Strep throat type F

Hello

I got some throat infection back in May. The fast care clinic in the area did strep throat culture, it was negative. They still gave me azythromicin in case it was something else. It did not really help, just a bit. After about 10 days, with symptoms back (greenish mucus coming from the throat when coughing, and right side neck discomfort/pain, no swelling however), went to primary doctor who originally thought it is smth else, but did strep throat test. Came positive for Strep type F, not the commonly found strep type A. Doctor prescribed amoxcillin, as usual for common type A. Helped somewhat, but after 10 days some symptoms still remained. After the end of treatment situation got worse again. Then prescribed clyndomicin, 10 days. Symptoms went away fairly rapidly, no cough/mucus and neck discomfort. Finished 6 days ago, so far feeling normal. However, test still shows Strep F. My doctor sent me to see ENT specialist. Do I really need to see given that no symptoms? And why test still shows it?

Thank you all

Tony
