I don't know if i'm getting a cold or strep. What are some symptoms of strep throat in the early stages?

Can you catch bronchiolitis more than once? Is there anything that can be done early when symptoms first show to try to stop it?

Can you catch bronchiolitis more than once? Is there anything that can be done early when symptoms first show to try to stop it?
