Metronidazole for fungus

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole for fungus


4358817 tn?1353349812 My skin has been freaking out for about 3 months-It started about the same time I started moving from Georgia to Texas. I assume that a large part has to due with stress and allergies but I have tried everything- From General Practitioners, Chinese Medicine, acupuncture and a physiatrist (who confirms I do have skin issues and am not delusional) - and my scalp still feels creepy crawly. In the sun my hair shines almost iridescently in some places but black in others.
Avatar n tn i have an intense spread of what appears to be white fungus accross my bottom gum/lip. a week ago i had a small ulcer and 2 days later this spread came about. i'm 21 and have never had this issue.i pull my bottom lip and it bleeds. ive been put on metronidazole as i went to a walk-in centre today but the woman wasnt sure as she wasnt a dental surgeon. i have an exam in a few days and hence cant get to a surgery.

Avatar f tn Two days later I started having really foul and heavy amounts of vaginal discharge. So I went to my doctor to be tested for STDs. She prescribed me 500 mg of Metronidazole to take twice daily for 7 days. She told me it was for Bacterial Vaginosis. The discharge disappeared and after a week of getting no call from my doctor about results of std testing, I called. The doctor never called me back. So a couple more weeks have past, I'm feeling fine, everything is okay I assumed.
Avatar m tn I have been sick for 3.5 years, then was on doxy for 4 months and felt good for a month and a half, then symptoms sarted again, feel horrible at the moment and restarted doxy 4 days ago. Im also taking cat's claw, will keep you guys posted.
Avatar n tn Metronidazole won't kill yeast. Its an antibiotic, not fungal.
Avatar n tn I treated for an STD back in SEPT.2007 (chlymidia) which i came up positive for and was treated right away, weeks later i have been having recurring yeast infections and i was finally told that i has BV. i just finished my medication today 3/19/08 (metronidazole), and im still having vaginal discharged. it went from a watery milky white (with no odor) discharge to a THICK white discharge (with no odor).
Avatar f tn no no antibiotics i went to my gynecologist an she told me to take metronidazole/flagyl for infection an afterward the sympthoms disappeared then came back i dont have pain or an frequent urination just a sour smell an bitter taste but before i took that antibiotics it was also sour tasting now it just very bitter with a sour or bitter smell an it gets stronger after sexual intercourse
Avatar f tn To date there is no known cure for herpes.
Avatar n tn After this happened I noticed he had many towels within his bedroom that he used to wipe his genital area due to profuse sweating and the towels had a fungus like or yeast like odor to them. I also noticed within his bedroom many containers of fungus cream for his genitals. I have mainly noticed the burning and itching on the right side of my labia and within my vagina. The left side of my vagina and labia appear to be fine.
Avatar m tn Given your situation, I would take metronidazole 500 mg. by mouth three times per day for ten days as well as the Cipro 500 mg. by mouth twice a day for ten days. Tetracycline 500 mg. four times per day for 10 days would be my choice over the Cipro. Your wife’s urinary tract infection is unrelated to your present problem. S.A.Liroff, M.D.
Avatar n tn Doctors usually prescribe a topical antibiotic, such as metronidazole, that is applied directly to the affected skin. For people with more severe cases, doctors often prescribe an oral (taken by mouth) antibiotic. Tetracycline, minocycline, erythromycin, and doxycycline are the most common antibiotics used to treat rosacea. Some people respond quickly, while others require long-term therapy.

