Trials and Tribulations: Group B Strep Infection Drama during Pregnancy

Last Monday on 11 Mar 2013, I received a call from my Gynae's clinic that I am tested positive for my Group B Strep test and i should go down to the clinic to collect some antibiotics for treatment.

On Tuesday, I went down to the clinic to collect the medication. However, I noticed that the antibiotics prescribed to me is the very one that was prescribed to me earlier in January for my sore throat! The problem is, a few hours after i took the antibiotics, my mouth swell and broke out in many ulcers. I am allergic to this antibiotics and i informed my Gynae to add into the list of my allergies. So the nurse told me to wait while they consulted the doctor. After a while i was called into the consultation room and my Gynae told me that he can't give me any antibiotics because i have allergies to Penicillin, Amoxicillin and Erythromycin. He then only add on to say too bad, cos he cannot give me anything from theses families of drugs. So we since can't treat the mom then we can only treat the baby when he is born. That's it!
