Ciprofloxacin ear infection

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin ear infection


Avatar n tn I've been taking Ciprofloxacin for about a week. On tuesday I went to the gym for the first time in a while, and for the past few days my shoulder muscles have been sore. I saw on the instructions with my medicine that there's a risk of tendonitis while taking Ciprofloxacin, is this something I should be worried about? I wouldn't have exercised that much if I had known. The soreness has been getting steadily better.
Avatar n tn Hi I've been prescribed a course of ciprofloxacin for an ear infection, however I notice that this medicine should not be taken alongside other medication containing iron or zinc. I've also been taking 400mcg of Tamsulosin regularly for Prostatisis. On checking the ingredients of my Tamsulosin Capsules I notice that it contains iron oxide and my question is will the combination be safe?
Avatar m tn Hi, I have had an ear infection for months and what the doctors are giving me doesn't seem to be helping. I was told I had an inner ear infection and I don't want to lose my hearing. What can I do. The sent me home with ciprofloxacin for 10 days and it didn't work. It may have started to work and I just needed more time idk. All I know is that I still have it and I want it fixed. If you can help me that would be wonderful.
Avatar f tn It is the only otic combination therapy that combines a steroid with a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, to reduce swelling and fight infection in both the middle and outer ear. It may not be available over the counter. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Hi, there is possibility of furuncle in external canal of ear, try ciprofloxacin ear drops along with anti inflammatory drugs and hot compression. It could be mastoiditis which is infection of the mastoid process, temporal bone of the skull that is behind the ear. Other possibilty is neuropathy, could be occipital neuralgia. For mastoiditis, generally antibiotics are prescribed and for neuropathy pain killers like gabapentin,amitryptline are given.

