so my daughter is two yrs old. last night she came down with a fever, so i take her to doctors and they look at her throat and said it looked bad, and pus in there, so they give her strep throat test and it comes negative. so i come home and look at ther throat and it just freaked me out. she has red bumps with kind of white on it and it looks as if its swollen, like its hard for her to swollow. so the doctor says it could be a virus. not even specifying as to what virus. and it should clear in a two days no worries. WTF. how could that not be alarming to any doctor???and he says there was nothing else they could do.>>>> now i dont know what the hell it is ..Does anyone have any idea on what it could or might be???

I know that every time I have strep, the rapid strep test comes back negative, but the 24 hour one is positive. Maybe it's the same case for her?
Or she could have tonsillitis?

That sounds like strep no doubt. Get a second opinion. Or have the doctor retest because sometimes it comes out negative when it should be positive

:!: That too.



Did they say they were going to do the 24 hour test? That's happened to me a few times as well.

I am going to another doctor to get second opinion, i cant just settle for the answer that the doctor gave me, she doesnt want to eat anything or drink and she wont take any tylenol for fever,
i bought the suppositories to put in butt so that i can help with the fever somewhat

As soon as you said the doctor said it's a virus and he can't do anything for her, I thought of it. Though, I agree with you, he could have provided a little insight on it. But it's a virus so antibiotics won't work. Just treat the symptoms. Motrin for the fever/aches, my ped told me to mix equal parts of Maalox and Benadryl and rub it on the blisters using a Q-tip, it acts as a numbing agent.

It's a good possibility. It's very contagious. My ped said it's usually transmitted by the child putting their mouth on something, like a restaurant table, shopping cart handle.
