My dd11 had a T&A 5 years ago. And I think had 1 positive rapid strep since then. She has other ongoing issues....yeast, anxiety OCD. But this past week she complained of being very tired and having a sore throat. Neg rapid strep at Pedi on Wed. He started her on Augmentin 500 anyway. We stopped the Omnicef 600 she was on daily. Since then her throat pain is getting worse....on Motrin. She hasn't had a sore throat like this is years. No fever (but she never gets one). Never tests positive to throat cultures. Went back to Pedi Sat. She sad possibly viral..flu or mono. and to keep in touch this week. She has + neck and groin lymph nodes. This AM I decided to do a rapid strep test on her. It was positive. She has been on Augmentin for 6 days. How long on a new antibiotic should you see some pain relief or a negative swab? Thanks. Jen
