Streptococcal pharyngitis typically is characterized by redness of the throat, with patches of adhering pus and scattered tiny hemorrhages, and fever. The lymph nodes in the neck are enlarged and tender. Abdominal pain or headache may be prominent in older children and young adults. Not usually present are red, weepy eyes, cough, or runny nose. Most patients with streptococcal sore throat recover spontaneously after about a week. In fact, many infected people have only mild symptoms or no symptoms at all.
