Wondering if I have strep throat. I have 2 small white dots and a red dot on tonsils. My throat hurts but no cough or fever.
Hard to say: Even well trained physicians cannot always pick out a strep throat from viral based only on symptoms or observations. We use a quick office strep A test & sometimes back that up with a throat culture. The strep requires antibiotics & others don't, so to decide what you need will require an evaluation. Your doc or many urgent care clinics are set up to do this. I would avoid an ER. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
