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. ...Read more

The former is treated with oral antibiotics, while the latter is topical antibiotics. Consult with your doctor. ...Read more

Small purple dot next to rash, what is it? Had rash for 10 days, I think it was a bug bite. What is the dot?
Tiny bruise: My guess without seeing it is that it is something called a petechiae, which is the doctor word for a very tiny bruise. Many insects inject tiny amounts of venom that can cause decreased blood clotting, and create a tiny area of bleeding like this or an outright bruised area around the bite. If more and more pop up, then need to see doc as petechiae can have other reasons to be present than bites. ...Read more
