Avatar f tn Now she was diagnosed with an ear infection yesterday, she didn't see her normal doctor because her normal doctor was out of town, which is fine, I know the other doctor. the doctor gave her amoxicillin for her ear infection. Since last night's dosage and today's dosage, she has been breaking out in rash and the rash hasn't gone away. It doesn't itch, and she doesn't have a fever anymore. It looks like hives, could that be an allergy to the medicine?
Avatar n tn I have an 8 month old who was giving amoxicillin for ear infection and a bad sinus infection. after about 3 hours after I gave her the first dose. She broke out into a huge rash that covered here entire body. Then she started weezing and having problems breathing. So we took her to the ER. The doctor there said that she needed to go to the childrens hospital right away. So we went there and she stayed there for about 2 weeks. The doctor said that she was allergic to amoxicillin.

Avatar f tn I have also chronic infection in my left paranasal sinuses, but now my symptoms are not typical of sinus symptoms, preferly typical of ear infection. I have seen many ENT doctors, two dentists, two neurologists, a cardiologist and many other doctors. Temporomandibular and tooth disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, ear infections, a coronary artery disease have been excluded. Now there is only muscular dystonia taken into consideration as a possible cause. The left carotid sinus may be enlarged.
Avatar f tn She thought I had sinusitis and put my on amoxicillin. I took this for 10 days and still did lot have much relief. After being on winter break for two weeks and just basically relaxing and drinking a lot of fluids, I finally went to a doctor. They did blood testing for mono. I got the results back and they said everything was fine with my blood work. Ever since then, I still have had headaches, on and off stuffy nose and feverish feeling with no actual registered fever and fatigue.

Avatar n tn 3 weeks early, slow labor resulting in a c-section, colic, milk protein intolerance, zantac for a year, idiopathic hives at about 12-months, one year of zyrtec to trick his immune system out of responding, clean allergy tests at 18 months, febrile seizures starting at 18 months, tubes in both ears and adenoids removed at age 2 because of eight ear infections in six months, chronic nasal drainage resolved with nasonex, chronic cough (five months) resulting from an un-diagnosed sinus infection,
Avatar m tn There is a possibility that the infection could go into your ear, which happened to me once, but I found a way to avoid it. You could also accidentally rub infected snot into your eye and get an eye infection, if you are careless. The physiology of your head may be different from my head and you could experience a problem that I would not have, so it’s another risk you must assume. This technique will work for almost any infection of the nose, if you‘re willing to take the risk.
Avatar n tn Do any of you suffer from TMJ temporal mandibular joint disorder? One of the things that is a symptom is chronic blocked ears "TMJ may cause ear pain, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and hearing loss. Sometimes people mistake TMJ pain for an ear problem, such as an ear infection, when the ear is not the problem at all."

