Re: DNase-b test positive

Hi, I checked it out online and it seems that a positive DNase B result could mean two things, a recent strep infection or rheumatic fever which may present with the following symptoms - joint pain, fever, abdoninal pain, rash, nosebleeds, heart problems and some other things as well. The doctor should order some other tests which may include ASO blood test, ESR Sed rate, complete blood count and electrocardiogram to find out which of the two caused your positive result. I hope this helps. Feel better and take care.
