Hi, I just registered here. I am a mother of one, a five year old daughter. We live in Arizona.
So my reason for posting here is that I am worried that my daughter may have strep throat. She did get a note from her Kindergarten class that there is a case of strep. I just got done (still have throat swelling) with possible strep (I did not go to the doctor; I took care of it with natural treatments. I took her to the doctor Nov. 8 because she has started coughing and is mucousy at night. She is allergic to some weeds and the doctor prescribed albuterol to see if it helps. She snores at night and mostly mouth breathes.
The doctor did check her (of course) and looked in her throat, checked her lymph nodes. They were fine. I have asked her repeatedly if her throat hurts and she tells me no. I am sure if she had the throat pain that I had, she would have said something for sure. Well I just checked her throat with a flashlight and she has two small white pin spots on the left side of her soft palate. So naturally I am freaking out!
I guess my question is wouldn't she had said that her throat was hurting her?
Edited to add: I just remembered that the doctor did say that her left lymph node was a bit swollen.
Thanks for reading my novel!
