How Long Does It Take To Get Rid Of Gonorrhea
I read that gonorrhea is no longer treatable with antibiotics. Now what will people do if they get gonorrhea? Does the body get rid of it eventually?
False information: Gonorrhea is still effective treated with antibiotics. What you may be referring to is the fact that some oral antibiotics which use to be effective against gonorrhea, are meeting resistant strains. The treatment of choice for gonorrhea is an antibiotic injection (ceftriaxone). Other options are zithromax or doxycycline. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Gonorrhea is caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhea. Anyone who has any type of sex can catch gonorrhea. The infection can be spread by contact with the mouth, vagina, penis, or anus. The bacteria grow in warm, moist areas of the body, including the tube that carries urine out of the body (urethra). In women, the bacteria may be found in the reproductive tract (which includes the fallopian tubes, uterus, and cervix). The bacteria can even ...Read more
Ceftriaxone, others: Duplicate question, same answer: Azithromycin by itself is not used for gonorrhea treatment unless other first-line treatments cannot be given, such as drug allergy. When used for gonorrhea, a 2 gram dose of AZM is needed (vs. 1 gram for chlamydia). Has persistent gonorrhea been professionally diagnosed? If so, I would recommend ceftriaxone plus doxycycline. Discuss with your doctor or clinic ...Read moreGet help now ›
Ceftriaxone, others: Azithromycin alone is not recommended for gonorrhea treatment unless there is a reason that other first-line treatments cannot be given, such as drug allergy. When used for gonorrhea, a 2 gram dose of AZM is needed (compared with 1.0 g for chlamydia). Has persistent gonorrhea been professionally diagnosed? If so, I would recommend ceftriaxone plus doxycycline. Discuss with your doctor or clinic ...Read moreGet help now ›
It is a first: Generation cephalosporin (keflin, keflex); not the official recommended drug, and there is ample cross-allergy with penicillins that it would not be a good substitute. I believe high dose, parenteral (injected) penicillin remains drug of choice. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Asking 4 Impossible: You cannot. Especially now that there is a brutal drug resistant version of gonorrhea sweeping the western world. Gonorrhea treatment now requires a shot and there are no pills to treat it. In many places in the U.S. There are std clinics and public health clinics that can help you get this problem completely and accurately treated. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Be careful please: As of 2010 injectable Ceftriaxone appears to be one of the few effective antibiotics. Because of increasing rates of antibiotic resistance local susceptibility patterns need to be taken into account when deciding on treatment. Many antibiotics that were once effective including penicillin, tetracycline and fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended because of high rates of resistance. Thanks. ...Read moreGet help now ›
I've been tested for gonorrhea, herpes and HIV and the results came back negative. I'm wondering how would i get rid of peeling skin on my penis?
Not an STD: Welcome to HealthTap. Thanks for your question. None of these STDs (nor any other) cause "peeling skin". Even if one of your STD tests had been positive, it would not explain this symptom. Any number of non-STD skin conditions could be possible. See a clinic or doctor for professional evaluation. Stay relaxed in the meantime; probably it isn't serious. ...Read moreGet help now ›
How long would it take to get rid of gonorreah after taking 1 gram of azymoxilyn and 500 mg of tavanic .
A long long time...: It might take a long long time to get rid of gonorrhea with those two drugs because over the years, gonorrhea has become resistant to penicillin drugs (amoxicillin is a penicillin) and resistant to fluoroquinilones (tavanic is levofloxacin, a fluoroquinilone). What it really means is that the two antibiotics might not work at all unless the infection is known to be not resistant through lab tests. ...Read moreGet help now ›
