Strep throat and z pack

Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and z pack


Avatar n tn Z-pack for Strep Throat? Hmmmm. I think he/she should have probably went in the direction of a broad-spectrum antibiotic, i.e. Amoxicillin vs. Zithromax. I have seen Zithromax ordered for Strep Throat, but not that often.
Avatar n tn Hi Dr. About two weeks back, I had an encounter with a TV escort. I'm straight and on occasion do this. Have never had anal sex either way. This time, we kissed deeply for a while...additionally, she stuck her penis in my mouth for a minute, no ejaculation, but unsure if there was pre-cum. He penis was in my throat. This week, I've encountered a severe sore throat, muscle aches, exhaustion, etc. I went to the Dr. and she put me on a Z-Pack as she saw bacteria in my throat.
Avatar f tn I had a throat culture and urinalysis and sediment done and the NP said she thinks I have a viral infection or strep at the time of the appt yesterday (bad sore throat, swollen glands, urine frequency, fever, chills and body aches) Well I have access to my records online and this is what my urinalysis and sediment said, I don't understand what they mean? Urinalysis: UCLRG: Dark Yellow UAPP: Cloudy UGLG: Negative (Normal is Negative) UBILI: Small++ UKTG Negative (Normal is Negative) SGG 1.
Avatar n tn She spent next to no time with me, said I had an upper respiratory infection that spread everywhere in my head, and prescribed z-pack. She told me my throat was a bit inflamed, my glands were swollen and my ears had some fluid in them. Nothing about tonsils, but I'm not sure if I can trust her! Well, she forgot to tell her nurse about the z-pack, because her nurse told me whatever I had was going around, lingered for weeks and antibiotics don't touch it.
Avatar m tn No other symptoms what so ever. Find it hard to loose weight even I try, take toprol and pravachol, was on Z-pack for strep throat when CT was done. Someone?
Avatar m tn I also wanted to note that during the time I was getting this HIV test I was on a z-pack for strep throat. I was just wondering if you think I need further HIV testing? I am not sure if the medication I was on would effect the results or if I tested too soon. Thank you so much for your time.
Avatar n tn I was tested for strep after initial infection and it was negative and then I had a throat culture taken after a follow-up (after the coarse of the z-pack) and they came back clean too. I had a blood test taken for mono and that was negative too. I had an HIV oral test at four weeks and it was negative but this sore throat won't quit. My left tonsil is slightly more swollen and I have slightly lymph node on that side. The throat is worse in the mornings.
Avatar m tn Hello All, About 2 weekends ago I had a very passionate oral sex session with a girl that I knew for years. I went down on her and even stuck my tongue in her anus a few times. By the following morning I started feeling a sore throat. I immediately started gargling listerine when I got home. In the following few days the sore throat got worse and I got a low grade fever (100.3). I started taking tylenol and eating soup. My throat kept getting worse and I was feeling really sick.
Avatar f tn Two days later and one day left of antibiotics the left side began hurting just as bad, exact same symptoms, but it is getting worse, left ear and left side of the throat. I again called the doctor and was given a prescription for z-pack. Anybody have any ideas what is causing this, and what I can do for the pain, the motrin and oragel is just not working well enough, and I am starting to get hungry!!!
Avatar f tn Also went to the docters and he gave me z-pack finished the antibotics did nothing for my throat. The doc gave me a throat swab for strep came back negitive. My throat is still filled with puss and my gland on my right side is a bit swollin I have had some stomach pain and have felt run down (this could be caused by stress?) I have bin very stressed out this past month.
Avatar f tn Well, it may not be strep if he hasn't done a strep test or culture. Do you have pus in your throat or did you? Do you have a high fever/ He is probably just treating for a variety of bacteria. Yes if you haven't cleared the sore throat and ear infection (which could also be viral. You should really get cultures done if it hasn't cleared or clarify if he thinks it is viral but is treating empircally to make sure you don't get a secondary infection such as pneumonia.
599170 tn?1300973893 t treat the mono (it is a virus), but mono is sometimes accompanied by a secondary infection such as strep throat or a tonsilitis. This is probably what the Z-pack is for. The steroids are to ease some of the swelling. It is possible that your son has a step infection or a tonsilitis again. You don't say how low his WBC count was, but I would discuss your concerns with his pediatrician and ask him/her about this specifically.
Avatar n tn said no, gave me a Z-pack and sent me home. A few days later I had saliva HIV test at clinic and was negative. Clinic said it wouldn't show for 3-6 months after initial exposure. I'm married and petrified. Question: What is the timetable for Oral Thrush and HIV? What further early detection signs would I look for? When should I get retested?
