Yes, but: It depends on what & how you test. Office quick tests are reliable in the right hands but some do a backup culture plate. A poor quality sample may not acquire the material needed for the test. Strep can also come up in other places than the throat, like skin infections or a rectal irritation. Not all rashes or belly pain is strep & not all people will get it if exposed.

Get it checked: Out by your doctor as soon as you can for proper diagnosis and treatment. It is unusual to have purple discoloration and changes in sensation in your feet unless the infection is located in that area. It's also important to make sure you are on the correct antibiotic.

Yes: A rash from a strep infection can be itchy, especially when you have dry sensitive skin. You can develop a rash from a strep throat infection (scarlet fever), or from an actual strep infection on the skin (impetigo). The former is treated with oral antibiotics, while the latter is topical antibiotics. Consult with your doctor.
Rash: A rash that turns purple foes not mean that the rash is healing. In fact, it may mean the rash is getting worse. It is best to see a dermatologist to fetermine the etiology of the rash.
Bullseye: You need to have it checked, it may be lyme's disease.
Sandpapery and red: Scarlet fever is strep throat with a rash. The rash normally appears after a fever and appears as a red rash with a sandpapery feel. Some have referred to it as a sunburn on skin with goosebumps. It usually appears on the body and spares the palms and soles of the feet.See 1 more doctor answer
