Strep Throat

Common symptoms of strep throat in children and adults include:

  • Severe and sudden sore throat without sneezing, coughing, or other cold symptoms
  • Pain or difficulty when swallowing
  • Fever over 101°F (38.3°C) (Low grade fevers may point to viral infection, not strep throat)
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • White or yellow spots or coating on the throat and tonsils
  • Bright red throat or dark red spots on the roof of the mouth
  • Swollen tonsils, although this symptom may also be caused by a viral infection

Treatment

When you visit Jupiter Medical Center’s Urgent Care, you may be tested for strep throat before antibiotics are prescribed. Antibiotics are effective against bacterial infections such as strep throat. Antibiotics will not help sore throats caused by allergies or viral infections, such as colds.

Antibiotics kill the bacteria and shorten the time you are contagious. Typically, you are no longer contagious 24 hours after starting antibiotics. Antibiotic treatment can begin immediately if a strep infection is confirmed by a rapid strep text.
