|Rapid Strep testing|
It's a matter of short term versus long term solutions. The short term solution is to quickly treat so everyone can get back to their routine lives, but leaves opportunity for recurrence. The long term solution is to treat symptoms to maintain hydration and comfort for a couple of days and then to treat with antibiotic. This requires more time at home and delays return to school. Which option is better for your child depends on your current needs and long term goals.
Parents chime in: Knowing the short term/long term issues with rapid treatment of Strep throat, will you take your kid to their doctor or walk in clinic at the first sign of sore throat or wait?
