I have had a sore throat for five days with negative culture

Resolved Question:

I have had a sore throat for five days with negative culture for strep. No fever just a little achy and again a sore throat. Can this be H1N1 virus?

It would be extraordinarily unlikely to have any sort of influenza (including those caused by H1N1) without a fever. WIth a negative culture, it is far more likely to be an "ordinary" virus.
