Doxycycline ear infection

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline ear infection


Avatar m tn that said, if you had chlamydia, you would have been treated at this time. Five days of doxycycline would probably have cured the infection and 1.5g of azithromycin of 50% more azithromycin than is required for chlamydial therapy. Wither way you would be cured. 1) Would 5 days of doxycycline and on day 6 the 1.5 g zithromax cure chlamydia if present? Yes 2) I used zithromax back in july for an ear infections. Would this build up resistance against chlamydia due to overuse of zithromax?

458072 tn?1291418786 Hello everyone. I have an ongoing sinus and ear infection. It is now trying to move into my lungs(bronchitis). I have had 2 rounds of Levaquin, an injection of Rocephin and dexamethazone and it is STILL not clearing up. I hated to take those antibiotics in the first place. They are always a LAST LAST resort for me. Probiotics have been taken for the issue these cause, but does anyone know of anything else I can try that will work.
Avatar m tn Last Friday I found an abscess and some swelling on the lower right side - the dentist prescribed DOXYCYCLINE for the infection - I was hesitant to take it because of my allergic reaction 10 years ago but my face and ear were starting to ache and I had pain in the base of my head and neck however, (the abscess disappeared the next day without the antibiotic from rinsing with salt water) but I was fearful that the infection could be spreading - so I took it against my better judgement.
Avatar m tn Sounds like an ear infection. See your doctor before you develop permanent hearing loss.
280418 tn?1306329510 However, there are forums where people claim it is ototoxic (ear toxic) and causes tinnitus and even hearing loss. I know that some classes of antibiotics are ototoxic, but I've not heard of doxy being that way. Does anyone notice tinnitus or hearing loss with their doxy or other antibiotic, or do you chalk it up as a lyme symptom? Very curious...
Avatar n tn He told me that I had an infection of my hair follicles and prescribed Doxycycline. I took it for 10 days and all but an area behind the lower part of my right ear went away. I went back to him in December - when I couldn't take the itching any more and he perscribed Doxycycline again. And it appeared to almost go away - but the very itchy bumps are back in full force again and just in that area. It is driving me crazy.
Avatar m tn a year ago and the fluid never left You had a middle ear infection, not an inner ear infection, which is totally different.
Avatar n tn he explained with a cut out section ear model that the infection is in the external ear and is a bone infection! he said he could see some granules developed inside. i was prescribed ciplox TZ H for 10 days (initially by a different doc). that didnt i went to this doc who has prescribed me Doxycycline Hyclate for 20 days. i started this doxycycline hyclate drug on june 19. and there is improvement 1st day itself. there was relatively lesser discharge today.
Avatar n tn I have been tolerating a bad ear infection for many months now. And believe it to have originated about over a year ago. At the time I was completely unaware since I cant see into my own ear to notice whether it was red even back then, but i certainly remember having lighter yet similiar symptoms as I do now. Alot of these symtoms seem to involve a throbbing sensation of the jaw and temple region as well as severe migraines from time to time.
Avatar f tn Hello, Any pimple like swelling near the ear could occur due to few basic possibilities namely a Pimple itself, infected ingrown hair follicle or sebaceous cyst, ear infection and parotid gland infection (parotitis). Pimple or sebaceous cyst may occur due to excess oil clogging in the skin pore.
Avatar f tn or just normal bacterial/viral infection? 2) Will the massage parlor's common cold caused infection as above? 3) Do I need to do any blood test for STD or HIV? 4) How long usually will take the medicine to resolve the swollen below abdomen? 5) Could it be herpes? 6) Will the UTI caused the pain at the neck? 7) Does the medicines have any side effect as I feel "different" at my kidneys? 8) If the medicine doesn't work, what does it means? The infection is viral infection?
Avatar m tn I developed this lump under my skin near my right ear/jawline. It has been present for approximately 3 months and has doubled in size and is now approximately the size of a quarter. It started during a shingles episode, although I did not have a shingles outbreak in this part of my body. However, it started as neck fullness in that area which developed into a lump along my jaw line area that has persistently gotten larger over the past 3 months.
Avatar n tn Two weeks after the encounter I was experiencing a burning sesation in my penis - but not when I urinated. The doctor treated me for NSU with 7 days of doxycycline. The burning persisted and the doctor treated me with 30 days of cipro. The burning finally stopped 10 days after I finished the cipro. It's been 3 months since the exposure and I've since gone back to my doctor to get tested for HIV and syphilis.
Avatar f tn I went to the emergency room, when they found the bronchitis after a chest x-ray, and prescribed Prednizone for the inflammation and Doxycycline Halcate for the infection. I couldn't finish the antibiotic, due to even worse of an upset stomach reaction, but continued on the prednizone, though I was starting to have neurological symptoms on that, albeit mildly (anxiety, paranoia, shaking, hallucinations, irritability).
Avatar n tn Started out with pain and ringing in the left ear, swollen gland behind it. Then moved to the right ear. Accompanied with a sinus infection and severe sinus pressure. Sinus infection has went away, glands are no longer swollen, still crunching and ringing in both ears. My doctor put me on a round a antibiotics and didn't help. ENT doctor said it was tinnitus, although I have no hearing loss. A few friends and my father in-law had this exact same thing as well.
