These symptoms can be due to streptococcal sore throat. The symptoms of this condition are fever, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and tonsillar exudates. Many other conditions like viral infections of the throat, pharyngitis, tonsillitis can produce similar symptoms. Only a clinical examination and tests can confirm the diagnosis. Tests like rapid antigen detection and throat culture may be used. Throat culture is gold standard test for diagnosing streptococcal infection. Consult a physician. Hope it helps.
Take care and good luck!
