I couldn't read your response to my post...it's not showing.
Anyway, here is a update on the situation.
Went to the regular doctor today. She checked him out, tried to do throat culture, my son refused...was scared...so she walked out of the room, came back with a presciption for broad range antibiotic....AZITHROMYCIN sus. 200/5ml
She said that she thinks he has strep, but can't be sure without a culture. But all the signs are strep; swollen glands, red throat, fever couple days prior, nausea, etc....) But she said that even though she doesn't know if it's strep, she'd prescibe the antiobiotic anyway..because he also has RED EARS (inside).
I tried to drill her about the antibiotics, saying that I don't like giving it to him, i haven't done it for 3 years...bla bla.
She said that if it's strep, I should worry about rheumatic fever, etc....
