Dr. Noel Alonso answered:

I suspect my son has PANDAS. Is it harmful to give him yoghurt with streptococcus thermophilus added to it?

Probably ok...

I would agree with Dr. Lurie. At this time, it appears to only be related to a certain type of strep, Group A Beta Hemolytic Streptococcus (GABHS). The link with other types of strep has not yet been made, but if a concern and looking for a good probiotic for children, I would recommend Lactobacillus GG as more than 400 studies to date have proven its efficacy and safety. Hope this helps!

The probiotic medication is ok but is he Ill each time? Are his throat cultures always positive for group A streptococci. Some children carry strep in their throat in low amounts and if they have a viral illness, strep may be blamed on the illness.

Dr. Shaym Puppala answered:

How can you get streptococcus mitis?

Normal flora

Streptococcus
Streptococcus mitis is commonly present in the mouth, gastrointestinal tract, female genital tract, and skin. It is part of our "normal flora;" the bacteria that are normally present in human beings. Occasionally, it can cause infection (endocarditis, dental infections, meningitis), but infections are unlikely unless the immune system is depressed.
