Fever, poor appetite: It is very unusual for an infant to get strep throat. However an older child or family member in close contact with your baby has it, it is possible. In most cases, babies with strep throat are very fussy due to the pain, may have a high fever, and decreased appetite. Every now and then babies can have vomiting and rash from strep throat. It is best to contact your doctor if you are concerned.
