Azithromycin and the sun

Common Questions and Answers about Azithromycin and the sun


Avatar m tn I should note that on the right testicle there is a spider vein, which I don't think was there and the veins are a bit bigger and the skin is a bit more lose then on the left. Not by a lot. Erections, ejaculations, penis urination seem all fine. No rashes, discharge, back pain. I'm thinking of taking Azithromycin, would you advise this?
Avatar m tn I get panic attacks and can't focus and have to leave. That means the grocery store, etc. So now I'm sort of second guessing whether the Lyme is my eye problem or not. I've been to my eye doctor about this 2 times and he's ran every test possible to show me my eyes are perfectly healthy. So maybe it's my sinuses? Even then, could the Lyme be in there doing bad things? Ugh. I'm just annoyed with being confused about all of this. I used to enjoy getting out of the house and going places.
Avatar m tn I did peel away some loose, white skin around the lip sores and was in the sun most of the day. I did notice some fluid and blood seep from underneath the red portion where there was a crack. The 2 sores on my lip were dark red in color but no blisters around them.Sunday - Last day on took Zythromax. Woke up in the morning with cold chills and a fever and my lower lip was very swollen and sore.
Avatar m tn I would also ask whether you are commonly shirtless under the Caribbean sun, and whether you have noticed rash in other sun-exposed sites. Doxy is one of the most common of all drugs that causes photosensitivity, i.e. rashes involving sun-exposed skin, often looking like sunburn out of proportion to the amount of sun exposure. 3,4,6) Do not waste any money on syphilis or other STD testing. The antibiotics prevent positive tests by aborting or curing infection.
Avatar n tn I then took doxycycline for a month (2x / day) and had cure. Doxycycline makes me very sensitive to the sun and I much prefer Zithromax if possible. So my question is, if my only choices for Chlamydia were doxycycline vs. Zithromax and I preferred Zithromax over a longer period of time (since for me 1g didn't work); what would be the proper dosage for what period of time? Would it be 500 mg for 10 days (I have seen something like this before)?
1125622 tn?1295423718 But now I am day 3 going on 4 and I am going so crazy ! The pain and the burning is allmost too much to bear. these reactions in the past have went anywhere from 3 days to three weeks AFTER i stop taking the offending drug. I am so miserable right now, and the worst part is no one, not the doctors not my family nobody understands what im going through least of all me!? If it is a true allergic reaction, why no hives? rash?
Avatar m tn After I left the symptoms seemed to have subsided some what and life was almost back to normal again. I got the results back a week and a half later and the Gono and Chlam was negative. Syphilis, the person said that one was negative and one was reactive. They said they would call back and have another doctor take a look. After the call back they said that it was fine and that sometimes the tests give funky results. They just said to come back for a follow up in 12 weeks.
1464587 tn?1307495205 For those of you who have had unfortunetly made it into chronic lyme disease like myself and have the brain inflammation and central nervous system problems on top of it all....... this may sound very strange unless you have had this happen...... 3 times now when I have been in my worst way..... when I'm having all these symptoms and burnin up and everything when I close my eyes even repeativly I see the darkness from my eyelids being shut but also sooooooo many squiggly lines.....
Avatar n tn Hi there! Azithromycin is an antibiotic and is used for infections/ acne and would not have an effect on rash caused due to sun exposure. As for the acne if over the counter ointments have not been effective, you may consider consulting a dermatologist for appropriate treatment. For the sun rashes, it is advised to use sunblocks (SPF 30 and above) atleast 30 minutes before sun exposure and avoid direct sunlight if possible. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn Every football season when he starts his “two a day practices” with all of the heavily sweating, the hot heat, the sun, the steamy workouts, and the vigorous exercise along with the daily showers, all of this does a total ANNIHILATION of his CRP skin infection!!!!!! I mean his skin is as “shiny” as a sooth copper penny, I love this time of the year for him!!!.

