    Strep Throat

    About two months ago I went to the doctor. She stated I had a sinus infection. I asked her if it was viral or bacterial. She state bacterial after a finger-stick. She prescribed me 10 days of Cefdinir 300mg twice a day for ten days.

    A couple days after finishing my antibiotics, I was back at the doctor. My throat was not hurting, but tender. She did a blood-stick and strep test. Positive for strep. 10 days of Amox-Clav. Still positive.

    Now I am on 10 days of Penicillin VK 500 mg 4 times a day. I still have 4 days left. Friday they did a strep test just to see. Still positive. Again, I still have 4 days to go.

    That said, I now have Thrush too!

    Iím getting a little frustrated.

    The reason I too the antibiotics was not for the step, but to make sure the strep didnít turn into something else.

    Now, I find out that Thrush can get in your blood stream and kill you.

    In retrospect, no antibiotics and let my body heal itself.

    Any positive comments or suggestions appreciated.

    Re: Strep Throat

    Just went back to the doctor today. It was positive again for strep. 80 antibiotic pills and 3 antibiotic shots and I am still positive.

    They took a culture today.

    I just finished the Penicillin today.

    Questions:

    1. Will the step become more resistant if I don't take anymore antibiotics to see if I am symptomatic?

    2. Could I be a carrier?

    3. What if the strep can't be killed?
