Thumbs down No WAY, this can't be happening

Lochlan has had strep so often that we have our own rapid-strep kits. Last night my oldest had a sore throat, so did I. I swabbed everybody (except DH who refused). My DD did NOT have strep- but everyone else DID The baby has only been off abx for TWO DAYS So we're all on amox again. Hoping Loch won't go septic again (he has a way of going septic and getting meningitis w/ strep infections). They're scheduling our intake at the Cleveland Clinic, even though its 5 hours away its our best chance for getting some help (see post below "the rest of the specialists weigh in" if this makes no sense)

In the case of Strep, the oral antibiotics are not as effective as the shot. Therefore, there is a high rate of reinfection. With the shot there is 30 protection from reinfection and it really kills the Strep.

OH KIM! That STINKS!

PLMK if you need help while at the Cleveland Clinic if you go. I live about an hour away & could come help you out.
