Boo.
