Tests and diagnosis discussion for Strep throat:

Throat is swabbed for culture or for a rapid strep test (10-20 minutes) which can be done in the doctor's office. If the rapid test is negative, a follow-up culture (which takes 24-48 hrs.) may be performed. A negative culture suggests a viral infection, in which case antibiotic treatment should be withheld or discontinued. (Source: excerpt from Group A Streptococcal Infections, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
