Hives and strep and getting hard throat culture

Recommended Posts

My 8.5 son diagnosed a year ago with pandas and is in azithromycin and Zoloft and doing pretty well. He got hives last week and while better are not all gone and there isn’t anything new and we can’t figure an allergic reaction. Can hives be a symptom of strep? He has no other symptoms but has been more distracted in school than normal. Also any tips on getting throat swab if we go as he will fight us and refuse to open his mouth? Any other ways?

What are you going to do if the culture is positive? (just to note the value of fighting with him...)

Hard to believe it will be if he is on long term antibiotics.

Hives could be a virus as well.
