Two days ago the left side of my throat got sore. Now both sides, and I'm spitting orange phlegm. Looking at my throat with a flash light, the only visible symptom is redness. If this sounds familiar, please let me know.
Thank you.

I've got that right now; the doc says it's strep throat or something similar, and prescribed penicillin.
