Can my son has a false strep test ? He has rashes and stomachache , with 4 friends with strep

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

I've had a rash for about 6 months now. From pictures that I've seen it looks more like jock itch than anything else. But it never itchs

A few possibilities: Jock itch doesn't always itch. Erythrasma causes a similar looking rash; it requires antibiotics by mouth. If you are overweight or diabetic, it could be just irritation from moisture, yeast, or other superficial infection. Keep it clean and dry, and try a jock itch ointment if not yet done. If these don't work, see a doctor -- perhaps a dermatologist if your PCP hasn't been able to sort it out. ...Read more
