This is VERY embarrasing to ask, but I have heard that you can carry strep infections on the skin. Do any of you know if you can carry it on the penis? The reason I am asking is the past 2 times I have given my husband oral sex I have gotten strep throat the very next day. I have had strep throat now 5 times since Feb. I found out that my son was a carrier and he was treated. This is driving me crazy. I don't want to have my tonsils out. My ENT told me that even if I have them removed that it is still possible to get strep. Any help out there? Please no wise cracks. :o

  • Have you definitely been diagnosed with Strep by a culture sent to a lab? Or were you just diagnosed visually and by your symptoms? This is important as there are many causes of sore throat that aren't strep...allergies and candida being a few. Sometime a doc will get lazy and not send out the culture...swab tests aren't as accurate. DOM

  • Besides running tests and get that checked with a Doc- I can recommend you looking into Oil of Oregano caplets. The oil knocks strep, parasites,fungus, virus, and bacteria- good stuff. Very Safe.Frui.

  • Everytime I was cultured positive for strep. The thing is I react so badly to it. My temp gets up to 104 most of the time.
