Caught cellulitis the day I was finishing antibiotics for strep! Day5 of Duricef, (cefadroxil) have runny nose, low fever&chills. Could it be caused by cellulitis?
Details: You don't "catch" cellulitis. Runny nose + low fever = virus, not related to antibiotic. Does "strep" mean strep throat? You have not described "cellulitis". This is not a stand-alone diagnosis. Exactly where and exactly what symptoms? 90% of "cellulitis" diagnoses by non-dermatologists are wrong. Most cellulitis is caused by staph sensitive to Duricef (cefadroxil). Question this diagnosis and consider another ...Read more
Its been 4 days i had bodyaches along with fever however no sign of a sore throat or or running nose i been taking Advil (ibuprofen) but the bodyaches are back?
See doc: Strep infections can present without a sore throat or runny nose. There are other causes. Fever for 4 days needs to be checked, but do make sure you get a throat culture. Less than half of the cases of strep infections in adults present classically with sore throat. Lots of docs are rigid about complying with guidelines and won't culture without it and miss strep in both kids and adults often. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your toddler's problem. However, his fever rose to 104, he is not eating, he is complaining of pain near his ribs and he has a bad cough. Is he having difficulty breathing or wheezing? There are many possible causes for this type of fever in a toddler; influenza is a common one. The american academy of family physicians recommends that 104 degree fever be evaluated by a physician. I recommend that he be seen. Take care. ...Read more

My son is still running a fever of over 101 and has a cough despite being on antibiotics for 4 days now. Should I be concerned?
Not necessarily: The most likely explanation is that the fever and cough are being caused by one of the many respiratory viruses that are very common this time of year. Antibiotics will not be effective because there is no bacterial infection. It should run its course, but if the fever persists for several more days it is important to have him re-evaluated by his doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had a low grade fever 99.5 and i'm on antibiotics and taking tylenol (acetaminophen) and morton? Why isn't my fever going down?
Fever: You do not necessarily have a fever. A temp of 99.5 f is normal late in the day. If you reach 100 f or fail to get as low as 98.6 f during a 24 hour period you are considered febrile (having fever), but even then it may not be clinically relevant. The question is why are you on antibiotics and what was the diagnosis? If this is viral you certainly don't need these. Hope you are better soon. ...Read more
Child can't rid of strep throat was on amoxil then augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and off fir a couple days and throat hurting again? Will be 3 time in 6wks what to do?
Need culture: Group a strep, the bacteria that causes 'strep throat' is still universally sensitive to pcn. However, other bacteria can cause pharyngitis and acute tonsillitis, as well as many viruses. If child not getting better, would get back with doc and see if you need a full culture or evaluation for other causes such as mono(caused by ebv virus and can sometimes give false positive result strep test). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
