daughter has strep b?? Supermommy08 1 child; 2 angel babies; United States 606 posts

So my daughter a few weeks back was diagnosed with a uti via urine culture. They put her on meds and then followed up this past week and did another culture to be sure it was clear. Well they just called and said she had strep b in her urine culture. So now they prescribed amoxicillian. I asked if I should be concerned and she said no. They did a cbc lab too and that was fine. But now that I think about it, im just curious why that would develop after she was already on a med and I didn't know they could get strep there... she's only 7.

Strep b is a bacteria that's always in and out of our system, it's not a big deal

only time it's a "problem" is if you're pregnant -- it can pass along to your newb. but generally no worries.

Well yeah but that's obviously not an issue for a 7 year old lol

                        if my 7yr old was pregnant, strep B would be the least of my worries.
