Depends: A person with normal immune response usually does not develop oral thrush from a short course of antibiotics. It would be prudent to see the doctor who prescribed the antibiotics. Wish you good health!

A 35-year-old member asked:

Does a lower back ache mean I am in labor?

7 doctor answers19 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jerome Yaklic
Obstetrics and Gynecology 29 years experience
No: It could especially if it is crampy and comes and goes every few minutes. However, it could be due to additional strain in your low back muscles due to your expanding belly and less postural support from your stomach (rectus) muscles. It could also be pain in your pelvis (si joints) from the hip bones "moving" to create more room for your baby to come out. If uncertain see your healthcare provider.

Does my baby need antibiotics if he has an ear infection?

Dr. Gregg Alexander
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Not necessarily: Ear infections that aren't causing pain may clear without antibiotics (or the risks that antibiotics carry for allergic reactions, germ resistance building, diarrhea, etc.) See your pediatrician to determine whether an antibiotic is needed or if careful watching may be just as good - or better!

Yes: I recomend you keep the throat clean. Rinse and swish after meals. Use an antiseptic mouth wash. Avoid feeding the invading organisms.
