Pharyngitis (GAS) – Sore Throat

I have just read an article in the Oxford Journal of Medicine and along with much of the other work I have done in that area of study I understand that Streptococcal Virus is usually treated with Pennicillian and Ibuprofin if needed. Strep Throat is an inflammation in the Pharnyx, that area of the throat associated with talking and is noticable when it infects the tonsils, when breathing becomes difficult and it is usually water borne and sometimes airborne. Sharing a kiss and sneezing often spread the illness.

If left untreated it can spread into the Gastrointestinal (GI) Tract or Intestines and cause flatulence.
