- When should I get tested?
If you have the following symptoms, you may want to test for strep
- Sore throat that can start very quickly
- Pain when swallowing
- Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus
- Tiny, red spots (petechiae — pronounced pi-TEE-kee-eye) on the roof of the mouth (the soft or hard palate)
- Swollen lymph nodes in the front of the neck
- What is being tested?
A rapid strep test involves swabbing the throat and running a test on the swab. The test quickly shows if group A strep is causing the illness.
- Do I need to fast?
No, a strep test does not require any preparation before the sample is collected.
- How do I get the results?
The results usually take a few minutes and can be delivered in 3 convenient ways: directly to your device through text or email, sent to your home through mail, or picked up in the office.
Other tests I may be interested in?
If the test is negative, but you still suspect strep throat, then a doctor can take a throat culture swab. A throat culture takes time to see if group A strep bacteria grow from the swab. While it takes more time, a throat culture sometimes finds infections that the rapid strep test misses. Culture is important to use in children and teens since they can get rheumatic fever from an untreated strep throat infection. For adults, it is usually not necessary to do a throat culture following a negative rapid strep test. Adults are generally not at risk of getting rheumatic fever following a strep throat infection.

"I recently came into Secure Health Partners to get my blood drawn. I'm not going to lie, I was scared at first because needles aren't my forte so I was very hesitant. The phlebotomist Jesus was so generous in taking care of me.."
