How long ago did you or one of your kid's have strep? When did you/them start feeling better?

I'm curious how long before she starts feeling better after starting the antibiotics. We found out that's what it is this morning and she had her first dose earlier today. Will she feel better after nap or does it take a day or two? It's been so long since anyone I know has had it, I don't remember.

  • Usually within a couple days of being on the antibiotic they start to feel better. But for me, I have chronic strep throat issues..ugh. Once, I was sick with it for 6 weeks! The antibiotics werent working for me and I ended up getting Scarlet fever.
    But so far, I've been lucky with my son, when he's had it, he feels better pretty quickly after starting the meds.
