What Is the First Sign of Strep Throat?

Severe throat pain that comes on rapidly is usually the first sign of strep throat. The condition is likely to show additional symptoms as it progresses, including:

  • Fever and chills
  • Swollen tonsils and lymph nodes
  • White patches on the tonsils
  • Red patches on the roof of the mouth

How Is Strep Throat Diagnosed?

Strep throat is typically diagnosed with a rapid strep test. To administer the test, a provider will need to obtain a sample by swabbing your throat with a cotton swab. This may be uncomfortable and can cause gagging, but it is usually a painless process. Once collected, the sample will be tested in a lab for the presence of the bacteria that causes strep throat. Rapid strep tests work quickly and results are usually ready in just a few minutes.

Once diagnosed, strep throat can be treated with antibiotics. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may also be recommended to relieve symptoms.
