Please answer a few questions for me. Was your boyfriend tested for strep throat? Do you know the name of the antibiotic he took and for how long he took it? Are either of you experiencing fevers, rashes, or significant muscle aches and/or fatigue? Do either of you have any urinary or genital symptoms such as burning with urination, penile or vaginal discharge, itching or pain? Thank you in advance for your information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
