Customer Question

My 2-year-old son spent every day last week with 3 other kids who have since been diagnosed with strep. We took my son in on Monday after he woke up from a nap barely able to talk and he was tested for strep. It was negative. He's still got a nasty cough and generally out of sorts. Can it still be strep? Could we have had him tested before he had completely come down with it?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?
Customer: Since Monday. He was completely fine even in the morning and then woke up in the afternoon from a nap with the cough seemingly out of the blue. But it was severe and we knew the other boys had strep so we took him in immediately.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no
