There isn't an antibiotic for sore throat.  He is giving you nasal spray to clear your sinus because they drain down your throat and cause irritation.

i went to a different doctor today and was prescribed amoxcillin. yesterdays doctor was a waste of time. todays doctor was stunned that i did not get antibiotics yesterday, thanks for the help.
