The best way to avoid strep is to stay away from anyone who looks or sounds sick. Such a person may have a sore throat, swollen glans or a fever. He or she may also have nausea and rash on the arms and legs. Also, try not to share any personal items with someone who is sick. These personal items include cups and plates, knives, forks, spoons, toothbrushes, food and drinks. Wash your hands and your children's hands often. Or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Always clean your hands before you eat and after you use the bathroom. Meanwhile, keeping a healthy and balanced diet may improve your immune system and help you combat the bacteria. You may want to stay away from processed junk food and some fast food. Keywords: prevent strep throat, strep throat prevention.
