Amoxicillin and pink eye

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin and pink eye


I was prescribed amoxicillin and I have asked my dr. and they said it was totally safe. I am 18 weeks pregnant and I was prescribed amoxicillin for a sinus infection. It is safe!!!!
My 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with pink eye and an ear infection yesterday. Instead of giving her the eye drops they gave her Amoxicillin. Now today she has 2 small yellow pockets on her eyeball is that normal? and how long will she be contagious after she has been on antibiotics?
Just today, I again woke up with a pink eye, and some of the cold symptoms are slowly returning. As before, the eye is red, feels dry, but only very slightly itchy, and with just a tad of discharge. All four times now it has been my left eye, never any problems with my right eye. I have never had pinkeye before this year. I have two questions about this: First, why does it keep recurring and is it something to worry about?
so she was away for some time... and pink eye went around in the baby room as well...5 kids out of the 9 ended up getting it and last week had 2 in the preschool room with it...
We just got back from the pediatician today (Monday) and he said he was most likely due to the amoxicillin. He took him off all his medication and said to just keep an eye on his fever and give him benadyrl as needed for itching. I honestly hope that the reaction is indeed from the amoxicillin. The doctor did say that he could take a while for an allergic reaction to show up. All I know is I have never been so scared in my life.
I felt and looked fully recovered as my eyes would not be swollen in the mornings and my vision was excelent once again. I had not been exposed to pink eye and the problem seemed to be viral. Two months later the symptoms have returned. Severe pain when I look left or right, left side of head aches, and the area all around my eye is swollen. No unusual discharge or tearing though. By the end of the day and 3-5 200mg ibuprofin later the swelling goes away a little.
I'd like to support what Savas is saying about amoxicillin - it is the same thing that pediatricians use for small children. (Not-so-affectionately called 'the pink stuff'.) The only difference between amoxicillin tablets and the liquid form is that the liquid is a suspension of the ground-up tablet in liquid or syrup. (Something you can easily do yourself with the liquid in wet food or tuna cans.
It would gum up really easily at night and be red and sticky in the morning like pink eye. I noticed a bump, and put warm compresses on it and put pressure on it to push the stuff out and it went away. But the other symptoms did not go away. Eventually in March I found a much bigger lump on the inside of the other end of the lid. I saw an ophthalmologist and he cut it open. He said it was particularly nasty to pop. I was put on bacitracin ointment and it healed up.
Antibiotics like penicillin and amoxicillin are ok During pregnancy.
a week later I got sick(4wks after). white spots on my tonsils,pink eye, mild fever off and on, cough, swollen glands and lymph nodes in my neck, and one behind my ear and diarrah. also I started having pain in testies and after getting off. I had a negitive strep and mono spot test, but too ammox just in case. it went away in about 3 days,but have had a sore throat for 3 months and swollen tonsils and glands and SOB or at least pressure in chest area that comes and goes.
So Chloes vagina isn't red anymore, but she was still super cranky yesterday so I took her back to the dr, she said she doesn't see evidence of a bladder infection, and Chloe has an ear inffection, she's on amoxicillin for ten days. Today I'm changing chloes diaper and open her vaginal area to put on her premarin, and inside the labia minora, like inside the pee hole, is purple, light purple, and it almost looks puffier.
I'm 28 weeks and juat getting over a viral infection, sinus infection, laryngitis and pink eye, I was givin amoxicillin and was able to take tylonol, unfortunately that all...
I've seen 2 doctors and 1 specialist, none have really told me anything and all tests always come back negative (I was tested for herpes as well.) Even the yeast cultures come back negative. I've been going to acupuncture for the last 2 months and the symptoms are decreasing, but at a very slow rate. I have taken Monistat, flagyl, cortizone (steroid) pills and cream and nothing has worked.
Having been in almost perfect health until then, I stared getting severe allergy symptoms including eye allergies,fatigue, dry cough and wheeze .,esp during spring.Time coincided with my oral surgery.Penicillin, bruofen, and Allegra took a toll on my stomach this time, I believe.Ended up having dyspeptic attacks.My physician disagree that the medicines caused it, and swears it is the stress.She wanted me on antidepressants.
you need them now for her. Go to the 'human doctor' and get some Amoxicillin which is safe for cats. It's pink and comes in liquid form and very easy give. Every doctor, including vets, carry this type of antibiotic on hand 24/7. But if you cant find any, I can send you a supply. Only problem with that is, it will take awhile to ship it to you I'm sure but it can be done.
I ask because I still have it through an acne Rx and I have not touched it for a month because of the itching side effect but it has since subsided after taking azithro.. for a couple weeks. I just found out that Conjunctivitis/pink eye is linked to Lyme and that Glucosamine is a huge no-no to Lyme patients. I took it twice in 2010 and 2011 the same time my pink eye recurred and the wasting began. It has immunosuppressive effects.
