      Re: Budget101.com : Earache

      I prefer natural as well but be very careful with using natural products to
      get rid of bacterial infections. Untreated strep throat can result in
      scarlet fever and that can be deadly…especially in small children. Our
      pediatrician once told us that a bacterial infection can fake you out…you
      think it’s all gone but the bacteria is still floating around which is why
      they say to take the antibiotics for 10 days to make sure you have
      completely wiped out the bacteria.

      If your child develops a rash 3-5 days
      after the strep throat is all gone that is the beginning stages of scarlet
      fever. At that point you have to see a doctor. I only know this because my
      2nd son used to get strep throat all the time but would have not one single
      symptom until the rash broke out and then we would have to run him to the
      doctor for the antibiotics and at that point it usually took 2 doses instead
      of just one.

      For whatever reason, he just never showed the signs and
      symptoms…even now at age 20 he’s still the same way…won’t show the signs
      or symptoms until he is VERY ill.
      I say natural is definitely preferable for almost everything…I would just
      be a bit cautious with strep throat.
