Strep Throat

I am trying to spread the word. My daughter is 3 years old. I just got back from taking my daughter to the doctor for the second time in two days. The first time we went in due to a 105 degree temp and she tested positive for strep. She was placed on antibiotics. I took her in today because she told me that her private parts hurt. I took a look and she had green vaginal mucus. When I took her in, the doctor examined her and said that she had spread the infection with her hand probably when wiping after using the toilet.

I had never heard of this before, but wanted to let others know it is possible.

  • Wow! I hope she feels better soon!!!


    Have you considered giving her some yogurt to try to prevent a yeast infection from the antibiotics on top of everything else? Just a thought....

  • That is not so surprising. Weird and gross but not much of a surprise. Hope she feels better soon!! I do agree with her eating yogurt while on the meds to prevent a yeast infection.

  • Thanks for the ideas. She take supplements every morning, one of them being optiflora the good bacteria for your intestines. I will make sure to have her eat some yogurt to help out as well.
    Have a wonderful day!
