My younger sister went to thedoctor and found out she had strep and my throat has been hurting since last friday, i thought it was just sinus stuff. But can my two month old get it shes not eating real well today and is very crabby and is crying fir no reason..
If you suspect Strep take her in and get her tested. It is just a quick swab and they should have the results in minutes. INSISIT that they test her. My son got strep when he was 8 months old. I went to 3 pediatricans who wouldn't test him for strep. They swore that it was impossible for a baby that young to get strep due to their young immune system. I had strep, DH had strep, and my older son had strep. The Dr's still REFUSED to test him!!! It was so frustrating!! My baby just got worse and worse in the meantime. I took him to an urgent care clinic one night and had a Dr there test him. This Dr was not a pediatrican and didn't know that it was uncommon for babies to get strep. The test came back positive a few mins later. After 24 hours of antibiotics my son was happy and back to normal.
