One of my children was recently diagnosed with strep throat

One of my children was recently diagnosed with strep throat, and now my other child has developed a sore throat. Can you call in antibiotics? 
We do not call in antibiotics for strep throat without evaluating the child in the office, and we do not make exceptions to this policy. This is a very common scenario, and surprisingly a great deal of the time, it does not turn out to be strep throat! At any rate, strep throat can almost always wait until the following morning. You may treat sore throat and fever with Tylenol OR ibuprofen through the night.
