Say: strep screen
If you've ever gone to the doctor
with a really sore throat, you may have had a strep screen. First, the doctor touches
the back of your throat with a cotton swab. Next, the swab is tested for the germ
that causes strep throat. This
is a quick test and your doctor can tell you in minutes if you have strep throat.
If you do, the doctor will give you a prescription for an antibiotic, which will help
you get better. Before you know it, that frog will be out of your throat!
