Hello,

Strep throat is a bacterial infection which if left untreated can lead to many complications. A cycle of antibiotics is needed to treat the infection. I also recommend to use anti inflammatory medications to relieve the inflammation. Gargling with salty water can help the sore throat. I also recommend to drink a lot of liquids.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
