  1. Ran ASO on my 6 yr old. It came back wnl but he had pos strep July 1. Also his blood work showed he did have milk and wheat allergy as well as grass and ragweed. So I'm looking into the GFCF diet. I'm sure a lot of u are doing this. Can I get your responses on how well this worked for you or yr child and how long before you seen improvement? Thanks to all!
  2. Lactobacillus. One other thing I forgot to mention is the fact that he's always picking at his rear end. I never thought much about that other than maybe he wasn't getting himself clean enough. Then I read on here that sometimes that can mean you are dealing with parasitic infection?
  3. My 6 yr old is on a 30 day trial of penicillin. It has been 4 days and he a tally came home in a much calmer mood today. I gave him a fish oil supplement, penicillin , and a third of an adult dose of probiotic( which he's never had before) within 30 min to a hour he became hyper, silly and defiant. Could any of these be a trigger?

  5. I spoke with DR Grant who is helping Svedo with the upcoming trials. He said when all of these studies were complete there wouldn't be anymore " I don't believe it's real" stuff. Keeping my fingers crossed😁
  6. Has anyone ever had herxing reactions from Epsom salt baths?
  7. How long did it take to see improvement?
  8. Has anyone noticed symptom reduction from penicillin prophylacticaly?
  9. Rowing mom. I'm not sure if he told you but you can use an anti dandruff shampoo as a body wash also, usually a couple times a week. If it comes back. Lather and leave on for about 5 min then rinse off. It helps to prevent yeast also. We always recommended seldom blue.
  10. Pretty common in a dermatology office. I seen this pretty often.
  11. Ok...so my DS13 tries to start public school again this year. He reacts to others pretty rapidly. What do you guys do, when someone in the classroom is either positive or a carrier? Does prophylaxis help with reacting as well? We r scheduled for a T&A aug 27. Hopefully it will help as well.
  12. herx help - bartonella

    I'm kinda confused about herxing. Headache, diarrhea and nausea are all common side effects from septra. Fever can also happen as well. Why would this be considered herxing? My dd18 took it for a unrelenting questionable bacterial throat infection and had all of these sxs, would that mean that she possibly has Lyme and was actually herxing?
  13. bartonella rash

    How quickly did these show up? Right After a known bite or were your cases gestational Lyme?
  14. What natural supplements do u or have u used to help detox heavy metals? Success or failures? Thanks:)
  15. Yes he plays football and baseball year round. He has never c/o breathing issues before. My daughter has on several occasions, especially when running long distance. We have an appointment with a ped infectious dz MD in Charlotte NC tomorrow and I will address this symptom with him.
