    00:00 So in a nutshell, remember: pharyngitis is a subjective symptom.

    00:05 This is a sore throat, this is what your patient feels.

    00:08 Tonsilitis - this is an objective finding.

    00:10 This is what you see when you look inside the throat.

    00:13 Strep throat is a bacterial infection so it should be treated with antibiotics to prevent complications.

    00:20 Rheumatic fever can affect multiple body systems and this is a common complication of strep throat.

    00:26 Glomerulonephritis is not prevented by antibiotic treatment.

    00:31 And abscesses that form in the throat are usually drained for management.

    00:35 Thank you for watching this content on common throat infections.
