Answer mine please - http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Aqjmy98dW7KlLbQVzec18ITsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20081207121813AAGlO5m

The only sure way to tell if you have a Strep infection is to go to the doctor and have them swab your throat. This takes about 20 minuets and is 99% accurate. If you do not want to go to the doctor, Strep usually causes visible redness in the throat usually with white spots on the tonsils. Have someone check your throat with a flashlight while you open wide and say AAAAAH. If you think you may have Strep, or have had a persistent sore throat, I recommend you see a doctor. Strep or any other infection can become serious and even life-threatening if not treated quickly, not to mention that you will be contagious and could spread the infection to others.

check out the back of your throat in a mirror.
if there are white dots there, you probably have strep.
But just to be sure, you should go to a doctor.

you would have to go to a Dr or a P.S or NP ( all medical professionals!) and get your throat looked at and swabbed. That is the only way to tell for sure if you have strep. They will have to culture it and see if your positive for a strain of the streptococcal infection.

have someone take a flashlight and say ahhh

if you see white patches then thats bad

but i would definatly see a doctor!

Other than going to a doctor and having a throat culture, here is where you can check your symptoms.


Beatles Lover to the Max!
go to the doc they will put these little sticks that look like cotton swabs down your mouth and touch your throat and they will test it and see if u have strep.

go to the doctor and they do a throat test.. it takes about two seconds and you find out if you have strep the next day!

I just got over strep throat. Ugh! If at all possible you are someone you know take a flashlight and look in the back of your throat. If its red with white spots then you have strep throat. It will also hurt like hell to swallow, and you will have a fever.

At least those were my symptoms. No fun!

Awesome Nana
Go to your doctor or urgent care facility and REQUEST a culture.

please go to the dr. and have your throat swabbed.

go to the doctors and have them swab your throat

Your doctor will take a culture and have it analyzed.

Go to a doctor and get a strep test.

I just had one yesterday :/

go 2 the doctors

There are these great people called "Doctors" and they can tell you if you have strep, or just a simple sore throat.

You can find these special people in a "phone book"
