Strep throat requires treatment to heal the infection and relieve pain.A simple throat swab test detects strep. The back of the throat is swabbed then the swab is tested for the presence of Group A Strep. A rapid test provides quick, in-office results. If the rapid test is negative but the symptoms point to strep, a lab culture test can offer a more accurate result.Antibiotics treat strep throat. Once prescribed and taken, the symptoms resolve quickly for most patients.
