Ear infection not improving on doxycycline, dr suggested prednisone, however, I now have a UTI. Is it safe to start pred?
It's complicated...: First, I am skeptical you developed a UTI while taking doxycycline, which is active against the large majority of UTI bacteria.

You'll need to rely on your doctor to work it out. Good luck! ...Read more
