Attention to the beta microbe in children

Throat infection is common in children, especially in winter in closed environments. The disease, which occurs more in the age of 5-15 years, can manifest itself with difficulty in swallowing, fever and bad breath. Memorial Antalya Hospital Department of Pediatrics Uz. Dr. Kaan Kadıoğlu, beta microbe gave information about the ways of transmission and treatment.

Pay attention to these symptoms!

The microorganism known as beta microbe is a kind of bacteria that makes inflammation in the throat. Approximately 10-15% of children with sore throat and fever have Group A Beta hemolytic streptococcal inflammation. Inflammation of the throat and tonsils makes it difficult for the child to swallow and feed, the child has bad breath and fever. However; tremor, body pain and loss of appetite. There may also be symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. When you look at the tonsils and throat redness, small tongue swelling and white spots on the tonsils are seen. The lymph nodes in the corner and neck of the lower jawbone may be swollen.

Untreated Beta germ can cause serious discomfort

Occasionally, in bacterial infections called streptococci, microbes secrete toxins that cause a common rash on the skin. In this case, the disease is called “scarlet fever ve and usually lasts from day 2 to day 6 of the throat inflammation. These untreated or inadequately treated forms of inflammation, rarely called febrile rheumatism and can lead to inflammation of the heart and rheumatism; can also cause kidney inflammation, sinusitis, otitis media, pneumonia and skin infections.

Carrier children do not need treatment

Beta germ is found in the throat of about 15% to 20% of the population without causing any complaint and these people are called carriers. Especially people who have pharyngitis are 20% carriers despite treatment. Bacterial inflammation in the throat of the carrier is not causative and there is no risk of the carrier transmitting the disease. The risk of acute joint rheumatism in carriers is also very low. Therefore, the treatment of children with AGBHS carriers is not performed. In some rare cases, the detection and treatment of carriers is necessary.

• If there is an outbreak of beta infection, or if there is a risk of an outbreak, • If a child or a family has rheumatic fever • A child or family has a history of glomerulonephritis • Repeated infectiousness in the family • Infection • Infant or close relatives should be cautious.

How are carriers detected?

Detection of carriers is an important step in disease prevention. Carriers are identified in schools and nurseries with samples taken from the throats of children and staff. Sample; cotton swab and throat and tonsils are applied to this process is not pain or pain. In cases of epidemics or risky cases, samples should be taken from that family. Specimens are reproduced in appropriate media to see if there is a beta microbe in the throat culture. Rapid diagnostic methods, called the SWAB test, are not reliable for the detection of carriers, but they are guiding for rapid response.

Tonsils may need to be removed

Carriers are treated by injecting depot penicillin or by oral medication. Repeated throat culture is recommended after treatment. In cases of recurrent tonsillitis with seven or more tonsil attacks in one year or five or more attacks each year for two years, tonsils may need to be removed if there are insidious inflammations of the tonsils and if insidious inflammation occurs.
