Hi i got a phone call Friday evening telling me my daughter has fusobacterium necrophorum found on a throat swab taken last week.
I was called down to the surgery straight away to pick up a prescription for some anti biotics (metronidazole suspension 200mg) i was hoping to speak with the doctor but she had an emergency and couldnt see me so im waiting to see her tomorrow.
im really worried about this and dont even know what it is or what could happen with it.
My daughter is a type 1 diabetic which of course makes me worried more.

Can anyone please please give me some advice please on what this is etc?

Thank you

  • never heard of it; I would pick the brain of her doctor. Looks like you're lucky they diagnosed it and got her on meds. Hope she feels better by Christmas!!!
