Zithromax eye infection

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax eye infection


Avatar m tn After a little reading I noticed that Zithromax would be used to treat the eye infection too; would the dosage be the same if so?. The only thing I can think that may have affected the antibiotics was a single (bottle) alcohol drink on Friday night. On a side note, I live in Japan and didn't quite understand all the Japanese the doctor was sayinh. He suggested that I should wait a week after taking the antibiotics before resuming sex.. and obviously, use a condom. Is this normal practice?
Avatar m tn Yesterday I picked my daughter up from nursery and noticed that she had an eye infection - red eye with watery discharge. Took her to the doctor where they diagnosed conjunctivitus and prescribed her an antibiotic eye ointment. My concern is that although I'm normally very good with hand hygiene I may still have managed to spread the chlamydia bacteria to her eye causing this infection. My doctor says it's unlikely.
Avatar f tn After a visit to the pediatrician, the nurse practioner diagnosed him with a sinus infection coming out of the eye. He did not have a fever and did not have a runny nose or even cough. He was treated with amoxicillian until 3/8 where he was back at the pediatricians office because he was not improving. The nurse practioner gave the same diagnosis and changed the medication to augmentin. On 3/15/11 he woke up with a swollen face under his eyes and they were swollen shut and very red.
428506 tn?1296560999 ) started Zithromax in addition to Mino, which I've been on about 1 month. I'm *hoping* that the dramatic eye pain last night, the likes of which I haven't had since my eye problems were starting, was possibly a herx or other sign that *maybe* my eye symptoms will start to clear up? Any reactions, or other tales of Lyme/eye involvement? Thanks.
Avatar m tn I got a shot for gonorrhea and had to take zithromax. A few days later I developed an eye infection and still have that eye infection. Is it possible I could have gotten gonorrhea in the eye from touching myself since I was infected? How is this treated if the shot didn't take care of it?
Avatar n tn I'm 18 weeks pregnant today. I got a stye in my eye late last week, I went to the doctors for it and the prescribed a Z-pack. Since it seemed to be getting better without the medicine I didn't take it (don't realy want to take medicine while I'm pregnant unless I have to) and it went away, I woke up this morning and my eye hurt really bad and the stye is back and bleeding!

There is also a small perforation that exists perhaps of the infection. Is there any concerns that this fungus could of entered my blood stream?
446156 tn?1275863176 It's like putting regular saline eye drops in your eye for pink eye.
Avatar m tn I went through sexual health screenings, tested negative to diabetes or STDs (chlamydia, ghonnorhea etc) and doctor felt it may be a case of urethritis. Did Zithromax, did Doxicycline and Cefixme a couple of times but it always seemed to come back again, was put on Cipro for 10 days. The next time it seemed to come back, Doctor gave me a prostate exam but didnt feel it was overly enlarged/swollen, and put me on 6 weeks of Septra DS.
223173 tn?1189759426 Rupture of a capillary of the eye lid, any other vein in the eye rupturing maybe due to high blood pressure or due to infection can also be a cause. Please discuss these possibilities with an eye specialist. In your husband’s case the infection has probably causes a vein to rupture. Take care!
Avatar n tn I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Avatar m tn While on a layover I noticed some slight redness in my left eye, although it was not very itchy,or painful. Later on during my journey my urination had become very painful a 10 on a scale of 1-10, and the amount was very minimal, maybe due to dehydration during my 30 hours of travel... I arrived home yesterday the 23rd- and now my left eye was a bit more irritated and my urination was also still very painful. I started drinking tons of water , and cranberry juice.
3180166 tn?1344485413 I think its a throat infection, and thats what my mediocre doctor told me. (known to misdiagnose) I spit out a bit of gunk ALOT , and its just irritating, it doesn't really hurt when i swallow much, and i dont have fevers, but i do feel dizzy ALL the time and i feel nauseous and my stomach tends to tense up. I thought i was pregnant! i was so excited and i had a negative result. In my country they dont do cultures, they dont make sure they have the right diagnosis, they just want your money.
Avatar n tn I got tested for Genital herpes which came out negative, but I have been looking online and alot of people say that many people get a misdiagonosis of Herpes as a Yeast infection. That is when I was diagonosed with a yeast infection (Papsmear and they found alittle Yeast). I've been lost ever since the Middle of November because this is when it seems to have been happening!
Avatar n tn I recently saw a dermatologist who said if the burning persists I will need to see a urologist as this infection (fungal or bacterial unsure) spread near the opening and it hurts to pee. The dermatologist has given me antibacterial prescription cream along with a mix of hydrocortisone and antifungal cream with a pill of diflucan (antifungal pill). The dr thinks its some yeast around the area and wants to see me in one week because it's bad.
Avatar n tn Gave me Nasal Spray, Steroid eye drops, Singulaire and Cipro (just in case there was an infection going on.) Did great until the Cipro treatment was over. June - Severe pain in LEFT eye, LEFT ear that was always worse after doing PT stretches for my cervical stenosis. I became completely deaf in my LEFT ear - with odd sounds richoting in my head when I brushed my teeth or took a shower. My left arm dramatically increased in neurological sensations.
Avatar n tn In mid April I was diagnosed with chlamydia (had burning sensation, sore at tip of the penis) and was given Zithro (sp??). After a week I was starting to get an infection in the eye and went in to get Vigamox drops. After about two weeks of it not clearing up, I went to the urologist and was given Levaquin (sp??) along with checking the prostate, etc and testing negative for chlamydia The burning sensation gradually went away, but the "heavy" eyelid never went away.

