Thanks Ashley. I have worked Emergency Medicine and know exactly what giving advice is. There are certain terms of service that have to be followed and many come here seeking advice because the are "just curious" I would like you to notice I gave her several links to look up strep herself and whether or not it causes a foul odor to the breath so she may search for it herself.
It may be splitting hairs, but I just gave her ways for her to look it up for herself. If she is a student then she should google her own reports but I realize that sometimes students don't know what to google for....Many do come here and say they are in nurses (or aides or techs or transporters) and we have many patients that are on this site as well. So many do come here just because they know there are nurses they can ask.
In telling her "Yes it can but so can something else see your MD" is not medical advice and yet give her the means to search it for herself was only meant to be helpful which I do all the time. "I can't give you advice but if you look here"wink wink......I can get them the information they are seeking but may not know how to find.
I'm sorry if you felt I was offending the OP as I was just trying to supply her with the info she was seeking to help herself. I have learned over the years to never assume anything when dealing with the general public and I try very hard not to place my foot in mouth for any extended period of time. Thank you for your apology as it did seem a little harsh and rude.....all is forgiven no big deal....
