thereishope Posted January 27, 2010 Report Share Posted January 27, 2010 So, I find out that a kid in my non PANDAS son's class has strep. I bring my son to the ped for a strep test to make sure he didn't contract it. He's non-symptomatic with strep. The rapid came back negative, they will run a culture. He also has had a cough for about a week and figured it was allergies and sinus drainage causing the cough. Instead, the ped said he has mycroplasma! He is contagious right now. He shares a bedrom with my PANDAS son. Obviously, the will not share a room tonight. Are my other 2 kids in the clear as long as they don't have a cough? My PANDAS son has a sinus infection but no cough. I know the Augmentin wouldn't protect him from Mycroplasma. I am freaking out. The ped said not to bring the other 2 in unless they develop a cough.My non PANDAS son recieved 5 days of Zithromax. Side note, a bunch of kids in my PANDAS son class has a cough. I now have a headache. Good thing, non PANDAS son not showing any PANDAS symptoms. Will contnue to watch with an eagle's eye. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
