She still has hives 3 days after taking her last dose of amoxicillin.. the hives come and go. She is now on Omnicef.. the hives are still coming and going.
My son has had a severe allergic reaction to Amoxicillin with hives, high fever, and trouble breathing with a visit to the Emergency room. His doctor just prescribed Omnicef for him today. He has had one dose. Should I be concerned?
My 15 month old sone has had 2 ear infections and the first time we gave him amoxicillin and nothing happened. Then just 2 weeks ago he had another ear infection so he got amoxicillin again and within six dasy of being on it he broke out in a rash that was all over his body and it looked like welts. So we took him to the emergency room just this past saturday and he said it was an allergic reaction to amoxicillin.
He tested negative for strep throat but his throat was red and swollen as well as his lymph nodes (Left larger than right). He is allergic to Amoxicillin, Augmentin, and Cephloxin (unsure of spelling). They are treating him with Omnicef 3 ml bid x 10 days. He took two doses yesterday and one this morning, with hardly any relief so far. How long does it normally take to start working? and......
Hello and hope you are doing well. Have a culture and sensitivity test done to find out the correct antibiotic that the infecting organism is sensitive to and taking this medication for the required amount of days may help to clear infection. Amoxicillin and augmentin can cause bowel discomfort and diarrhea. For any antibiotic replace with lactobacillus, which is the normal bacterial flora. Yogurt is a natural lactobacillus supplement. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
She may be allergic to the amoxicillin so speak to the doctor who possibly may tell you to stop giving it..it does sound like a reaction .
I had fever, sore throat, white coating in my throat, sinus pressure, and headache. My doctor put me on amoxicillin which slowly helped. A few days after I finished the ten day treatment, my post-nasal drip and sore throat came back. It lasted 2-3 days, then went away. A few days later, it was back, and worse. I went to the doctor again, who said it looked like I had a throat abcess. He gave me omnicef and medrol pack.
Then to add insult to injury when I took her for her 4 month check(one week later) up they discovered she had an ear infection and was wheezing a bit when she breathed. So now she is back on the antibiotic omnicef AND breathing treatments(which don't seem to be working in my opinion) and still as stuffy in the nose as can been. This has been just a nightmare to me as I just want her to be healthy.
This is when he received two shots of rocefrin and the steroid shot, and antibiotic was changed to omnicef. It is now Saturday, and he's still having sharp pains in his ears and throat. Please advise! Thanks in advance.
I was wondering if you found out anything about your daughters hives and joint pain. My daughter is 8, she was on omnicef for strep throat back in January and developed hives and had severe joint pain for over a week. Yesterday, she started on azithromycin for another round of strep throat and started breaking out in hives again this morning. Her joints are now swelling. We'd love to get to the bottom of whatever's causing this.
From my own personal experience, I had all my wisdom teeth removed last year and took a vicodin while I was still numb in anticipation of the pain and felt nauseous and threw up. So I would discontinue the vicodin for now. Vomiting from antibiotics could be a side effect as well but I'm thinking it may be more due to the vicodin also. So how many days of antibiotics have you taken so far? Amoxicillin is similar to augmentin.
Prior to this she has had numerous ear infections with PE tubes and still more infections, Numerou courses of antibiotics including omnicef, amoxicillin, amoxicillin with clavulanic acid. And most of the time her ear infections are still persistent. We met my daugter at the ER as we just dropped her off. The week prior (New Years Eve) we were in the ER with her, she had a soaring temperture of 104.4 and vomiting spells every 10 minutes or so for several hours.
Following the surgery I ended up with chronic sinus infection, for which I took a course of amoxicillin. That did not help and the oral specialist put me on augmentum. Upon completion of that, infection came back 3 days later. My dentist explained that inane a chronic sinus infection and would have to take implant out. He removed the implant, cleaned the sinus and prescribed another course of augmentum. That did not help with the problem, as infection did not go away.
He was put on amoxil and had an allergic reaction so he has been taking omnicef. The Dr told us this week that the omnicef has not done anything and that he was going to give him a round of antibiotic shots. So far my son has had 2 of the 3 shots. My first question is how quickly do these shots work? My other question is: Is there some underlying problem that is causing these ear infections, something more serious? He has not had any other type of infection i.e.
She went around 2 weeks and suffered another UTI which is now resistant to the Amoxicillin. She had a clear urine after being treated with Omnicef. Her preventative med was chanced to Bactrim. Two weeks later another UTI. Omnicef drug of choice for acute UTI then preventative med changed to Macrobid. Well 2 days ago she started having frequency, spiked temp yesterday, went to pediatrician this a.m. looks like another UTI. Again she made it about 2 weeks infection free.
