Your child may have recently been exposed to a classmate who has been diagnosed as having Strep Throat. This is a bacterial infection, which can be spread by secretions such as saliva or nasal secretions.
Your child could develop symptoms of Strep Throat within a week of exposure.
The symptoms of Strep Throat may include a very sore throat, difficulty swallowing, and tender swollen glands in the neck, fever, chills, runny nose or even referred pain to the ears.
If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, your Family Physician or Pediatrician should examine him/her for an appropriate diagnosis and therapy.
