I am suffering from sore throat. Three days ago, it initially started with pain and the redness appeared shortly after. I have had strep about three times now. It hurts when I yawn and swallow. I feel a little dry even though I have been gargling with water. I woke up this morning with a thick vertical red line going down my throat. Does it look like strep?

We are happy to help you.
With the details you have provided and the photo you shared (attachment removed to protect patient identity), I have come to the conclusion that you are having an acute tonsillopharyngitis.
This is the infection of pharynx (upper part of the throat) and your tonsils on each side. Now, we can conclude it as a streptococcal infection only based on the culture and sensitivity swab of the throat.
