This feels like a silly question and one that I should know the answer to, but I want to make sure. My dd11 is the severely affected one out of my four children,but I suspect that at least 3 out of 4 have PANDAS. 4 out of 4 have Lyme. So here's the thing. My dd3 has had strep 3 times in the past 6 weeks. Or perhaps, it has just never cleared. This is what I think because she has continued to have a low-grade fever off and on whether on abx or not. I have seen what I believe to be OCD--wants to eat from a certai. Spoon. And if I convince her to take a bite off of another, she runs to the bathroom to spit it out and cries. Does this mean PANDAS if the strep won't clear, and what can I do to clear it? We have amoxicillin, cefdinir and now augmentin.

Of course, my dd11 is out of control right now, and my ds7 is, too, but I don't know if these only because of strep. My thinking is jumbled, I know. But our appt in north Texas is tomorrow!!!!!

If your child is not allergic to Penicillin....I would suggest a shot of Bicillin LA or CR. I have seen this knock out Strep when nothing else would.
