Are there ANY home remedies for the Strep Thoat?
...or is one better off seeing a physician?
Gargle with bottled lemon juice like Real Lemon. Trust me, it works
I would strongly suggest that you see a physician who is likely to prescribe antibiotics. This is critical because in many cases the brain can get infected and could lead to permanent brain damage. This could take the form of depression, OCD and other mental problems that would remain for life. The is ample medical evidence to suggest this is a real possibility. It is more likely to happen if there is a genetic disposition for this.
I would not risk strep-throat with home remedies. Antibiotics are relatively cheap. Don't risk your mind as it is one of your greatest asset..
You should see a physician. You should ALWAYS finish anti biotic prescriptions. You could gargle salt water in the meantime though.
The guy with the lemon juice advice is dead on - in microbiology, nothing killed more microbes than lemon juice, not even bleach.
I highly recommend you see a doctor. In the meantime you may find some relief gargling with Cepacol. --courtlneygdtm
So, hopefully you are not still dealing with Strep Throat 4 months later, but I always recommend a Neti Pot. If you incorporate it into your daily/semi daily routine, you will likely eliminate most if not all of your sinus/throat issues. Constantly washing your sinuses is a great way to eliminate the bacteria that builds up. I used to be skeptical of them, but trust me, they work. Also, gargling with salt water is a good way to kill the bacteria in the back of your throat.
Just remember this though, if you go to the doctor and are given antibiotics, a lot of times that will throw off the good bacteria cultures in your body that regulate your digestion and other things. It is a good idea, after finishing a round of antibiotics, to begin a regimen of Probiotics to reintroduce those good bacteria into your system. But make sure you get a good brand otherwise you are just swallowing your money. I use Tree of Life, Primal Defense. It was recommended to me by a nutritionist.
I know that was probably an unnecessarily long answer, but I hope it helps! Always a good idea to start thinking preventative care. Knock the problem out before it starts.
Strep throat is caused by a Group A Streptococcus bacteria and is considered the most common bacterial infection of the throat.
There are no home remedies for strep throat. The only way to diagnose strep throat is to have your throat swabbed and a test done. Antibiotics are the first and most common method of treatment for strep throat. If treatment is not sought by a doctor, strep throat can become more serious and turn into rheumatic fever.
Go see a doctor. Take your medications. And buy yourself a brand new toothbrush. It does no good to treat strep throat if you are just going to reinfect yourself.
One of the most common microbial infection in children is the strep infection. It is possible to quickly see what's the problem with your toddler when it truly is infected. You can find no reasons to stress and panic concerning this since this disease lasts for a short time period and might be taken care of easily. It can be advised to go to your doctor when your child begins complaining and when a number of the strep signs or symptoms happen.
If you have dry cough, I join the others - go see a physician as soon as possible.
If you simply have sore throat from a cold or the Flu, make yourself some chamomile tea and gurgle with It until you feel your nasal ways are clean.
Drink the rest. Chamomile tea makes hard secrets to liquid and you can cough them out naturally.
Strep throat is not anything to fool around with. It can lead to more serious illness, such as Rheumatic Fever. I knew a nineteen-year-old girl who got strep throat and didn't see a doctor. She got Rheumatic Fever, and from that got heart damage. That led to eleven years of the occasional stroke, using anti-coagulants, and eventually brain damage. She passed away at thirty-one years old.
She had gone from a lively and healthy nineteen-year-old to a sickly and brain-damaged young woman within only about a year. Over the course of that eleven years following her initial illness, one medical crisis after another occurred; with each one leaving her with new medical problems.
