Oral antibiotics can help a UTI but rarely effects carriage. ...Read more

Have gone to my pcp 2 times had a sore throat both test was negative for streptococcus gave me antibiotics and throat huts once more what is this?
Best way to tell: You did not mention if you had swollen glands, fever, etc. A throat culture is the best way to determine if your sore throat is due to a bacterial infection, usually streptococcus. There are many viruses such as mononucleosis that can also cause sore throats, it's not a good idea to take antibiotics for every sore throat. And there are other causes not due to infection such as postnasal drip. ...Read more

My baby was born with severe neumonia. My wife gbs was negative but still received antibiotics during labor cause she was + in the past. What happened?
No one knows how long a labor will be, so should I be induced cause' I am gbs positive & need the antibiotics 4 hours before I deliver?
Not exactly...: It means is mom gets antibiotics when she is admitted to the hospital in labor, hoping that the antibiotics go through the placenta to protect the baby. Because it takes some time for enough antibiotics to get into the baby, the desire is for the baby to not be born until 4 or more hours after mom gets the antibiotics. Mom gets a second dose of antibiotics if labor takes longer, which is common. ...Read more
