Metronidazole ointment

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole ointment


Avatar f tn Hi, probably it is because of development of anal fissure, although surgical treatment is done for this condition but symptomatic relief can be obtained with applying lignocaine jelly, for softening stool take some stool softeners along with antibiotic like ciprofloxacin and metronidazole. Other new treatment option is application of NTG ointment.
Avatar m tn While I've been waiting to get back into the proctologist, I went to see a GP, who prescribed metronidazole. After 2 days of metronidazole (500mg 3xday), all of my lymph nodes (particularly my groin) are swollen, I've developed a rash across my torso (no itching), and I feel like feverish/sick The metronidazole has helped a little with the itching and swelling around my anus, but it is still definately present.
Avatar n tn I have also noticed a few white fluid filled pockets in the rash occasionally. Originally I had tried an otc antibiotic ointment with no luck, then moved on to a cortizone ointment with no luck. A doctor friend gave me a sample of betamethazone to try and it seems to be helping slowly over about 5 weeks, but it seems to have stopped progressively getting better. Doesn't seem like its quite enough to make it completely disappear. Any suggestions as to what this is and how to treat it? Thanks!
Avatar m tn Her prescribed Cipro, 500 mg 2 x day for 10 days, and a Detreomycin 2% ointment to apply to the head of my penis. The symptomes subsided after about 3 days, and they appeared to go away. Unfortunately, the did come back, in about 2 weeks after the end of the treatmen,t again. And my question 1 is: I read that Cipro's spectrum does not encompas treatmetn of Trichomonas Vaginalis (it is not an effective drug against it); why would an experienced doctor prescribe this drug then?
Avatar n tn Hello, I have just been diagnosised with a steroid induced rosacea after 4 months use of Diprosone (I am French, I am not sure that medical preparations are called the same in the US) I totally stopped to apply Diprosone 4 days ago and started a Rozex ointment (metronidazole) today. I would like to know how long it will take for my skin to get back to normal. I also noticed that you recommand Tacrolimus ointment in that case. Do you think metronidazole is a good treatment as well?
Avatar n tn I went to several different doctors and they all told me I have Peri oral Dermatitis. I was prescribed Metronidazole at first and with no luck. The dryness slowly got worse and the red spots were not going away. I used Phisioderm to wash my wash my face and the dryness disappeared in a few days but then came back just as quick. After seeing a dermatologist he prescribed me Doxycycline for 1 month and an ointment made of Clindamycin 2%, HC 1% in 80% h20 and 20% isopropanol.
Avatar n tn I had a back lower right molar removed. The dentist had to freeze me over 10 times. The extraction went OK but a day & 1/2 after the extraction - my lower right and a bit above was very sore then my right cheek started to swell up the size of a golf ball. Went back to the dentist 5 days later - he said you have an infection - prescribed antibiotics - 2 kinds Amoxil & Metronidazole - now today the swelling has reduced 2 days later. What can I eat? and is the whole thing normal?
Avatar f tn I had bv at about 20 weeks and doctor prescribed Mr metronidazole gel to be inserted vaginally for a week. I didn't put the applicator all the way in. Only halfway like he said. I've had that and about 3 yeast infections and I'm about 26 weeks and baby is just fine and hoping he stays that way. But I'm always sure to catch it early. As soon as of starts feeling the slightest bit funny down there, off to the doctor I go!
Avatar n tn It is very annoying, noticeable, and I can feel it constantly - it feels like a disturbed dryness although I keep it moist with ointment (Centany, mupirocin ointment). I have attached 2 pictures and two close ups of it below. There is a small part on the side of the nose that may contain a little bit of puss, but I can't tell for sure. Thank you in advance for your help!
Avatar n tn I visited a dermatologist who prescribed a steroid ointment. Lately, I've been getting these small bumps only on my chin that are fluid-filled, not pus, and kind of cluster together. They aren't pimples and don't form heads and they seem different from the rash I had before from mangoes. When I "pop" them, a clear fluid seeps out. I did a little research and considered it could be perioral dermatitis.
Avatar m tn I went back to the doctor and was put on metronidazole 0.75%. When i stopped hydrocortisone and just used metronidazole my skin went very red, dry, itchy and slightly raised. My skin was also weeping and my eyes started to swell. I got quite scared and used some hydrocortisone which made the skin almost return to normal after just a couple of applications. But as soon as i stopped the steroid cream all symptoms would come flooding back.

