Strep Problems

I have a story from years ago when my children were little. We kept getting strep at our house. I would get a bad headache, one of my children had thrown up, the other had normal strep signs. On the second year of repeated strep battles, we found that our good friends were having the same problems. Their doctor finally found that their youngest son was a carrier. He had no symptoms at all. So he was treated. And both families cleared up. If we caught it again they would do testing, treat it, and we would all be healthy again. So it doesn't always hit everyone the same way. To add to the story, my next daughter was like the second, when she gets strep throat she throws up. But no sore throat. Go see your doctor because I learned through time that strep can present itself differently for different people in the same family.

Out of three children one is ADHD, one has Von Wilabrand, and one has anxiety issues.

Baby Body Skin Rash
by: Kellen (Calumet City)

My two year old broke out on her tummy with red little bumps. Her complexion is fairly dark so the bumps were quite red. The next day her entire torso was covered in a rash and her inner thighs as well. She was complaining of itching and pain when touched. We put medicated powder on her believing it was an allergic reaction to the detergent or even to something she had eaten. Yet when we visited the doctor he checked her throat and confirmed that her glands were swollen and her throat a little red and suggested strep with a scarlet rash. Her skin feels like sandpaper and the bumps are drying up with little scabs. It looks funky but he treated her with some antibiotics.
