It's entirely possible this is a prodromal part of chickenpox but more likely it's a viral pharyngitis

Were it chickenpox there really isn't anything to do for it other than tylenol and fluid and really the same for a viral pharyngitis

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
