Reply to "Strep throat"

C. diff is a spore-forming bacterial species, and spores can be extremely durable, so someone who has had C. diff in the past could potentially have some spores waiting for a favorable environment for “reactivation.” Those folks have good reasons to be extra cautious, preferring antibiotics that don’t increase the risk, and perhaps taking Florastor. I’m less clear that such precautions are helpful for someone who has never had C. diff.
