Treatments for strep throat include home remedies to sooth symptoms such as sore throat, extra sleep, hydration, and herbal teas. Strep throat must be treated with antibiotics to resolve the infection. If antibiotics are not prescribed for treatment, complications may occur such as scarlet fever, acute rheumatic fever, abscess formation, poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis, or streptococcal toxic shock syndrome.
