Strep Throat

Are the signs and symptoms of strep throat in infants and toddlers?

The information above is seen in those most likely to have a strep throat infection, including older children and teenagers. However, other age groups may experience some different symptoms with a strep throat infection.

  • Infants with strep throat more commonly have a thick nasal discharge, low grade fever (< 101 F [38.33 C]), reduction in appetite, and fussiness.
  • Toddlers (children from one to three years of age) with strep throat may complain of a sore throat and a subsequent decrease in appetite, and swollen lymph nodes in the front of the neck beneath the mandible (lower jaw bone).
