A 41-year-old female asked:

My daughter was on amoxicillin for 3 days prior to being exposed to strep. is it still possible she can get it even though she's been on her meds?

Unlikely: Since strep is killed off by amoxicillin, she is not going to get a new strep infection while on it.It will not prevent her from getting a virus that sometimes mimics a strep infection.
