Avatar n tn and felt fever-ish, weak So I went back to the dentist and did an x-ray but she can't find anything wrong with the tooth filled or any she gave me antibiotic-amoxicillin and took 200mg of Ibuprofen for pain. But after 3 days, I had a bad reaction to Amoxicillin. Went to a medical Doctor and I told her what happened, had an x-ray again and gave me a shot for inflammatory..and gave me a new antibiotic- azithromycin and a 600 mg ibuprofen every after 6 hours.
Avatar f tn I think I had an abscess for a while or at least an infection going on for a year shortly after my crown fell out a year or so ago. After my crown fell out I would get constant pressure and headaches on that side that not even excedrine would really take away. Several months later I experienced episodes where I felt like I was going crazy, very high anxiety, I felt scared and didn't know why, and felt like I was detached from myself. It's very hard to explain that feeling I felt...
Avatar n tn Azithromycin can you use it for a tooth abses?
Avatar n tn Is it from the antibiotics (Azithromycin) I've been taking? I've also been pretty stressed for the past 3 weeks about HIV.I've been told that I was in a No-Risk situation,but since,I've been having many oral problems even though my test came back negative.I've also had an abscessed tooth for about 2 months.
Avatar m tn My husband has had a swollen cheek for the past 3 days. He was taking Motrin 600 but the swelling is still there. Today is Easter Sunday, so he went to urgent care this morning, but they are closed. I gave him some anti-botics that I have (azithromycin). It looks like what I'm reading, that it may be an abscess? He will not be able to get in to see a dentist until later this week. How risky is that for him to wait a few days, while taking the antibiotic?
Avatar n tn Is it ok to take azithromycin while taking methadome 110mg. for opiate withdrawel abset in to tooth.
Avatar f tn Since these encounters i have taken antibiotics for different ailments. 1 zpack (azithromycin), and then a 10 day course of augmentin. Would either of these have taken care of any infection i may have had? I still have the swollen node in groin. I do have a chronically infected pilonidal abscess, which i guess could be causing the node swelling?
Avatar m tn I was prescribed Azithromycin. I took it for the five days in which it seemed to improve. It then came back to the normal pain. I told the doctor about a week after I stopped taking my meds at which time she re-prescribed the Azithromycin. I took it until yesterday - my last dosage. This morning it felt ok, but tonight it's back. A friend of mine whose always sick said I need to take Cipro if it's strep. He has it yearly and takes Cipro and it kills it first shot.
Avatar m tn what about this 3 month course of azithromycin for asthma?
551343 tn?1506834118 You can have allergy testing done, but a) that won't help you much for your current abscess situation as it may take a while to get the testing done an dresults back and b) I don't know if they can or do testing for medication allergies.
Avatar n tn Doctor has me on Azithromycin for 3 days now. The swelling and pain is still with me and I'm going crazy! What should I do? Thank you for your help!
Avatar n tn I went to an allergy doctor, and was tested for allergies, and nothing. For the last year and a half I've had pneumonia four times, the last two were double pneumonia. I had a CT scan done in October and they found vague cloudy patches on both of my lungs (scary). My pulmonologist doesn't think it's cancer, though they can't rule it our yet. I took Zithromax for three weeks in November when I had the double pneumonia, and the pre-existing cough went away, 100%.
Avatar n tn Shortly after finishing amox throat becomes sore again. Prescribed APO-AZITHROMYCIN, throat worsened. Prescribed PMS-CIPROFLOXACIN 500MG as well as some APO-BENZYDAMINE throat gargle. After 5 days of treatment my tonsils and uvula are severely swollen with a some white specs on the tonsils. The pain has intensified on my right side.
Avatar n tn About two months ago I tested positive for Chlamydah. I was treated with 1 dose of Azithromycin and one short for ghonoria. 3 weeks later I was still having burning sensation in my urethera and in my rectum. No discharge. Never Swallown testicles. Even at the time of discovery dischage was minimum. I visited an urologist who thought that the dose I received was not enough and gave me 10 days of doxicycline. Finished doxicycline, waited two weeks still symptoms exist.
611067 tn?1458595083 Anyway, more antibiotics (Vanmyacin - sp?) and Diflucan for yeast build up. I am free from the horrible diarrhea now, but my throat hurts and my glands in my neck on swollen and it just won't go away. It's been going on for so long now, and I'm getting frustrated about it. It hurts to swallow and the only thing that helps my throat pain is drinking soft drinks. Why won't the swollen glands and sore throat go away? Any ideas? My doctor is out of town until the beginning of February!
