I may have strep throat and genital herpes, or coxsackie
Patient :I may have strep throat and genital herpes, or coxsackie virus. I won't have results until next week. Medication isn't helping and am very anxious and in pain. Is coxsackie a likely explanation? My partner became sick the same day as me , but showed food poisoning symptoms, mainly diarrhea. Is it possible he contracted the coxsackie virus also?
