It is advisable to contact a local health care provider. Do write to us again. Best luck and regards!
Doctor has me on Azithromycin for 3 days now. The swelling and pain is still with me and I'm going crazy! What should I do? Thank you for your help!
and felt fever-ish, weak So I went back to the dentist and did an x-ray but she can't find anything wrong with the tooth filled or any abscess..so she gave me antibiotic-amoxicillin and took 200mg of Ibuprofen for pain. But after 3 days, I had a bad reaction to Amoxicillin. Went to a medical Doctor and I told her what happened, had an x-ray again and gave me a shot for inflammatory..and gave me a new antibiotic- azithromycin and a 600 mg ibuprofen every after 6 hours.
Azithromycin can you use it for a tooth abses?
Is it from the antibiotics (Azithromycin) I've been taking? I've also been pretty stressed for the past 3 weeks about HIV.I've been told that I was in a No-Risk situation,but since,I've been having many oral problems even though my test came back negative.I've also had an abscessed tooth for about 2 months.
You can have allergy testing done, but a) that won't help you much for your current abscess situation as it may take a while to get the testing done an dresults back and b) I don't know if they can or do testing for medication allergies.
