Doxycycline for tooth infection

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline for tooth infection


Avatar m tn I think the same thing happened to me. I took doxycycline for a week for a sinus infection. Noticed my arms began to feel dry and itchy. Then plenty of little red bumps broke out on my arms. My arms itched like mad. Tried OTC Cortisone10, but it did not help. Finally I went to HMO clinic. Doctor prescribed a very mild lotion to be applied every 12 hours. Two days later I still had no relief, the rash had spread all over body. It had been awakening me at night.
Avatar m tn I have been taking Doxycycline for about ten days now. It is the only new thing that I have done in the last month. In the last three days I have been feeling chest discomfort, shortness of breath and have PVCs. Could this be a side effect of the antibiotic. I also have a tooth waiting for extraction next week, but is not bothering me at all.
Avatar n tn In September the same symptoms started again, and another dentist said it was the tooth that I had root canal in 5 years ago had an infection and gave me penicillin, advising to perform the operation again. The pain subsided, but I did not follow the course of antibiotics properly. Three weeks later I went back to Bulgaria and saw two different dentists who both told me the route canal was perfect, and nothing else is visible on the X ray.
Avatar m tn If it is a urinary tract infection it probably doesn't matter to wait but it may be uncomfortable for you for a few days so that is my opinion on it. If you have a fever you may be getting the dizziness and tiredness from that and/or fighting off the infection and/or from the antibiotics. Some species of E. coli and E. faecalis can be resistant too but usually they can find antibiotics to treat both of these at this point.
Avatar f tn What antibiotic is better to take for a tooth infection/ absess tooth Ciprofloxacin or Bactrim?
Avatar m tn at the bottom, which meant it probably wouldn't have taken anyway, it didn't relieve the pain or infection. Went next to endodontist, who recommended doing root canal on tooth #2 in back, because it was suspicious and severely reactive to cold. They did that as well - that was the same time I went to ENT though, see below, so I started current round of antibiotics and had root canal done at the same time.
Avatar n tn over thses 6 months pain and discomfort has reduced greatly but it is still there . All STD tests were neg . also I have been on Cipro for 30 days doxycycline for 3 weeks now I am taking Amoxicillin 500 mg cap tev ffor next 10 days ( but its for on going tooth infection which i had for about 6 months / gum / Root canal ) Questions : 1.Is this possible that this infection is related to STD ? 2.How long can a infection last for and will it go away after time , if not what happens then ? 3.
Avatar n tn If the cranial nerve damage happens ,which is typical with Lyme-every ER MD should think Lyme for Bell's Palsy symptoms, a cranial nerve issue, then your nerves (neuropathy), and ciliary function (moving mucus and infection out) creates the perfect environment for repeated infection and scarring, dysfunction. I have left ear, neck muscle, arm and hand numbness, and a negative MRI. Lyme disease is an epidemic people. Ask why. Read the book, LAB 257, by attorney Michael Carrol.
Avatar m tn I don't know how long an LLMD would prescribe Zith for an early infection. I think Amoxicillin is actually the 2nd choice drug for early Lyme. My doc sometimes prescribes Zith along with another Lyme treating antibiotic for a combo therapy.
Avatar m tn A sore throat is usually a result of bacterial or viral infection. It's possible that a 'bad' tooth has an infection at the base of the root and gets into the bloodstream and then settles in the throat. I would recommend seeing a dentist to get your teeth evaluated. Rather a dentist, I have booked an appointment with an ENT Specialist this evening to discuss about my throat.
Avatar n tn Swimmergirl is right, an infection is a significant concern, both bacterial in her case (staph and possibly MRSA), and even more worrisome would those like rodina with eye pain. Nose + eye pain is very worrisome for herpes infection of the eye which can be very serious. It needs immediate evaluation from an ophthalmologist. A painful red nose for the rest of you... that's not normal and worth getting your doctor to examine.
Avatar n tn discharge at different times of the months (particularly a week before you period) will change and become irritating for some. This is often mistaken for a yeast infection by the women, and when cultured, comes back normal. I tried switching pills, but I sufferered for years. I even tried depoprovera and got some relief, but that had other side effects. I got fed up and decided to try a non-hormonal method of birth control. It worked!