Avatar n tn I am now going bacitracin + neomycin and I buy a metronidazole ... I certainly do not get into sex and got after using a simulated oral sex that I was not very clean ... I just want to get rid of this infection ...
Avatar n tn For the past 18 months I have frequently used hydrocortisone ointment on my cheeks (mainly the right cheek) to treat atopic dermatitis,as diagnosed by a derm. In the past few months my face has become extremely red & burns intolerably; some nights I can't sleep. Small pimples are visable on the right side. It does not itch. I returned to my derm who said I may have some component of Rosacea, although he was unsure.He prescribed 100mg doxycycline daily + metronizazole cream.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed 500mg metronidazole 2x daily for a week and it didn't clear. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow to figure out what's going on and explore other options. Bv is dangerous to my unborn and I'm nervous..
Avatar f tn My OB gave me some Amlactin lotion to try, it dried my skin out but no relief. After about a month I saw a dermatologist who gave me desonide ointment, it makes the bumps disappear and my skin to smooth but the redness persists and as soon as I stop it flares right back up (getting worse over time). He cultured it at the time and was only able to tell me that it wasn't fungal. After a month I saw him again, I quit the desonide for a 1.
Avatar f tn He has been on Bacitracin Ointment, Metronidazole Topical Gel USP 0.75%, Metronidazole 500 mg tablets, Bactrim and Prednisone. Not all at once of course. The only thing that has worked has been the Prednisone. The rash/sores have cleared up but have left scarring. The do not itch in general. Do become very red and are very nasty looking. We cover his face with makeup so that he can go out in public. They do almost look like sores.
Avatar n tn Get a prescription from your doctor for either metronidazole cream or oral doxycycline (or both). The rash should be gone for good in about 30-60 days. Take care. Dr.
Avatar f tn Hi Northcoast Consider looking into lichen schlerosis. There are various discussions going on in women's health and in the dermatology area. Hope this helps some.
Avatar n tn Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.Pls consult a dermatologist in that case. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn There could be a few trigger factors to this like emotional stress, sun exposure, hot humid climates, hot baths, alcohol, some food products etc. You could try using anti-biotic ointment such as metronidazole with azelaic acid and see if this seem to help. If you do not notice improvement I would suggest seeing a dermatologist. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Treatment is by metronidazole and clindamycin. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Last saturday I survived a car accident. I have open wounds on my face (Bruises / Cuts) Most of them are small cuts and bruises. One cut is a bit deep not gapping though. I am upset that it will leave marks on my face. I am currently using a Providine-iodine, Metronidazole & Aloe Vera Ointment. Any advices on how and what should I do to minimize possibilities of scars / marks on my face? All insights will be deeply appreciated. Good Day to all.
Avatar n tn Over time, it turned from small papular (in my best description) red spots to having slight ***** areas in the middle. I eventually turned to an over the counter hydrocortisone ointment, which helped for a short time, but then ceased to help, and it seemed like the condition just worsened. In mid April, I went to a general healthcare practicioner at my school, who diagnosed me with folliculitis of the beard area, and she gave me clindamycin pledgets to use for a bacterial infection.
Avatar f tn I went to my GYN 6 days after the unprotected encounter, and was diagnosed with BV, and tested for everything else (which all came back negative but I realize this doesn't mean much, due to the timing being so soon afterwards). I was prescribed to take metronidazole orally twice a day for a week. I have also been using diaper rash cream to aid with the dryness and discomfort, and have been taking great care in checking myself for herpes lesions the entire time.
Avatar f tn He just put on some ointment and was done. When I asked the nurse if I can kiss my boyfriend she said yes, Can I trust her? Also she recommended me a "Triamcinolone Acetonide" ointment. I kissed a guy about 14 days ago could he have given me HSV and I din't know about it? I had a antibiotics for couple of weeks (amoxycillin and metronidazole) will that somehow weaken my immune system. I got a date tomorrow and I'm pretty sure we will kiss.
Avatar m tn I FOUND A SOLUTION EVERYONE OMG PLEASE READ THIS, I had EXACTLY the same problem as everyone here, dry irritated red itchy skin above my lip, I went to the doctors so many times and it got me down sooo much, I was going to get a referral from a skin specialist but decided to try the doctors for the 8th time.. after trying fucidin H, dalktarin, metronidazole etc..anyway..
Avatar f tn That can be done by applying a broad spectrum bacterial ointment like Neosporin. Just apply a thin layer wherever it hurts and re-apply as it gets wiped/washed off. If it's bacteria causing your discomfort, you should feel much better in a day or two. Good luck.
Avatar n tn All of the tests came back and I was told I had bacteria there so I was given Clendesse (which is a one day treatment) and it still did nothing so they called in a script of oral metronidazole for 5 days. Nothing. So I went to yet another dr and was told I had a bladder infection and was given keflex which caused a yeast infection. I've been in and out of dr's offices for 5 months now with no answers.
Avatar f tn You can use tacrolimus ointment for this.Using this rosacea often resolves the itch, redness, and tenderness of steroid-induced rosacea in 7 to 10 days with twice daily application. Complete clearing of steroid-induced rosacea usually takes 1 to 2 months. Sometimes clearing takes a bit longer. Avoiding rosacea triggers, such as caffeine, spicy foods, and alcohol, also may help clear the skin.But pls don’t worry as it is not a permanent condition. Hope it helps.
