Do I have strep throat infection?

Strep throat often causes severe pain in the throat and pharynx. The pain can sometimes be difficult to understand for those who have not experienced strep throat.

However, the symptoms are quite clear:

  • Fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Sore throat when swallowing

It is often difficult to swallow solid food as the pain is too great.
Actually, strep throat is an infection of the tonsils. By far the most common bacterium that causes this infection is called Streptococcus A. Usually the infection resolves itself, but due to the pain and severely affected general condition, it is not uncommon for it to be treated with antibiotics.
In addition to symptoms such as sore throat, there is often a fever and swollen lymph nodes. They can sometimes be felt as small bumps under the skin in the angle of the jaw about 5 cm below the ears (adult).
