Can strep throat be prevented?

Strep throat may be prevented by avoiding contact with infected people. Teaching children good hygiene habits, such as washing their hands and covering their mouth when coughing or sneezing, can also help to prevent the spread of strep throat. Replacing toothbrushes after starting the antibiotic treatment can reduce the possibility of re-infection.
