    Symptoms and Treatments for Strep Throat

    Last updated 5 days ago

    Unexpected illnesses can cause a huge disruption for your family. Strep throat is a bacterial infection that affects the throat and the tonsils that leads to a raw and uncomfortable sore throat. Before you have to take your child to urgent pediatric care, keep reading to learn more about how to spot and how to treat strep throat:

    Significant Sore Throat

    The most common and noticeable symptom of strep is a very sore throat. This usually develops quickly and causes a lot of pain. Strep throat could also make it difficult to swallow. It is also common to have a fever, swollen tonsils, or spots on the back of the throat.

    Other Symptoms

    On top of a sore throat, strep throat can also cause a severe headache. Some people also experience stomach pains. Strep can also cause a skin rash, induce vomiting, and lead to body aches. The illness is often responsible for decreasing an appetite. Since it is contagious, it is very important to seek medical attention if you suspect that you or your child has strep throat, you should get in to see the doctor as soon as possible.

    Treatments

    When you visit the doctor, you will get a throat culture to officially diagnose whether or not you have strep throat. If you do, the doctor will give you a prescription for some antibiotics. This reduces your risk for passing the infection on to someone else and letting it pass to another area of your body. You might also need an over-the-counter medication to lower your fever.

    If you think your child has strep throat, Pediatrics After Hours is here for you. We provide urgent pediatric care in Dallas, Plano, Garland, and Arlington so you can always get the medical attention that you need for your kids.

    When your children start to go to school, they get exposed to a lot of germs that spread quickly. Fifth disease, which is also known as erythema infectiosum, is a viral infection that tends to make the rounds throughout schools in the winter and the spring. Keep reading to learn more about Fifth disease and how to treat it:

    When children develop Fifth disease, they often have bright red cheeks that make them look as if they have been slapped. Although it is extremely noticeable, Fifth disease does not usually come with severe symptoms and does not pose significant risk to your children.
