Fever is one of the body's way to fight off infection.
Strep throat is a bacterial infection that needs to be treated with antibiotics. Generally, fever resolves within 1-2 days after starting an antibiotic for strep. If it lasts longer or is other symptoms persist for more than 4-5 days, check back with your doctor.
