  • Symptoms common to a cold, such as runny nose and congestion are not associated with strep throat but if you are experiencing these symptoms along with the previously stated symptoms, you could have both a bacterial and viral infection at the same time.

Another method of how to tell if you have strep throat is to reflect on who and what you have been exposed to recently. Strep throat is contagious and can easily be caught by just being in the same room as someone who has the bacterial infection. It is a common misconception that you must be in very close contact with someone infected, such as kissing or sharing food in order to catch the infection but in actuality it takes very little contact.

Your FastMed professional will take the necessary tests in order to provide an accurate diagnosis and the appropriate medication will be prescribed, if necessary. If you’re experiencing the signs and symptoms of strep throat, stop by your local FastMed in Hope Mills, NC and allow the medical staff to treat you in a convenient, affordable and welcoming environment.
