Strep throat is going around this week. 

Dr. Jennifer Follwell from Bay Medical-Sacred Heart Family Medicine says symptoms of strep throat include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Stomach ache
  • Sore throat

Dr. Follwell says doctors can diagnose strep with a throat swab.  She says patients should be sure to take all of their prescribed antibiotics to avoid complications, including heart and kidney problems.
