Strep Throat

With the weather being so wacky, the kids are all getting sick. We go from 40/50 degrees down to -9 pretty much over night. My daughter slowly got a sore throat, and a lite cough. While my nieces got sore throats, fevers, and pains in their stomachs. I am not sure why my daughter has not got strep but both my nieces currently have it.

Do you know how to tell if your child has strep throat, or just a common cold? Strep throat usually gives you certain symptoms. The main being of course a sore throat. My nieces have been fussing for the past few days of sore throats, followed with a temperature, I knew pretty much right away it was strep.

You cannot tell a child has strep just by looking at their throat, in my experience with strep, it is usually a sore throat followed by a fever. My nieces have been running a fever off and on for the past 4 days. If strep throat is left untreated they can also develop a nasty ear infection.

With the weather changing so much, the kids are bound to keep getting sick. How many of you currently have sick kiddos?

Remember when you have a sick kiddo make sure they get a lot of rest, rest will help their little bodies fight off the infection that is invading their bodies.

(I am not a doctor, and the information in this post are only my experiences with strep throat, and the observations I have made when my daughter has came down with strep.)
