Recurrent strep: Please see a physician for a throat culture and additional antibiotics. Recurrent strep throat can happen in cases of antibiotic resistance, improper dosing of medications, underlying immune suppression, being close to a strep carrier. Petechiae(red dots) on the soft palate are an uncommon but specific finding for strep throat.
