Now I have a sore throat and cough, my middle son has been dealing with it for over 2 weeks. They gave him steroid shot and antibiotics he felt a little better for 2 days now crappy again.
my youngest son had it, went to the Dr, tested for everything flu, strep, covid, all came back negative. Sent off a strep test it was negative, he had red spots on the rear of the roof of his mouth.
whatever it is, is viral so can’t treat it with antibiotics so we just wait.
we have all tested negative for covid, my question what if this is a strain that doesn’t show up in the test?
Hate to hear this. Omi will show up in a test but day three post symptoms is the best time to test. My wife tested negative on the rapid test on day 2 but they took a PCR the same day and it came back positive a few days later. Odds are though if both strep and flu came back negative short of a bad cold its covid, which is scientifically a really bad cold.
