Kids tend to get sick often, and sometimes, the symptoms seem like more than a normal cold.

Young children in particular are prone to nausea and vomiting with strep throat.

Watch this video to hear more about the symptoms of strep throat, including the symptoms that warrant an emergency pediatrician’s prompt attention. If left untreated, it’s possible—though rare—for strep throat to lead to complications. These might include rheumatic fever and kidney inflammation.
