Cellulitis-big toe.Not cured by 2 weeks augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) from dermatologist.Bad rxn to 1day of doxycycline.See infectious disease md? Podiatrist?(cbc pending.)

Ouch!: I have a question. Was there any involvement of your toenail? Swelling, pain, tenderness or pus in the nail area? If so, i would encourage you to see a podiatrist. If there is nail growing into tissue, it will continue to act as a nidus for infection. Home it gets better soon. ...Read more

Help please! is augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) an effective treatment for tonsillitis caused by virus not bacteria?

Help please! is augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) an effective treatment for tonsillitis caused by virus not bacteria?

Tonsillitis: Augmentin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. Thusly, if your tonsillitis is caused by a virus, then Augmentin would be an ineffective treatment in that scenario. Viral tonsillitis responds best to symptomatic care, such as ibuprofen, advil, motrin, tylenol (acetaminophen). Rest up and push those fluids! ...Read more

With Cefzil & rocephin (ceftriaxone) I get hives.Should I take penicillin shot for syphilis treatment.This is a 3rd infection. Used doxycycline for first 2.

With Cefzil & rocephin (ceftriaxone) I get hives.Should I take penicillin shot for syphilis treatment.This is a 3rd infection. Used doxycycline for first 2.

Condoned: Penicillin is still the first line treatment for syphilis. The most effective treatment for syphilis is not to get it, use a condom. The more often you get it, the greater your risk for antibiotic resistance. Also, with this being your third episode, you are now at high risk of contracting chlamydia and HIV. You need to get tested for those too. Stop playing Russian roulette with your life. ...Read more

I'm now immune to all oral antibiotics for uti/kidney infections, urologist giving me weekly doses of  Gentamiacin, infection is recurring?

Chronic UTI: Thought we had addressed this yesterday. You probably need to be seen by an infectious diseases expert rather than a urologist. If you do not have diminished renal function you are not receiving gentamicin correctly, and there may be other avenues to go to before this drug damages your hearing. Best wishes. ...Read more
