Avatar f tn Will ciprofloxacin work for an infected tooth?
Avatar n tn After the removal I notice drainage from where the infected tooth was. When i went back for my follow up the dentist said I had to just let it do its thing. Well 4 weeks later I went to my doctor who had put me on ciprofloxacin 500mg to get rid of the infection. I have one more day of this medicine and the infection is not completely gone. I have discomfort in my gums and the drainage only happens if i touch around my nose or close to gum and jaw line. What should I do now?
Avatar f tn What antibiotic is better to take for a tooth infection/ absess tooth Ciprofloxacin or Bactrim?
173975 tn?1216261375 ) I haven't had a bladder infection in 20 years! Why now?
Avatar m tn If it is a urinary tract infection it probably doesn't matter to wait but it may be uncomfortable for you for a few days so that is my opinion on it. If you have a fever you may be getting the dizziness and tiredness from that and/or fighting off the infection and/or from the antibiotics. Some species of E. coli and E. faecalis can be resistant too but usually they can find antibiotics to treat both of these at this point.
Avatar m tn NASAL ODOR: I FOUND A CURE! at least for me!!!!! Sorry for the wrong english, because I'm from Brazil and do not speak much english. After six months looking for several doctors and trying everything I could heal myself taking ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 20 days and I used an antibacterial ointment in the nostrils. Remembering that you can not take the medicine with dairy products for at least 2 hours. Ideally, everything should be totally excluded from milk during these 20 days.
Avatar f tn I did my research online this seems to be a gum infection and/or abscess of the tooth and very painful for the cat. I've never grabbed this cat, nor will it let me take it somewhere, it moves tries to escape doesn't like to be grabbed. Please tell me if there is something i could take, any antibiotic or pain killer or anti inflammation, anything. Unfortunately i have not much knowledge of medicine.
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
Avatar m tn First I experienced slow onset of pain in my right testicle that was ultrasound tested and turned out to be orchitis. I took Ciprofloxacin 500 mg 2x day for about a week and that went away. 2 days later the left side started hurting, and I could feel a lump above the testicle. I saw another Dr. and he did a urine test which turned up no UTI and said I had epidymitis and gave me Levofloxacin to go along with Doxycicline that an American Dr. said might help over the phone.
Avatar n tn I had the tooth crowned about 6 months after the root canal, and in the process developed an infection that sits on my upper gum. My dentist put me through three rounds of antibiotics, popped the abcess three times now (after removing the crown, opening the nerve canal, popping it and injecting antibiotics into the area). This time, I'm on 250 mg x 2 of ciprofloxacin for 5 days (I was on clindamycin 150 mg x 3 previously all three times for 10 days with only mild results).
Avatar n tn i experienced a very painful toothache one day.. i cant bear it so i tried to scan for a pain reliever and an antibiotic. i only found the ciprofloxacin which is prescribed to me when i diagnosed with lower respiratory tract infection.. due to my wants to elliminate the pain, i prescribed my self taking the 500mg ciprofloxacin 3x a day... is there any bad thing that will happen to me? what i have done is good or detrimental to my health?
Avatar n tn In 2005 I was told I had silver points (post) and they were leaking and needed to be removed. I took the x-ray of the took to my old stomping grounds to let my "old" dentist remove the silver tips. He looked at the x-ray and said they were not leaking. His analagy was don't fix something that is not broke. He said the silver tips were not leaking. Is the standard of care to remove silver tips regardless? Beliving in his recommendation he did not remove them.
Avatar n tn What can I do as antibiotics itself induce infection in me as in case of tooth extraction earlier. Can IC make it harder to go away ? . Can recurrent UTI's make the urogenital muscles/systems very weak as I am getting incontinence after all this.
Avatar m tn I noticed this white tongue because one moning when I woke up I had vey dry mouth so I went to check it in the mirror. Later on I started to have 37.2 degree temperature for 6 days (it was coming back to normal at some parts of the day) Here is the story On the 24th of december I went to the dentist to have a root canal treatment on one of my tooth and other work was done on my teeth, the dentist prescribed me Dalacin C 300mg for a week in order to avoid any infections.