The pain was reduced and symptoms was moving away. But after the dosage period was over, after two days i am again feeling the pain and inflammation with same intensity in both of my ears. What drugs should i take???
Avatar m tn Amoxciline is used for Upper Respiratory infection such as ear infection and nose.. Amoxicline is good at that, but not the prostate.
Avatar m tn Faecalis (please don't confuse with E. Faecium) this is a serious bacterial infection. It is highly resistant to Antibiotics. Both can easily be transmitted to your girlfriend. If it is isolated to your genitalia, it can be passed during unprotected intercourse. Please realize that I can only give my opinion online, consult your physician (in your case ASAP) for all medical conditions. These can be sexually transmitted, they reside in the Gastrointestinal tract. I wish you the best of luck!
Avatar m tn to me the headaches feel like sinuses so im wondering if this could be an infection even though i been to the dr maybe i should go back and tell him that its tender there and coudl the infection be cuasing everything im feeling
Avatar m tn I'd been having a wax buildup in the ear with the perforated ear drum. It was causing pain and blockage. I went to a walk-in clinic, the doctor I saw said there was a lot of wax and wanted to clean it out. I mentioned the perforated ear drum but he looked inside and couldn't see a hole. I thought great, maybe it had healed up. Well, I was wrong. The doctor put drops of a solution in my ear while I was lying on my side and told me to wait 10 minutes.
Avatar n tn He has had 10 days of co-amoxiclav 625mg, it has cleared the infection from his right ear but now it has moved on to his left ear. He has now got ciprofloxacin 250mg for 7 days. I am a pharmacist myself so I am aware that they're exhausting alot of the obvious choices of antibiotics and nothing seems to be working. I can't stand seeing him in so much pain - does any one have any advice or come across such a persistent infection? Should be have the gromits removed again? Help!
Avatar n tn I have a ruptured eardrum and was prescribed Ciprodex OT (ciprofloxacin/dexamethas) by a specialist. I have have been using the drops for about 4 days and by the second or third day I noticed that their has been a lot of discharge from the ear, especially when I am sleeping at night. When I first ruptured my eardrum I had a slight discharge of a clear fluid and a little blood but it only lasted about a day then stopped.
Avatar n tn Pain like what you get when you have a bad middle ear infection, even my mastoid bone is throbbing, also feels as though my ear is full of water????. I may also be running a tempreture...time to go back to the hospital me thinks....has anyone had a similair experience??
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Avatar n tn ciprodex otc was given to me for an inner ear infection. I now have some sort of infection in my hair in my scalp in the lower part of my my hair line. it's oozing some sort of liquid mucus like substance that contains to dry up into a scab .
Avatar n tn Hi Deek, If you think, what you are having in your ear is fungal infection then you should stop the Ciprofloxacin ear drops first as it will worsen your condition. Take some antihistaminics (for eg. Cetrizine/Fexofenadine) and meanwhile you can try with some antifungal ear drops (like Candid ear drops) but my sincere advice is to consult an ENT surgeon, in case it happens to be a fungal infection then the debris will have to be cleaned.
10049887 tn?1407462984 but I did do the water test at home and it seems that my body has a lot of yeast, was tested for strep throat, mono, seen a dentist since they specialize in the mouth, was givin' a type of mouthwash to rinse my mouth with for a duration of ten days, no change, went to see my GP who said it looked like I had a viral infection and proscribed me 105ML PMS NYSTATIN and CIPROFLOXACIN HYDROCHLORIDE 500MG, no change, still have my white tongue, the next thing I'll be doing is seeing an oral surgeon and
Avatar m tn There was also a new symptom which was ear fullness every time i woke up in the morning. I after this got subscribed Ciprofloxacin again but which at this time didn't help at all. This is were i suspect there's a developed resistance. After that I got subscribed Erytromycine which also had no effect. A urine stick still shows infection. Do you have any suggestion on how to proceed? What antibiotic can help?
1621608 tn?1339523472 one more thing to ask that may be maggots ate his ear drum or his ruptured ear drum then there any problem to put your suggested Ear medications are: Baytril Otic, twice daily in ear; Otomax, twice daily in ear; or Mometamax once daily?
Avatar f tn In this time something I had done over my life, playing around with the ear, sticking things in the ear, not just a ear bud, I could insert my finger inside the ear with ease,( left good ear my little finger cannot go in, right ear near all the way, ring finger at half, both I would use and I would scratch away, pull and twist. Also another important tidbit of information is, in the 6months before giving up. All happened around the same time.
Avatar n tn I have just had a root canal on monday. I was in severe pain with #18 molar that had a deep filling performed last April. I also had severe ear pain. After the root canal was done and the pain medication wore off again I was in severe pain. My tounge started to swell on the side of the root canal.Upon waking my tounge had swollen enough to affect my speach. I went to see my endodontist on Tuesday. He examined me said facinating I've never seen this before and prescribed Amoxicillen.
Avatar m tn All STD,UTI-tests were negative but I had a CRP of 84 and there was a visible infection in the urine. Doctors therefore subscribed me Doxycycline for 1 week which made the symptoms go away but they came back worse directly after the treatment was over. After that I got a 10 day treatment of Ciprofloxacin and the symptoms went away and everything was fine. After 1.5 Months later similar symptoms returned but instead of testicle pain it felt that it was more located in the left testicular tube.

Avatar m tn Hi, It's good to hear from you with,especially with an answer to your brain explosion symptoms. If the ear infection has been present since November, it really needs to be evaluated by an ENT. I'm just curious why the MRI did not detect any ear related problem during that time. Nevertheless, it is good that there is already an answer to your problem. Take care and do keep us posted. Will be looking forward to your reply.
288415 tn?1231634102 With all this in mind, i believe strongly the itchy ear, crusty problem is YEAST INFECTION in the ear (but not for all cases). What the doctors say concern me not (i have had serveral okay ear checks since the problem began). Look, your health is in your own hands - take what the docs say with a grain of salt and backup their talk with your own research - you can be as "smart" as they are and you definately know your body better they do.
Avatar n tn The diagnosis of osteomyelitis is a severe one with definite symptoms. You might have a residual infection from the old rct with the silver points. I would have this diagnosis checked by an oral surgeon because the treatment is aggressive and immediate.
Avatar n tn About 3 months ago, I got a naval infection which also included a mysterious fleshy growth inside the belly button. My general care physician just froze it off and gave me local antibiotic for it. No problems since. Shortly thereafter, I noticed that upon waking up in the mornings, I would have a slightly weaker urine stream, accompanied by hesitancy. This still happens fairly regularly. For about the same length of time (about 2 months), I've had slightly flatter stools...
