Yes it will ! Breathing through the mouth can produce throat dryness and soreness, which will cause you more discomfort when you have a strep throat. -

Once you have strep, you have strep. Nothing can make it worse. The only issue sleeping with your mouth open is your throat will get dry. Please take the entire treatment course of your antibiotics even if you think you are all better. Get well soon!
