How do u know if u have strep throat?


Strep throat is a bacterial infection that affects the throat and tonsils. The symptoms of strep throat can vary, but common signs and symptoms include:

  1. Sore throat
  2. Difficulty swallowing
  3. Swollen and tender lymph nodes in the neck
  4. Fever
  5. Headache
  6. Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus
  7. Rash
  8. Stomach ache
  9. Nausea and vomiting

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important to see a healthcare provider for a proper diagnosis. Your healthcare provider may perform a rapid strep test or a throat culture to confirm the diagnosis. If the test is positive, your healthcare provider will prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection.
