Treating Throat Infections

There is growing information about throat infections in children. One of the things we can do in the office that I think is very important is a strep culture. We’re able to culture and see if bacteria is causing the problem. If, in fact, it is, we need to make sure that we get an antibiotic on board that can treat it. There are resistant strains and antibiotics always don’t work. But what we find is that certain antibiotics have a much better place in the treatment of these throat infections. We watch for them very carefully, and try to find out which is the best.

We always appreciate your comments.
