Clindamycin for men

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin for men


Avatar m tn Does anyone have experience with non-prescription antibiotic ointments for bacterial (staphylococcal) folliculitis? Do they work?
Avatar m tn Without trying to sound rude, I am not looking for what it is how how it manifests. That I have l learned. Just how or can I truly have a prayer of stopping progression and working to get skin and sunken areas back to some degree. I have seen this coming fro about three years but no doctor would believe me until tests now show it to be true. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn Doxycycline is another one they use for acne and it's much cheaper than the minocycline. I was given Spironolactone for acne as well as thinning hair and it works very well with virtually no side affects in my case. However, its use in women versus men might be something to talk to your doctor about. Men may have more side affects with it because it does affect testosterone. It does come with a nice benefit of helping keep blood pressure down because it is also used for that.
Avatar m tn It has limited side effects, according to studies, and even though it's used mostly for prostate problems in men, it's supposed to be able to help hormone imbalances in women, too.
Avatar n tn When it affects the beard area of men, it's called barber's itch. It is important for you to consult a dermatologist for proper treatment. Proper hygiene should be maintained. You may try an over-the-counter antifungal cream like 1% clotrimazole and antibacterial wash such as hexachlorophene. Topical antibiotics such as erythromycin or clindamycin may provide relief.
Avatar n tn the various kinds of bacteria seen under the microscope, are typical for BV but also can be seen in perfectly normal vaginal secretions. There is no test for BV in men, and there is no clear male counterpart. I don't know what test was done on you, but the result is meaningless. I hope your partner was tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia, because some cases of BV may be triggered by those STDs.
Avatar m tn Hi after 2 weeks of unprotected vaginal sex i was diagnosed with klebsiella pneumoniae uti. Is it an STD....can i get it through sex as it is uncommon for males to get urine infections.
Avatar m tn Is it too late and should I be worried I might have gotten syphillis and given it to my ex even after a negative test at 5 weeks? Clindamycin would not change your risk or your test results for syphilis. 2. Should I get tested again for Hepatitas C? I know its really not an STD but the girl was on her period and I had popped a pimple like bump that was on my penis 2 or 3 days before the exposure (bump was self inflicted). Could that possibly put me at risk for transmission for Hep C?
1436339 tn?1283705954 i've had these black heads in my arms and inner thigh since i was 9 years old , im now 29yrs old.. dermatologist diagnose it as ingrown hair similar to what men get on their face. throughout the years they seem to fade away but look like scars.5 yrs ago i notice they were growing under my breast.again doctors confirm them as sweat glands.
Avatar f tn So i went to another doctor and she gave me double dose of ceftriaxone injection and an oral medication of doxycycllin for a week. It went out for 3 days but then it just came back again. I applied for a job abroad expecting that i will fail my medical test. But it turned out that all test is normal and i got the job. So now im here in saudi and ive been living with this mystery for 4 years now. I am working in a clinic but i cant submit my self for check up because im single.
Avatar n tn Traditional treatments for itching don't seem to help very much or for very long, has seems to be the case with you. To be frank, I think you will have to consider looking into other explanations for chronic recurrent itch. These include stress-related factors and anxiety. I don't know of any relationship with hormones or their imbalance in this condition, which is really rather common.
Avatar n tn Gonorrhea can cause problems for men, but infertility isn't one of them. Have you tested positive for gonorrhea?? I keep asking you that, and you aren't answering me. I can't tell you what medication you need because I don't know what you have, and because meds are often called different things in different countries. If you haven't tested for gonorrhea, you don't know if you have that. Its possible the symptoms you had were from bacterial vaginosis and that's different than gonorrhea.
467493 tn?1229898839 for $10 you get a 1oz tube of cream to apply daily(maybe x2), and pills you take for 14-15 or 30 dayds(there's 2 diff packs, and also some for men!) i use it now, and my ob says it's fine, but if it's a prescription, he needs to know first! you're supposed to put cream on a *clean* face, but i wash, apply cream, and use "powder" for that time, rather than a liquid base under a's awesome!
Avatar m tn If you prefer to use a topical lotion your doctor can prescribe a topical antibiotic such as Clindamycin (Dalacin-T solution) or a synthetic retinoid such as Differin which is good for many kinds of acne including whiteheads and blackheads. If you are unable to get prescription medicines at present due to lack of health insurance etc, the most effective over the counter system is probably Freederm, use both the cleansing lotion and the treatment gel.
