Should I work out if I have strep throat?!

Question: Should I work out if I have strep throat.?
I will clean the equipment off and stuff, but can it make it worse.? Hard to breathe.? It's not that bad, it's just like having something kind of prickly living in my throat, am I ok to go.?Health Question & Answer

Firstly - if you do have strep throat it's important to take antibiotics because the antibody made to destroy strep can cross react with the heart, causing problems in some cases.

I wouldn't advise working out. Rest and let your body recover, it may be frustrating, but you will get over the infection quicker.Health Question & Answer

Aside from the fact that you will be wearing your body down, you will expose people in the gym to strep. Ask yourself if you would want somebody with strep to be working out in the gym right before you do.Health Question & Answer
