Could it be Strep?


If your sore throat is accompanied by cough, runny nose or hoarseness, it probably isn’t strep throat. Those symptoms suggest a viral infection such as the flu, whereas strep is caused by bacteria. If you display the following symptoms, we offer a convenient rapid strep test at all our Macey’s, Lin’s, Dan’s, Dick’s or Fresh Market pharmacies. *

  • Rapid onset of sore throat  
  • Pain when swallowing
  • Fever
  • Swollen and red tonsils
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Headache
  • Stomach pain / nausea (especially in younger children)

If the results are positive, our pharmacists will dispense antibiotics along with care instructions. If the results are negative, you can have peace of mind that it is likely a virus and our pharmacists will provide over-the-counter recommendations to help you start feeling better.

*Not available at Dick’s Bountiful and Lin’s Overton.

During your visit

After completing a brief questionnaire, a trained pharmacist will perform a throat swab and discuss your symptoms. If positive, you will be prescribed an antibiotic, personal treatment plan and care instructions.

Positive strep test

Strep throat is extremely contagious. Ensure you or your child stay home for a minimum of 24 hours to prevent infecting others around you. After 24 hours of antibiotic, the infection is no longer considered contagious. Antibiotics are an integral part of preventing the infection from spreading.

You should start feeling better one-two days after starting antibiotics. Follow up with your care provider if you are not feeling better after 48 hours.
