Hi Tony, You need anti-viral meds (zovirax, valtrex, etc) to treat herpes. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic in the penicillin group of drugs. It fights bacteria in your body.
Like I said, I have been all around to different IDs and all they have come up with was Zovirax and Valtrex, which seem to have no effect whatsoever. I started CIPRO as of Monday according to the IDs recommendations, I have mixed feelings about it. Do you think I should finish the course 10 days of 1 pill every 12 hours or it would not make sense? The only reason I started since it is effective klebsiella pneumonia according to bacterial resistance chart I was given.
all showed nothing). I took Valtrex and it seemed to help right away. I haven't had eye pain, numbness or a headache but my ear is still hurting! Hopefully this may lead some of you to another direction for investigation. Also, if you have any other thoughts for me...let me know! Yes, it's miserable! I am thinking maybe I have a few things going on at once. Thanks!
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.
I go an emergency appointment at the gynecologist, who said it was probably herpes, took cultures, blood tests for EVERYTHING at my request, and sent me home with Valtrex. Over the next day, the swelling got worse and the scabby-sores worsened and got bigger. The second day, the swelling had gone down, but the pain was so bad and I knew it would be getting worse, that my husband called the on-call OB/GYN who had me come in to meet her at the ER, where she was.
prescribed amoxicillin and was told to see a physician In 2 days. Went to physician and he gave a 500 shot of rocephin and said to keep taking the amoxicillin on Oct 3. By Oct 8 seemed a lot better. White Tonsils were gone but still swollen and I was eating solid foods again Oct 10 back to normal except Tonsils are somewhat still enlarged. Now my girl friend went to have a pap done on Sept 27. It was abnormal and diagnosed with Bv and prescribed metronidazole.
The Oxycontin, Gabitril, Zanaflex are for Lyme Disease pain and muscle spasms that are so unbearable I crawl up in a fetal position. Valtrex and Amoxicillin are for viral/bacterial infections. Plavix is for Antiphospholipid Syndrome. It thins the blood out. My blood was so thick that I would pass out due to not getting enough to my brain. Thick blood can cause thrombotic events such as strokes, lung embolism, etc.
i have been suffering from debilatating allergies/sinus probs, fatigue, and dizziness for about a year now. i do have allergies to mold, dust, milk products, and corn products. my allergy doc says my symptoms are all from allergies, but i have been trying everything 2 avoid the allergens, been getting allergy shots, tried numerous allergy medications, with no help from anything! does anyone else experience this type of thing? i seriously feel like i am getting so depressed.
The study I read also mentioned one case of a person who was needle poked with HSV-4, and took Valtrex, and never developed it at all due to the PEP action. Who knows...better than nothing...
i recently found out that im 2 weeks pregnant and iwas on antibiotics(doxyclyn and metrronidazole) for bacterial infection before i took the test ,i want to know if this has affected the baby or me.
I was given Valtrex (b/c of a sore on my penis -- negative for HSV), amoxicilin (twice), doxycycline, and another gigantic red pill they give you so you don't have to take them over a long period of time. This was all within a 5 moth period, about 5 years ago. Since then... I had debilitating digestive pains. a. stabbing, obstructive pain b. burning stomach c. fatigue d. dizziness and brain fog e. constipation / loose stools alternating -- mainly constipation.
So eventually, I went to the doctor who gave me pills named Starclav 500 (which i found out was Amoxicillin and clavunic acid). I took the pills for three days, which made the symptoms go away. After that I seemed to be alright and was back home by mid Jan. Mid Feb 2010, I have had some strange discomfort below jaw (what seemed like a swollen lymph node), went to check neck lymph nodes no problem. Went ENT doctor told him about Thailand, and swollen gland on the right side.
Hi there, I visited a sexual health clinic the other day due to an outbreak of sores in my genital area. The doctor suspects herpes and has prescribed me Valtrex as well as run a test of the sores themselves (I am awaiting the results). My concern is that this outbreak is the 5th in a serious of various infections I have had over the past few weeks, scaling various areas of my body and produced by fungal, viral and bacterial infections.
I vomited, went to the ER, got a CT scan to rule out brain issues, and was put on amoxicillin antibiotic because they felt sinusitis (sinus infection) brought on the vertigo (though I never had problems with a stuffy nose, runny nose, or congestion). The docs also said it could have been brought on by a common virus. I looked up "herpes vertigo" and there is substantial reporting on a link between herpes simplex and vertigo. Anyway, I started the antibiotics that night.
its been a week now and then are so wet and now have a little white in them. i went to get tested and the lady said possibile herpes. i stated meds for it but nothing is scabing over still wet. i am still itching bad and the sores hurt so bad when i go pee.

