There isn't a proven natural treatment for strep throat. It's important to treat it with antibiotics. You are not just treating the sore throat; you are preventing the more severe consequences of strep infection, like damage to the heart valves (rheumatic fever) or kidneys (strep glomerulonephritis). If your child is allergic to penicillin, there are other effective antibiotics for strep that your doctor can prescribe.
