Not always Strep: I recommend you go get strep test or even strep culture again as white spots do not indicate strep. Viral infection can present with white spots also.

Look at the picture: Often strepthroat presents as a bad sorethroat, fever, maybe some headaches/achiness, and a nasty looking throat as pictured here. So, if u have these symptoms and your throat is something like this one, likely u have it. Other conditions can do same, so best is to test/prove it by your doc.--simple test in office takes 5min. Good luck.

Maybe/see Dr/get ABX: I can't stress enough to see your/a doctor with this. Sore throat, fever, and chills are symptoms. Diagnosis is by throat culture, and this can be done in a walk-in clinic on the same day. Treatment is with benzathine penicillin/penicillin x 10 days, and it is important to get it within 9 days of onset, before possible acute renal failure that can rarely happen with this disease.

SEE YOUR MD: You need to see an md now and get diagnosed to be sure it is strep and if so it needs to be treated. The toxin the strep produces can damage kidneys and cause a variety of other problems.
