What is strep throat?
Strep throat is caused by a type of bacteria called Streptococcus. The pain of strep throat often feels like a sore throat caused by other illnesses. The important thing about strep throat is that you could get serious complications if it is not treated with antibiotics.
Symptoms of strep throat
Strep may be mistaken for a normal sore throat. Symptoms including difficulty swallowing, fever, hoarseness lasting over a week, sore throat for over a week, ear ache, difficulty opening your mouth, rash or lump in your neck.
What is the treatment?
If your sore throat is caused by Streptococcus, your medical provider will probably give you an antibiotic. It is important to take the antibiotic as prescribed–all of it—even if you start feeling better in a few days.
