sore throat- not strep

Monday I got a severe burning sore throat with no other symptoms.  Tuesday sore throat was worse I could barely swallow.  Went to MD and had a strep throat test- negative.  Also swollen lymph nodes in neck and slight fever 101.
No other cold or flu symptoms.  I can only swallow ice water or ice chips.  After 3 days I now have a blistery rash on my hands also.  Could this be mono or something else- should I see Dr again?

sounds like scarlet fever, which is what my doctor told me that i had. the rashes on the hands especially explain it.

I would see the doctor again, however, it could be a severe allergy, they can cause all kinds of trouble.
