Patient :I think I have had streptococcus, last week I had pain in my throat, yet I did't take any antibiotics. Now I'm feeling better, and the soar throat is almost gone. I'm just wondering, even though I feel well, is it still possible for the bacteria(streptococcus) to be in my body even after getting healthy?
Symptoms: Sore throat, a bit fever, slack, stiff neck and stiff joints etc..., a bit head pain, later coughing and itchy throat.
