WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Doctor Sarah Adams, at Carolina Pediatrics has seen several cases of strep throat, RSV and a stomach virus that causes an upset stomach and diarrhea.
Symptoms of strep throat include, sudden, sore throat, trouble swallowing and fever. This is a bacterial infection. Doctors often prescribe an antibiotic to treat strep throat. I can take 3-7 days to recover.
RSV is a respiratory virus that causes wheezing in babies and young children. Many doctors recommend children with the RSV virus receive nebulizer treatments and steroids.
For a stomach virus, doctors say it is important to stay hydrated.
