Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
He has gone through blood culture test and it shows streptococcal infection. With culture there will be drug sensitivity report also. He should take antibiotics according to drug sensitivity test. He should be given Intravenous treatment. Continue that intravenous treatment.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer.
Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.

I am 52 and had a full hysterectomy 2years ago but had a vaginal swab taken as intercourse was so painful, this showed I had streptococous infection, but I believe my pain is due to not havi g HRT, my gp prescribed penicillin V but I am worried as after 2 doses my stomach is very sore and causing me discomfort, can i safely ignore the streptococous as I really have no problems now other than vaginal dryness for which i have been prescribed vaginal Hrt?

My boyfriend was diagnosed with what his doctor called a rare form of strep found in the throat, vagina, and GI tract. He works from home and I am the only person he s been in contact with recently. I am prone to strep but have not been sick in quite some time. He recently preformed oral sex on me is it possible he contracted it that way. If so is there a treatment to prevent this happening again with out curbing our activities? Or is this going to be something I am going to have to worry about all the time. I ve never had this issue befor.
