Dr. Lauren Goode is treating strep throat.
The symptoms are a sore throat that gets worse with swallowing, fever, soreness in neck, headache and fatigue.
You can prevent this problem by washing your hands frequently. Also, avoid close contact with people who have these symptoms.
If you have strep throat, treat with lots of fluids and rest. Gargling with warm salt water can decrease throat pain.