Avatar n tn What do I need to do to get rid of an infection on my face that is accompanied by slight muscle swelling and pain? The area has been infected for two years. I'm a 55 yro female; previously unremarkable derm history. Feb. 2002-bumps appear in l. cheek,like ordinary acne. June 2002- hasn't gone away; over the counter acne meds didn't help. The area is red, swollen, hard and the size of a quarter. Pcp gives 4 sample cipro tablets and prescribes topical clindamycin.
Avatar n tn   It seems to me that this is acting more like an infection than asthma or allergies, and that allergens irritate what is inflamed from an infection.   It's as if I have a respiratory infection, but I can never get enough antibiotics or the right one to cure it. I only get enough to heal it partially. Yes, I've had a CT scan of my sinuses--normal.  And, a chest x-ray six years ago, and the allergist a couple of weeks ago thought that it was sufficient because it was clear then.
Avatar f tn I have also chronic infection in my left paranasal sinuses, but now my symptoms are not typical of sinus symptoms, preferly typical of ear infection. I have seen many ENT doctors, two dentists, two neurologists, a cardiologist and many other doctors. Temporomandibular and tooth disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, ear infections, a coronary artery disease have been excluded. Now there is only muscular dystonia taken into consideration as a possible cause. The left carotid sinus may be enlarged.
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 Within two days I was in excruciating pain, starting in my jaw and radiating back to my ear, temple and back of my head. My ear felt like it had an ice pick stuck in it. He prescribed an anbitiotic which I managed to take for 3 days before having a problem with it (my stomach felt like it was being burnt). But it did help the pain tremendously - and as soon as I stopped the antibiotic it came back, in force. 2 Vicadin barely cut the pain.
Avatar n tn The day after my course of antibiotics stopped, I noticed the sore throat/ear pain. What is going on? 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.
Avatar m tn Mycoplasma Infection is a nasty bacterial infection that can cause headaches, joint pain, fevers, dry couch, shortness of breath and a general feeling of the flu. If these symptoms don't resolve on there own then you need antibiotics like (Doxycycline, Cipro, Azithromycin or Biaxin).
280418 tn?1306329510 I have some pretty annoying tinnitus in my left ear. I had a couple of pains in it today but I've never had an ear infection in my life. I'm having floaters, vertigo, fatigue, headache, and just general down feeling due to this illness, I guess. I hope that this will pass. I can't stand the thought of it lasting very long. Very depressing. I'm used to being out, active, driving my car with the music on and just enjoying my weekends off work.
Avatar n tn Exact SAME thing. Pain started in left ear. Swore it was ear infection, ever doc who looks in my ear says its fine.. yada yada. Pain shooting down side of my neck, different areas different times.. not muscular.. nerves!!! Going to a new ENT tomorrow and I am going to beg. How did you ever resolve your problem???? ?/? The pain is getting worse, just like you said as my last Doc recommended trying sudafed.. thought I was getting better then I crashed worse than ever.
Avatar n tn pain/pressure in ears - no infection ear feels constantly on fire-no infection when bone of ear is pressed on - pain all thru neck behind eye - pressure and tight entire jaw - pain and swelling upon swallowing - feeling of choking pain in shoulder-some burning when placing finger slightly in ear and moving jaw-major cracking and popping of the jaw This is all on left side. Right side no symptoms. Maybe it is TMJ and the MRI is wrong. I don't know anymore. Anyone have any answers?
Avatar f tn i have had a infection in my lungs since mid-May. treated with doxycycline by end of june for 1 wk. started on avelox end of july for 1 wk. then given levaquin for a wk. by last wk doc said she didn't think was infection cause levaquin shoudl have killed anything, even though I was still having gobs of green phlegm coming down the back of my throat and out of my lungs. she sent me to the asthma and allergy clinic where i was tested for 27 diff allergies all negative for.
Avatar n tn In September the same symptoms started again, and another dentist said it was the tooth that I had root canal in 5 years ago had an infection and gave me penicillin, advising to perform the operation again. The pain subsided, but I did not follow the course of antibiotics properly. Three weeks later I went back to Bulgaria and saw two different dentists who both told me the route canal was perfect, and nothing else is visible on the X ray.
277836 tn?1359669774 Took the meds and I came back down with something else so he put me on a Zpack well 3rd day into it I find myself at the ER with a bad bad migrane and they tell me I have fluid in my ears and a bad ear infection along with swellen in my nose.. They put me on Doxycycline and give me a a shot for the swellen.. They also put me on Prednisone 40 mg for 5 days... I took that and when the course was over the swellen came back..
Avatar n tn They called and said I had a VERY bad yeast infection. This time I started feeling similar to the last time. By day 3 I was swollen and red again with mild itching and a white/clear stretchy discharge. I have been with a new partner since Nov. 2005 and these problems have started since then. I seem to be irritated down there almost always after we have sex. Do you think maybe it's his body chemistry that isn't mixing well with my "inside"?
