Over The Counter Treatment For Dysentery
Yes and no: Fluoroquinolones including Ofloxacin are indicated to treat multiply resistant shigellosis. However, almost all cases found in United States are susceptible to ceftriaxone. Side effect affecting soft tissues, e.g., tendon rupture, limit the use of "floxacin" in children under 17 years of age.
Kindly advice about proper permanent treatment for shigella amoebic dysentery I am having this problem for the last more 4 - 5 months?
Define "dysentery": "dysentery" is a non-specific term that means there is something wrong with your gut to cause diarrhea. More specifically, the term can be applied to: viral or bacterial gastroenteritis, radiation exposure, eosinophilic disease, tuberculosis involvement, autoimmune problems as with systemic lupus, crohn's disease. Get a clear diagnosis from your doctor before delaying appropriate treatment.
That depends on: Severity of case. In some situations oral rehydration works fine. In more severe cases- IV hydration may be required.
Are there any effective over-the-counter medications to stop diarrhea and vomiting associated with gastroenteritis?
Yes: Imodium (loperamide) a-d is available. Never use in children unless directed by your doctor (hardly any pediatrician will recommend). In older kids (over 12) and adults use cautiously only if diarrhea is watery, with no fever or abdominal pain and is causing dehydration (excessive loss of fluids) and you are not being able to drink enough back up.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm a teenager & I traveled extensively throughout the world. The past 6 months I've had a rash. Over the counter treatment doesn't work. What now?
Rash: Rashes are very difficult to diagnose without some visuals, at least in pictures if not in person. I would recommend seeing a dermatologist. Alternatively, you can try Healthtap Prime and upload some photos.See 1 more doctor answer
No - See a Doctor: No, you need Flagel Pills for the most effective treatment. See your Doctor or the Health Department - you should have a full STD screening if you have been exposed to any STD.
No good otc: Gardnerella or bacterial vaginosis is a common vaginal infection cause by over growth of a bad bacteria or death of good bacterial. It can be affected by spermicide, doucheiing (don't do this!), overenthusiastic cleaning or bad luck. It is easilly treated with oral medication or vaginal suppositories prescribed by a doctor but I would not recommend treating it yourself.See 1 more doctor answer
Antihistamines: Avoiding what you believe to be causing the urticaria (hives) is the best treatment, but sometimes not easily done. Antihistamines can also help greatly, and are available over the counter.
Chronic pain remedy: Chronic pain is best treated using pain management therapies from a pain specialist as well as engaging in alternative therapies such as yoga or tai chi to help with balance, stretching, feldenkrais, physical therapy, high doses of fish oil, arnica, and eating an anti inflammatory diet. Regular acupuncture and massage can help as well.See 2 more doctor answers
Trichomoniasis (?): If you are asking about treatment for trichomoniasis (commonly known as: Trich), a common sexually transmitted disease (STD), there is no over-the-counter treatment available. Trich requires treatment with a specific antibiotic, metronidazole (Flagyl). It is the only drug that should be used to treat trichomoniasis. If you think you may have trich, you should be tested and treated appropriately.See 1 more doctor answer
No: But after good treatment, the best treatment is excellent hygiene and use of just-in-case small doses of the antibiotic cream used to treat it in the first place...After sex and after a loose bm. The acid level of semen encourages the bacteria to grow, and a source of the infection van be a loose bm hard to get clean from.See 1 more doctor answer
Multivitamins: Vitamin deficiency is a cause of angular cheilitis. You may take multivitamins available over the counter. If that does not help, it would be prudent to consult a doctor.
PSORIASIS: Over the counter rx are: emolients, salicylic acid, coal tar ointments, solution or shampoos.
No such animal.: Unless you have very, very mild psoriasis - which might respond to Hydrocortisone cream - nothing available over the counter in the us is going to make much of a dent in your psoriasis. Sorry, but I've been doing this for 30 years and have yet to see an otc product work, other than skin cap, which turned out to have an illegal steroid in it. See a dermatologist; don't waste money on otc treatments.