Avatar m tn She ran a NAAT urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia, and throat culture. All came back negative. My doctor prescribed me 1g of z-pack to take in a single dose if the tests came back positive. On 1/4 my symptoms got worse. My tonsils began to get the white spots/streaks again, and my throat pain greatly increased. I am also feeling much more run down. I messaged my doctor and she told me to finish the Doxy and wait it out. I finished the Doxy today, and am getting worse.
Avatar f tn Before Thanksgiving I went to the doctor and was given a z-pack. I missed one day of the pack so I double up the next day. I was told that I probably had strep throat although I was never tested for anything. The doctor said I should just rest and the z-pack should clear everything up. It did not. I never really recovered from this and continued to feel sick. I went to a different doctor around the first-second week of Dec 2009 and I was given steroids.
Avatar f tn I took my daughter to the er for strepthroat and when the doctor was nearly done with her I told him my throat had been a little sore he looked and said its a little red but I had no other symptoms but was going to treat me as if I had it as well we both rec predisnol and 2 antibiotics and a presc for the z pac. We both left d hosp got mmeds and took the 2.
Avatar f tn Maybe you should be tested for hand, foot, and mouth. This can cause sore throat and also peeling of skin on hands and feet. You should return to your dr. as he or she may need to give you another round of antibiotics for the strep. Hope you get well soon.
Avatar f tn When to my general practitioner who put me on 5 days z pack antibiotics (did not do a culture). Finished z pack Saturday. Still have white stuff in the back of my throat and feeling sore again. Am a little worried about having to do too many antibiotics on tx. Am worried maybe they are not as effective on tx. Will try calling my gp and my hep doc tomorrow now that the holidays are over. Just wondering if anyone has had similar issues or knowledge that could help.
Avatar f tn Next day I started coughing could hardly speak and runny nose, sneezing. At day 5 of not speaking, etc I went to the doctor and he gave me a Z-Pack which I finished. A few days went by and the sore throat subsided, I was left with post nasal drip, itchy throat, cough and a congestion for another week. Then everything subsided except the cough.
3142113 tn?1343379632 A throat infection is not caused by hypothyroidism. Throat infections can be streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar n tn I felt as though my whole tongue was burning and it looked unusually white. And then my throat started hurting and feels clogged with mucus. I went to the ER but the doctor couldn't figure it out and didn't think it was oral thrush even though I could scrape the white stuff off. He gave me a benydrill and told me to stop taking clindamycin and took me off antibiotics then sent me on my way.
Avatar f tn I have swollen neck lymph nodes, swollen sore tonsils with white spots on them, some drainage, fever, high white blood cell count. I was put on z-pack and given a shot of rocephin last wednesday was feeling better sat, so I went out and I think I may have over-did it, I know feel worse than before. I was running a 101.5 F fever all day yesterday. I went to the dr.
Avatar f tn About a week after the event, I camed down with an upper respiratory infection and was prescribed a Z Pak. I was to take the first 2 pill the first night, a total of 500 mg and 250 mg for the following four days. My question is... do you think that is effective against eliminating Gonnorhea if I were to have it? And what other STD's could this take care of?
Avatar n tn My primary care physician prescribed me Z pack, not sure why, she probably thought it was strep throat. But to no visible outcome as I still have swollen tonsils; however a week and a half or so ago I started noticing patchy sores on my penis. I thought it was from masterbating too much but it seems now they have spread to scrotum (the part directly under the penis) and all around my penis and even red sores on parts of the head. I've also have a canker sore in my mouth.
Avatar f tn Five days later I am ill with a sore throat my dr does not test me but assumes I strep she gives me a z pack which does not clear it up as I still have white patches in my mouth on both sides of mouth behind my back teeth. I go back she gives me an allergy shot and cedifnir both of which don't work. I go to a different dr I test negative for strep but positive for some yeast in my mouth. She gives me Nystatin swish and swallow which did not clear these patches up.
Avatar f tn They gave me a antibiotic shot for Penicillen and prescribed me one Z pack (azithromycin).I went back and got results for my culture and everything was normal..That day I went and got tested for Herpes on the 2nd of December (blood test) and tested negative. I went back to the hospital that Friday because there was no improvement with my throat and my tonsils still had white spots on them after taking the five pills of azithromycin.
1808606 tn?1316360668 I've been diagnosed with Pharyngitis Strep by the 'Nurse-in-a-box' at Walgreens. She Rx'd a 5-day Z-pack (azithormiycin 250mg 6pk). I'm on day 3. I have the typical white ulcers on my tonsils but for the last 2 to 2 1/2 days I've had itchy hands. This a.m. I wake up and see that I have clear liquid filled blisters on both hands. They're all over, on the knuckles, palms, pads of my fingers and I believe some are starting up on my feet.
