  • You should go to the doctor and get antibiotics. You may want to discuss having your tonsils removed. If you have a fever, you should go. Find someone else who wants to take you to the ER. If you can't find anyone then you may have to just take yourself. good luck

  • strep isnt good for the baby at all. thats why ob's test for group b strep at the end of your pregnancy b/c the bacteria is harmful for the baby. they will give you antibiotics for it, all you have to do is go to an urgent care or emergency room
