I had a cervical infection and treated with doxycycl hyc 14 days but I still have burning and now itching with little things sticking out on my vagina?
Yeast infection?: Doxycycline (Doxycyl®) can trigger yeast infections by suppressing normal bacteria and allowing yeast to grow and your symptoms are typical (except I don't know about the "little things sticking out"). See the doctor who prescribed the treatment. I hope you also were checked for STDs, especially gonorrhea and chlamydia, the main causes of cervicitis or "cervical infection". Read more
I have a fairly bad infection in my upper left gum line, what would be the best over the counter treatment I could get? I don't have insurance...
There aren't any: Gum infections can't be cured with pills, ointments, snake oil, emollients, or salves. Gum infections are very serious, destroying gum tissue and the underlying bone that supports the teeth. Contact a gum specialist, a Periodontist, and ask about payment options.