I have read and read and read over the last several weeks on the internet and in forums about HIV, Symptoms, etc. Frankly I have spent untold hours every day through the holidays researching the issue. Once I think I've convinced myself I'm ok another "symptom" pops up and I go back to researching. I want to add some more information to my previous post that may be helpful. I'm a 40 year old male.
Culture was neg. for hsv 1 and 2. I did get a copy of the report. I was prescribed Amoxicillin which it did not clear the bumps. However, the bumps will come and go in the same area. 10/13/13 I visited a Dermatologist and diagnosed with cysts. Vaginal culture sent to lab- result was an over growth of Klebsiella.
I went a week before I had the valtrex generic filled and I'm on day 3 of taking it. Not much has changed. The testicular pain was a good bit better during most of my day today but is back here tonight. The Ibprofen is helping but the pain sucks. It's not unbearable and I've been able to function with it. Does this sound at all like a mild break out of hsv that I contracted via the unprotected oral? It feels like symptoms of a UTI, epidimitis, or even prostatisis.
Most derms are very familiar with herpes lesions and differentiating between them and other skin conditions, and you saw a derm 3 different times! I'd let it go. You should seriously consider avoiding unprotected sex in the future. I'm not sure if condoms would have dispelled your anxiety, though. That's for you to decide. A woman 20 years younger than you is no more or less likely to have STDs than you, me, or anybody else. You appear to have "genitally focused anxiety.
I have been using Saline Nasal Spray every day and went back on the Valtrex two days ago. I had the smell really bad two days ago, then some yesterday, but not as much. I haven't had the smell yet as of today, so maybe it (the Valtrex)is helping. Read my last post. I know it is long, but maybe it will make sense to someone. So far so good today.
Other information and symptoms that someone might recognize... 1. I was put on two antibiotics, amoxicillin and clindamycin, in months prior to this (February and the end of April) for other health issues. I had to treat myself for a yeast infection following the amoxicillin treatment. 2. I am on birth control pills. I am currently 27 and have been using them since I was about 17. 3. I have always struggled with vaginal dryness. Using tampons was sometimes uncomfortable. 4.
1/2/08 Stopped Amoxicillin and flagyl and started IV Rocephin due to hand and leg issue all per Lyme Literate doctor . Had IV Rocephin treatment 1/2/08,1/3/08, 1/8/08, 1/9/08, 1/10/08 and paralyses started going away. Still have balance, coordination and gait difficulty along with double vision. I am still doing IV rocephin three times a week. Most recently had double vision get worst to the point prizm did not work, seems to fluctuate now along with light sensitivity.
Then in January (latter part of the month) we did anal sex (my first time) and he went from anal back to vaginal (found out that was a big no no) and used tons of lube and baby oil. I got symptoms of itchy anus and vagina, burning, discharge (white and clear), painful urination, a sore (which hurt) on my vaginal wall etc. Used Peroxide, hydrocortisone cream, and A&D ointment, but the syptoms were just getting worse.
I am planning on going in to get blood test for syphilis and here is the question. I just got off amoxicillin and valtrex a week ago. Should I wait for 3 weeks to get tested or can I get tested next week? Just FYI..tongue still has discomfort and white film..that I can't figure out!! Thanks again Doc.
I have had a second outbreak this past week, 10 years later, after having bronchitis again and being prescribed amoxicillin. By the way, I have been retested through cultures and blood tests for all STD's and all herpes. Still, nothing. I'm starting to find some information about rare sores and diseases people have, but none have matched what I have. The scabs have cleared up (fallen off) and now they are 'healthier looking' almost craters.
I was prescribed a 7 day course of amoxicillin. In December, 2009, I again developed a large blister and ulcer inflammation in the same area of my penis head. This time, I remember taking a CIPRO pill for prostatitis immediately before the lesion appeared. I had a feeling of malaise and aching in the penis tip. I went to the primary care physician who did more STD tests with a cotton swab. They also did a Herpes blood test.

He told us that he was pretty sure it was Herpes, and prescribed Valtrex for me. I was flabbergasted and scared. How could I have herpes? I had never been sexually active at all! All the tests came out NEGATIVE. (I still am not sexually active) I went to the gynecologist for an appointment asap, which was a week later (the sores were healing by then). She had just had a similar case and it turned out to be mono. I was given a blood test. Turns out, there were traces of mono in my blood.
Has anyone had this before and stopped the progression through antibiotics or other means? It is all over my body and getting worse. I'm in a panic as no one in the U.S. seems to know what to do. I've read so much of the same information. I just want to know if it can truly be stopped and if dermatological procedures can help reduce the look of the atrophy and sunken spots. Without trying to sound rude, I am not looking for what it is how how it manifests. That I have l learned.
