Antistreptolysin O antibodies
will be raised after infection with streptococci. Levels greater than 200 units per millilitre are considered significant
The ASO test is primarily ordered by itself or along with an anti-DNase B to help determine whether a person has had a recent streptococcal infection
. In most cases, strep infections are identified and treated with antibiotics and the infections resolve. In cases where they do not cause identifiable symptoms and/or go untreated, however, post-streptococcal complications (sequelae), namely rheumatic fever
, can develop in some patients, especially young children.you didnt mentioned your age(?)
Since you been diagnosed early and if you take antibiotics as advised by your doctor,you wont develop the above mentioned complications.so do not worry.
