You don't know? Well, that makes 2 of us! LOL! The only way either you or I could possibly know is if you get your throat swabbed and culture sent for analysis. So, I think it's to your advantage (as well as your friends and family so you don't contaminate anybody) to go to the doctor and get yourself tested with what's called a RAPID STREP TEST.
