Dr Oz: Sore Throat vs Strep Throat
It is that time of year when we are all doing our best to prevent getting sick, but when a dreaded sore throat begins to cause you pain it often leads to fear and worry that it could be due to something serious. Dr. Oz revealed the most common signs of strep throat, which are:
- Red, swollen tonsils with white spots or pus
- A high fever (101 degrees or more) that lasts for a few days
- Bad breath that is often described as metallic in odor
Dr Oz: What Causes Rheumatic Fever?
Dr. Oz says if strep throat goes untreated it can cause a great deal of harm and lead to Rheumatic Fever, which is a disease that can affect the heart, brain, joints and skin, so it is important you do not ignore the signs.
