How Can I Prevent My Child from Getting Strep Throat?

Last Updated on 9 years by Publishing Team

Strep throat is very contagious. This means it can be passed from person to person.

The best way to stop Strep throat from spreading is to:

• teach your child to tell you when they have a sore throat (then take them to the clinic to be seen)
• teach your child to cover their nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing (preferably into their sleeve)
• make sure your child washes and dries their hands after coughing and sneezing, before eating, and after going to the toilet.
