Lymph nodes : Hello SBaldwin. I am unable to check proper dosages of the meds not knowing her weight but I recommend continuing with the current treatment and labs. It looks like your doctor wants to cover any current bacterial infection and check for other causes to include viruses that linger for a while before resolving. For future consults, my direct link is: healthtap.com/vanessanealmd key code PNYTKV. ...Read more

Need exam ASAP!: There are a number of possible causes for these symptoms. It's best that you see a physician right away to see if there is an infection or other condition present. It's not possible to give meaningful advice without an examination. I'm concerned that he feels unwell. Don't try to diagnose this on the internet, it will only confuse and worry you. Sorry could not be of more help. Get well soon ...Read more

Hope u feel better soon! ...Read more

Hello I have recently had swollen lymph nodes in my neck. HIV test negative. Got some amoxicillin. Does that cure all std's or do I need more treatmen?

Hello I have recently had swollen lymph nodes in my neck. HIV test negative. Got some amoxicillin. Does that cure all std's or do I need more treatmen?

Whoa..: Apples and kumquats here, unless oral sex was involved. Cervical (neck) lymph node swelling is pretty common, and UNcommonly caused by very serious diseases. A swollen cervical node isn't seen often with STDs, unless oral sex is involved. Amoxicillin is a poor choice for STD treatment. See: www.cdc.gov/std/tg2015/pocket-guide.pdf for recommended STD treatment recommendations from the pros. Best! ...Read more
