Doxycycline and strep throat

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline and strep throat


Cat Will Doxycycline Hyclate help my sore throat? My doctor prescribed it for me for a sinus infection, and I mentioned to her that my throat also hurt. But after researching this medication, it specifies upper respiratory infections, but doesn't just say sore throat.
Avatar m tn I was given Doxycycline. The discharge has pretty much cleared up, but the sore throat is quite a bit worse. Today I noticed small white patches at the back of my throat. I'm concerned about my throat symptoms, which are quite painful. Could they be due to an STD?
Avatar f tn I never know I can get STD thru oral,wasn't educated as much, after tat happened to him around the same time I started to get sick again and found out I had acute pharyngitis and while I was the I had std test and request a throat swab ,still waiting to hear back, they gave me 4tablets of azithromycin 250mg for being exposed and amoxicillin for my pharyngitis. Since the std is all new to me I've been w one person for the past 7years he's cheated.
Avatar m tn About 2 days after oral sex she went to Dr. with a sore throat. I looked at throat and it was 2 red bumps with white center. Dr. said it looked wierd to her and prescribed 10 days of 500 mg of Leviquin. Dr. told her to see an ENT 3 days later. ENT said it was not cancer, could see red bumps but not white spots and likely a common throat infection. He took a swab of her throat. I then went to get tested and came back positive for Gonorrhoeae, negative for Chlamydia.
Avatar f tn Back in May my left cheek hurt for a few minutes and then swelled up, and stayed swollen for days. I was told by an urgent care doc it was probably a virus, and I did get a bad sore throat & tonsil which were very swollen and red. Also had fatigue, muscle aches, slight fever of 99.0 to 99.6 and earaches. After a month I was still sick, so my regular GP gave me a strep test, blood work and UA, all came back fine.
Avatar n tn This time it didn't go away and so I saw my ob/gyn. She took a culture and found strep B, which has nothing to do with Strep A that creates strep throat. She said she could give me antibiotics to make it go away but then I would get a yeast infeciton from the antibiotics and then we'd have to use another cream etc. She said just to let it ride it's course. Now it's been three and ahalf weeks and it's better but not all healed.
Avatar n tn The bronchial infection was from the flu in early January and Amoxicillan wouldn't help also had strep throat with it and had my tonsils out 3 years ago. I forgot to tell the doctor that Amoxicillan doesn't work on me. I ended up running that course and then went back to the doctor 2 weeks ago coughing up green sputum and he said it was bronchial - my throat also hurt same as now and he put me on Doxycycline.
Avatar f tn He had a throat culture, and susceptibility testing, and it was shown to be susceptible to Azithromycin, and Clindamycin, as well as some others in my original post. I actually don't know where he got it. He had gone to a hospital just because he felt so bad from his initial illness.. I don't know if he already had it at that point. He said they did no invasive tests or procedures there.
Avatar n tn It was a private testing center If it is not related to STD Strep throat and mono . is there any other virus which causes these symptoms? will these symptoms stay for ever? The sex worker was applying some lubrication to her vagina does that cause any problems? I feel lil better in the morning whay?
Avatar n tn Like another poster, I feel one in my throat right now but it seems impossible to reach. I went to an ENT, for strep throat, and when I told him about this, he brushed it off, and pretty much said it goes away, If anyone is in the dc/md/va (particularly Virginia) area, please let me know if you know a doctor thats listens and cares what you are actually talking about.
Avatar f tn For mono, it showed that I have antibody, but its not active now. Sed rate was 3mm/hour, and blood count results were normal. I was also tested for strep throat, yeast infection, bacterial infection (on vaginal area) and it was all negative. I am currently taking antibiotics (doxycycline), but the symptom is getting worse. Could anyone help me determine what is causing all this? Thank you.
Avatar m tn As for your sore throat, fever, etc, ARS is a much less common cause of such symptoms than garden variety upper respiratory infections -- viral, strep throat, etc. And ARS doesn't cause runny nose, and 6 weeks is too long for onset of ARS symptoms; 10-20 days is typical. Neither the antibiotic treatment for gonorrhea nor the amoxicillin makes any difference one way or the other.
Avatar n tn I should have had my gyno do a throat culture for strep but she didn't and I was already on antibiotics when all this started anyway (Doxicycline). So.....should I wait for my herpes results or see someone now about this sore throat? Is it dangerous to wait a month before seeing someone about a sore throat?
Avatar f tn We went to different doctors and we were both treated differently. My doctor gave me doxycycline but his doctor gave him amoxicillian. My question is does amoxicillian actually treat chlamydia because only time i was prescribed that was for strep throat.
Avatar n tn Why is this happening and what should I do.. I know this is not strep it cancer??
