DD (6) has had several bouts of strep in the last year. Today she was again diagnosed with strep and put on antibiotics. She had not pain or fever, just horrible bad breath (I am not exaggerating here, it was so awful!) and a few little white spots. I thought she has those things on her tonsils where food debris get stuck, but the culture was positive. Usually when she has strep she vomits a lot and has a wicked sore throat. She does have big tonsils and is a restless sleeper, but no apnea that I have noticed. 22I heard somewhere that you can be a strep carrier -- ie have it all the time. Anybody out there know?
