Hey friends- I have been feeling poorly these past few days-- achy--tired--headachy with a nauseous stomach. Yesterday I woke up with a sore throat and looked inside and saw white patchy blistery ulcery looking things on my tonsils. I don't believe I have had any fever to speak of. Do you have to have fever for strep throat? DO the white patches mean I have strep for sure? Just checking before I make a doc's appt as my ins stinks and I don't want to pay for a "false call". Thanks-texasone P.S. I am an adult and I thought you got strep in the winter???
