Strep throat

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Patrick Woodward is on top of another illness that is going around, strep throat.

Strep can make you feel sick. It is the most worrisome illness that comes from a toxin that it releases and can affect the heart, brain or kidneys.

Strep symptoms, especially a fever are worth a trip to the doctor.
