CHILDREN'S HEALTH

Infants

Streptococcal sore throat, or strep throat as it is more
commonly called, is an infection of the mucous membranes lining the pharynx.
It occurs most commonly in children between the ages of 6 and 12. In addition to a very sore throat, symptoms typically include a fever and swollen lymph glands. Younger children may even complain of abdominal pain. If your child has these symptoms, see your pediatrician. A quick test can diagnose strep throat in most cases.

If not treated, some strep throat infections may lead to complications such as rheumatic fever. This serious disease can cause painful and inflamed joints and a skin rash. In more than half of all cases, rheumatic fever also may damage the heart valves and interfere with normal blood flow in your child's heart. There's no cure for rheumatic fever. But it can be prevented by promptly treating infections such as strep throat with antibiotics.

Signs and symptoms

In general, signs and symptoms of strep throat include:

  • Throat pain

  • Difficulty swallowing

  • Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks

  • Swollen, tender lymph glands in the neck

  • Fever

  • Headache

  • Rash

  • Stomachache and sometimes vomiting, especially in younger children

It's possible for you or your child to have many of these signs and symptoms but not have strep throat. The cause of these signs and symptoms could be a virus, tonsillitis or other illnesses. That's why your doctor may test specifically for strep throat.

It's also possible to have streptococcal bacteria in the throat without a sore throat. Some people are carriers of strep, which means they can pass the bacteria on to others, but the bacteria don't make them sick.
