Avatar f tn 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? I know myself and my grandmother are allergic to penicillin not sure if that has any relation to amoxicillin ? (although my mother isn't allergic to any type of medicine, seems to skip a generation) .
Avatar n tn Symptoms of Amoxicillin Rash An Amoxicillin skin rash usually starts from the abdomen, covers the back, and sometimes spreads to the arms, legs and the face and appears as small flat spots which are usually red or dark pink in color. A non-allergic Amoxicillin rash in children and adults does not itch. Almost 10% of children taking Amoxicillin can develop an itchy rash which may result in blisters, where as, a non-allergic rash doesn't cause itching and therefore, no blisters.
Avatar n tn Children weighing 88 pounds and over should follow the recommended adult dose schedule. Children weighing under 88 pounds will have their dosage determined by their weight.

Avatar n tn I haven't even been to a doctor because they've rarely helped me or my children in the past. In the meantime, I'm going to abstain from sex and see if my body heals itself while I keep digging for answers. If any believers are out there, get to praying for answers, because I haven't heard any good ones yet.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
Avatar f tn They did do a Cat scan then and more blood work and said everything came back normal. Since that awful day in June, the pressure in my head has NEVER left. It has certainly let up a lot so I no longer think I'm having a stroke but it has completely ruined my life. Since the ER visits, I've been to a neurologist, endocrinologist, my family doctor, a gastroenterologist, and an ear nose and throat doc.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn Most but not all patients will describe a feeling of tension or stiffness in the cranial muscles, especially in the forehead.

Avatar m tn I have woken up early in the morning before my alarm clock goes off, or even in the middle of the night now and then and have not felt one PVC. It seems that once I'm unconscious, these are also suppressed, or I'm just super relaxed and the heart pumps without anything irritating it to cause a PVC. Two questions: 1) Has anyone experienced or is experiencing anything like this at all? 2) These facts are always true, and the PVCs are not that random. Don't these symptoms point to a clear cause??
Avatar n tn Due to dental work I was on a 14 day, 500 Mg course of amoxicillin in December (no effect on the Afib). This seems like half the current recommended dosage for H. pylori. I am concerned that this may have been just enough to produce a resistant H. pylori. Any thoughts on this? Are there any alternate meds recommended if the amoxicillin is a problem? I know this is a bit unusual, but please, I am looking for specific information.
Avatar n tn If this medication is essential to your health, your doctor may advise you to discontinue breastfeeding until your treatment is finished. Recommended dosage Return to top ADULTS AND CHILDREN 12 YEARS OLD AND OVER Continue taking penicillin V for the full time of treatment, even if you begin to feel better after a few days. Failure to take a full course of therapy may prevent complete elimination of the infection. It is best to take the doses at evenly spaced times, around the clock.
Avatar f tn If s/he tests positive, then s/he will need amoxicillin. I have no idea for how long...are you aware of Dr. Jones in Connecticut? He is a pediatric Lyme specialist who probably does phone consultations. My daughter was on a prophylactic (reduced) dose of Amoxicillin for just over two years to prevent bladder & kidney infections. She had no adverse effects at all. She also never developed a bacterial infection during those two years. :).
Avatar n tn Thought it may be transferred from rubbing against thigh but last night noticed patches on neck, shoulder and back - primarily red but a bit duskier in the middle This morning have 6-8 spots on back and 2-3 on each leg Thought may be ringworm and have been treating the upper thigh for passed 3 days - doesn't seem to have stopped it from growing and they seem to grow too large too fast no fever or other symptoms other than fatigue any thoughts - I can't make it to a dr until Thursday and a
Avatar f tn I just finished 7 days of antibiotics because I tested positive for Strep B. The high dosage of amoxicillin gave me a yeast infection and diarreah which really sucked, but it was completley safe for the baby. I'll be 11 wks this Saturday, and my Dr. told me it's nothing to be concerned about. It's not sexually transmitted or anything like that. It's like a bacteria, don't worry!!
Avatar n tn She said that sometimes sinus infections don't get cleared up in the 10 day antibiotic dosage....if my child has a true sinus infection she will prescribe antibiotics for 20 days. She said that sometimes they seem better but the infection is not all the way cleared up and can reoccur sooner. She also prescribes a stronger antibiotic than amoxicillin. My son also had that persistent cough for months when he was younger, he's outgrown it now.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar f tn Antibiotics that may be used include amoxicillin or penicillin. Pregnant women in Lyme endemic areas should be particularly vigilant about avoiding areas with high tick exposure. Less clear is what to recommend to women who contracted Lyme disease prior to pregnancy and who have been treated adequately. Research suggests that these women appear to be at no increased risk of adverse fetal outcomes than women who did not have Lyme disease. That is good news, of course.
Avatar m tn I have had a few more dots in a cauliflower cluster on the head of my penis which have not changed in more than a month. All these dots and blemishes exist to this day. I am unaware of my HSV1 status. 1. What is the likely hood that I have been infected with HSV1 and have not had an outbreak by now? 2. Could I have gotten it in my urethra, thus not making it visible on the exterior? 3.
Avatar f tn If you are, you may need to switch to a different type. You are going to need to some type of outside support in dealing with your children if you're going to get through this. You may even need to delay treatment until your children are older. The psychological side effects are caused by the Interferon - not the ribavirin. Please get some support as soon as possible. Take care of yourself so you can take care of them.

Avatar f tn I know my LLMD is a great Lyme doc, I have connected with someone who lives in my area who also goes to him for Lyme and Babesia which she also gave her children and he is treating them with all the right meds and dosages (according to what I've been reading anyways).
Avatar f tn It is an inflammatory disease of unknown cause that can cause clusters of cells in almost any organ system in your body (it usually affects the lungs, but luckily mine didn't). It took the doctors a while to link all the symptoms together but they finally decided that I had sarcoidosis which caused the GM as well and inflammation in my joints ( I also, at the same time had mono). Pandora, your story sounds so similar to mine.
Avatar n tn Then over Christmas, twice, I forgot to take a tablet in the evening then resumed the regular dosage. During this time, I also took a home pregnancy test and it was positive! Two days later, 1-1-02, I had pink spotting again. It has continued for 6 days, turning brown when my doctor suggested taking one tab, then turning pink again when doctor suggested taking two again. I also had sharp shooting pains in my lower abdomen but have diminished to almost none now, 1-6-02.
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
