It is most often diagnosed in children from preschool to teenage years. Diagnosis is based on a physical examination of the child throat. Our doctor will start with a physical exam that will include using a torch to look at the child's throat, followed by the ears and nose, as these may also be sites of infection. Next, the doctor will gently start feeling (palpating) the child's neck to check for swollen glands (lymph nodes) and listen to their breathing with a stethoscope.
Throat swab test might be performed. For this, the doctor rubs a sterile swab over the back of your child's throat to get a sample of secretions. The sample will be checked in the clinic or in a lab for presence of streptococcal bacteria.
