Cervicitis: I have used Doxycycline to treat cervicitis. However vaginitis is often either bacterial vaginosis, which is usually treated with Flagyl or metrogel, and isn't sensitive to doxy. Or another type of bacterial infection which may or may not be sensitive to doxycycline. ...Read more

What is a vaginitis? What causes it? Is it deadly? Painful? Treatable? How is it treated? How do you control the oder/smell?

Answers below: Vaginitis is usually caused by bacteria or fungus. The woman's body can allow these infections to occur and the symptoms include discharge, irritation, itching, pain, odor.

I have doxycycline how long do I take these pills and how many times per day do I take them to treat the tonsillitis?

I have doxycycline how long do I take these pills and how many times per day do I take them to treat the tonsillitis?

Don't take doxy: This is probably a virus, but could be strep throat. In any case, you should not take left over doxycycline for this purpose. If it's a virus, no antibiotic will help; and doxy is not the best antibiotic for strep infections. Contact your doctor and let her decide whether or what antibiotic to prescribe. Good luck! ...Read more

Can doxycycline treat acne? How long it's going to take to treat acne?

Can doxycycline treat acne? How long it's going to take to treat acne?

Not by itself: I see that you also have thrush and if you do, perhaps this isn't the best time to start on doxycycline. I trust you have been using topical benzoyl peroxide and this is the basis of your treatment. Usually you see good results in a few weeks with an effective anti-acne combination. Spironolactone, the birth control pill, or topical clindamycin are other possibilities. ...Read more

Is it ok to take both a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack and doxycycline safely together to treat a rash on your face?

Is it ok to take both a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack and doxycycline safely together to treat a rash on your face?

Depends on…: What the rash is. If acute acne flare, the 2 drugs may be used without interaction. (caution: do not take meds with grapefruit juice as that can cause an interaction). If you don't know what the rash is, see your pcp or a dermatologist before using the antibiotic. For ex, poison ivy rash is helped with Medrol (methylprednisolone) dosepak but antibiotic does no good; may create resistant bacteria. ...Read more

How much Azithromycin would be advisable to take after 3months of unresponsive doxycycline to treat infection/ orchitis? What about cipro/ quinolone?

How much Azithromycin would be advisable to take after 3months of unresponsive doxycycline to treat infection/ orchitis? What about cipro/ quinolone?

Here are some. ..: What made you feel unresponsive to antibiotics - by pain or by physical finding of testis or by both? Nowadays, it's extremely unlikely to see STD-related infections not responding to any antibiotics used. After 2 runs failing to antibiotics, one has to think if diagnosis is correct or not. So, analyze the details of onset, degree, duration, interval, & progress of the Sx over timely, and see Doc ...Read more

Will doxycycline treat infection in cartilage piercing if having adverse reactions to levoflaxcin? Dr switched me to Cipro but scared to take bc of reactions to levo. I was prescribed doxycycline at urgent care but was told was by ENT Cipro is better

Will doxycycline treat infection in cartilage piercing if having adverse reactions to levoflaxcin? Dr switched me to Cipro but scared to take bc of reactions to levo. I was prescribed doxycycline at urgent care but was told was by ENT Cipro is better

Doxy probably OK: Some bacteria that cause such infections, such as Pseudomonas, are more likely to respond to ciprofloxacin than to doxycycline. But doxy isn't a bad choice, and if you have had significant side effects with levofloxacin, it may be reasonable to avoid cipro. If there is drainage, it probably can be tested to determine the exact cause. Discuss further with the ENT doc. ...Read more

Is metronidazole, injection of ceftriaxone and zithromycin enough to treat PID not caused by an STI? I'm 2 weeks pregnant so can't take doxycycline.

Is metronidazole, injection of ceftriaxone and zithromycin enough to treat PID not caused by an STI? I'm 2 weeks pregnant so can't take doxycycline.

Here are some. ..: Clinically, the antibiotic treatment you've received should cover all common PID-related bacteria. At this time, you should direct & bring all your existing concern to the treating Doc for analysis, follow-up, modification, etc. Further online chat, I'm afraid, will further confuse you with more anxiety and fear instead of help you. So, keep a close contact with your Doc so to refine the care.... ...Read more

If I have taken doxycycline 2x a day for six days, am I most likely not contagious at that point? I still have 8 more days of pills to take and will.

It depends...: ...on what you are being treated for. If chlamydia or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), you should wait until finishing treatment before having sex. However, it is unusual to treat these STDs for 2 weeks; 7 days of doxy is sufficient and recommended by STD experts, so maybe you're being treated for something else. Check with the doctor or clinic treating you. ...Read more
