    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hello ladies! I have a question and I have been waiting for hours to hear back from my ped office...If an adult has strep and is around my 1.5 year old, can my son get it? I heard that kids under 2 can not catch it due to the glands not being fully formed, but I could be misinformed. Also, about how long before he could show signs of having it if he did catch it? Thanks for your help.
