No, You need antibiotics. You can ask the Dr. for liquid or a shot. That way you do not have to take pills.

There are NO home remedies for strep throat, which is a bacterial infection. The ONLY way to cure strep throat is to take antibiotics prescribed by a doctor. There are no home remedies. If you do not take antibiotics to cure the infection, the bacteria will spread and cause more serious problems. You need to see a doctor.

I often get strep throat in the winter, gargling salt water helps a lot.

It is unfortunate that you feel this way about medicines. Strep can lead to many more problems that can be life threatening and holistic medicines cannot stop that. You can try and let it run its course and do all the same things you would do for a common cold. However, depending on the type of strep which is occurring, this can lead to a lot more problems. May not be soon either. The infection can go dormant and return later as a stronger and more dangerous series.

I've had strep before and didn't go to the doctor and now my throat looks all scarred up I imagine from that. Anyway if I have a sore throat I drink echinachia tea (Yogi brand) with 2 tablespoons of honey and a little lemon juice. I drink it about 3 times a day hot. I also take a ton of vitamin c and I feel better real quick. If there is anything that will help get rid of it that would have to be it.
Actually I just remembered my boyfriend got strep and I gave him that tea and made him drink it a few times a day and his went away real quick. No meds. I'm not recommending not going to the doctor, however if your not going to go you might as well try it.

Gargling with warm salt water is quite helpful, but I doubt if it will eradicate the infectious bacteria.

Keep in min that untreated Strep can lead to very serious conditions including severe kidney damage and rheumatic fever.

I don't - but just as a word to the wise, make sure you don't start taking anti-biotics and then start, or you'll kill off all the good bacteria and let the bad stuff thrive. Make sure you don't change your mind in the middle of a dosage.

You don't really have to do anything. Your symptoms will likely resolve in five days or so. However, you open yourself to a variety of complications and sequelae such as scarlet fever and rheumatic fever, which can possibly cause severe heart damage.

Whatever you do, please Stay Home. Without conventional antibiotic treatment, you'll be contagious for several weeks even after the symptoms resolve. If you don't want to take drugs, that's your choice, but you have no right to subject others to the negative consequences of your choice.