We gave her benadryl Friday in the afternoon and at night and she just woke up again and is still covered in the rash. She also said her lip hurt last night and I noticed it is still a bit swollen. She also still has white spots on the back of her throat. A friend of mine said her daughter had strep and it turned to mono and the amoxicillin didn't "agree" with the mono.... Thanks for your help!
Until last night, when I masturbated before going to bed, then went to the bathroom and passed deepish pink urine and a biggish clot again. I phoned the hospital this morning to check my referral had been passed on, and to find out how long I should be waiting to hear from them. It could be up to 13 weeks before I get an appointment.
how are you feeling. How did DH take the news and the family. Is everyone jumping up and down in glory.... I bet! Still so happy for you and still hoping "good things come in 3's" like you said. Audrey, hope you find this. How are you feeling? Is the wait starting to really bug you yet? I know how antsy I got both times towards the end. Almost test time girlie. Deb- My follies are coming along. You're to cute.
We started taking that his rash did not go. His fever and pink eye was gone in 2 days. Then doctor prescribed 'fucidin' creme for rash and we applied it and rash is also gone. But he still had strawberry tongue and tonsils. So I took him to pediatrician. He asked for blood test with ASOT, Sed rate, plates count, something for inflammation in blood test. And he asked for ECG as well. Same time he asked us to stop all the medications.
Most of the original pink spots are still visible and I don't think any have disappeared but I realize the skin on the breast area is very delicate and it might take time. This is not an overall rash of pink spots, just here and there and willy nilly over a carpet of white bumps. Condition currently has spread up to nipples recently (not on nipples yet) and outward but not toward midline. And my breasts are very pink with pink veins sort of poping out all over. Inflammation?
I went back 2 days later, and was diagnosed with pink eye, possible ruptured ear drum, ear infection and sinus infection. Gave me drops for the pink eye, and kept me on the amoxicillin. They told me if my ear didn't clear up in a couple of days to see an ENT. 2 days after that, I went to the ENT, who confirmed the previous diag. saying that the strep probably irritated everything, and prescribed antibiotic ear drops for my ear.
I had recurrent ear aches during this time. I even developed pink eye. Additionally, I have had muscle twitches and sometimes tingling in my arms or legs. The whole time I've had a feeling of being hot that won't go away. As many of you can imagine, I was freaking out about ARS. I thought it was only a matter of time before I was diagnosed with HIV. Every day I thought about how I would tell my family and how my life was over.
The whole, do you have cats question never came up though, so I never thought about it...but we definitely fought with the pink eye around the farm last summer--and in July-BOOM I get hit. Totally glad Bart was in the mix now that I read up. What a wild ride this is.
Now I have like you throat/nose cold, I could not even talk for 3 days my voice was so bad. Oh and on top of that I had pink eye for a week!!! I know they recommend Tylenol since it's a class A over advil - class b, but Tylenol does not do anything for the throat, only headaches. A lot of people say NO on Advil, but if you take a look, it's ok after 12 weeks, and before 32 weeks. If like me Tylenol isn't helping, I think Advil is good as long as you don't take them frequently.
Pain terrible but no sores on penis-Penis hole red - no lesions. Also, no discharge from penis. 3 dys later pink eye. Worrying = terrible ulcer. 4 wks later blood work(to check for Hep A&B, liver probs)and H-pylori test. H-pylori positive- 12/06-I develop a circular red spot on chest that looks like hickey no raising to it. Red spot will fade but then it will be bright red again. 6/07-I get the red spot after shaving near it. I go see doc to have her look at it.Diagnoses it as a fungus.
end of July I scraped my penis on something and later the tip of my penis began to feel sensitive and was raw and red. maybe unrelated. put hydrocortisone cream on it and it went away. now, last week after masturbating two days in a row, the spot was back - with a small red spot on the head where it meets the shaft, but I thought friction as it went away after a day. The tender meatus is still present, but gets better then worse and then goes away altogether.
Sorry you feel so awful. I don't remember ever having an ear infection, but I'm sure it can't be fun! (My son, when he was little, once kept telling me he had a bee in his ear. I was puzzled until I realized that was HIS theory about why his ear hurt, but of course it was an ear infection!) Hope you feel better soon. That "pink medicine" can work wonders. (Is amoxicillin still pink?) Thanks for posting your update, and I hope the ENT can help with your recurring ear infections.
There is a possibility that the infection could go into your ear, which happened to me once, but I found a way to avoid it. You could also accidentally rub infected snot into your eye and get an eye infection, if you are careless. The physiology of your head may be different from my head and you could experience a problem that I would not have, so it’s another risk you must assume. This technique will work for almost any infection of the nose, if you‘re willing to take the risk.
