I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I understand your frustrations.
Besides strep, there can be other bacteria also causing throat infection like Mycoplasma, Hemophilus etc.
Hence, a throat culture should be sent out for other bacteria as well.
Soreness and bumps can persist for sometime even after full treatment of infection.
Viral infection is also possible like Epstein barr virus.
