Also discuss possible underlying causes, especially diabetes. ...Read more

Antibiotics wont hel: If a chalazion is present for more than 3-4 weeks it is unlikely to respond to antibiotics. combination topical agents such as maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) (which require a prescription) and include antibiotic/steriod components may be helpful during the first 3-4 weeks. warm compresses are also extremely helpful. beyond 1month i tend to surgically remove them. eric dessner md ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I take a probiotic to stop a yeast infection? If not, what's the best OTC treatment? Been on antibiotics for 2 weeks & I think that caused it.
Probiotic won't work: If you have had vaginal yeast and have the same symptoms now, you probably can safely treat yourself. A probiotic probably won't work; you need an anti-yeast drug. Look for a product whose active ingredient ends in "azole" (Monistat®, Terazol®, Gyne-Lotrimin® and others). But if in doubt, get advice from the doc that prescribed the antibiotic. If you self treat, call doc if no better in 2-3 days. ...Read more
