What to do if you have strep throat

is a disease caused by a streptococcus bacteria group. It is very important to treat this disease, because there are cases where it causes arthritis or heart.

When the doctor founds that the patient has strep throat, he will prescribe antibiotics. The drugs help the immune system to get rid of bacteria. Usually the treatment lasts ten days, and we have seen that, after 24 hours have passed since you started treatment, you will feel much better, and you are no longer infectious. But it is very important to continue the treatment until the 10 day period is over, because the remaining bacteria can develop resistance, and a worse infection can occur.

It is known that strep throat is very contagious. If someone from the school, a friend or family member has strep throat, there is a chance you can get that too. If you’re near someone who has strep and that person sneezes or blows his nose, the bacteria can spread to you.
It is important not to share the same spoons, forks, towels, and wash hands as often as possible. You can not avoid bacteria, but you can reduce the chances of developing a .

If you go to the doctor, first it will look in your mouth to see what is the status of your throat and tonsils. The throat may be red and swollen tonsils and covered with white or yellow spots. It is also possible to show stains on the roof of your mouth.
In determining whether a strep throat, the doctor will perform a rapid strep test.
They rub a cotton swab on the back of your throat, and after that in less than an hour, if the test proves to be positive, he will know he is dealing with a streptococcus. But the test can be negative, and then, to be sure whether or not a strep throat, it will test called a throat culture. It takes about 2 days of testing to be ready.

If the doctor based that you have a strep throat, it will give you antibiotics. Usually, the most prescribed antibiotic is a form of penicillin. It is important to complete the treatment, even if you begin to feel better.
In addition, you can take acetaminophen to get rid of pain, fever and pain, and have soothing drinks, but you should avoid spicy and acidic foods.
To prevent the spread of bacteria, it is important to stay home the first 24 hours after starting antibiotic treatment.

There are some things you can do to prevent strep throat, if someone in your house, it has, but it is important to know that there is no one solution to prevent infection, you can reduce the chances of getting it.
You should keep cuts and wounds clean, wash your hands regularly and make sure that the person with strep covers his mouth when you sneeze or cough.

  2. “And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them. And you threw not, when you threw, but it was Allah who threw that He might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.” Quran, 8:17This should be the attitude of Muslims when they see victory on the battlefield. You never see Taliban boasting their success against Soviets or NATO invaders, because they understand all praise is due to Allah (swt).

In alta ordine de idei, promoveaza tu un joc din care sa invete pustimea ceva bun, macar o info utila pe zi…si sa aiba sansa sa si castige ceva…Ideea e ca e perfectibil si niste oameni chiar au gasit acolo prieteni si se simt bine.

At the time it did not occur to me that the Universe might have been giving me a list of people whom I could contact about the phenomena.Anyways I lost that CD…

  38. it…”). And yet, when I teach Marxism or Liberalism to my students, they recur to caricaturised versions of such ideologies and their debates. I have students from the PSUV who think that anything that is nor the Marxist left (and not even all of it) is a buch of fascist-running-dog hysteria. And I have liberal students (some Hayekians, some Friedmanites, some Sombartians) who feel anyone else is “socialist”. They get a reprimand and not too good marks, but what else could I do? Assault AvilaTV?

  39. I really couldn’t ask for more from this article.

  40. I remember that song, Steve. I don’t know where I heard it. Perhaps on the radio. It is strange how so many songs like that one are stuck in my head. If you hear a song that is a little catchy a few times it seems to last forever in your memory. At least that seems to be the case for me.

  48. "Serbs have more of a chip on their shoulder then Bosnian muslims do"…Hmm… how about we let Serbs drop bombs on America for 78 days just like America did to Serbia. How about we let the Serbs knock down all the bridges across the Potomac like America knocked out all the bridges across the Danube. How about we let Serbia detach Texas and California from America like America detached Kosovo from Serbia. Then we'll see if Americans have a "chip" on their shoulders….

  54. STOP THE INSANITY. STOP THE PRESSES STRESSES. My recommendation to you and Quico, when he gets better, is to get up off your behinds, force yourselves to do more walking and to eat sensibly. Oh, and breathe deeply, every now and again. You don’t want to end up like Barreto, and worse.

    ,its strength is also its weakness. I can understand people rating the websites as per their experience but when I went to their forum was shocked to see the so called supportive guys there ( bad attitude still there ).So overall its a good addon but the thing is as said in the movie ” Spiderman “, with great powers one gets big responsibilities as well and the kind of support they have over the forum I fear that it will not take much time to outdate the addon with a new one with better functionality ( dont worry its there in my to do list when I will switch to programming lolz )

  82. Does this automatic rebuild differentiate betweenruntime-depends || buildtime-depends?Yes, it’s very specific. The rebuilds are only triggered when required to satisfy slot operator deps, and updates of buildtime deps are irrelevant for packages that are already built and installed.I don’t want to rebuild libreoffice just because of someinclude/SomeThing.h build dependency …You won’t have that problem, because those kind of deps are buildtime only and they don’t involve slot operator deps.

It’s really pertaining to building connections with these vendors who at some point will become purchasers. So, once you give your time and effort to helping these retailers go it alone : the “Law involving Reciprocity” kicks in. Thanks for your blog post.

  106. Well done article that. I’ll make sure to use it wisely.
