hi everybody,<br>
looks like this is what my daughter got. Do i really have to get antibiotics or can it just heal by itself?<br>
Or is there anything homeopathic may be?<br><br>

Ugh, I went through two rounds of abx for strep in the spring and have lived to regret it (yeast issues)! I wish I had waited it out and let my body heal itself, even if it took awhile longer. I, however, am an adult and I'm not sure what I would do if it were my LO....<br><br>
I would try to get her to take some raw garlic and probiotics (kefir and yogurt would feel good on a sore throat).<br><br>
Do you have a doctor that could/would supervise her recovery w/o abx?

It can, in rare cases, turn into rheumatic fever and damage the heart. If you've actually gotten a lab result that was positive for strep, I'd do the antibiotics, if I were you.
