Old Blood In Urine Due To Strep Throat Infection
Sexually active last Saturday. During the days i started to see clear discharge. Then yesterday i saw blood in urine only once . Possible infection?
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Can levofloxin be used to treat a strep throat infection? Are there better choices? I am allergic to penicillin and tetracylinces.
Antibiotics: For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider tylenol (acetaminophen) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day. ...Read more
I've recently had a nasty strep throat infection. I've been taking phenoxymethylpenicillian and now I have a stomache ache that would kill a dog.?
Hello, 6 years old girl have been through a throat infection , so she took amoxicillin but her urine turned dark (cola colored ) what is the cause ??
Dr. can check today: Dark, cola-colored urine after a strep throat infection means a trip to the doctor today. Strep throat and strep skin infections can cause kidney damage, which is a bad problem sometimes, but is a self-resolving disorder most of the time (resolves over several weeks). The doctor will order blood tests and urine tests, and will keep an eye on the high blood pressure and water retention. ...Read more
Actually yes: The strep germ can find its way to other body areas. It is not uncommon to get a perianal strep infection so it is not impossible to have a vaginal strep infection.... ...Read more
Does taking treatment for throat infection put my baby more at risk for my Group B Strep? I'm a carrier. Abx don't cover GBS can they make it stronger
So the usual recommendation is that you get tested for Group B strep between 35-37 weeks of your pregnancy. If you test positive, they will give you IV antibiotics that cover GBS during labor because the GBS transmission to the baby occurs during childbirth. Generally speaking, if an antibiotic doesn't cover GBS, it won't stimulate it to become "stronger". ...Read more

My son had a throat infection nearly 3 weeks ago and went for bloods 3 days ago his esr was raised but all over bloods was ok, what could cause this?
Had a throat infection. 4 months later still hav large tonsils no pain. swabbed it myself as dr dismissed me! found group a strep. Is Treatment needed?
No: Antibiotics are given to prevent Rheumatic Heart Disease(RHD), NOT to cure the sore throat. At best they may reduce the duration of symptoms by 16 hours. The incidence of Rheumatic Fever(RF) in the U.S. is one in a million cases of strep throat. Only one out of three patients with RF develop RHD. For every three million antibiotic Rx's only one case of RHD is prevented. **See my comments below: ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I want to know if Levaquin treats strep throat or bacterial pharyngitis since I'm allergic to penicillin and resistant to biaxin (clarithromycin)?.
Not a good choice: Levaquin is a broad spectrum antibiotic and usually preferred for more serious infections. Strep throat is usually still amenable to most first generation antibiotics. Being allergic to penicillin suggests u shd try a cephalosporin which shd help. Resistant to Biaxin (clarithromycin) is unlikely and erythromycins may still work. Relatively safer medications like clindamycin also exist. ...Read more
I saw a doctor yesterday and was diagnosed with pharyngitis. Still waiting for strep throat culture to come back. Pain is worst. Can hardly swallow.?
Can be other things.: Strep is not the only cause of pharyngitis. Herpes simplex, chlamydia, ebv, corynebacterium diptheriae, and many others can also cause it. That is one reason why the strep check swab is done, as well as a strep culture. Your doctor should be able to do this/should have done this rapid check so you can start treatment if positive. See your doctor soon if it gets worse for empiric treatment. ...Read more
If progressive...: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid ; pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, ; even a higher risk of throat cancer. Impedance ph testing with a symptom diary can best characterize your lpr. ...Read more
