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
