6 year old sick again with the same symptoms after...

Taking all of his antibiotics? Wtf! Took him to the doctor a couple of weeks back and he had strep throat. We finished all of the antibiotics. Yesterday all he wanted to do was sleep most of the day, then later he had a fever. Today he is back to coughing and I look in his throat and those little white puss pockets are back all over his tonsils... WTF! Any ideas if its strep again or is it maybe something else?

It might be strep again but his body could have been resistant to the ATB he was on.

Sounds like strep again...not sure if you did this, but it is important after he takes all his antibiotics to give him probiotics to give back his good flora in his intestines, so they can help him get better.  Antibiotics kill everything good and bad. They have a good brand called Pearl that gets about 95% (I believe..cannot remember exact percentage) gets back in the intestines.  Good luck mama!  Sucks when our poor little ones get sick.
