A.

Assuming she was diagnosed accurately (by a lab test) and given the appropriate medication, Strep should be improving in a few days.  She hasn't be on the medication very long. The antibiotic is really given to prevent Strep complications, not to help the pain, so hopefully, you are giving something for the discomfort.
If the Strep was not accurately diagnosed, her doctor should consider a viral infection, such as mono, as a possibility.
