I know antibiotics aren't popular around here & I myself feel they are overused in dangerous ways. We avoid them as much as possible.
So I'm feeling a bit like a failure & a bad mother for starting DS on his 2nd round of antibiotics is as many months. First he had strep throat & now he has another form of strep, erysipelas.
DS is very healthy. I believe his immune system is actually quite strong. I feel actually 75% confident that he would have beat both of these infections on his own (he has acted "sick" for exactly 1/2 day throughout all this).
But the other 25%... Well, I really do not want to tempt fate & mess with a strep virus.
It'll be ok right? Right?
I'm giving him lots of probiotic (at least an hour apart from the antibiotic) & continuing with vits C & D. Anything else I should do to support his gut & immune system?
Mama to my little busy bee.
