My daughter is 3 and presented with a fever for 3 days, than a sore throat, cough with congestion and a very raspy voice. Her Dr. said it was viral but I insisted on a throat culture suspecting it might be strep. It was negative for strep but came back days later positive for E. Coli. The doctors and nurses thought it was an unusual case and the doctors consulted with each other to prescribe the right antibiotic. They gave her Amoxicillin and Clavulanate. They were as confused as I was as to how or why it harbored in her throat. She has no stomach or intestinal symptoms. Now, a week after she got sick I have a sore throat. They suggested that I also get a throat culture. All my searches come up with E Coli infections in the digestive tract. I can't find anything about it as a throat infection. I hope the medicine works and I intend to get another culture after the 10 days is up.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
