Flu/pneumonia/strep?
My 10 year old had the flu (swine or seasonal?  although he had the seasonal vaccine in October) which developed into pneumonia.  He's been on an antibiotic for a week, and woke up with a low fever and sore throat during the night.  Can you get strep while on an antibiotic?  Does treatment change?  Anything I should be overlyconcerned about?

I'd check back with the doctor. However, since he has the flu, and it is viral, it is very possible that that is what is affecting his throat. The antibiotic would not help a viral flu.
