No, it takes a bit to kill off the germs, and then the soreness will have to heal.
It's quite possible that your sore throat will be improved but not completely gone after 48 hours on the antibiotic. It's important to increase your fluid intake at this time. Amoxicillin/Clavulanate is the drug of choice for strep.