Avatar f tn My mouth was extremely dry and irritated and white tongue and white near my tonsils. on 12/10/13 i returned to the ER and he prescribed Doxycycline Hyclate MG and Clotrinazole Troche 10 MG. my head ache, fatigue is gone. Now i have painful tiny clear blisters near my tonsils. I also have white on the back sides of my mouth and white tongue. The medication is gradually helping but not as fast as i wish. i feel something is stuck on my throat. Can you tell me what is occurring?
Avatar n tn Needless to say I went immediately to a walk-in clinic. I got tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia (only tests they had available) and was given 1 gram of Zithromax along with the single dosage of levofloxacin (Levaquin brand). The treatment started on Oct 27th. I received the results on Oct 31th and I tested positive for chlamydia.
Avatar m tn The following Wednesday (10/6), back in home, I went to a walk-in clinic, they ran tests for a number of things -- strep, pneumonia, mono, etc -- and put me on a Z-pack. All tests came back negative and the mono test came back staying that I had mono in the past. All blood work normal. The following night, I suddenly felt much better, amazingly. I continued to feel pretty good through that weekend (my wedding weekend, thankfully!). And then we drove to NY state for our honeymoon.
Avatar m tn None of these women have throat discomfort and the ones that had strep had it three weeks to a month or so ago. Wouldn't they have a foul smell and/or throat pain from their throat? 5. How common is the clap and in what social groups is it typically found? That's it I swear! THANK YOU DOC!
Avatar m tn She was an honors student with many friends and her life has been turned upside-down. Morphine and toradal have been the only medicines which have given her relief. She has had two lumbar punctures, one CT, 2 MRI's and recently a colonoscopy and endoscopy for what appear to be the beginning of ulcers. The first mri was normal but the 2nd showed evidence of lesions in the white front matter which indicate the possibility of a migaine, ADEM, Lyme's, among other conditions.
Avatar m tn I complained of tingling in the tip of my urethra one year ago, i went to the dr got tested for the usual stds and all were negative and i was referred to the urologist and he stuck is finger up my but and said i had high PSA for prostitis, given cipro and most but not all symptoms went away.
Avatar m tn However, I am currently taking Amoxicillin for strep throat. I told the clinic about the Amoxicillin and they told me to finish the Amoxicillin and then start taking the Doxycline. My question is, will taking the Doxycline right after I finish the Amoxicillin somehow lower the efficacy of the Doxycline, or should the Doxycline still be effective at knocking out the Chlamydia?
Avatar f tn The epididymitis started one day after being there and my testicle swelled way up that’s why l went to the doc and he prescribed doxycycline but all these symptoms of come and go during all this
Avatar m tn The throat pain was not agonizing, and rather irritating. If strep were an 8-9/10, this was a 4-5/10. I went to an urgent care on 12/23, but didn't disclose the encounter. They did a strep swab, which was negative. The doctor gave me Doxycycline 100mg 2x/day for 10 days. Taking the Doxy I noticed my symptoms improved, however after a while my throat symptoms were not getting much better and seemed to stagnate. On 1/2 I saw my primary doctor and told her about the encounter.
Avatar m tn 5 days later I went to the clinic who gave me 2 shots in my butt, and doxycycline and some durogen Forte and some mouth wash. Currently the white spots are gone, and I feel fine. I have no symptoms of any kind or marks on my genitalia. Strep tests came back negative and doctor thought that I had acute tonsilitis, possibly due to gonoccoal exposure. I have 2 days left of anti-b's. I will finish them, but I wonder what other followups I should do with my local doctor?
Avatar n tn didn't bother me much until the last few years *placed IUD after 2nd child (may 2004) and took it out (aug 2006) due to recurrent Group B strep problems *took blood test for HSV 1 and 2. Results came back positive for both,but with a result for 2 that could be false. * had culture done on cut (it was negative) *did have an overgrowth of bacteria when I got the herpes culture currently treating the bacteria with Clindamax (gosh, I hate this stuff!!
Avatar f tn Thus, what you most likely have is a viral sore throat or at worst, strep throat. If it is strep throat and it could well be you need treatment. Thus I would suggest that if it si not clearly viral and has lasted more than a day or two, you get checked but that you not worry about gonorrhea. Based on what I've just said, it also follows that I can assure you that your GF is not at risk, hope this helps.
Avatar n tn For the past year, I have been experiencing burning and stinging in my vulva (which is NOT made worse by peeing), which comes and goes but can last for over a month and is extremely uncomfortable. The area looks normal, and there is no unusual discharge. The last time I had these symptoms was in March - they came on suddenly with a stinging sensation, and lasted for 6 weeks.
Avatar f tn The medication made my mouth extremely dry and irritated and white tongue and white near my tonsils. on 12/10/13 i returned to the ER and he prescribed Doxycycline Hyclate MG and Clotrinazole Troche 10 MG. my head ache, fatigue is gone. Now i have painful tiny clear blisters near my tonsils. I also have white on the back sides of my mouth and white tongue. The medication is gradually helping. Can you tell me what is occurring? Can This be an indication of something worse occurring?
