Lab Diagnosis Appropriate clinical specimens, such as throat swab, sputum, or blood, must be obtained under aseptic conditions. Often, Gram staining can provide useful clues. Pathogenic streptococci require complex media for growth. Best results are obtained with blood agar, which also helps in the detection of hemolysis. Brain heart infusion agar is also good. Incubation is done at 35°C in aerobic conditions for 24 hours. Colonies of S. pyogenes are very small, translucent, and surrounded by a clear, large, and nearly transparent zone caused by β-hemolysis.

Pus-filled vesicles develop and eventually rupture and crust over.
