My 10 year old had her tonsils & adenoids removed 5 years ago & has been has positive strep tests for the past 2 months. I have changed all toothbrushes weekly, & cleaned everything in the house yet it still continues. She is on her 5th antibiotic plus 2 antibiotic injections and still suffering. Saw an ENT & he said if this round of Cefdinir didn't work, she would need surgery again. Feeling frustrated.