Avatar f tn The doctor then did a pelvic exam and ruled out trich based on sight alone but I did test positive for BV and I was prescribed metronidazole. This cleared up the infection and I didn’t see that partner for a while. 2 weeks ago we met up again and had unprotected sex, but neither of us slept with anyone else in between. Almost immediately after, the symptoms returned and so I assumed it was BV again and went back to the dr.
4865450 tn?1361298133 I read about Metronidazole, but for the moment i will not take because everything is confusing. I have same sympthoms at vagina, anal area, throat and now at my eyes.
Avatar f tn Studies have shown that antibiotics (usually metronidazole or clindamycin) plus after that is done take probiotics once a week for 6 months and it may not recur. Without the probiotics there is often recurrence. You can buy probiotics with various live bacteria such as bifidobacteria, lactobacillus and so forth at about 10 billion copies. Places like Costco and so forth have them or online. Your doctor will need to examine you to be sure it is BV.
Avatar n tn But I used to put them in the seed tray with seeds.Didn't remove it for a day. I guess it could develop fungus. 3) It can be some thing to do with wild pigeons in the garden She is one of my first budgies .Due to poor knowledge about them I did make mistake. As soon as I notice her tail bobbing I change these conditions above. I have to tell you her behavior is not abnormal to me. She is just playful, active and lovely. Infact all other budgies seeks her attention.
Avatar n tn Cephalexin (Keflex) 500mg 1 tab 4 times a day for infections; Cetirizine (Zyrtec) 10mg 1 tab a day for a month for allergic reactions; Fluconazole (Diflucan) 100mg 1 tab immediately for Fungal infection; and Prednisone (Deltasone) 20 mg 1 tab a day for 3 days; which he wants me to use only if the others don't work due to the steroid nature. He also recommended Ammonium Lactate (Amlactin) 12% lotion.
Avatar f tn Do NOT use Vagisil if you suspect BV! Vagisil treats yeast infections. A yeast infection is an overgrowth of a fungus that can affect the skin (examples: Athlete’s Foot, nails (onychomycosis), mouth (thrush), digestive tract, esophagus, vagina (vulvovaginal candidiasis) and other parts of the body. Yeast infections occur most frequently in moist areas of the body. Although Candida albicans are the most frequent offenders, other types of yeasts (fungi) are known to cause infections.
Avatar m tn About a week in a half later I begin to feel a tingling feeling and slight pinching feeling at the opening of my penis. I also have intense itching in the pubic hair area. Over the past 3 years I have tested for HIV, HSV1, HSV2, chlamydia, gonno, syph, over 5 times. I also tested for trich as well and was negative. The trich test was done in March of 2015; three years later. During the first two years I tested for everything and was negative so I decide to continue having sex with my wife.
Avatar m tn I am an STD nurse-- it is safe and waht is prescribed for most penile fungal infections. The redness and irritation--without seeing it-- sounds like possible yeast or fungal infection of the skin. Athletes foot cream like lamisil is not specially formulated for feet it is specially formulated to kill fungus and works anywhere you put it except eyes and internally of course. But this is just a help board, you can always go to the clinic and see what help you can get there.
Avatar m tn I suffer from chronic inflammation at the shaft near glans for about 3 decades. I also have pain at suprapubic region and have to sleep prone with a ball underneath always. I also get pain and funny feeling at the tendon insertions esp at the lateral end in cubital fossae in both knees. Inflammation takes place even if I masterbated or used a condom. I thought there is Chr Prostatitis and took full course of antibiotics various kinds.
Avatar f tn Doctor then gave it to me to take twice a day for another 5 days and it held steady. I've now been taking metronidazole for 2 days which has improved it slightly but doesn't seem like it will get rid of it. It didn't have that immediate effect of the clarithromycin either. I'm convinced because the clarithromycin got rid of it that its a bacteria but why do the antibiotics stop working so quickly.
Avatar f tn So, I went on with her directions and took the terbinafine for 10 days and used the desonate for 14 days. The rash did go away for a little while but came back even before I had finished the full treatment of terbinafine (I did in fact go ahead and finish the full 10 days). I went back to the doctor for a follow up and she wanted to take a biopsy which may in fact leave a scar (which I really do not want). She also suggested that this may be a reaction from the use of the steroids.
Avatar n tn urethral smear and urinalysis performed again it came back negative, but still had pain in meatus and urethra intermittently. doc then gave me metronidazole for 1 week plus 1 tab of flucanozole. no relief of irritation. went back to doc's office and he gave me a prostate massage after taken a urine sample. the prostate massage (smear)came back negative. the doc can't seem to figure out what the problem is. i was also given bactrim 1 wk. on a 1-10 scale my pain is 3 on average.
Avatar f tn I am 20 years old and I have been having a skin problem for about a year now. I have what appears to be eczema on my face, right under my nose above my lip, under my lip, and on the bridge of my nose. I get it on my body occasionally as well, but my face is where it is the worst. It is red patches that are sometimes flaky as well and peel, itch, and burn. My skin is almost raw in these areas. I notice it getting worse after I consume a lot of sugar in particular.
Avatar m tn blastocystis hominis, also he examinate my tongue and he found that i have a candida fungus. this situation isn't irrelevant for me, it's been a cause of a great anxiety and fear. I know that i have not medical training, that's why i'm here, looking for other points of view, of people who know and who has other experiences...
Avatar f tn 03 for HSV2 IGG and I am prescribed medication (metronidazole, fluconazole) for yeast. In two days, I saw small red spot on the left side in the hairing area, so I went to see the doctor again. He prescribed me Valtrex based on my blood test and so I started to take it for two weeks before I read all about HSV2 here. My red spots never go away since May and my itching is always there. There are maybe a few days that I did not see it.
2109342 tn?1380912575 Separating them seems to work much least for now. Since this med is used for fungus on nails, I'm anxious to see if the black mold/fungus will disappear soon.
Avatar n tn Hi, I tested positive for Chlamydia on 26th Feb and took the prescribed treatment, Zithromax 250mg (4 tablets as a single dose), the same day. However, I now find there is noticeably stronger smell than before from my penis which is probably due to a clear discharge from my penis. The discharge seems more regular than before but I am not sure if this is as I am more self conscious about it. I also feel a little soreness in the lower part of the tract of my penis when I check it.
