Saw Dr for ear discharge she gave me drops and antibiotic. It's been 2 days on treatment with still slight bloody discharge. How long for this 2 heal?

Since I do not know which of these (or other) is the source/cause, I would recommend you speak with your treating doctor or an ear, nose, throat specialist for a more precise answer. ...Read more

I was treated for trich & a UTI about a week ago. 2000 Flagyl and a little bag of amoxicillin. I now have lime green clumpy discharge. What is it?

There are several bacteria, including pseudomonas (which is resistant to what you have taken) that can produce secondary overgrowth infections. In order to clear it up it may have to be cultured and examined under a microscope. Good luck. ...Read more
