Strep throat goes through several phases. The acute symptoms will eventually fade in most without Rx. During the sub-acute phase, the body continues to make antibodies and a fraction (1/200) develop long term complications including kidney damage,heart damage(rheumatic fever) and brain injury.Antibiotics can stop the complications if started within ~10 days of first fever.

Strep can be very serious and contagious. It is best to have a doctor examin you and prescribe the necessary medications to help elimiate the infection and help protect you and the others around you.

Dr. Bryan H. Levey answered:

Will strep throat go away on its on, or do you have to take an antibiotic?

You MUST...

Pharynx
...take antibiotics for strep throat. The symptoms will go away on their own. The reason we treat strep throat is to avoid complications like damage to your heart and kidneys. There is no alternative medical treatment (homeopathy, herbs, etc.). When I was in homeopathy class, one of my classmates asked the instructor how to homeopathically treat strep; he said "use penicillin."

Dr. Ted King answered:

can strep throat go away in 3 days with antibiotics and what are the symptoms....can I have it without the white patches but red tonsils?

Yes and no

Neck-throat
You can kill all the germs with 24 hours of antibiotics but the reason for taking antibiotics for 10 days with strep is that it takes that long to get rid of any risk of developing post streptococcal rheumatic fever. Yes, you can have strep without while patches. It is even possible to have strep without even having a sore throat, but that would be unusual.

How long does it take until symptoms of strep throat go away with treatment?

1-3 days

Strep_throat
Strep is a bacteria that remains very sensitive to penicillin. If treated by mouth it can take 2-3 days to become non contagious. If treated with CR Bicillin injection the contagious period is shorter and sometimes more effective. My choice is the shot, your child will feel better quickly and can return to school as early as 24 hours after the shot.

Dr. Olga Nilova answered:

Will strep throat go away completely if treated with azithromycin? Is there a chance that medicine will not get rid of infection?

Possibility

Streptococcal_infection
Strep should be gone if you took the same dose for 5 days. Sometimes though strep does recover after you finish medicine and strikes again.

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

Will strep throat go away without treatment? What happens if I don't get treatment for strep throat, or don't finish my antibiotics? .

See below

Neck-throat
A strep throat will usually resolve without treatment but failing to take appropriate antibiotics can permit complications to occur such as a retropharyngeal abscess or septic thrombophlebitis of the neck veins. Failure to take a full course of antibiotics, usually 10 days can allow non infectious sequella ie. rheumatic fever or post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis to occur.

What can I take for strep throat that wont go away?

Get a proper Dx 1st

Strep_throat
If you had a strep test done & your problems persist after treatment,you may have an additional issue to consider. Mononucleosis will often present with a sore throat & swollen glands & a throat swab may find strep. Strep may be part of the problem or may have just been an incidental finding.Some people carry strep without getting sick. A recheck with some testing may help find your answer.
