Strep throat occurs when a certain type of bacterial infection causes the tissues at the back of your mouth and throat to become inflamed, irritated and sore. It is caused by a bacteria called group A streptococcus or GAS. The infection leads to swelling in your tonsils and in the mucus membranes that line the back of your throat. This swelling causes an itchy, sore and swollen sensation in the throat.
