Hello, I have currently been taking flucloxacillin for the past 3days for an infection (boil) inside my nose. But over the past 2 days I have suffered from a very sore throat and this morning I think I can see a white lump on one of my tonsils. I have suffered from tonsillitis before and was taking amoxicillin but was wondering if flucloxacillin can clear up any infection if any on my tonsils.
He has seen two rn's, and has been told that he has tonsillitis. However, he has been on amoxicillin, zithromax, rocefrin (3 shots now), omnicef, and a shot of steroids. He is still not better. It hurts to talk and swallow both in his ears and throat (mostly in his right ear). Does anyone have any idea what's going on or what he should do to get some relief? He did go to an ear/nose/throat dr. on Thursday, but the rn said it was bad tonsillitis.
the doctor tested her for strep (she did not test for STDs) - it came back negative, so the doctor thought she had tonsillitis, and gave her amoxicillin. After a round of that, she wasn't better, so the doctor gave her doxycycline. She just finished it, and she is feeling much better, but she still has a small white spot on her tonsils. I just learned of my of previous partner getting gonorrhea - we only had oral sex once. I also have no symptoms.
I took amoxicillin (antibiotics) for tonsillitis for 5 days this week and I am going to take a blood test on Monday in which I would like to get an HIV test (it's just past 8 weeks post-possible exposure). Will the antibiotics affect the test?

