Word! Strep Screen

Strep Screen

Say: strep screen

If you've ever gone to the doctor with a really sore throat, you may have had a strep screen. First, the doctor touches the back of your throat with a cotton swab. Next, the swab is tested for the germ that causes strep throat. This is a quick test and your doctor can tell you in minutes if you have strep throat. If you do, the doctor will give you a prescription for an antibiotic, which will help you get better. Before you know it, that frog will be out of your throat!
