Strep B is SO common. As many as 4 women out of 10 have this and it's in their vagina and rectum. Every pregnant woman gets tested for it before giving birth it is so common. The vast majority of the time, it is harmless and causes no issues. But I suppose it can. Here is from an article: "Nevertheless, GBS has been observed to provoke cytokine release in the vaginal tissue, genital inflammation as well as decrease of the lactobacillary microflora; it is therefore a potential cause of vulvovaginal burning, discharge (usually clear/white-coloured), and fiery red labia, even with fissures ". https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3726989/ Antibiotics can treat it but then you need to watch your yeast overgrowth.
My dr just put me on Amoxicillin 500/3X day for 7 days. After 10months, multiple drs with no diagnosis/no relief. I’m believing this will be my solution!
