Varies: It depends upon what medication you are talking about. In general, however, fastest absorption is the sublingual route, where the medication is placed under the tongue.

Had Bacterial Vaginosis, but it went away a few weeks ago with medication. I now think I have it again, shall I go to the doctors? Or purchase BV gel?

Not very effective: Recurrent BV is very common. Unfortunately, vaginal metronidazole (BV Gel, Metrogel, etc) rarely works. If that's what you were treated with last time, it may be why the problem came back. You should contact your doctor, who probably will want to examine you to confirm the diagnosis. Ask about treatment with metronidazole by mouth. Also have STD testing if not yet done. BV can be a sign of STD. ...Read more

I have had a stye since Halloween and i have gone to the doctors twice and got gel medication and eye drops and neither worked ?

Needs drainage: Most primary care doctors don't drain styes (I do if they can be drained easily). Usually an eye doc can take care of them (but they make you wait 3 weeks total time in most cases). If the stye comes back or worsens it could be something else more dangerous, or just a stye again. Best of luck ...Read more

Is it bad to put oral gel on the wound because of the switches?
