In Reply to: allergies in my autistic son, does anyone have this problem? posted by Sophie in Arkansas on October 13, 2000 at 23:03:02:
Is this strep common in autistic children with severe allergies or allergies in general? What kind of antibiotic did he prescribe? Is it vancomycin? I am just curious because I have never heard anything about a strep that is common to autistic children. However, Joe gets strep infections about once or twice a year.
I am hoping that his being on the gfcf diet will keep him from getting infections this winter.
: My son recently went to an allergy specialist to have test. The doctor is also testing for foods (related to autism). My son gets very sick with high fevers. The doctor said that there is a strep common in autistics with severe allergies. We are now on a six month round of antibiotics. Does anyone know anything about this or has any loved one with this problem?
