Strep Throat

Posted by:

Strep throat can start suddenly with fever, red sore throat and swollen glands. In some children and adults, headache, nausea, stomach ache, and vomiting may be more common. A fine raised rash could also occur. 

Strep is contagious, and students need to stay home for 24 hours after treatment has begun. Antibiotics are given to treat strep throat.
