Ok...the flu shot thread got me thinking about this. Gitti mentioned that after 3 days your body builds an immunity to strep. I need to know more about this.
I suffered with strep constantly as a child. I remember every couple of months being swabbed at the Drs office, always positive, always on antibiotics (blech), always sick. At 11, I had my tonsils out and rarely got strep after that.
I do not want dd to follow in my footsteps! I remember my mom saying that if strep goes untreated it could affect your heart? Talk to me about strep/immunity/antibiotics.
Surprised they haven't developed a strep throat vax yet. Think off all of those lost work days for my mom...
