    Is it a sore throat?

    Angina is an acute respiratory disease that occurs in the tonsils. In the people they are called "glands". Moreover, redness and sore throat, as well as a number of other characteristic symptoms are not necessarily a sign of angina. Similar symptoms may occur in other diseases, such as, for example, diphtheria, viral mononucleosis. Unlike other diseases, a sore throat, or tonsillitis, refers to a throat infection caused by a particular group of bacteria, most often streptococcus, or streptococcus and staphylococcus. To understand whether a sore throat is contagious is possible from the fact that it is a bacterial disease. Like any similar disease, it is extremely contagious. On the beginning tonsillitis indicate sore throat, coughing, sneezing, runny nose.

    Ways of infection

    • Airborne way. If you do not limit contact with a sick person, the probability of catching a sore throat is very high. It is not enough to know that a sore throat is contagious. How many days it is worth taking precautions is more difficult.According to experts, the danger of infection persists for three weeks, despite the fact that the symptoms of the disease may no longer be pronounced, or even disappear. The incubation period for infection is from 2 to 5 days, its average maximum is 3 days.
    • Autoinfection. Streptococcal bacteria breed in the tonsils. In this regard, in the event of adverse factors - hypothermia, stress, infection may worsen. In some cases, the infection becomes chronic. Then doctors diagnose chronic tonsillitis.

    The reason for optimism can be that the sore throats do not get sick for months. With proper treatment and no complications, the disease goes rather quickly. However, tonsillitis is not worth running. With the wrong treatment or in its absence, there can be serious complications affecting the kidneys, heart, joints. For example, almost 100% of rheumatic diseases are the result of common tonsillitis.
