Strep throat, characterized by a sore throat and fever, is a contagious infection caused by group A Streptococcus bacteria (Streptococcus pyogenes). It is a common illness that typically affects children ages 5 to 15, although anyone can get it.
Diagnosis requires a rapid strep test or throat culture, but clinicians may suspect strep based on signs and symptoms, such as throat swelling, a swollen uvula, or swollen tonsils.
The infection typically improves on its own but is typically treated with prescription antibiotics. Discomfort may be alleviated by other medications or home remedies.
