Re: My 4.5 yr old has strepth throat
my ped says they do tend to have immunity. my 2 older kids were sick around my youngest numerous times and she didn't get it.my oldest had scarlet fever(strep throat with rash)for 2 months and nobody else got it,my youngest wasn't born yet.she slept in bed with me, cause she was so sick, and i didn't get it.hand washing is very important, for you especially.
really watch your child that has it, someone just told me of akid dying from it before Christmas. i had to bring my daughter to a specialist when she got it cause the antibiotics weren't working. the specialist said untreated or reoccuring strep could cause heart damage.thats rare though, the antiobiotic usually work.
