You simply got a virus since you were vulnerable. With the fever you have, you could officially say you got the flu. Call a physician and stay in bed.

Go back to the Dr.... you need to make sure its not flu or mono (but those wouldn't give you a runny nose). Penicillin will always kill strep in the lab (they don't even test it anymore). But two things - amoxicillin is usually preferred over penicillin - you get higher tissue levels and you don't have to take it as often. Also, sometimes - you have harmless bacteria in your throat that are penicillin resistant - they protect the strep from penicillin. You might need something like Augmentin or clindamycin (clindamycin works better if its really gone on for too long). But if your not improving call your dr.
