How common are strep vaginal/rectal infections among four year olds? How is this transmitted?
    
Group A streptococcus is not an uncommon infection of the vaginal and rectal areas. The child almost always gets the infection through autoinnoculation - that is - they infect themselves when their hands become contaminated with the bacteria. The infection originates either in the throat or on the skin. During the warmer months of the year, the bacteria can be found in 20-25% of healthy, asymptomatic 5-15 year olds.
