193609 tn?1292183893 The doctor took one look at him and said he is reacting to the Amoxicillin. She said that she had to culture for strep, and told us no doctor should ever treat strep without confirming it with a culture. So, she did a culture and it came back neg for strep. However, she said that is not totally accurate because he was on amoxicillin so it might be neg even if he did have strep. She looked at his throat and said it was still filled with pus and put him on Azithromycin to treat the strep.
Avatar n tn I took some amoxicillin for an ear infection about 2 weeks ago and I got a rash 5 days after I was taking the medication. I still have this rash and have had it for about 1 week now. My mom called my doctor and my doctor said to get me off the medication right away. So that day I took some Benadryl to relieve my itching-pain. The itching stopped for about 2 hours then came back.
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 n tn and I'm sure like many others, I have several concerns regarding my sons newly acquired ear infection and now cold. He ran a fever for a couple of days which led to a visit to the docs office. She diagnosed the suspected ear infection. Prior to the visit, he had minor swelling in one of his eyes...and swelling in both eyes a couple of days after. I brought this to the attention of the ped and she didn't make a big deal about it.
Avatar n tn It sounds like from the symptoms and tests you've had done that you probably had a sinus infection. Most chronic sinus infections(you stated you've felt "stuffy" for 2 months) are acute sinus infections that went undetected, which happens a lot. The stuffiness you felt could certainly be related to your sinusitis. The antibiotic you're on is Augmentin(amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium)and is a first choice in the treatment of sinus infections.
Avatar n tn He or she will then most likely do several eye tests to check for dry eye and for corneal ulcerations. Then he or she will give you the appropriate eye medication. Eye infections can be bacterial, viral, traumatic or secondary to systemic problems. Only your veterinarian will be able to differentiate. Some times the infection can be a combination. In this case more than one course of treatment may be necessary. If I can help you furthur please let me know. Thanks, Dr.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering badly now for over a week. I was prescribed amoxicillin 250mg on monday and have been taking the regularly ever since. MY daughter is also poorly with a very bad chest. I went back to docs on weds as the pain was so bad I was crying all day and wailing with pain & not being able to cope, I was given ear drops & codydramol which i have been using. The ear seems completely blocked, i can hear nothing but a constant whooshing sound which I guess is my heartbeat.
Avatar m tn Also, I received propoxphene for pain, which works well. The swelling continued into my ear and eye by the following day (today), and I was in great discomfort, so I went to a local "express-care" facility for a second opinion. The doc changed my med from amoxicillin to Levaquin 500mg / 1 per day. The persistant pressure in my face is driveing me absolutely nuts. Any advice???? Would an IV of antibiotics be better? What should i do?
173975 tn?1216261375 ) I haven't had a bladder infection in 20 years! Why now?
Avatar m tn I got a shot for gonorrhea and had to take zithromax. A few days later I developed an eye infection and still have that eye infection. Is it possible I could have gotten gonorrhea in the eye from touching myself since I was infected? How is this treated if the shot didn't take care of it?
Avatar n tn Oral antibiotics are good for ear infections but not so good for most conjunctivitis. Eye drops or ointment is the treatment of choice. Moreover there are many good antibitic drops/ointments such as polytrim or erythromycine that are available in generics for $5 or less (at Walmart 400 for $4 program) Check back with the pediatrician and see if he/she will prescribe a antibiotic drop.
1729448 tn?1342098337 I've had a sinus infection for at least 2 months. I'm on my 3rd round of antibiotics (my primary care put me on amoxicillin..the one I was on first that a doctor at urgent care prescribed.) And it won't go away. The post nasal drip..I wake up a couple mornings with it really bad then it stops and I just cough up a lot of gross stuff then a couple weeks later I have post nasal drip again. My ears hurt and my eyes hurt...only now, my vision is getting blurry. I don't think its my eye sight...
Avatar n tn I have been sick for more than seven months with an infection that causes flu like symptoms and blisters in my throat about every week or two and lasts for about two or three weeks each time. Along with that it attacks my eyes (if I don't take enough eye health herb supplements to hold it off) causing scratchy pain and discharge, even green mucus in my nose and popping, pressure and ringing in my ears, along with headaches and early on, painful little red bumps on my face and nose.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately you probably can't wait. The likelyhood that the eye will be damaged, the infection will spread to the other eye, is high. Are their other vets in the area? What your kitten needs is antibiotics. Now, you can, if it's a real emergency, give a cat amoxicillin (children's Amox is what some vet's use) if you have some available. If you decide to try this, let me know.
