Could It Be Strep Throat?

Sore throats can result from various causes, including viral infections like the common cold or the flu, as well as bacterial infections such as strep throat. Differentiating between these causes is essential for determining the most appropriate treatment.

Strep throat, unlike sore throats caused by viruses, results from a bacterial infection, often requiring prescription antibiotics for treatment. While only a medical professional can provide an accurate diagnosis, specific symptoms may suggest strep throat, including:

  • Pain when swallowing
  • Swollen and red tonsils
  • White patches on the tonsils or throat
  • Red spots on the roof of the mouth
  • Swollen neck lymph nodes
  • A fever of 101 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
  • Chills
  • Body aches
  • Loss of appetite

Son kissing mother
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today.
