Of course he will. You're doing a great job. It's tough.

My child just had strep throat and she had all the symptoms you described. Too bad I didn't know earlier. I thought she had the flu and brought her to the ER.

A rule of thumb I learned was the E.R. is for trauma, if you have a regular pediatrician they will meet you after hours in their office (if yours doesn't find a better one). E.R. is not for sick people.

Unless there are white spots on the back of the throat it's not strep.

Thrush? Common sore throat?

FALSE! I am a registered nurse. You do not have to have pustules on your throat in order for it to be strep! carriers of strep are asymptomatic. I have had strep both with and without the physical evidence of pustules

Our kid has had stuffy nose and scratchy throat for several days now, but no fever. I was wondering can it still be strep or just some kind of common virus...

Yes it can. My 10 yr old had a sore throat and a fever for only a day & 1/2. It went away but he still sounded different when he talked. I checked & his throat was really swollen. I decided to take him to the doc today. I also had my 2 yr old checked at the same time because his appetite was off and he was clingy. HE HAS NOT HAD A FEVER AT ALL! BOTH tested positive for strep.
Also, my oldest had NO symptoms once but a bit of a headache. RANDOMLY I asked if he had a rash & to let me see his back. His skin had the bumpy texture as if he had been laying in grass or something but was not red at all. It was weird. I took him straight to the doc. He had strep throat. Had I not asked to see his back fpbc of a random gut feeling there is no telling how long he would have had it.

The best way to tell if it is strep is if there are white spots on his throat, like thrush.

Re: Can strep throat come without Fever??
Yes. I've had it pretty frequently, one time I didn't even have a sore throat. I had really bad kidney pain, was tossing and turning all night, never experienced that before. So, in the morning I Googled kidney pain and saw strep could be the cause, so I checked my throat in a dark bathroom with a flashlight and sure enough, had the white spots of strep. So yeah, fever doesn't need to be present or sore throat.

ABSOLUTELY! My daughter gets 3-4 strep throat infections a year. I'm hoping the next time she gets one, the doc will say...time for the ol tonsils to go bye-bye. When she gets them, all she gets is a severe sore throat that is red and pussey and No fever.
