Hi Shadra,
Welcome to HCM.
ASO is Antistreptolysin O which is increased in the body when patient is infected by bacteria called Streptococci. These bacteria cause skin infections, cellulitis, rheumatic fever and joint pain. Your ASO titre has not decreased indicating that you are not responding sufficiently to the treatment given.Get in touch with your doctor for change of therapy.
