Sore Throat and Swollen Glands

You might also have sore and swollen glands in your jaw or neck, a hoarse or muffled voice, and swollen or red tonsils. If an infection is involved, you might also experience a fever, cough, sneezing, a runny nose, body aches, and headaches.

If you’re having difficulty breathing and experiencing severe symptoms, you should visit your local hospital emergency room as soon as possible.

What is strep throat?

Strep throat is caused by a certain bacterium called group A streptococcus or Streptococcus pyogenes. The bacteria normally reside in the lining of your nose and throat, but when your immune system is weakened, an infection can arise.

Strep throat symptoms tend to start quickly with a raw, sore, and scratchy throat. Other symptoms include:

  • Painful swallowing
  • Stomachache
  • A fever
  • Red, swollen tonsils
  • White patches on the lining of your throat
  • Tiny red spots on the roof of your mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Rash