Avatar m tn Hi, I've been having chronic pain behind my left eye now for over a year, it's not constant but at certain times it flares up and causes me agony, it also hurts a lot first thing after I wake up. My left nostril is also blocked maybe 60% of the time while my right one is fine. My neck on the left side also sometimes flares up but doesn't hurt too much. Besides those I feel fine, no cold feeling or anything.
Avatar n tn Upon examination the situation turned out not to be serious but the vet prescribed amoxicillin. She has been given the antibiotic for the past 4 days. Today I noticed that overnight she developed a cloudy eye. I examined it and there is no sign of discharge or redness, I haven't noticed a scratch either; it only looks different when light is reflected on it.
Avatar f tn (Except right after infection, Lyme needs longer antibiotic treatment that the few weeks that most infection require, so even though you've been treated for other things, the treatments were likely not for infections like Lyme -- which often takes months of treatment with specific antibiotics not often used for other ailments.
Avatar m tn Ive had recurring pain behind my left eye for over a month now. Its there every day. Its like a throbbing kind of pain in the back of my eye and sometimes causes a headache, sometimes its bad and sometimes minor, but nonetheless it hasnt gone away at all and its been going on for about a month now. My eye always looks normal, never red. I thought it might be a sinus infection so i bought some decongestant medicine, didnt work. Then i tried neti pot, didnt work.
Avatar f tn When I got to the ER, they couldnt believe how bad my infection was!!! So please keep an eye on it and go back to ER again if you have more signs or worsening- I know firsthand how quickly they can get severe!! I was amazed once i started on ABX how quickly the symptoms improved too considering it was so bad. They almost admitted me that night out of fear of it spreading to my kidney's befoer the ABX would kick in, but I was very lucky it didnt.
Avatar n tn Two months ago on my way back from a camping trip I started getting pain in my left eye when I'd look to the left or right. The following Monday I saw an eye doctor that treated me for pink eye, with Neomycian, that it turned out I was alergic to. In about two weeks the pain/swelling/headaches went away on their own. I felt and looked fully recovered as my eyes would not be swollen in the mornings and my vision was excelent once again.
Avatar m tn After being prescribed amoxicillin and metronidazole, i started taking 4 amoxicillin pills over a period of one evening and the following day. i ignored the dentists orders and thought i would be get ill from taking a combination of metronidazole and amoxicillin as i read about people feeling sick from metronidazole. However, after the 3rd dose of amoxicillin, my stomach didnt feel right at all and i felt sick.
Avatar n tn I also had pain in my face, mostly on the left side, under my left eye and around my ear. I recovered from the vrus and was feeling pretty much normal when about 10 days ago I suddenly felt like the ground was moving beneath me. I now have been dizzy for 10 days. I don't feel faint, I just feel unsteady, like I can't walk a straight line. It is much worse in the evenings. I don't feel it laying in bed, and if I sit on the couch with my head supported I feel ok.
Avatar n tn First, you should see a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon as soon as possible. Amoxicillin may not be the best antibiotic for your infection. Infections in the face can rapidly spread to the orbits (eyes), sinuses and brain.

Avatar n tn The doctor told me it was most likely an abscess and wrote me a prescription for 250 mg of Amoxicillin (3x a day) and told me to get to a dentist the next day because she assumed they were going to want to lance/drain the infection. I was able to see a dentist today and after an x-ray he determined extraction would be the best option for me since the decay extends under the bone.
643455 tn?1223406587 I ended up having a large abcess that needed to be drained and the infection was so severe, that my eye was almost swollen shut on morning when I woke up. The dentist had first prescribed me amoxicillin and that was not working so good so she said she was going to give me a stronger antibiotic called cyclobenzaprine.
Avatar f tn I went to the urgent care who diagnosed me with an ear infection and swollen lymph nodes, and gave me amoxicillin. 5 days of suffering later, which included new sinus pain and ear popping (although my fevers had become more intermittent - only in the morning and midday), I had what I thought at the time was a reaction to the amoxicillin and I went back to the doctor. They said my ear drums were retracted and no longer looked infected.
