I received mutliple labs stating I have hsv2. I kept getting outbreaks but not blisters. Amoxicillin stopped them. Is this herpes?
Probably not herpes: Amoxicillin has no effect on herpes. Probably a second problem that also causes skin lesions, e.g. folliculitis. See doctor during outbreak (s) for proper diagnosis. Herpes outbreaks never more often than every 4-6 wk; typically a small cluster of a few bumps that become blisters, then heal over 7-10 days; no symptoms at all between outbreaks. Prevent HSV outbreaks w/ acyclovir or valacyclovir.
I think I have herpes and I have been experiencing pain while urinating will amoxicillin help this painfull urinating?
Cold for 3 wks, then a facial herpes breakout, then pink eye. Went to dr, gave me a prescription for amoxicillin because "i've been sick so long" why?
I oral on a guy 3 wks ago & couple days later white spots on tonsils. After taking amoxicillin white spots smaller is it herpes no bump on lips/cheeks?
Yeast inf. From amoxicillin lastest 2.5 weeks. Also caused burning with urination. Is this normal? Doc. Also tested for herpes b/c red rash present.
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.
Doc diagnosed herpes (shingles) (red rashes on right scalp, cheek & neck with fever) but prescribed amoxicillin+clavulanate combi. Is this any good?
Viral infection: The medication you've bee prescribed is Not a customary treatment for herpes zoster infection. I generally prescribe Valtrex™ Or similar. Your treating MD may be treating you for a bacterial infection you've been diagnosed. Check with your doctor to have a clarification, or seek a second opinion.
I think I have herpes. I had strep 2weeksago prior to taking amoxicilin I realized I broke out with bumps on vagina. In also late on period. Help!?!
Herpes: Herpes wouldn't have any connection to the Amoxicillin you were taking for strep throat (although outbreaks can happen during times of stress and with other infections). If you think it is herpes, you should get checked soon as proper treatment with an antiviral medication works best the earlier it's given in an outbreak. Best of luck!
Yes: Different mechanisms, should be safeGet a more detailed answer ›
Hopefully better: Not sure what you are asking. Generally Amoxicillin has few side-effects. Some people have mild GI intolerance, and there are allergic reactions. If it is doing its job and was chosen carefully you should feel improved.
Amoxicilin OD: One should try to never take more than the recommended dose of a medicine but fortunately this one has a fairly low risk of serious problems. One would have to take a very large amount of medicine to have any serious side effects from it. The most likely apart from an upset stomach would be diarrhea.
Chlamydia: That is not the recommended treatment nor one of its alternatives either. Please seek medical advice before using a medication that is not indicated for your condition. Chalmydia might have long lasting complications.See 1 more doctor answer
