Talk to doctor: I think catching a strep infection from camping is at the very low risk category. You should be more worried over GI or sinus issues. Discuss with your doctor re the best choice for your travel destination since clindamycin may lead to serious GI issue for some people and this is not something you would ever want to suffer in a remote area.
