Virulent Oddball Strep in Florida

Recommended Posts

A neighbor family of 4 (who spend most of their time in NC) and 3 of their recent house guests all were diagnosed with strep on the last two days.


The doctor they went to said that it is rampant right now and presenting in strange ways.


Two kids came in who tested positive and their only symptom was rectal itching.


Ok, this sounds nuts, but can strep live in water? There is a popular place to swim that is brackish (intercoastal waterway)but very shallow and very warm this year. I recently read an article where several people got staph infections from walking in the surf on the gulf side (we live on the Atlantic side).
