Avatar f tn I have been misdiagnosed in the past 7 months for vaginosis, yeast infection, fungal infection, and Urinary Tract Infection and took all the antibiotics that were prescribed to me. It came to my attention that it might be an STD instead of a simple infection once my boyfriend started having extreme testicular pain accompanied with discharge and mild burning while urinating.
Avatar m tn My doctor did a culture of my throat and penis to determine if I have chlamydia or gonorrhea. But he decided to go ahead and treat me for the above STDs. I was given a shot of an antibiotic yesterday and put on a regiment of doxycycline. How long will it before I start to feel better. I have had relief with the feeling of swollen testicles but my throat doesnt seem to be any better at all. I'm concerned for some reason that this isnt going to respond to treatment.
Avatar n tn I also got a bad reaction to Clindamycin a feeling of big lump in throat, sore throat and severe heartburn. In spite of the fact that I drank at least 10ounces of water with each pill. My question is since I'm allergic to penicillin. What antibiotic is effective for teeth and gum infections???? Thank you.
Avatar f tn about 3 weeks ago i developed a sore throat, cough and runny and stuffy nose. the symptoms have declined. but after two weeks of treatment i still have a slightly sore throat, facial pain. In your homest opinion, given the time frame and no other symptoms. how likely do you think it is that i have HIV?
Avatar n tn At the beggining I Thought it s him because every time I would see him and had intercourse with him I would get throat infection. He says he did his blood tests and that he doesn t have no std s. Now Tomorrow I m going for blood tests myself because the doctor told me I might have soemthing viral. I never seen the papers proving that my boyfriend is clean but he said he ll show them to me. I don t like accusing left and right but honestly I am very concerned about this.
Avatar m tn I am wondering what the likelihood of having the infection in my throat or eyes as well. I do not have any symptoms in my eyes, but i have had what feels like congestion in my throat. I was treated with a shot and oral antibiotics. My question is - how does treatment differ for infections of genitals vs throat or eyes. If I am infected in my throat, do I need additional treatment? Thanks.
Avatar m tn If there is a infection, you need empirical treatment with a course of broad spectrum antibiotic against prescription. Send blood or throat swab for culture and antibiotic sensitivity. Need to do antiseptic mouth gargle to take care of source of infection. At this point of time we cannot say for sure without medical finding. For above symptoms consult ENT specialist. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn The doctor told me it was probably strep throat and prescribed me penecillin. My throat got better. Only 12 days off of the antibiotics, and I decided to get tested for a STD as the symptoms of painful urination and an itch in my penis worsened and became much more bothersome. Now I'm wondering, could this strep throat really have been gonorrhea or another STD.
Avatar f tn Or, are you going to see the doctor for treatment? It could be positive for bacteria, or parasitic infection or blood in the stool, or even a virus. So, you need to find out what is going on. Let me know what they say.
Avatar n tn White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat which you had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tongue and throat. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

The sore throat has not yet improved, the tonsils still have white mucous patches, and the rash does not appear to be improving. I'm also still getting headaches everyday, especially at night.
