Quoting lilmzzgreeneyez *NMOA*:" how long after you start antibiotics are you suppose to change toothbrush and all? (if you had strep or some kind of respiratory infection)"
I recently had strep and my doctor said after I was done taking the antibiotics to toss the toothbrush. I never had a doc tell me that before. I almost didnt get treated for strep... went in and the doc said "Hmmmm doesnt look like strep" I said "Hurts like hell, it's strep. I know what it feels like." Rapid strep didn't turn up anything. The doc said they could send out a culture if I wanted, and I was so sure I said to do it. He said "Do you want antibiotics? I really dont think its strep but if you are sure you can take them and stop the antibiotics if the culture is negative." LOL 2 days later "Yup you have the form that doesnt show up on the rapid strep test." TOLD YOU SO! lol
I finish my meds in 2 days... I forgot about the whole new toothbrush thing!!
