My 20 year old daughter has sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and UTI symptoms. Throat culture showed Strep B. Dr gave Keflex- is it necessary?
I'd take it: Strep B is not known as a throat pathogen but does cause an occasional UTI. I would assume the throat issue is viral (no strep A) and the Group B strep as cause of the urinary symptoms. The keflex is a reasonable choice. The throat issue and related nodes should pass in the next week or so with no particular treatment. ...Read more