I had a sore throat in April, and the doctor gave me amoxicillin believing i had strept throat, without swabbing. The antibiotics didn't work until day 7 out of 10, and a few days after i finished the antibitocs it came back. A different doctor prescribed me cefaclor which worked after using it for 1 day. When I finished the prescription, a day after i had a sore throat. The doctor prescribed me cefaclor again, and once again when I finished the prescription, the sore throat came right back.
About 10 days later I came down with severe chills, a dry cough, then a temperature which quickly skyrocketed. I felt dizzy and weak for the next several days. Over the next few weeks I had several night sweats. I had a cough and about two weeks later I developed very bad pharyngitis. I had white spots in my throat and this progressed to very painful tonsillitis. I became nauseous and vomited the next day. I had sharp stomach pains.
I was treated with very strong IV acyclovir (anti viral) and two sets of antibiotics for a secondary infection in my brain I was on strong IV metronidazole and amoxicillin aswell as morphine for pain relief on top of codeine, ibuprofen and paracetamol with cyclizine for anti emetic treatment. My blood pressure was extrmely low as my fluid intake was poor so I was on IV fluids and my pulse dropped as low as 35 one evening.
So all my life I've suffered from tonsillitis i was supposed to get them removed when I found out I was pregnant(last year of medical card). I am 35w and been having a throat infection for about 3 weeks. In addition to this I have ear pain an today I woke up with a pink eye, since I can't take any medicine I believe the infection is spreading. What should I do? I called my oB but they didn't pick up my call. I'm in so much pain.
So...my belly button piercing for infected. Which was unexpected as I've been very careful about taking care of it. But I had been ding salt water soaks, using some hydrogen peroxide to drain it (many websites suggested that), and using a warm compress. Then I got what I thought was the flu-terribly sore throat, weakness, fatigue, fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes. Etc etc. They thought it was tonsillitis so I started taking amoxicillin. Then today I had swelling in some certain areas.
Tonsillectomy is advised if there is recurrent streptococcal tonsillitis, recurrent peritonsillar abscess and chronic tonsillitis. Recurrent tonsillitis is an indication for tonsillectomy, as the tonsils may harbor the infection which keeps flaring up, or they may develop new infections. As you are getting repeated episodes not responding to therapy, you may benefit from tonsillectomy. The procedure is actually easier to do for an adult as the diameter of the oral cavity is larger.
However, as of yesterday I began taking amoxycillin antibiotics for tonsillitis. I know antibiotics reduce the protection effects of the pill but will it also reduce the controlled skipping effects? That is, will I end up getting my period in a few days as it would have come normally. If so, is there any way to stop it?
I am 17 years old and since the being of october, I have had tonsilitis 4 times. Nothing is helping. I was on amoxicillin 500mg for 5 days, until I stared getting really sick off of it. Now whenever i take pictures of my tonsils, I notice clear, greenish bubbles all over my tonsils and white stuff that never really went away. Would should I do? I was on penicillin too.
Therefore I can assure you that your sore throat cannot be related with HIV. Streptococcal tonsillitis does not always respond to amoxicillin, but as you mention, it can also be glandular fever or infectious mononucleosis. You need to consult with your doctor; you might need a throat swab as well as a blood test.
hi all, ive been on penicillin for tonsillitis for afew days just finished course now i have a bad urine infection now docs have prescribed amoxicillin, im so against taking tablets for my babys health but im in agony, what should i do??
I have for the past two years had severe tonsil infections. I have been on constant antibiotic treatments but nothing works. The infection seems to resist any treatment my Dr. can give. I was on amoxicillin or however its spelled and the infection jumped from one tonsil to the other. I can't figure out what the reason is for these problems, I have done several HIV test and blood test and nothing can be found. According to the Dr. my blood work is completely perfect.
The doctor said that he believed it was Tonsillitis. He did a culture to check for strep throat. The results were negative. He prescribed amoxicillin 500 mg 3 times a day. I started feeling a stiff neck, Lymph nodes, minor chills and fatigue (no fever). The medication made my mouth extremely dry and irritated and white tongue and white near my tonsils. on 12/10/13 i returned to the ER and he prescribed Doxycycline Hyclate MG and Clotrinazole Troche 10 MG. my head ache, fatigue is gone.
Changing the antibiotic can be considered if it continues. I would also send it for analysis, including testing for C. Difficile - a bacteria that is associated with antibiotic use. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. This answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - the information presented is for patient education only. Please see your personal physician for further evaluation of your individual case. Kevin Pho, M.D. www.kevinmd.
My question is since I overdosed on the Amoxicillin can it still be giving muscle pain for two months on and off or is it something else? ANd can amoxicillin mess with your liver if you overdose? What the heck did this spot come from?
I started takimg amoxicillin 3 days ago for tonsillitis and the next day after i started i began having runny eggwhite like orange discharge :/ i read the antibiotic can change discharge but i was wondering if the problem im having sounds like its from that or if it may be some sort of bacterial infection? Also TMI but my inner lips are irritated and that only happens when i go pee so maybe i have a scratch or somethimg.
I got ysterday a one-month antibiotic for chronic tonsillitis. It was very difficult to get the diagnosis for the long-lasting ear pain. Ysterday one ENT doctor believed me that I have an infection in my tonsils. He pressed the left tonsil and pus was discharged. This possibly also revealed the cause for my long-lasting erythrocyte microcytosis. Because my thyroid medication has been decreased, my esophageal sphincters may have bocome too loose.
On Monday I went doctor since I had some fever and sore throat, he said it was tonsillitis and prescribed me Augmentin 500g (amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium) and paracetamol. Okay now I don't have fever anymore and I don't feel the pain, it's getting better so I've stoped with paracetamol. But since yesterday I've started to have diarrhea. It's painless, I just notice some sounds in my stomach and a sudden need to go wc.
On 12/03 I went to the ER. The doctor said that he believed it was Tonsillitis. He did a culture to check for strep throat. The results were negative. He prescribed amoxicillin 500 mg 3 times a day. Since then i been feeling a stiff neck, Lymph nodes, minor chills and fatigue (no fever). I am also suffering from dry mouth and what i believe are thrushes. In my tongue and mouth.

I started taking erythromycin yesterday for tonsillitis. I have taken 3 doses so far. In the past I have had mild allergic reactions to antibiotics....such as amoxicillin and bactrum where I have broken out in hives. Its been almost 24 hours since I started taking the medicine....should I still be worried about an allergic reaction? Would any reaction have occurred already? I have had a headache and slight nausea, is that normal? Any info would be helpful so I can put my mind at ease.

Could the doctors have missed something in his test results? When you get tested for STDs do you get tested for everything? How quickly would an STD appear in the throat? What could the swollen, white, sensitive, gums indicate? Im on amoxicillin, would that clear up my swollen gums? Im scared and nervous and don't know how to tell anyone what I'm feeling....
Right, been very unwell since Thurs, had sore throat, earache and headache, went to see a Doc on Sunday=tonsillitis, so now taking penicillin. Great, penicillin started working straight away, but the feeling faint/sick stayed and I've been being sick. I can't move from my bed I feel so unwell and constantly sick as well as occasionally being sick.