Avatar m tn I am waiting for the urine test result and hopefully they'll be able to name the infection. I've been on Doxycycline 100mg twice a day for 7 days. No improvement. After I went to the doctor's suspecting it was fungal and was prescribed Fluconazole 50mg once a day for 14 days and Canesten Cream (which I applied on the penis twice a day). No improvement (the cream made it actually worse so I stopped).
Avatar f tn then i got sick with allergies and cold symptoms so my sister took me to carenow where i got doxycycline hyclate 100mg 2x a day for 10 days to clear up my sinus infection. right after i stopped taking the doxycycline i went to the dentist for a bad cavitity on my back tooth and got amoxicillin 500mg 3x a day for 10 days. it is possible that those meds not only cleared up what they were prescribed for but the std as well?
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar m tn She got angry at seeing me yesterday but gave me the recomended CDC Doxycycline dose I had been under antibiotic treatment for staph, then tooth sbcess, then c. diff infection, then had teeth removed, then caught std. So she probably thinks I am a hypochondriac by now. Is there a strain of chlamydia that is resistant to Ceftriaxone and Zithromax, but susceptible to Doxycycline?
Avatar n tn My doctor diagnosed me with prostatitis based on a burning pain in the end of my penis and he prescribed Levaquin/Bactrim for the infection and I took if for 20 days and still had burning. Then he prescribed Doxycyline for 20 day and still a burning. I had a urine culture and it was clean of bateria. I started another twenty days of Doxycyline.
1541943 tn?1293125317 The glandular swelling can be caused by an insect bite, abscess, or infectious process. An tick borne infection may not show up in the blood for 3 weeks or so, therefore, although you just found a tick on your dog it may not be possible to diagnose a tick borne disease yet. If your dog is improving on the cephalexin than it might be best to keep her on it. Once she has finished with the cephalexin she can be placed on doxycycline.
Avatar n tn Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar n tn Temporal arteritis, internal ear infection, TMJ and tooth decay can all cause a temple pain. Infection in the eye, glaucoma, near and far sightedness and sinusitis are the other causes. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP to run tests and examination to clinch a diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar m tn In the summer this year the doctor prescribed me with 10 days of amoxicillin as well as a avamys nasal spray this got rid of my infection for around 4 months until I went and had the influenza vaccine in September then it all went wrong I caught the flu and I am back at stage 1 I have had this infection now for nearly 4 months I have been on doxycycline which in my opinion were useless and a waste of money I have been on amoxicillin which help for a week as well as coamoxiclav as by this tim
Avatar f tn Toothache can also lead to similar kind of pain. Try antibiotic cover (cephalaxine, doxycycline etc) for 5 days along with anti inflammatory drugs. If apin persist even after consuming antibiotics, consultation with doctor is must to rule out of diagnose the cause. ”A tension headache is the most common headache, and yet it's not well understood. A tension headache generally produces a diffuse, usually mild to moderate pain over your head.

Avatar m tn Most have given me Tobradex, prednisolone, zylet, allergy medication, doxycycline, I even had a root canal in an infected tooth and was given clyndamycine and amoxycillin. Could this be an infection caused by cerebrospinal fluid? I even have eyebrow twitching and pain where the fracture is. These symptoms are occurring in both eyes. I don't know what tests to do or what type of doctor to see and my eyes keep getting smaller over time. I see floaters and flashes, too. Please help me....
Avatar m tn you have been (over)treated for an infection that you almost certainly were not exposed to. Time for you to put your fears and anxiety aside.
Avatar n tn If tooth does have lost 90% of supporting bone, tooth is generally very mobile. Very often the tooth will fall our itself. If tooth is non-salvable, flap surgery is not indicated. However, if certain teeth are still salvable. flap surgery does help completely debride the contaminated root surface and prolong the life of tooth.
Avatar f tn An 11-year-old boy treated with doxycycline for brucellosis was evaluated for painless brown nail discoloration. Doxycycline was initiated for brucellosis but stopped when the boy developed photo sensitivity, but 15 days after the initiation of therapy brown nail discoloration developed . Other than the brown discoloration, the boy's physical condition was normal and the discoloration disappeared within one month.
