Anyone ever treated toxoplasmosis in a 12 year old?

Haven't taken her to the dr. because everything online suggests that it not be treated unless you are pregnant. 

Thanks

Having grown up with cats that were indoor/outdoor with a cat box in the house & since my mom & I both eat raw hamburger (bad habit, I know) I'd say that it's safe to say that my sister, brother & I all were probably exposed to toxoplasmosis as kids & it never caused us any problems.

Is she showing symptoms? IMO, if you have reason to believe that she has it I would give her immune boosters & anti-parasitics. HTH Blessings ~herbalmom
