Patient :I have a very sensitive gi system and was diagnosed with strep throat. i feel fine, i had a sore throat one day. no temperature just stuffy nose and dry throat. they prescribed me penicillin and i dont want to take it due to the diarrhea. If a medicine says you will possibly get diarrhea, i will. and it says for months as well. I guess my question is if I dont treat it, other than being contagious for weeks, is there anything else I can do? im always careful when it comes to germs.
