Ask your doctor for informative brochues that you can read with your boyfriend when you tell him this news or your doctor would be happy to meet with you together. Couples can still have a long full relationship when one partner has the herpes virus...Just be educated. ...Read more

I tested positive for tonsilitius they gave me a shot in my butt, how long does it take to start working?

1-2 days: You should start to feel better from the intramuscular penicillin shot they probably gave you (that's what the shot in the butt usually is) in 1-2 days assuming you have something that it treats. If your infection is actually viral or due to a bacteria other than group A strep, it will not respond to the antibiotics. In that case you should follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Trichomonas: Trichomonas can be transmitted orally. First of all the fact that he gave you trichomonas is worrisome. This is a sexually transmitted disease, meaning presumably someone other than you gave it to him. Therefore if you are going to continue having a sexual relationship with him you should protect yourself by having your boyfriend wear condoms at all times (including vaginal, oral, and anal). I also recommend you get complete std testing.
Your partner needs to be treated and you can go ahead and request treatment again or your doctor may want to repeat testing.
Take care. ...Read more

Fluoxetine dosage: I would double-check with the pharmacy and with your doctor to see whether the dosage had been changed. Dosage increases with fluoxetine can cause anxiety sometimes, on a short-term basis as your body gets used to the new dosage. ...Read more

On top of that, it is so prevalent that you may end up with it from sources you wouldn't expect. It may be the worst disease to try and peg infidelity on. ...Read more

My pet cat gave me a scratch does it cause rabies? Is it a carrier

Rabies in cats: Hi. Almost any mammal can be infected with, and transmit, rabies. Rabies is transmitted in saliva. However, cats lick their paws, so it may be possible to get rabies from the scratch of an infected cat. Is the cat behaving differently? Salivating a lot? Avoiding water?
