Reply to Strep vs sore throat

I basically don’t take them in unless they have a high fever or a low grade fever for more than 24 hours. Strep also frequently presents with vomiting in young kids. If he seems uncomfortable, is not eating much, has a persistent fever or vomits then I would take him to the doc. Otherwise maybe give it a couple days’ rest and treat the symptoms with popsicles and children’s Motrin. Or call you doctor and ask if a visit would make sense. Ours is pretty good about not recommending visits except when necessary.
