Can you buy antibiotics at the store?
In general, over-the-counter (OTC) oral antibiotics are not approved in the U.S.
Can the body fight strep throat without antibiotics?
If you have strep throat—which is caused by bacteria—your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic, such as penicillin. But strep throat goes away on its own in 3 to 7 days with or without antibiotics.
Can I get a strep test at CVS?
We can perform a group A strep test and get you feeling better.
Why does it feel like I have razor blades in my throat?
Strep throat is different. A sore throat from a strep infection usually comes on suddenly (within hours or overnight). Symptoms include high fever, body aches, headache, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and an extremely painful sore throat (often described as razor blades when you swallow).
Why do I keep smelling poop?
If you have, you may have experienced phantosmia – the medical name for a smell hallucination. Phantosmia odours are often foul; some people smell faeces or sewage, others describe smelling smoke or chemicals. These episodes can be sparked by a loud noise or change in the flow of air entering your nostrils.
