5 Year old girl was diagnosed with strep b but medication is not working for her. What to do ?

My daughter is 5. I took her to the doctor 2 months ago because of severe vaginal itching and soreness. She was diagnosed with strep b. They put her on an alternate antibiotic because she is allergic to penicillan. It went away. About a week later it started to come back again. They put her on another round of antibiotic. It went away. It is starting to come back again. Do I need to take her to a specialist ? Is there a specialist for this ? She is average weight, height and no medical history . Thanks

I have a 77 year old mother who has been diagnosed with walking pneumonia and strep. She has been to the doctor twice and hospital twice and sent home each time. She has been very lethargic and confused and only seems to be able to get out of bed maybe twice a day. Today her doctor sent her to the hospital for another chest xray and now she is home waiting to see what the results will be. This has been going on for roughly 3 weeks and we do not see any improvement. She is also diabetic and one medication he gave her made her blood sugar go over 300, which at that point she was almost passing out. Is there anything else we can do to help her? She is eating (very little) and we are giving her fluids. Please help, I am extremely worried for her. We have NEVER seen her be so sick.

Hello, (10/16/14) My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with strep throat this past week. I was surprised that the culture came back positive as she has had no fever, her throat is not hurting, and no other symptoms except coughing (mainly at night) and a belly ache. She has been on an antibiotic since Tuesday but it has been 8 nights in a row where she vomits about 20 min after falling asleep. We are going back to the doctor tomorrow but thought I would see if this sounds familiar to anyone else? Thanks, Nicole

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step

About a month ago I heard a loud noise in my right ear and got dizzy. Then two weeks later I had upper respiratory and my right ear looked irritated. I was prescribed z pack. Then two weeks after that I felt I couldnt swallow, my skin on my neck was stretching, pressure in my face, and dizzy. I went back to the doctor and he said both ears were irritated and I probably had sinus infection, even though I had no mucus. He prescribed amoxicillin and advil congestion relief. The pressure in my head at times was uncomfortable to a point where I had to look in the mirror and make sure my face was not disformed. I went back a few days, even though the other symptoms went away and he ordered an MRI. All came back normal except for a maxillary mucus retention cyst in my right sinus. The doctor said it was very small and should not be causing all this. Last night I went to the er because, the pressure in my nose for the past two days makes me feel as if I am not able to breathe. My right ear and head are numb when I feel the pressure in my right nostril. No matter what I take no mucus or flem is coming out and I get panicky when I feel the pressure and numbness. I have to say the pressure is not as intense these past few days as it was last week but still uncomfortable and scary. The ER doctor just ordered claritin but when I called my doctor that said it would dry me up more and he gave me sudafed which I am now taking. also was on lexapro (2,5mg) for a few years and took a year or so to wean off it correctly. I have been off of it for over two months. Could this be related? I have an appointment with an ENT this week.

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal? I also suffer from chronic sinusitis which doesn t help as I get a mucus build up on that side of my throat most days
