Strep Throat

sore-throat315x244Several cases of Strep Throat have come to my attention this past week.  The changing weather often will bring on the cold and flu season.  Strep throat is a bacterial throat infection that can make your throat feel sore and scratchy. Only a small portion of sore throats are the result of strep throat.

It is important for any number of reasons to clear Strep Throat quickly before the infection is allowed to spread to, or weaken other areas of the body.  Due to the contagious nature of this illness preventive measures should be used when possible.  The infection is typically spread in the form of airborne respiratory droplets.

Strep Throat Prevention

  • Keep eating utensils, dishes, and drinking glasses separate from any infected person.
  • Do not to share food and drinks, napkins, handkerchiefs, or towels.
  • Cover the mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough to prevent the release of infected airborne droplets.
  • Washing the hands frequently will prevent the infection being spread to others.
