Avatar f tn Well her blood work is ok. Metronidazole is usually prescribed for parasites, but I guess general diarrhea would also warrant this. So if you say she is also clear of parasites, it could be the meds. They are pretty harsh, and can rip up a cat's digestive tract, just like in humans. I would talk this over with your Vet and see if there isn't something else he could give , but I do think she needs to come off the present antibiotics, they are just a contributing factor to her diarrhea now.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. Urinary tract infections and kidney infections can sometimes cause blood in urine or haematuria. The symptoms that you mentioned clearly indicate a urinary tract infection, which you have been treated successfully. Urinary tract infections caused by staphylococci, E.coli and some other atypical organisms can cause haematuria.
Avatar n tn For several weeks I have been having problems with my urinary tract (male). I am a gay male and have only had contact with men. In early November, I had oral sex (receive) and mutual masterbation (penis' touching). About 2 weeks later, I was having general issues with what appeared to me to be prostatitis. I was having some burning, aching and a sticky secretion in my urethra (when I opened my urethra, I can see what appears to be pre-*** all the time (day and night) thin, not thick.
Avatar n tn Metronidazole (trichomoniasis and bacterial vaginosis) Levofloxacin (urinary tract infections) Wilprafen (chlamydia) Fluconazole (candidiasis/thrush) Rocephin (gonorrhea) Gentamicin (variety of bacterial infections) Voltaren (inflammation) Longidaza (inflammation) Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn However, persistently foamy urine can be a sign of protein in your urine (proteinuria), which requires further evaluation. Large amounts of protein in urine may indicate a serious kidney problem. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and retrograde ejaculation in men are 2 that come to mind. With your recent urinary symptoms a UTI is most likely. The possibility of a STD too cannot be ruled out. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn They took a swab and told me I didn't have an STD but probably a urinary tract infection.They prescribed methronidazole (2 tablets twice a day for a week). I also had my anus looked at by a butt doctor and they diagnosed a thrombosed hemroid (from sitting too long on the plane) and a rash (from spicy food). They proscribed a topical cream that appears to be helping. Its now the fourth day on the methronidazole and the burning has resurfaced after clearing up for the first few days.
Avatar m tn Green urine sometimes occurs during urinary tract infections caused by pseudomonas bacteria. Dark brown or cola-colored urine Brown urine can result from: Food. Eating large amounts of fava beans, rhubarb or aloe can cause dark brown urine. Medications. A number of drugs can darken urine, including the antimalarial drugs chloroquine and primaquine, the antibiotics metronidazole (Flagyl) and nitrofurantoin, laxatives containing cascara or senna, and methocarbamol — a muscle relaxant.
Avatar m tn It can be due to many reasons which can be physiological or disease-related, and include excessive intake of liquids, diuretic substances (including tea, caffeine, alcohol, certain drugs), anxiety, exposure to cold, diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus (central or nephrogenic), urinary tract infections or obstruction, etc to name a few more common ones.
Avatar f tn Factors that can cause urinary blood, known medically as hematuria, range from strenuous exercise, urinary tract infections and an enlarged prostate to kidney or bladder stones, kidney disease, and, occasionally, kidney cancer or bladder cancer. * Foods. Beets, blackberries and mom's rhubarb pie can turn urine red or pink. * Medications. Certain laxatives — Ex-lax is an example — can cause red urine.
Avatar n tn Adding citrus fruits and juices to diet can also wash out any existing infection as it acidifies the urine and helps in flushing the bacteria out of the urinary tract. Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
Avatar n tn Did anyone do a urine test to look for red blood cells or bacteria specific to a urinary tract infection? You should let your doctor know what happened.
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 m tn and she said it was an infection that got into her kidneys. They gave her metronidazole which is used for trich but not kidney infections that I know of. Is there a reason they would prescribe this medication for an infection of the kidneys or am I wrong for being suspicious. We don't have sex for months and she is always out and coming home late.
Avatar f tn I only have access to oral antibiotics so I am thinking of taking levofloxacin 500 mg for 14 days with metronidazole 500 mg twice daily for 14 days. Is this a better alternative to one dose of 400 mg of cefixime with metronidazole?
