They rub a cotton swab on the back of your throat, and after that in less than an hour, if the test proves to be positive, he will know he is dealing with a streptococcus. But the test can be negative, and then, to be sure whether or not a strep throat, it will test called a throat culture. It takes about 2 days of testing to be ready.

If the doctor based that you have a strep throat, it will give you antibiotics. Usually, the most prescribed antibiotic is a form of penicillin. It is important to complete the treatment, even if you begin to feel better.
In addition, you can take acetaminophen to get rid of pain, fever and pain, and have soothing drinks, but you should avoid spicy and acidic foods.
To prevent the spread of bacteria, it is important to stay home the first 24 hours after starting antibiotic treatment.
