From my experiences with strep throat, I found it got progressively worse even gargling with warm salt water every two hours. I had to get an antibiotic. Try to get to the doctor ASAP. Good Luck!Health Question & Answer

You can't be absolutely sure. Just be real careful. Don't kiss em, wash hands a lot, use hand sanitizer a lot. Don't share towels, wipe door knobs and light switches and that sort of thing with Lysol or alcohol. Fiance should take care of baby for now. When you see the doc ask him for advice too.

Take your antibiotics till they're done. Some people seem to be just prone to strep. I've had it like 10 times, and I don't know of anyone ever catching it from me. People do tend to stay away, though.Health Question & Answer

Most importantly, go to see a doctor to get it treated as soon as possible and stay away from your child if you dont want them to get it!!! It is very easily transferrable. But for the pain, gargle or drink pickle juice. Helps the soreness SO well!Health Question & Answer