Had strep throat tests 3 times during the first 4 weeks, and all came back neg. Was prescribed Amoxicillin first, then Avelox, then Omnicef with steriods. Nothing has worked. Also had some joint pain in front of my right ear at the jaw joint...causing bad headaches. Also had a layer of white stuff on my tongue off and on for a month. My ENT looked scoped my throat, and said I had evidence of acid reflux damage to my vocal cords, although I don't remember having acid reflux.
Augmentin doesn't even touch them and Amoxicillin is too weak, he only took it once and it only got worse. Half the time the Omnicef doesn't help either and that's as strong as they go for oral. Cam gets the Rocephin shots for his ear infections. They don't want to tube him because his reflux is so bad and they feel that's the issue. He takes Reglan, Zantac, and Prevacid 15 mg solutabs all twice a day.
I got prescirbed docycycline and omnicef and symptoms of swelling have went down but now I have conjunctivitis in both eyes and still have painful urination and red slightly swollen urethral opening. Doc said there was no bacteria in the swab and urine test?
She had an allergic reactin to Omnicef and this med is supposedly in the same family. Anyway, she has only had an extremely mild rash this time so we have continued giving the med to her. But she screams terribly each time we give it to her--kind of like it is hurting her. She has taken numerous meds since she was born and hasn't reacted like this to any of them. Then this morning she threw up everything in her tummy about 30min-1hour after giving the medicine to her.
In the meantime I was out of meds and now I am having sciatica, migraines, and tingling feet, and just overall very moody. Just annoying. So now new one is Amoxicillin and Biaxin so far I am tolerating it fine. I notice this Lymes affects my moods sometimes and I seem much more grouchy and tired than usual.
Also, the infection has been treated with numerous antibiotics (amoxicillin, flagyl, omnicef, augmentin, clindamycin), and all seem to help at first, but only clindamycin has lasting effects. Not even augmentin worked. Any idea on what kind of bacteria would respond to clindamycin but not augmentin?
I am 55 and have always taken antibiotics before dental cleanings and invasive medical procedures for MVP with minor regurgitation. The cut was cleaned, covered and I was given a tetanus shot. 12 hours later, I took 2 gr. of amoxicillin on my own, then 12 hours later, another 2 gr. , then 12 hours later, 1 gr. because it was a weekend and I could not contact any Dr.
A week later, both ears got infected again and dr. prescribed omnicef. Daughter started to vomit and ran fevers of 105 and almost dehydrated. Went to ER and got a shot of rocephin antibiotic, since she could not hold down the antibiotics well. 2 days later she started running fevers again, and Dr. gave her another shot of rocephin, which he said should definately clear up the infection. 5 day follow up- infection still there with pus comming out of her ear now. Dr.
Treatment can be antibiotics (perhaps, tho, the Omnicef didn't work, in which case Amoxicillin is another choice), and new prescription ear drops to better relieve pain, and if worse comes to terrible they can surgically put some tubes in your ears to allow for drainage of the infection pus in your ears, like they do for little kids. And in fact, it is very important that the infection not build up too much, might affect your eardrum function!
the next night she started throwing up and running a fever..she was on amoxicillin so i figured i would wait and let it kick in..that night she began breathing rapidly but said she was fine and did not need to go to the er..the dr even said she could wait til morning to be seen...i got to the dr the next morning to find out her o2 level was 40%..needless to say..she had an autoimmune disorder called good pastures syndrome...we did not know until she passed away that night.
I believe there are other things I could take besides Ketek (and the amoxicillin), and will mull this over while I wait to see the gastro next week and then take the issue back to the LLMD. I'm also considering using Buhner's book to go the herbal route, but would like to give the abx as much opportunity as possible since they are working, then maybe follow up with a 'dessert' course of herbs. Thank you everyone for the comments, much appreciated.
If it is not clearing up then they should finish the course and put him on a different category of antibiotic (like if they had him on amoxicillin, they should get out of that family(augmentin is in the same family) and try maybe something called omnicef, that is what worked for our daughter, and then we had to have the Rocephin shots. They have to switch the antibiotic for immunity build-up and for what works on the infections your child gets.
stiff, the main area of most pain seems to be between crease of my eye and tip of my ear, it is quite swollen there and seems enlarged compared to other side of my face. I am doing everything ive been told to do and nothing seems to be improving. Today i noticed there is white stuff inside my ear, which could be bacterial infection? Am i on the right medication for this? It seems to be affecting my middle ear more so than outer, outer is just numb but inner is very painful.
I admit that none were an exotic variety; Amoxicillin, Penicillin, Azithromax, and a number of mycin's, and years ago, several months of tetracycline. Keep in mind that these reactions are extremely rare, and cautionary notes are often included as a CYA for the drug company.
We have tried amoxicillin, augmentin, omnicef and then a shot of something (I think it starts with R) and the shot seemed to be the only thing that worked. She gets such bad diarreah from the antibiotics and ineveitably gets a yeast rash on her buns, I just feel so bad for her. The dr is forcing me to go, so I will at least go and see what he says.
