General & Family Physician Dr. Bihle Nestor Mbinkar's  Response
Hi, thank you for asking healthcare magic.
I have gone through your query and understood your concerns.
For patients who have had Acute rheumatic fever, it is very important to prevent repeated Streptococcal sore throat infection because this increases the chances of developing rheumatic heart disease. For patients who are in high-risk situations, administration of Benzathine Benzylpenincillin every 3 weeks is justified and advised. This might even go for as long as 5 years or indefinitely in patients with established heart disease or in patients who are frequently exposed to Streptococcal sore throat. The decision to withdraw antibiotics should be after carefully assessing the risk of repetitive exposure.

I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. We will be delighted to answer more questions from you.
I wish him good health
