    • Joan Anderson says:

      When I was younger I used to get Strep Throat just about every year. My homeopathic practitioner gave me some Streptococcus and I have never since had Strep Throat even once. That was over 25 years ago! Could not buy it over the counter; did need a homeopathic practitioner to get it and give it to me.

  2. Beth Day says:

    My grandson was diagnosed with strep throat this morning, and now his brother has it. His throat is inflamed, they have fevers of 102, they have both vomited. The one who first got it is 2 1/2 years old and feels well enough tonight to run around and laugh. The 5 year old still doesn’t feel well. They have been prescribed antibiotics but have not gotten them yet. What homeopathic remedies would you recommend? Thank you.

  6. Coleen Steindel says:

    My son (age 12) has had an itchy anus for almost 3 weeks. I took him to the doctor 4 days ago, and he said it was just a skin irritation and gave him hydrocortisone cream. However, yesterday I noticed it was getting red around the anus, which makes me think he may have perianal strep (something he had 5 years ago). I am kicking myself for not insisting on a strep test (most doctors don’t know about this condition). I am familiar with homeopathy and have used it successfully for a number of things. But I can’t seem to find any information on a remedy for this. Any suggestions?

  7. Shaswati Deb says:

    Hi Dr. Sharma,
    I am 41 years old. I have had sore throat or maybe it’s strep throat for the past four days, but no fever. There is difficulty swallowing food and irritation. Cough is there sometimes but not often. I have been trying all the possible home remedies such as warm drinks, salt water gargling and taking steam vapour.
    It’s still there. What is the best homeopathic medicine to cure this ? Heard they have no side effects. And will there be any food restrictions whilst on medication? And what will be the dosage ?
    *initially it was painful, now there’s irritation in the throat.
    Many thanks,

  8. Hi Dr. Sharma,

    I frequently suffer from Sore Throat, about 4 times a year and I’ve been taking antibiotics for it every time. This time, I’ve decided to go with Homeopathy medicines. It’s been 3 days and my fever is not completely healed. I am worried if this would lead to rheumatic fever and heart valve damage if I do not take anti biotics and rely solely on homeopathy for cure.

    Hello, my 7 and a half year old son may have “pandas” and I am told that the strep infection may be the cause of this autoimmune disease. an you recommend a homeopathic remedy?

  10. Julie Melbourne says:

    Hi Dr Sharma,
    Thank you for this very interesting article. I am a UK homeopath, currently helping a 62 year old woman with Chronic Plaque Psoriasis on the soles of (both) feet – nowhere else on the body. I’ve had some success with Phosphorous, Sepia and Sulphur over the past 2 years, but these remedies seem to bring only symptomatic relief and the condition is most definitely triggered by (emotional) stress.
    The patient told me that she’d suffered an episode of Strep throat in the late 1990s (the worst case her doctor had ever seen, apparently). I’ve been reading medical studies that point to a link between the Streptococcus bacteria and the subsequent development of psoriasis (amongst other conditions) and am considering trying a “Never been well since” approach to her psoriasis, using the homeopathic remedy Streptococcinum. I wondered whether you had any experience of this and could offer any advice, please?

  11. Cindy litchke says:

    Hello, my six year old grandson developed little blisters in his anus area, dr diagnosed strep? He called it perinatal and put him on antibiotics. Previous he had 2 rounds of antibiotics for strep throat. He has never quit passing blood in his stools and now his penis is seeping? I just started Streptococcinum ointment yesterday. I am concerned though, if is not strep of his anus, will Streptococcinum cause any problems?

  12. Renée Austin says:

    These are fantastic remedies thank you!
    Are any of these safe for children?

  13. Hi, my son who’s 7 has been diagnosed with a strep infection.
    He was running 101-103F fever for 2 days and complaining of a mild sore throat pain.
    He was fever and pain free on day 3-4 but still congested.
    The doctor suggests antibiotic, and I’d like to know if I should give it to him.
    Are there any alternatives I can thread his symptoms and rid of the infection?
    Thank you in advance!!!
