Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection antibiotics


Avatar m tn My dentist is/was afraid the infection would get into my throat. I have been taking the Clindamycin for a few days not and the infection keeps getting bigger and moving towards my throat. Would it help to take the Amoxicillin too? Would it hurt? Seeing as how I have paid for it I might aw well take it rather than tossing it out. Thank you for your help.

Avatar m tn My aunt is trying to convince me that the reason my cousin got hepatitis was because of her use of two different antibiotics for a throat infection.

Avatar m tn Part of the illness included an infection in the throat. The infection was cleared up with antibiotics but i was still very tired for a few weeks. Could this have been acute infection? Do people ever get sore throat that clear up with antibiotics during the window period?

Avatar m tn call the dentist and let him/her know you have a sore throat. the antibiotics will not make it worse, may even make it better. I just had my abscessed wisdom tooth pulled 2 weeks ago and was in the middle of taking the antibiotics, hadnt finished them yet. he may give you another rx for them or you may have to see your general practitioner. But definitely call them and give them a heads up!

Avatar n tn It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications.
Avatar f tn It could be a yeast infection but it's best to err on the side of caution and go and get properly tested before self treating.

Avatar f tn My 8 year old daughter has a reoccuring throat infection that requires antibiotics. She took 7 or 8 rounds of it last year and again this year seems to be getting it again. I do not want her to build up antibodies or become allergic to it. I know antibiotics are good here and there, but too much isn't good for you and if I can find a way to help her avoid her throat infections, I'd like to eliminate the need for antibiotics.

17450684 tn?1456814882 If your throat and sinus infections are caused by a virus, the antibiotics will not help. Antibiotics will only be useful if the infection is caused by bacteria. As your throat is persistently unwell, it may well be that you have a problem with the tonsils. Another home help remedy to help ease sore and painful throats is to gargle with salty water. Just dissolve some salt into a cup of water, gargle and spit it out. Ask your parent to book you in to see your doctor.

Avatar f tn I went to the emergency dentist yesterday morning BC I was up allll night before with a horrible toothache. Well I guess I have a slight infection in my wisdom tooth and it needs to be extracted asap but he wanted me to take the med first for a few days. Its on my sheet of same meds from my doctor and both dentist and pharmacist said it was fine but I'm so Leary! I guess infection is more harmful. I've never taken it before and intact, having taking any medication since I was about 15..
Avatar m tn Hi there, Ear pain, sore throat and headache are common in sinus infection. Along with antibiotics drink plenty of fluids to thin the mucus. Mucous thinning drugs and oral decongestants may also be used, as well as systemic steroids, topical nasal steroids and nasal saline irrigation. Steam inhalation should be continued. It is best to see your doctor and seek opinion for your symptoms. If the ear pain is severe you may need referral to an ear, nose, and throat specialist. I hope it helps.
Avatar f tn Hi, the symptoms described could be due to an infection, most probably 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.
