I am here to help you with your concerns.
Viral infection can cause these symptoms as well in early phases.
However, given your history of fiber glass exposure, this is the likely cause.
Immune reaction from the body can cause these symptoms.
Usually this may take a week to subside.
You need to avoid any fiber glass exposure.
If you do not have any shortness of breath or cough, then this is not a serious exposure.
Ibuprofen, warm water gurgles will help with the pain.
Cepacol sore throat lozenges will help with the swallowing.
strep throat is unlikely based on your description.
viral infection is still possible.
Better to wait out 3 days before resuming your work.
usually within 3 to 7 days your symptoms will improve.

yes that also contributes.
drink lot of fluids --gatorade, fruit juice ( orange, lemonade)
viral infection will not cause fever always.
Lack of white spots ( exudates) does make mono or strep unlikely.
Other cold viruses can cause sore throat, tender lymph nodes and fatigue.
However, the symptoms improve quickly within 3 to 5 days ( max 7 days) usually.
Antibiotic is necessary.
strep is unlikely since your symptoms are mild.
Antibiotic is not necessary
sorry for the typing error.
The symptoms will improve with rest and fluids.
Thank you very much,
Yes it is getting nice here too :)
