Group B trigger?

Recommended Posts

This is TMI, I know, but I (myself) had been feeling itchy down below and in light of DD's recent flares, I took a look with a mirror (she was positive for perianal strep last year.) I saw the red ring that looked just like she did, so I went for a culture... it came back + for Group B strep but my PCP says no need to treat and that it's not the cause of the itching... can Group B strep cause a reaction in PANDAS kids?

Yes, I have heard so - would take a bit to find out where I heard/read it.  All I can find right now is a comment " In some of the US groups there have been discussion about other kinds of strep." (other than A).

Thank you - I did not have much luck researching either. I will email the dr. tomorrow and ask. My own doc certainly doesn't appreciate the risk factor I'm dealing with here. He said it only needs to be treated if you're pregnant.
