My poor litle man who is only 21 months has strep throat!! I feel so terrible for him. He cries every time he coughs which is a lot because on top of the strep he has a very croupy cough. The doc said it's normal for the two to go together. In fact they did the strep culture as a just in case sort of thing cause his throat didn't look that bad. I'm glad I took him in because he probably would have felt worse if I waited. He's on an antibiotic so hopefully he'll feel better soon. Does anyone know of a good sore throat remedy for little ones? Thanks!!

Maybe some frozen juice pops? The cold might feel good on his throat. Hope he's feeling better soon!

He's doing much better! It only took a couple of days for the antibiotic to take effect. I'm glad I caught it early, because he would probably have been a lot sicker! Thanks everyone!