Avatar n tn Also, and on the flip side, you said you don't have a fever, which is also unusual for this kind of infection. I guess, though, that the antibiotics could have helped with the systemic infection, and just weren't effective on your symptoms. Who knows? I'm anxious to hear your findings, so please let me know.
Avatar m tn You may have a problem that looks like a sinus infection, but is something else. The medical model works for most people, and if you have a severe sinus infection, it could spread to other parts of your head or body, and it would be a good idea to be on antibiotics. Part I explains the Flip-Turn Sinus Flush®, Part II tells you why it works, Part III tells you how to prevent sinus problems. Good luck, and breathe free! INTRODUCTION Antibiotics often do not work for chronic sinusitis.
5264083 tn?1404669334 I was on Amoxil for 7 days for a throat infection and my next period was late for four day. When it finally came it was very scanty.
Avatar m tn The other symptoms to look out for in a urinary infection, is cloudy, smelly, or dark urine. Sometimes when the urine is dark this is an indication that the urine is concentrated meaning that you are not drinking enough water. Cloudy urine can have leucocytes, protein or blood (not detected by eye) in it, which usually is a good indicator of an infecition. Sometimes your urine may be a different colour from either certain foods you have eaten (like beetroot) or from medicaitons.
Avatar m tn I had to take penicillin for a tooth extraction along with zanax before my dental appointment. I noticed almost no PATM reactions at work while taking the pennicillin and zanax. I think this may be related to the nervous system because the without the zanax, I had bad reactions at work. Has anyone tried zanax or an anti-depressant? I hate to taking meds. I never take anything and eat and extremely healthy diet, exercise ect. but Im going to lose my job if I don't do something.
Avatar f tn A Mexican doctor said I have colitis, a kidney infection, monilia, an ear infection, and a viral infection. He suggested Lidamidine, Ciprofloxacin, Itraconazole, Cipro ear drops, and Acyclovir. US doctors usually have no training in parasitology, and unless you have AIDS they don't know about viruses either. I think we need to seek medical advice elsewhere.
288415 tn?1231634102 ive had a pretty serious ear infection for over a year now. i had the never ending itchy cycle.. infection, itch, scratch, reinfect etc etc. i would have so much fluid in my ear that id go deaf for days at a time. i tried anti-biotics but it didnt work. i tried vinegar.. didnt work, rubbing alcohal.. didnt work, hydrogen peroxide.. didnt work, neosporin.. didint work, i even used tough actin tinactin.. didnt work. needless to say i was so desperate i pretty much tried everything possible.
Avatar n tn I've been dealing with this same problem, which all started after a dentist prescribed me the antibiotic Clindamycin for a tooth, for over 2 months now (since June 8, 2010). I've only had a few days in these months (usually when my stress levels were low) where I did not have soft stools. I have the bloated pressure in my abdomen, which is relatively constant. Sometimes I have gas, which I think is good because it seems to alleviate the pressure temporarily.
Avatar n tn In February of this year I got a CT scan and the ENT doctor said I have a severe deviated septum with chronic sinusitis. I was treated for a sinus infection and that was it. I still felt bad so I went to a neurologist. He wrote it off as a vestibular problem. I did vestibular therapy for 2 months with almost no relief. In May when allergy season started, everything got worse. I have had nonstop sinus pressure/pain, headache, dizziness, major eye strain, my face is sore, my teeth are sore.
Avatar m tn I'm kind of expecting my white blood cell count to be a bit high due to the bacterial infection. I'm taking an antibiotic for it now for 7 days, so I will also let you know how that goes next weekend. If I can get rid of this white stuff on my tongue, that's one less symptom I need not worry about. By the way, I stopped smoking cold turkey today.
Avatar n tn /08 for a infection. A week later i have another infection on right side of my body. Can someone tell if this a allergy to titanum.
Avatar n tn I have been smelling exhaust fumes where none exist for about 2 weeks now. I can be in the shower or laying in bed and the smell won't go away, it smells like i'm in an enclosed garage with a gas powered vehicle running. Is this common?, I have never had any allergies.
Avatar n tn March 4th so we will see. I am posting my updates since I think it is important for other people looking for some sort of answers to see what they may end up going through.