Avatar m tn i have done USG(KUB) and had done routine urine examination,urine culture,semen culture,prostatic fluid massage in 2004, and elisa for hiv(which was negative)in 2005 then urine flow cytometry. it all started in 2004 march..i had sex with my girl friend..then first time in my life i did an anal sex with my girlfriend...then i got symptoms of uti...i took tmp-smz without testing urine(routine or culture)....symptoms when ever i felt the urge to void i used to masterbate.
Avatar n tn it's interesting because many women note developing BV after having sex with new partners, yet it is not a STD, nor is there treatment for men.
Avatar n tn Can BV be passed on to men? Should I ask my boyfriend to go for a checkup? I would really appreciate your help.Im scared :( Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have been washing my face with only warm water for over a month and have yet to see another breakout. I guess my point is for you to try think of what may have caused the initial breakout after the birth of your son. If it is a vitamin or type of food you've been ingesting, try a week or two without it and see if you have any improvement. In the meantime, give your skin a break from all these antibiotics and creams because sometimes they can do more harm than good, no matter what they are.
Avatar n tn Have any of the herpes lesion culture tests come back yet? Oral clindamycin is an ok treatment for bv but not the best. At this point just keep following up with your gyn as needed. I'd return about a week after your period ends for repeat vaginal testing for yeast and bacteria too.
Avatar f tn I took it three different times the last time I broke out in hives. I have had a prescription for clindamycin, but I am a little afraid of the side effects that are associated with it.
Avatar f tn So many have it, or have it without knowing it, it seems ridiculous not to include it. Do women tend to have worse symptoms than men? Thanks for reading and/or suggestions. .
Avatar m tn Thanks for the quick reply Dr. Hook. How long would it take for the "chancre" to cure after starting doxy if that were what it was.. Also, my derm said he almost always sees syphilis on the penis. Is that correct? Do you have any statistics on false negative based on days on doxy? The physician I saw first, to me was skeptical as I think he was a PA and not up to speed on STDs.
6884018 tn?1385768642 As you have mentioned, diet, hygiene and stress are not the causative factors for acne but yes, definitely they are the aggravating factors for them. They are caused by a combination of several factors: hormones leading to excess oil secretion, faulty closing of the hair duct, and infection. Other than that, perioral dermatitis can be triggered by the make up cover as well. It may be that certain ingredients of cosmetics may act as the trigger.
Avatar n tn can this infection recur again without sexual contact? iam currently on clindamycin for an unrelated matter. will this antibotic take it away?
Avatar f tn I believe it will be a problem for us for a great deal of time. They do not test for this in men, because they tell men it does not affect them. I would suspect it would present like a mild yeast infection and/or some warm urine for them and would clear after abstaining from sex for a while and they would be satisfied it was gone. The cultures are probable to not be identical to females because of the different environment i.e. moist vs. dry. Things grow better in a moist environment.
Avatar n tn Antiperspirant helps treat and prevent the condition by reducing axillary hyperhidrosis. Topical antibiotic preparations such as clindamycin or erythromycin also are effective. "Drying" powders may assist treatment. ref:
Avatar n tn I immediately tested for Gonorreah/Clamidia (blood and urine) and before getting the results but being (stupidly) sure it was clamydia (the dangers web research), I took 1 gram powerd Zithromax which one of my old roommates left when she moved. That was stupid of course....and now I just got my results back and its not any of the three they tested for. That means before anything I have to go get more testing.
Avatar f tn That leaves the quinolones out..but clindamycin may be a second choice.Good for both soft tissue as well as bone infections. Did not know about not taking probiotics with steroids.Gonna look that one up.
Avatar m tn The new strain seems to have “spread rapidly” in gay populations in San Francisco and Boston, the researchers wrote, and “has the potential for rapid, nationwide dissemination” among gay men. The study was based on a review of medical records from outpatient clinics in San Francisco and Boston and nine medical centers in San Francisco. The Castro district in San Francisco has the highest number of gay residents in the country, according to the University of California, San Francisco.
209987 tn?1451939065 I know caffeine, spices, etc ( which I avoid like the plague ) makes it worse, but what can ease it? I've been peri-menopause for about 7 years now, and it's only getting worse. The anxiety has died down ( only because I now know what it is I'm going through ) but the flashes are getting worse...followed by extreme chills and sweating. I can't sleep ( even if my two y/o would let me sleep through the night lol ) and I drag my butt around all day.
