Sore throats, including strep throat, can be managed at home for the night. Tylenol OR ibuprofen can be given for discomfort or fever. Other things that can help with sore throat include warm tea, popsicles, ice cream, and 1tsp of honey (if your child is over 12mo.). If your child is having trouble breathing because of the severity of the sore throat, please call us.
