Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and kids

throat

not really complaining about her throat hurting. we hate bringing our kids in for every little thing and/or getting put on antibiotics. any ideas?
Consider your drinking water a source. We were on well water and were informed that the constant strep throat infection my kids had could be coming from the water they were drinking. Strep can be passed through water. Ever since we have been on bottled water we have been in the clear. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/283902'>recurring strep throat in our family</a>.
) Also, my baby cousin went to a sitter where all the kids got strep and they took her to the doctor just to make sure she was ok. That doctor told my Aunt that kids can't generally get strep under the age of 2. It comes out in the from of a cold. I know doctors have differing opinions, but that is what she was told! Hope this helps and hope your daughter is feeling better soon!
One of my children never got a fever with strep. Would just feel tired and throat hurt. When you looked at throat you could see white blotches and then we knew for sure.
When my daughter was in her teens she kept getting strep throat and tonsilitis. She would have an injection of penacillian and that would help for a while and then it would be back. Someone suggested Hydrogen Peroxide therapy. We tried it and it worked great. Never another incident of strep throat. Hydrogen Peroxide therapy is using food grade (35%) H2o2 orally. You start with just a drop or two in a glass of liquid twice a day, gradually progressing until you are using thirty drops.

I haven't had strep throat since i was in high school for mono. I recently got it 2 weeks ago and they put me on Cefzin and 4 days later it came back. New doc put me on Z-pak. 5 days.. Now I see another white patch in my throat! What is happening here? My kids go to daycare 1 time a week and it seems they always bring something with them home! Should I go to an ENT doc? is it my tonsils? they are alwauys enlarged...thanks!
This in something I have hardly ever done (ie oral sex after intercourse) but now I have strep throat. I haven't gone to the doctor, just started amoxicillian I have here (four kids) and it has cleared up (also a rash on my face) in a few days. Is it a coincidence or do I need to avoid this act in the future.
Our pediatriacian thought maybe the joint pain may have been caused by strep throat. So we had a strep culture, and there were still antibodies in his throat (Assuming because he had strep throat weeks before that was undetected). The culture was positive, however our son had only had 1 day of sore throat with a short fever 4 weeks prior to this throat culture. The doctor then wanted our 3 yr old to give blood to look or Rheumatoid factor and Titre tests, so we did that today.
In the last 3 months, my daughter has had strep throat 4 times, and I have had it 3 times, all 7 cases confirmed by positive throat cultures. My daughter has taken penicilin the first 3 times, then the fourth time both Clindamycin and Rifampin (the latter given the last 4 days of the former). Our entire family of 4 was tested to see if any of us are carriers, with negative results. My tonsils were removed as a child, yet there is talk of removing my daughters (seems pointless to me).
yes I have detoxed with kids I to have 3 girls 14,11, and 4 and it is scary because you start feeling like your a horrible mom and your neglecting your kids but the truth is your saving your life so you can stay with your kids don't let the devil persuade you into thinking I need a pill to be a good mom because the truth is we are much better moms without the pills and we will be alive which is much more important then suffering through a detox which is hell but heaven at the end getting clean i

The first episode just 2 months ago I beleive was full blown strep- with fever for my daughter and sore throat. The Dr has had up follow up with a few strep screens to make sure its gone and both of my kids come back positve with no /little symptoms. My daughter still has a runny nose. But thet both have tons of enery and feel great. My husband and I have no symtoms and also test positive. How in the world could we all be carriers?
Signs and Symptoms The classic textbook symptoms of Strep Throat are sore throat, a white film covering the tonsils, tender and enlarged neck lymph nodes, and fever of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. These classic symptoms, however, are seen in only 10% of the cases. A Strep infection could present with any combinations of the above symptoms. The symptoms start about three to four days after exposure to the bacteria.
They say a lot of kids can get the tics or ocd from strep. Some don't even know they had the strep, but they have an antibodies test and if it is positive they can give antibiotics. How long do the tics last? What else might he exp? What do I need to look for? I haven't noticed any OCD symptoms. Lot of hypo symptoms.
When she's with her mom, she's in a house with 3 smoking adults, 4 other children, 3 dogs and 2 cats. She has just moved into this house with her mom's BF and his kids and the smoking within the last 4 months. DH hates the smoking issue and has talked to her mom about it SEVERAL times trying to figure something out. (We don't smoke or have any pets.) Well, she has had strep throat 6 times in the last 5 months. DH and I don't know what to do!
hope he feels better but all of those sign and symptoms tell me strep and or the flu with little kids they get the nasuea and fever runny nose and very scratchy sore throat try to give him a warm salt water gargle to soothe the throat. hope that will make the little one feel better. this darn flu.
I don't know what part of the country you are in, (I'm in the south)...and one of my kids had strep, and the other had a viral infection that had exactly the same symptoms!! I took that kid everyday for a strep test, because I didn't believe that the results were right! Just be careful medicating yourself. Also, some antibiotics are designed for certain areas of the body/types of infections. Some are specific, and some are broad spectrum. Hope this helps...
Yes, unfortunately, kids CAN and DO get kidney stones just as adults. The really difficult thing with kids if they get them is the simple fact that their "plumbing" is smaller, so it can be even more difficult and painful for them to be able to pass the stones without intervention. I'm glad she's feeling better now - hope it will continue and you won't have to return to the ER.
My 8 year old son has freqent sinus, strep and ear infections. He had his first strep throat at 8 months. He has had tubes in his ears twice. He is on antibiotics several times each year. He is on his 4th antibiotic in the last 9 weeks (they just aren't working). He had his tonsils removed two years ago and still gets strep two or three times a year. We have gone to an allergist - he has no real allergies to speak of, only a mild dust allergy.
It is Tuesday and he is complaining of sore throat and fever. I have another son who yesterday was diagnosed with strep. They gave him same med. Can my son already on Amox. catch strep? Should I keep him out of school a day?
He said its Luke strep throat but down there. Has anyone else had this before.He said when I go into labor I will be given penicillin. He said its a test for the baby and could make them sick.Anyone else went through this before?
which many bacteria such as the one that causes strep throat do not have. If you think you have strep you need to get a throat culture done.. and get on some anti bios quick though cause it can get nasty if untreated... if your throat got better on its own than it was a cold. or virus Good Luck!
I started to meet my ex boyfriend call him what you like after a 3 month split on May 1st, we had heavy french kissing and he had a severe cough and is a heavy smoker, the next morning we had anal sex and then i attempted oral on him and since then i have been very poorly, feverish and sore throat, i went to a dr on May 7th he said i had a sore throat i never really associated the two, i took the anitbiotics but i never improved, and then i was on holidays with my family and i just kept getting

How do I know if I just have a virus or strep? I have spent a FURTUNE in doctors bills this and the past few months and would love to avoid another trip to the doctor and don't want more antibiotics. I have had 3 rounds of antibiotics for bronchitis, and strep in the past 5 months. I would totally ride this out and not worry so much but I have several medical tests/ procedures scheduled for out of town to diagnose some esophageal issues I have been experiencing.
OK, I have NO KIDS and WORK AT HOME, and I wonder why I get strep throat 1-2 times a year for as long as I can remember. The doctor seems to not understand either (just me and husband live at home) I even made a home gym 2 years ago to get out of that environment. I'm otherwise healthy (history of RA), very clean and use antibacterials when in stores, public, wash hands frequently, etc. I do get seasonal allergies and I do still have my tonsils. Should the tonsils be taken out?
