Yeast inf. from amox: First, were you treated for yeast infection? If so vaginal cream or Diflucam ? Some women are resistant to normal treatments, and might require extended duration for these medications.Also could be a UTI that keeps irritating the skin. Another concern is underlying Diabetes ,with pts.taking much longer to rid of infections. Anemia or immunosuppresion from diseases can affect healing times.

Agreed . In susceptible women I routinely give a single dose of Fluconazole with any abx 3 days or more for UTI. As prevention

Need more info...: Your symptoms could be 'urinary bladder' related' or possibly from your kidney on that side. If you are female it may stem from one of the ovaries...But it is difficult to go further without more details; and without examining you. Your next stop should be to your doctors' office for the above.
A 24-year-old member asked:

If I have oral herpes (hsv-1) and I received oral sex from my partner who kissed me, do I have genital herpes?

Dr. Rebecca Gray

No: Hsv-1 is oral herpes and hsv-2 is genital herpes. It is possible to have hsv-1 in the genital area and vice versa. Hsv1 infections in the genital area are usually milder than hsv2 infections. Without viral culture, HSV 1 cannot be differentiated from HSV 2 based on exam alone. Therefore, if you are concerned about an outbreak, see your doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Abdominal pains: It could be many things, but you need to make sure there is not a bladder infection (a urine culture) or pregnancy (blood or urine pregnancy test). If its not either of those, further workup will be needed. If it gets very severe, go to your local er or talk to your primary doctor.

Dr. Joel Gallant

Depdns: For most throat infections, which are usually caused by viruses, you shouldn't take antibiotics at all. But if you've been diagnosed with strep throat, you should take Amoxil (amoxicillin) for the amount of time it was prescribed.
