I tested positive for strep throat today. I also have a cough. Is it normal to have a cough with strep? It makes it harder to breathe. Thank You
Not specifically: While many with strep will have more drainage that might trigger cough, it is not a common feature of strep throat.If you are having pain associated with breathing it would be worth a call to your doc's office to discuss your change in symptoms.

Diagnosed with strep throat on sunday still not feeling better amoxicillin for 3 days now i have a cough n throat still soar and swollen?
Should be better.: Hello! After 3 days of treatment, you should be getting a little better. It is possible that you have a resistant strain of strep and that you need a different antibiotic.
