Strep throat is a painful bacterial infection of the throat. Symptoms can include fever, a sore red throat with white patches, rash, headache, chills, swollen lymph nodes, and difficulty swallowing. If left untreated, complications can occur. Fortunately, it is easily treatable with antibiotics. Because strep throat is highly contagious, you should see your health care provider if you develop the symptoms described above. Stay home from work or school until you are well.
