Strep Throat Treatment Online
What is strep throat?
Streptococcus pyogenes, or strep throat, is a bacterial infection of the throat and tonsils. It is a common illness, particularly in school-aged children. An infected person spreads Streptococcus pyogenes through contact with respiratory secretions, such as saliva, mucus, or blood. The incubation period for strep throat is typically two to three days.
Symptoms of strep throat include:
- Sore throat
- Body aches
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Red and swollen tonsils
- Tiny red spots on the area at the back of the roof of the mouth
If you or your child experiences any of these symptoms, it is important to consult a doctor as soon as possible. Streptococcus pyogenes can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
How is strep throat treated?
The most common form of treatment for strep throat is antibiotics. Antibiotics are effective in treating strep throat and preventing the spread of infection. Antibiotics can also help to prevent the development of serious complications. However, it is important to take the entire course of antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor.
The most common antibiotics for strep throat are:
If you are allergic to penicillin, your doctor will likely prescribe an alternative antibiotic.
Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, can help relieve the pain and fever associated with strep throat.
