Group B Strep Infection | Diagnosis & Tests


How will I know I have group B strep?

Your doctor can do a skin culture to see if you have group B strep on your skin. This is done by taking a bit of your skin and sending it to a lab to see if the strep bacteria grow. Your doctor can also do a test on your vagina and rectum to see if it is inside your body. The test is like a Pap smear.
