Infectious : Infectious mononucleosis is caused by the epstein barr virus (ebv) and acute infection usually involves sore throat, fever, enlarged lymph nodes (including the spleen), and tiredness. Different people will have a different severity of mono symptoms - some get very ill, some do not get sick at all. It is spread through saliva and close contact which is why it's been known as the "kissing disease". Since it is a virus, it is not treated with antibiotics. There is a blood test available that can test for mono infection and antibodies. The test will tell you if he has ever had it, if he has it now, or if he had it in the past and is now immune to it - all helpful information. A strep test does not give information about any other infections - just strep. I attached a link for more in-depth information on infectious mono below. ...Read more

See the doctor: If you have "strep" throat, which indicates infection by bacteria named streptococcus, you will need to take antibiotics. This is confirmed by testing by your provider.

2 year old has strep throat .taking meds for 3 days..no fever but.now sleeps all the time...is this normal?
Treated ? : A strep infection is very easily treated with penicillins, But you need to complete the therapy. If the fever and other symptoms are gone, the sleepiness should not be an issue.
