I Am Allergic To Penicillin And I Have Tonsillitis What Should I Do If Surgery
Alternatives: There are plenty of non-penicillin alternatives that can be used; Erythromycin is one of the most common. If you really need to be treated with a penicillin derivative, your allergist can desensitize you prior to starting the antibiotic. But it is always best to use an alternative so that you don't run the risk of having a penicillin reaction.See 1 more doctor answer
I am on clarithromycin for tonsillitis as allergic to penicillin and am experiencing a bit of chest tightness and light headed, is this a side effect?
If you are allergic to penicillin, what would be your preferred drug to treat tonsillitis/pharyngitis?
I've been told I have bacterial tonsillitis, allergic to penicillin, been on clarithromycin for 7 days, still not gone What should I do?
Tonsillitis: clarithromycin should take care of streptococcal pharyngitis (tonsillitis), which is the most common cause for that infection, however, other organisms can also infect the tonsils, viral, fungal or other bacteria. You need to see your doctor again for re-evaluation, probablyyou will need to see an ENT specialist, after ruling out other causes as infectious mononucleosis, best wishes
Bacteria resistance: Tonsillitis can have different causes. Antibiotics are indicated for tonsillitis with a positive culture for strep. Some bacteria are resistant to penicillin causing antibiotic treatment failure. If the symptoms have not resolved after appropriate antibiotic therapy then re-check is indicated. Perhaps the cause is not bacterial.
I am on penicillin 2000mg for tonsillitis. It's now my fourth day on them and I can smell it in my urine, is this normal?
Entirely normal: Penicillin and related drugs (ampicillin, amoxicillin, and others) have a characteristic strong odor, and are excreted in the urine. Therefore, strong urine odor is normal when taking penicillin. No problem, nothing to worry about. But if you remain concerned, discuss it with your doctor.
What do you suggest if my child has tonsillitis and has been precribed penicillin one 5 ml spoonful four times a dayis it suposed to be watery?
Not usually: Liquid penicillin is usually thick and pink. If there is a concern about the quality of your medication, talk to your pharmacist or physician.
I have had tonsillitis (diagnosed on symptoms, not testing), which responded well to penicillin. Does this rule out potential HIV exposure as a cause?
Got bacterial tonsillitis + have been given penicillinV, I haven't collected penicillin + has started to feel better should I still get the penicillin?
Bacterial tonsilliti: A documented bacterial tonsillitis should be treated with antibiotics to eradicate the infection. While you feel better, I recommend revisiting your physician to establish that the tonsillitis spontaneously improved.
I have tonsillitis and I have been on penicillin for 5 days, I had blood in phlegm last night and this morning, is this normal? I'm worried
Recommend chest xray: Any blood in the sputum is worrisome. Please have your doctor order a chest xray for you.
I have had tonsillitis for 3 months, 8 lots of antibiotics/penicillin injections 2weeks ago, now having3more. Why isn't it going away? Immune disorder?
Chronic tonsillitis: Hopefully I understand your question correctly, but I think you're saying you are having chronic tonsil issues, perhaps with pain or sore throat or bad breath or swallowing issues. This could mean the tonsils are chronically infected with "biofilms" and that you may need to be evaluated for tonsillectomy. Other issues like reflux or masses should also be evaluated for at that appointment.
I have tonsillitis so am taken penicillin, I have a migraine and my tablets for migraines contain aspirin is that ok?

Was able to take penicillin as a kid for tonsillitis. Had one reaction of a rash when I was 10. Is this an allergy?
Possibly: Most people with this history will not react when exposed 20 years later. But some of them will get a rash again.
Can I take azythromocin 500 1 for the 3 days for an Sti and Penicillin 250 2 4 times a day for 10 days for tonsillitis at the same time?
Hello have tonsillitis and have been put on penicillin two tablets four times daily without food, my urine is a florecent. Yellow is this normal?
Don't worry: You might even smell the antibiotic in your urine. The color is usually related to your level of hydration. The clearer the better. If you are fighting an infection it is best to drink lots and lots of fluids. You will be helping your body fight the infection and you will feel better. Most people are somewhat dehydrated normally. When sick, they tend to drink less, and this makes things worse.
I was given penicillin yesterday due to tonsillitis but have been sick twice today is that normal? I am also 3 months late on my period I need help!
Vomiting: Get a pregnancy test. Get your doc to write for Flonase to use at night, the steroid turns your post nasal drip into an anti inflammatory. Dink electrolyte fluid, 2 Aleve 2x per day and zantac generic at 150 mg. If you are 12 weeks pregnant the worst of the nausea is behind you. You will get past it but do the basics and see if your pregnant; if not it is unsealed to your tonsils.
I have tonsillitis and have been taking penicillin antibiotics for it but my urine has a very strong smell like the medication but it's very dark, help?
Zithromax: Azithromycin (zithromax) is a good option for streptococcal tonsillitis. There is some cross-reactivity between penicillins and cephalosporins (such as keflex), and these would not be my first choice. Many infections are caused by viruses, and in this situation antibiotics are not effective.See 1 more doctor answer
