Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
The only way you can get a legal prescription is by vising your doctor.
This is an online website for information purposes only.
Online prescriptions are illegal and cannot be accepted by any pharmacy.
There is no way to know for sure without testing that you have a strep sore throat or not because symptoms of a viral infection are very similar to a bacterial infection (strep sore throat).
So I would strongly recommend that you be seen for this and be tested to find out exactly if you have a strep throat and whether you will actually need an antibiotic or not.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Kind regards
