Maybe strep mono flu: Nose and throat symptoms can be from flu/cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc., except that allergies usually don't cause a fever. Flu causes fever. The doctor can test again for strep. Strep can recur. Doctors also have a 15-minute test for Flu A and B, so if the problem is influenza, doctors can consider treating with Tamiflu (oseltamivir). Mono is caused by the EBV virus, and can be tested for. ...Read more

College son with sore throat told had mono but symptoms gone in 2 days. Culture came back positive for strep after. Does he need antibiotics anyway?
Likely yes: The rapid tests done for both Mono and strep throat are wrong about 5-7 percent of the time. A culture is gold-standard, and if that was positive, he had strep throat. I suspect the mono diagnosis was made because he had a really gross looking throat and the rapid test came back negative, so the doc told him it must be mono. But cultures don't lie. So he has strep and needs the antibiotics for it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
