Strep Throat

Strep throat is caused by a bacterium called Group A Streptococcus.

It is the most common throat infection caused by bacteria, and can be highly contagious. It is usually found in children between the ages of 5 and 15, although it can occur in younger children and adults. Strep throat infections usually occur in the late fall, winter, and early spring.

Symptoms may include:

  • A red and painful sore throat (pharyngitis)

  • White patches on tonsils

  • Swollen lymph nodes in neck

  • Fever

  • Headache

  • Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain

You can get sick within 1 to 3 days after being exposed to the germ. Once infected, if untreated you can pass the infection to others for up to 2 to 3 weeks even if you don't have symptoms.

Strep throat infection can lead to complications if left untreated, so it is important to get an accurate diagnosis. There are two tests commonly used to identify Strep throat. One is a rapid test that can detect the presence of strep in 10-20 minutes. If this test is negative, it may be followed up by a culture, which takes 24-48 hours to get the results but is generally more accurate.

Strep throat is treated by antibiotics. Most sore throats are caused by viruses however, which will not respond to antibiotics. Material is provided for informational use only.