A 14- to 21-day course of antibiotics is usually recommended, but some studies suggest that courses lasting 10 to 14 days are equally effective. Intravenous antibiotics. If the disease involves the central nervous system, your doctor may recommend treatment with an intravenous antibiotic for 14 to 28 days.
Avatar dr m tn Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period. As an ear, nose and throat specialist with years of experience helping people breathe better through their noses, I have seen hundreds of people have dramatically improved lives. One of the most important reasons to breathe through your nose is because of a gas called nitric oxide that's made by your nose and sinus mucous membranes.
Avatar n tn That doesn't sound like anything to mess with. It sounds like some kind of infection or something with the fevers all the time, leg cramps could be a sign of alot of things and the symptom may not even be related. Search all you can! Good luck.
Avatar n tn Rehab has not worked, and the doctor claims it's needed b/c she has damaged nerve endings, and nothing else can help. Eight yrs ago an ear infection and some years later problems after being in a pool. She can't stand it any more. I am reading all your suggestions and am emailing her some in Colombia. Will keep you updated. If all fails here we're hitting Mass Gen'l's special ear division.
Avatar n tn Hi, I too am suffering from a vaginal strep infection. I got it when I started having sex with a new partner. I have tried two rounds of antibiotics. The first round took it away and then it came back in a couple of months again. I have a lot of irritation and redness. I am taking a probiotic and Colloidal Silver to see if it will help. Both of these items can be purchased through a health food store. I've been taking it now for about two weeks.
Avatar n tn I think it started around the time I had tonsillitis and I had to take a lot of antibiotics to get rid of it.. Then I had what seemed to be an ear infection.. but the doctor said it wasn't anything bacterial.. I drink a lot of Orange colored teas and coffees and I thought it was the cause.. Long story short is that I've had this orange Tongue for a while and think it may be Candida Yeast infection.. but can't get a definite answer for it..
Avatar n tn Most people get enough vitamin B12 in their diet, but a deficiency may occur in certain health conditions (e.g., poor nutrition, stomach/intestinal problems, infection, cancer). Serious vitamin B12 deficiency may result in anemia, stomach problems, and nerve damage. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Injections may be given daily when you first start treatment. Certain medical conditions (e.g.
Avatar n tn Then I came down with a sinus infection that lead to an inner ear infection. I was constantly dizzy, spaced out, ear congestion and uncomfortable sensation. After a month of this icky feeling, I finally took antibiotics which helped with the dizziness and the fuzzy head. I felt better for about six months, but still did not feel like myself. Now, the dizziness has returned along with the other symptoms.
Avatar n tn A week prior to this she was running a fever and I took her to the doctor and she had a mild ear infection. They gave her antibotics so I was surprised that she ended up with a cold a week later while she was still on the medicine and now that she is off of it she has a cold with the vomiting. I am so worried that something more serious it going on but then I read all of the other post and I feel a little better that my child is not the only one.
Avatar n tn So now i think before the next doctor treats for sinus infection have them swab your nose to check for infection because when i have them do that it comes up negetive.Two weeks ago i had CAT scan of sinus to prove to my doctor it wasnt my nose anymore. Also my family doctor has said there has been a lot of people coming in with similar symptoms he thinks is a virus.???? I have been dealing with this for over a year and have had the surgery tried the antibiotics allergy meds and its not better.
Avatar n tn He has a couple of unrelated complications which are impacting his activities. A sinus growth which resulted in ongoing infection. (just had sinus surgery) and a hernia which will need to be addressed. Being 34 with your livelihood dependent on your performance is a hard place to be. You are affected not only personally, but professionally and financially. Still, I would advise caution while you heal.
Avatar f tn I too had a bad reaction with Singulair. They are thinking the Candid (systemic infection) is the cause of the allergies/itch/hives... so many doctors put off diagnosing it but, it is really something you can look into. A place called Genova Labs (I think in South Carolina) has a stool sample test that you can send in on your own ($46 with no insurance) the test takes 2 weeks but, the results are worth it!!!!!!!!! Candid is SO overlooked! I think $46 is worth it....
Avatar n tn Usually, but not allways the patient will describe the sensation of having a constantly blocked nose even in the absence of any type of discharge or sinus infection. Most but not all patients will describe a feeling of tension or stiffness in the cranial muscles, especially in the forehead.

Avatar m tn But if you are having a sore throat then that would be the culture to get. Blood in the urine may be a kidney infection or urinary tract infection. It can also be due to other things like cystitis, and kidney stone or polyp in the bladder. You would feel the kidney stone but maybe it is a precursor to it coming through. So there are lots of reasons for blood in the urine. Do you actually see the blood in the urine or did the urinalysis show a few red blood cells.

Avatar m tn I can feel them crawl through the ear drum. When the ear drum pop I can feel them pour out of the ear like I won a slot machine. I am talking small and still feel them. The Indians and pioneer use to wet straw to smoke out the mites of homes. If had access to a smoke hut where they smoke food,I would be sleeping in it. The peroxide ear cleaning don't kill them and don't last. So I am hoping the smoke will help. We all have lungs that make co2.
Avatar n tn He of course tested me for Herpes, and even though I had read everything that you have all been through, and knowing that none of your tests had come back positive, I was still nervous. He also tested me for a yeast infection. Well, right there on the spot he said I had a horrible yeast infection and wrote me a prescription for 2 Diflucan pills. I was to take one (they stay in your system for 3 days) and then repeat 3 days later. He also gave me a prescription for a topical cream.
Avatar f tn Since the ER visits, I've been to a neurologist, endocrinologist, my family doctor, a gastroenterologist, and an ear nose and throat doc. I've had an MRI and got tested for everything under the sun it seems like and everything comes back normal. I've had two Lyme tests with my blood work and both came back negative. I continue to get new symptoms daily...besides the daily pressure in my head and dizziness, I've started running low grade fevers (never higher than 99.4 F).