Avatar f tn Doctor's opinions too pleaseee About 2 months ago I used a douche and later that week went in to the doctor because I had both a urinary tract infection and a yeast infection. She gave me treatment and it went away. About 2 or 3 weeks later I started to have those symptoms again so I went to her and she took a culture test and gave me diflucan again if it was yeast and told me if the symptoms returned after a few days to use the metronidazole vaginal gel she also prescribed.
Avatar n tn Mycoplasma and ureaplasma are normal bacteria in the urinary tract. Although they can be shared between sex partners and some strains of Ureaplasma may cause nongonococcal urethritis (I stress "may"; the association is unproved), there really is no point in testing for them. Most experts consider it a waste of money and time to test for them, and we never do so in my STD clinic. In summary, from an STD standpoint, you surely are in the clear.
Avatar m tn Pressure I know the stinging, but pressure or the urge to always go can be a urinary tract infection. Also next time ask for them to get an adequate sample of the discharge too. Its clear which sounds good...also is there any blisters or lesions on your penis?? red or warts? Good luck and breathe...
Avatar f tn I have also been treated for a yeast infection and ive been treated for bacterial and fungal infections also. The redness isnt extreme as balanitis pictures show on google. I have sent in clean urine sample where i could only digest water for 3 hours then after the 3 hours peed in a container for them to examinate and im waiting on those results. And after urination or sex is when the penis tip is inflamed the most?
Avatar n tn I am in china at that time, so i went to see the doctor and the doctor said I got epididymitis and gave me a zithromax 250mg for first day, then a month for metronidazole 200mg, Minocycline 50mg, Lysozyme 60mg. In mid Jan, I came back to US, I still feel burning on both side of testicles, so i go to the city clinic to check. They give me two more weeks doxycycline 100 mg. And all STD test come out negative. The doctor there said I am clear. But I still feel some burning on my testicle.
Avatar n tn It's it's brown as opposed to dark yellow, could be blood in urine. from urinary infections, etc, See your doctor and get your urine analyzed for a proper diagnosis.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, if there are PMNs present you should be tested further for other pathogens, for a non-STI urinary tract infection, or for prostate infection. You have now been treated with treatment which should be highly effective for chlamydia, Mycoplasma genitalium, and trichomonas. Had these been present , you should have been successfully treated. I hope these suggestions are helpful.
Avatar f tn Prosatitis is a different condition which can mimic NGU in symptoms. The same is true for urinary tract infections which are rare in men but do occur. It is difficult for me to endorse your plans to be un-truthful to your wife. I'm sure you understand.
Avatar m tn The culture for the std's doesn't come back clear enough to see if its negative or positive, so I couldn't see my primary doctor again because she wasn't available, so she sends me to someone else and I have another test done checking for urinary tract infection gonorrhea, and chlamydia and everything comes back negative I go to my gyno, she examines me and says its probably yeast or bacterial infection.
Avatar n tn My medical history includes nothing but history of urinary tract infection, discomfort urinating, like scratchy feeling inside my bladder whenever I eat meat/poultry .. My urine turns cloudy whenever I eat meat/chickens... and because of that I do not eat meats...However, a week prior to developing the symptom, I did eat "rare" steak sold in the food market along with chicken and some other bread puddings and noodles that I thought was spoiled a little but ..
Avatar n tn I highly recommend the book called The Yeast Connection Handbook by William G. Crook, M.D. I read it looking for a way to fight chronic yeast infections, but found a mountain of information that changed my life. I am not a doctor, and I can't guarantee that doing these things will be an absolute cure for you, but thousands of women report good results after conventional antibiotics have failed them for years. After years of embarrassment and depression, I finally got my life back!
Avatar n tn That's exactly why there is a long history of recommending dairy products, especially yogurt, either by mouth or in the vagina, for vaginal infections. (Lacto is Latin for milk, and lactobacillus was first identified in associate with milk and other dairy products.) Problem is, the types of lactobacillus in dairy products are not the same as those in the vagina, and yogurt or other dairy products just don't work; they die rapidly in the vagina and do no good.
Avatar n tn The combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria, including infections of the ears, lungs, sinus, skin, and urinary tract. Amoxicillin is in a class of medications called penicillin-like antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Clavulanic acid is in a class of medications called beta-lactamase inhibitors. It works by preventing bacteria from destroying amoxicillin.
