Rapid Strep Treatment
Strep throat is a contagious bacterial condition that remains contagious for 24-48 hours after antibiotics have been started. It’s important to seek immediate care and a Rapid Strep Test if you feel ill.
Strep throat symptoms include:
- A severely sore throat
- Pain when swallowing
- The absence of cold symptoms like a cough or drippy nose
- Swollen tonsils or lymph nodes in the neck
- Yellow or white spots on the throat
