Understanding Strep and Mono: Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Ignoring the presence of strep throat and mononucleosis (mono) can have detrimental effects on your health. If strep throat is left untreated, it can lead to complications such as;

  • Rheumatic fever.
  • Kidney inflammation, and
  • The spread of infection to other body parts.

On the other hand, mono-infection can cause severe fatigue, enlarged spleen, and liver complications.

Ignoring these issues could prolong your symptoms, make you feel worse, and make it harder for your body to fight the infection. Moreover, untreated strep throat can transmit the bacteria to others, leading to potential outbreaks.

Hence, it’s important to seek timely medical care. You can visit us to get an accurate diagnosis of illness and appropriate treatment to manage the symptoms.
