Customer Question

Hi. My daughter has anal strep. She's on her 3rd round of antibiotics. Amoxicillin, which almost cleared it up. It reacted positively right away but didn't kick it 100%. Then Cephanlexin which didn't touch it... now Augementin. It's been a couple of days and I'm not seeing the strong response that I saw with the Amoxicillian. Still bright red in the anal opening. What else can I do to help get this cleared up?

Greetings,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

What are her symptoms now?

Did doctor take any test?

How many days she is taking Augmentin?

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 5 months ago.

I was waiting for your reply.

As you are not seeing any improvement by 3 different antibiotics, you should discuss with her doctor.

Doctor can take swab from the anal area and make a culture and sensitivity test to select the appropriate antibiotic for this infection.

I hope this information will be helpful.
