sore throat for two weeks

My 9yr old has had a sore throat for about two weeks. Her throat is red but no visible white bumps or pus. Her voice is hoarse but she has no other symptoms.

As she has had it 2 weeks I would have it looked at it could be strep but I would expect her to feel unwell. It may be allergies have you tried giving her a anti histimine ?

I tried an antihistamine and didn't matter. I thought of strep but since she had no other indicators and is continuing extracurricular activities without complaint I figured wasn't strep. Not really sure. May bring her to doc as a precautionary measure

I think that's a good idea, if her voice is also hoarse it may be something like Laryngitis

Brought her to Dr today. Sure enough she has strep. So glad I made the approach
