after how many days of antibiotics are you no longer contagious?

Hi All,

We gave birth of two one month ago and got a new night nanny suggested by a friend.
She said was sick with throat infection and doctor gave antibiotics and she is already taking it for 5 days. She said she is 100% risk free for the babies. We got stressed about that.
After how many days of antibiotics are you no longer contagious? And if is/was a flu/cold?
We are afraid for the babies.
Thank you
Mark

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
But its difficult to exactly predict when a person becomes non contagious. If her symptoms have resolved, she is unlikely to be contagious. Also, if she has completed her antibiotic course prescribed, she is less likely to be contagious.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
