Hello, wondering if anyone had tested positive for group b strep during pregnancy and was allergic to pennicillin? If so, what alternative did your doc give you to reduce the chance of infecting baby?

  • You can actually treat it holistically with garlic. I don't have any information saved unfortunately, but it is 1 peeled clove of garlic inserted into the vagina, I am just not sure how many days you're suppose to do it. You can look up "Treat GBS with Garlic" for more info OR fine a naturopathic doctor in your area who can give you more information or other options.
