Prophylactic Antibiotics

Recommended Posts


My doctor recommended prophylactic antibiotics for my DS with PANS. I'm trying to understand why it would be important to treat prophylacticly with antibiotics when strep isn't the culprit and we've irradiated current infections. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your wisdom, as always.

A couple of thoughts:

1. Antiobiotics treat more than just strep, so prophylactically will protect from other infections that could be triggers.

2. Those of us who have treated prophylatically, have also found anecdotally that the antibiotics seem to have a secondary effect of reducing inflammation.