Avatar n tn Exactlyone month ago, I went to my doc for what I believed to be a sinus infection. I was correct, doc said it was severe and gave me avelox to treat it, I had a terrible severe allergic reaction to that med. I was then afraid to take any antibiotic, so I waited about a week or so to start the azithromycin..I wanted all the side effects from the avelox to clear up..which they hadnt but I bit the bullet so to speak..Took a weeks worth, sinus' felt better..
Avatar m tn Hi, Tammy2009 is right, you should use your rescue inhaler 10-15 minutes before you run. I run, bike and swim, and I find that for some reason, running seems to trigger my asthma more than biking and swimming. Back in the day, when I first started running, I was able to run about a third of a mile. I started with 3 mile runs. I'd run as far as I could, then I'd walk until I caught my breath, then I'd run again as far as I could, etc for the entire 3 miles.
Avatar m tn Strep is certainly possible, and the azithromycin is an appropriate antibiotic for this. If there is a pharyngeal abscess, this would need to be drained as antibiotics would not be effective. As for other causes, mononucleosis is certainly possible, and should be tested via blood tests. I would also consider an HIV test." . This sore throat that won't go away, coming on shortly after my "incident" leaves me with concern. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn He started out with bronchitis and was put on Azithromycin for 3 days. Once he was off he had high fever and still coughing. We took him back to his doctor and had x-rays taken. He then had pneumonia in his right lower lobe and was put on Cleocin for 10 days. Once he was off the Cleocin he started having fever again and still had his cough. Took him back to his doctor and had more x-rays. He had pneumonia again, but in his left lower lobe. He was put back on Cleocin.
Avatar n tn If you have had unprotected sex with aomeone of unknown status you need to test at 3 months past the last possible exposure for a reliable indication of your HIV status. Symptoms and lack of symptoms are an unreliable indicator of HIV status. The only way to know for sure is to test. Multiple skin diseases do not necessarily suggest an impaired immune system they are suggestive of ... multiple skin diseases. See a Dermatologist..
Avatar f tn After that, I feel pretty good for the rest of the day. No coughing. I feel pretty normal. I sleep fine, then wake up the next day and it starts over again. My sinuses are clear. No postnasal drip. I have tried numerous antibiotics (Azithromycin, Biaxin, Augmentin. Did a medrol dose pack. Went to a pulmonologist, and he did a lung function test (spirometry) which came back normal. I was also test for allergy's which came back negative.
Avatar f tn Saw a dentist and doctor recently. I've had all sorts of symptoms for 2 + months. I'm so scared that I hVe a brain abscess. Please help... Thank you...
Avatar n tn You have been treated for chlamydia already by the Azithromycin. Tests for other various STDs have all come back negative. The prostate would be a suspicious source of infection. You do not necessarily have to have burning during a prostate infection. The urologist should consider a prostatic massage and possible extrusion of prostatic fluid to demonstrate any presence of infection. The typical course of antibiotics would be from 2 weeks to several months for chronic prostatitis.
Avatar n tn he gave me 2 gram azithromycin (oral susspension) and a 30 day course of ofloxacin. after reading up on this site i decided to not screw around and set up an appointment with a urologist. (gp did not perform prostate exam, only went by symptoms) urologist performed a rectal and said he firmly believes it is not prostatitis. he said my prostate is normal, not tender and felt as if the entire feeling was in my head. he pushed in on my prostate to extract fluid but none came out.
Avatar m tn The most important thing here is that I was kind of in a hurry to get better because on the 17th I was flying out to Seoul, South Korea to begin my semester of study abroad at Yonsei University. So I took the amoxicillin along with ibuprofen for the pain and swelling for 3 days, with no results. My tonsil simply got larger and more painful to swallow. Sleeping was difficult. On the 16th, the day before my flight, I decided that I need to see another doctor.
Avatar n tn On April 18, I went to the local STD clinic and was checked for Chlamidya, Ghonorrea and Syphilis by urine test. It returned negative. They gave me some antifungal cream to treat the balanitis. By April 22 I had no noticeable symptoms. This lasted a few days. Then, by April 26, the "balanitis" returned and I treated with Lotrimin, which had worked many times before whenever I had balanitis.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. 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.
Avatar n tn I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks now and the little bumps on my penis head have gone away but now i have noticed an itchy bump on the side of my penis which is a bit bigger.. also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse.
