Prueba de estreptococos

Prueba de estreptococos

Si alguna vez has ido al médico con mucho dolor de garganta, es probable que te hayan hecho una prueba de estreptococos. Primero, el médico raspa la parte posterior de la garganta con un hisopo de algodón. Después, el hisopo se analiza para ver si contiene los gérmenes que causan la faringitis estreptocócica. Ésta es una prueba rápida, ya que el médico te puede decir en unos pocos minutos si tienes estreptococos o no. Si tienes una infección por estreptococos, el médico te recetará un antibiótico que te ayudará a sentirte mejor. En muy poco tiempo comenzarás a curarte.
