Ever since starting clindamycin 300mg three times a day for sinus and staph ive been sweating alot when moving is this normal ?

Ever since starting clindamycin 300mg three times a day for sinus and staph ive been sweating alot when moving is this normal ?

Not a side effect: I have never heard of this side-effect (SE) from clindamycin, so it's likely there's some other explanation for ur symptoms. Sweat glands can actually be 'trained' if, for example, you are exercising more frequently-u may find you will 'sweat' easier and more frequently since the sweat glands are now 'on board' with your fitness program. I double checked the package insert for this med-no such SE. ...Read more

How long does a staph infection stay in the body?

How long does a staph infection stay in the body?

Until treated: Staphylcoccus aureus is a bad actor. Once it sets up infection in one location it has a propensity to extend itself both locally and systemically.

Could a postoperative staph infection cause calcifications to deposit in my body?

Yes: Calcifications can be attributed to many causes. Any time there is a foreign body within the body, the body's immune system tries to control it by directly killing the foreign body, surrounding & forming a barrier around it, and "remembering" it in the event of a repeat exposure in the future. Part of the healing process may involve forming a calcification, a kind of "internal scar.". ...Read more
