Brief Answer: treat with penicillin for benefit of doubt Detailed Answer: Hi, The also titre shows evidence of previous strepto coccal infection. A strep infection should be treated with penicillin for at least 10 days in view of the fear of rheumatic fever. The also title normal varies from lab to lab . You did not mention the normal in your lab Normally in children less than 333 iu is normal. What you describe as pain in the ankle but no swelling,arthritis probably also rules out rheumatic event. Esr should be done also. It can be strep pharyngitis also and always need not present with throat swelling( tonsillitis) (If your lab normal is known) ,you can give benefit of doubt and treat wih penicillin or ampicillin for 10 days. Good luck