Avatar n tn However, your dr may be onto something with Lupus. Sun exposure causes me to have extreme breakouts, migraine, unbelievable fatigue, and the swelling and joint pain increase, along with a giant red welty butterfly rash on my chest.
Avatar m tn She said bacteria from Oral Gonorrhea, will go through the whole body, affecting the entire system, eventually leading to an infection of the urethra. This sent me on a tailspin. After all of the exhaustive reading and testing, I'm unsure what to do or believe. Is this true? My Primary said it goes away, so do other threads here...I'm lost in this information, I understand nothing is 100% but it is varying widely.
3210170 tn?1346888153 He examined visually and did a swab for gonorrhea and chlamydia and gave me rx for azithromycin and  suprax so I would have it if results were positive as I was traveling across country. The burning stopped but the lymph glands in my jaw began to ache for the next couple of weeks, sometimes aching was quite pronounced (never swollen) and I had a headache (no fever).  On the 21st day post-exposure my penis began to burn with a vengeance.
Avatar f tn Even with my mouth close you can smell the horrible smell. Yesterday I went to the doctor about my spitting and slide in the smell factor of it but all they kept asking about is my coughing . This is a serious problem because it has made me so depressed to the point where I want to drop out of my first year off college and stay in my room. The doctor told me I have a Upper Respiratory Infection and Bronchitis.
Avatar n tn Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area. This tearing is not related to intercourse since my husband and I are unable to do that due to the pain it causes me. There is no real pain otherwise. I am getting some minor bleeding when I poop due to the tears in the anal area.
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
Avatar n tn november 25 was the last time i had sex 2 days after i start experiencing burring in testicles and some days later burring urination and yellow discharge i went to the doc 7 days later and she gave me 2 azithromycin 500g 5 days later i started experiencing slight muscle pain and joint pain i contacted a doctor and i was told that the signs looked like clamydia and i wasn't giving the right medication i was given 250 mg ceftriaxone and 2 azithromycin on the 13 of december by the 20 bumps came up
Avatar f tn For strep),and has been taking azithromycin since tuesday and prescribed bromfed Weds. (And tested neg. For flu). She's been having fever every evening since Sunday. (103°F Sun decreasing to 100°F tonight). Last night she began a barking cough, it got worse during the day, at times had trouble catching her breath, also vomited, one was very muscusy. Only relief is a hot bath or vaprizor. Not sure if the cough is from the meds working or should i be concern about numonuia or something else.
Avatar n tn However, if it is a drug reaction, the rash should have resolved after taking the drug. The rash may be caused by an irritation, insect bite or skin conditions. If it improves with limited sun or outside exposure, this is more likely due to irritation. Try to avoid scratching to prevent secondary infection. Always keep the area clean and dry. Take care and best regards.
Avatar m tn One of the three i might have so he gave me azithromycin and a injection of something i forgot the name in my buttocks area. After a week I still felt slight discharge but, then he put me on doxycylline hyclate. I went to a local practioner two days later and I complained of symptoms of constipation and the slight discharge. The doctor told me to get off of doxycylline hyclate and drink metamucil to cure the constipation. So, it seemed to be i was relieved.
Avatar m tn cut a tomato in half and rub onto skin, face, hands, feet etc, but don't go in the sun and be sure its a very red coloured tomatoe and not cheap from tesco's or any other supermarket. USE HERBAL SKIN DOCTOR - DARK MARKS AWAY to get rid of spots, freckles and BROWN PIGMENTATION MARKS. It works!! So try it!! Make sure you use it for atleast 6months. Here's a link for the herbal cream: Hope this helps!!
Avatar m tn I was given 4 tablets of Azithromycin to take in 1 go and meant to go back 2 weeks later. After a week I felt no improvement so went back earlier. Again swabs and urines showed polymorphs still present but -ve for Gon/Chly. I was given a weeks course of Doxycycline (i had to stay out of sun for this). I completed the course and no improvement so went back again and more swabs.
Avatar n tn I started having a white discharge in the morning and clear fluid leaking from my penis about a month ago. I went right away to the local emergency care and the doctor gave me a shot of rocephrin and a single pill does of azithromycin(not sure of spelling). After a week and no change in the symptoms I went original urine test came back all negative so I was referred to a urologist. The Doctore did another urine DNA test and put me on a one week doxycycline 100mg 2x a day.
Avatar n tn Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin. If the symptoms are still persistent, consult a dermatologist and get a proper clinical evaluation done. Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Avatar m tn I didn't have the rash that following morning, but I wore all black and the sun was high. Or the latter. I took my shirt off and my chest rubbed with my linen. So it could be a heat rash or allergic/contact dermatitis?
Avatar f tn am not writing as an hiv victim but I think I will be let's get straight to the point on the 9th of February I had unprotected sex stupid thing to do but the reason y I had unprotected sex is because no one in my family handed me condoms I have a gf we are together going 3 yrs soon and the first time we had unprotected sex and so it continued throughout unprotected sex for 2 yrs no symptoms she does like the condoms so therefore I got use without it also now on February 9th had sex with this gir
Avatar f tn I got an order from my doc, and then printed out the information from Quest, and gave it to the lab tech at the hospital. Most hospital labs use Quest so it's not a big deal for them to send it there. Here's a link to the test if it passes MH's filter: (Otherwise I'll put it in my journal)
Avatar n tn Doxy isn't completely gone from the system for at least 3-4 days after the last dose. Stay out of the sun as much as possible (or use a strong sunblock, spf 30 or higher) for the next week. Azithromycin (Zithromax) is no "stronger" than doxycycline, just a different antibiotic. It is chemically entirely different and does not cause photosensitivity. I'm not certain you needed STD treatment at all, but it will cause no harm if you go ahead and take it.
Avatar n tn I am experiencing similar situatio after enjoying years of acne free face. I have tried everything humanly possible but I guess once its severe acne one has to limit expectations. Anyway,i am currently on Tab Azithromycin and topical benzoyl peroxide switched occasionally with topical retinoid at night. I use sebamed clear face gel as moisturizer cause it's oil free and irritant free,the last and most important thing is i avoid sun like it's a plague.
