Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and keflex


Avatar f tn is it ok to take Keflex if you are on Synthroid? I have strep throat and take 75 mcg of Synthroid.
Avatar n tn m sick again, only this time there seems to be no white spots on my tonsils and I have a stuffy/runny nose. My throat is more itchy and scratchy then hurting this time, but my tonsils are still red and swollen. Is it possible I have strep yet again, or does this sound more like just a cold?? Oh and no fever, I had a fever the other 2 times I had strep.
Avatar n tn Along with high fever,sore throat and swolen glands and fatigue, is vomiting a sign of mono? My Dr. prescribed keflex while we wait for my overnight strep test. Your thoughts? thank you!
Avatar f tn Had a TT on 7/29 and when I went back to surgeon I had strep throat and ear infection. He gave me 500 mg of Keflex, 3 times a day. Isn't 1,500 a large amount? Stella, you are here also.
Avatar f tn Can you call him and ask for another antibiotic? I don't know other antibiotics that wouldn't hurt your stomach.
Avatar f tn Hello, I went swimming a early june and few days after that my ears started to hurt real bad and it gave me terrible headaches coming and going. Then I developed strep throat week later, got rid of it. I been putting Similasan earache releif it helped a little. And now its september 2, my ears don't hurt as bad but I think I lost some of my hearing, I can't hear like I use to. Now I'm having a problem with my left eye and left nostril watering.
Avatar f tn White patches on the sides of the back of my mouth/throat area as well as swelling. Cultures for strep and mono came back negative but I was given keflex antibiotics and all went away in four-five days. Two months later I started feeling a slight tingling/ irritation at the tip of my penis. I am circumcised. That sensation got worse over the next couple months along with red / wrinkly glans appearance especially after masterbation or shower. Almost looks like a bunch of tiny red pin size bumps.
Avatar f tn I got up this morning after only 1 hr of sleep to go to work and I had no voice and more intensified throat pain. I messaged my boss again and got no response so I went in. My husband says I should stay home and is worried my illness might hurt the baby. I don't want to lose my job but my boss is ignoring my need to stay home today.what would you do? Is my husband right? Could my illness hurt our little girl?
Avatar n tn I just read your question about the possible allergic reaction to Keflex. I had previously taken Keflex for mononucleosis at the age of 18 and and other things during my early 20's and never had a problem. A few years later when i was 28 I took it again. I had a terrible reaction. I had very large raised hives that started on the tops of my thighs, inside my arms and up my neck. My eyes were swollen and breathing became a task. I double dosed benendryl and went to ER.
Avatar f tn She was exposed to strep throat this week. Diagnosis was UTI and ear infection, she was started on keflex. she has had 1 dose this afternoon. She now has a red rash that has a "sunburn like appearance" and is rough to touch, so i am thinking scarlett fever, however the rash is primarily under her panties in the front and her armpits. there is some on her back but it's not nearly as noticable as the other 2 locations.
Avatar n tn I have no idea what's going on with my tonsils. Three days ago I started to have a terrible sore throat. I didn't think much about until it didn't go away and it didn't feel quite like a sore throat. For one the pain wasn't where it normally would be. I started to panic when I finally looked in the mirror and saw white spots all over both tonsils. I went to the doctor and they told me I didn't have strep.
Avatar n tn I am about 6 weeks pregnant and my OB/GYN found bacteria in my urine. Prescribed Keflex. I am, however, worried that it may cause harm to the developing fetus, even though, I am aware that Keflex is pregnancy category B. Please advise me regarding the possible side effects of this antibiotic on the fetus. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I seeked medical attention by this point and the doctor told me i had strep throat so he gave a shot( i dont remember what is was called) and azithromycin 250mg. I waited a week and it wouldnt go away so i went again and this time he gave me amoxicillin and chlorpheniramine which help but only slighty. I ended up going for a third visit and he gave me keflex and singular and once again it helped just slightly with just the throat irritation.
Avatar n tn I am having a sensitive and sore throat recently. I had a few musings as to what it was from. I had a flu vaccine about 7 or 8 days ago. I breathed in comet powder with bleach accidentally about 5 days ago. About an hour afterward my upper lungs burned and I could taste the cleaner. I smoke about a 1/4 to 1/2 of a pack of cigarettes a day for the last 10 or 11 years, I am 24. I also work at a psych hospital where MRSA and other things run rampant, so to speak.
Avatar f tn So, November 7th, I had unprotected oral sex and protected anal sex. Well, he went in once without a condom and I made him pull out to put a condom on. Anywho, around November 26th, my throat was sore and had inflamed tonsils with white patches on them. I immediately got scared and went to the ER where she said it was strep but didn't take a throat swab. She prescribed me Keflex and I went back two days later because of no improvement.

Avatar m tn After 9 weeks of cipro 1gm od, Strep b was found in the semen culture. Unfortunately, I had a urologist who treated me macrobid, keflex, doxycicline,flagyl and zithromax. When I suggested IV vancomycin as I am allergic to ampicillin, He said that's only for abcesses. How do you get your urologist to use the appropriate antibiotic treatment?
Avatar m tn Things seemed normal for a couple of weeks. I got another sore throat that lasted 5-6 days and cleared up on its own. A few days later, another one. I'm now on my third sore throat in a little over a month and a half but these all new symptoms have me really concerned. Really bad pain in the soles of my feet. It feels like the bones. All of my limbs have this squeezing feeling that comes and goes; side to side. The worst is my left upper arm seemingly right between the bicep and tricep.
Avatar n tn The last two times that I gave him oral sex I broke out in the most painful blisters on my tonsils. I went to the Dr. because I thought that I had strep throat and the test came back as just a virus, however, I don't know what virus.
Avatar n tn We stopped treating him with Keflex but even so ever since then his voice loss has been intermittent and comes and gos from time to time. What is really causing a concern now is that just yesterday - he has begun to complain about intermittent hearing loss all of a sudden! Have any ideas on how to go about helping him before the loss becomes permanent? Should he be treated by an ear/nose/throat specialist or a neurologist ?
Avatar f tn 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 f tn The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
Avatar f tn The last antibiotics I took were Keflex which seemed to have no effect, and I finished them the second week of January.
Avatar m tn So in the past week and a half I began to get what looked like strep in the back of my throat. Swollen tonsils and little white dots accompanied by of course a sore throat. Usually when this occurs it comes with a fever this time it didn't. I then started to notice bumps on the back of my tongue followed by about 2 days of my tongue slightly swelling. I found that abnormal for having strep throat but figured it might be just a different strain.
533880 tn?1237612452 Since Thanksgiving I have had the flu three times and I have had step throat 2 times. I have never had the flu or strep before, in the last month and a half I have had strep twice. At first I thought I had the flu, constant high fevers, my body was swore, could not eat, no vomiting, but after one week with that I would get a sore throat and that is when I would notice the white patches in the back of my throat. Is this the usually pattern of strep throat.