Avatar n tn I saw my family doctor about three weeks into the sinus infection, and took Zithromax, but it didn't help. I have since had flare ups of the eye redness, pain and light sensitivity 3 times since the original episode. Twice it was after I had begun to wear my contacts again. Once it occurred the day after I had taken two 30-minute airplane trips in one day. I had not been wearing my contacts before the plane trips. The last incident started Sunday with lots of redness and stinging.
Avatar f tn 4 days later My wife and I took 1g of zithro each and now it is 7 days after the zithro and I have pink eye but my burning pee is gone and no urethra pain. I also got tested 4 days after the zithro for chlamydia/gonorrhea and both came back negative. The pinkeye started 3 days ago which was 4 days into the Zithromax. I never hat a cut like embrasion on my penis so I'm not worried about herpes but I would like to know if I can have sex without giving anything to anyone?
Avatar m tn I was treated with cipro, with no results and then went to the ER and was given a shot of rocephin, a 1000 mg of Zithromax and prescribed doxycycline. The discharge went away, and the lymph swelling in my left armpit, left elbow and behind my left knee went down by about 1/3, but stayed swollen and irritated for over a year. I had unprotected sex after that with only one woman for a few months, but I always pulled out and never ejaculated in her.
Avatar n tn He must have assumed it was some type of infection or he would not have prescribed the Zithromax. And yesterday she sucked down water like it was going out of style. Anyway, last night I went through quite a scare though! It appears the infection has gone to her nasal passages.
Avatar n tn I wonder if i have chlamydia at all having one test-pcr possitive and others negatives and my Gu doctor gave me doxy or zithromax. i have tested many times the story is long Gu doctor said you have nothing - a real failure, eye infection due to lack of conscious. please answer the question above!
Avatar n tn It is possible that you are experiencing an infection, either viral or bacterial. One type of infection that can produce much of what you are describing is a sinus infection. The best way to make the diagnosis is with a CT scan of the sinus, although x-rays are a decent alternative. I would not recommend using antibiotics "blindly". This will not help you to decide which ones to use, what the problem really is, or how long to treat.
Avatar m tn I went to the physician and he diagnosed me with urethritis and prescribed 1 gram of Zithromax and 10 days worth of Vibramycin and even an injection of Ricophen to clear out any gonoccual infection present. I still had urinary symptoms even though they weren't as bad and I did urine and blood test for an STD all came out negative to see if the infection was completely out of my system. About a month later I started having chest pains, soreness and tender to touch the outer chest wall esp.
Avatar n tn I went back to her and from kissing i got the symptom a little flue like just after one day come to mine then gone and swallowing of pus remained all the time. A doctor gave me zithromax 3days but the throat burning after i stopped and i notice in my eye a swelling at the lower lid where i had touched it ( with my stupid methode to clean dust in my eye - saliva on pointed tissue). You see I did not get a symptom in my eye at that time; why - may be of the garlic i was daily eating.
