Mouth sores, swollen gums, sore throat and fever

I went to a doctor last night about my symptoms, (swollen, red gums with some clearish and gray looking skin on the edges, mouth sores on my throat, gums and tongue,  and fever.)

He thought is was strep immediately and gave me the strep test which came out negative.  However, he said that
happens sometimes and the nurse gathered the sample from the wrong place.

So, overall, I'm not very satisfied with that answer at all. I have never had swollen gums and sores from strep.  
Also, strep or not, I am also looking from remedies for the sores in my mouth.  I cannot eat or swallow anything without pretty serious pain.  Drinking water even hurts.
