strep question

Recommended Posts

Are his titers rising or falling? If his titers are falling, you can try dropping the abx and retest his titers again later. If they are rising, then I would suspect the infection is somewhere besides his throat.


Strep can be in many different parts of the body, and it is hard to culture for them all. Sinuses can be cultured. I have also heard of strep in joints, kidneys (Urine analysis), teeth (rapid strep test on teeth only), and other places as well.

DH had strep 'below the belt' and was playing ping pong Strep w/DS for months and months until we got into PANDAS Ped Dr. C. K., she knew where to look and 4 months later he was finally clear.

Good luck and I hope he's rid of it.
