Accurate diagnosis?: The question is how was typhoid diagnosed? If by culture, then maybe it is resistant to the antibiotic prescribed. Another possibility is that you're getting better slowly (a temperature chart would be helpful). If no culture was done or the culture was negative, then maybe it's not typhoid. ...Read more

About three weeks ago I was on antibiotics for bronchitis. Or phneumonia. I still have a violent cough am extremely tired and now have lime greephlegm?

Still infected: The history of continuing cough with the discolored phlegm makes me concerned that you may be only partially treated. I would check with your doctor and consider another course of antibiotics and would choose a different class of antibiotic if in fact another course is to be prescribed as you may have a resistant organism to the first one used. ...Read more

The immune system...: ...is naturally suppressed during pregnancy (so you can tolerate and not reject the "foreign" baby and placenta in there), often with increased chance of colds and skin infections. Hormonal changes also can affect susceptibility to urinary tract and vaginal infections. Discuss with your obstetrician if infections seem especially severe or frequent of if you remain concerned. ...Read more

Can a sinus infection get worse before it gets better while taking antibiotics? Runnier nose, more dizziness, more fatigue, face is tingly and more sinus pressure.

Need diagnosis: The gold standard for a diagnosis of rhino-sinusitis is a cat scan. As I have stated many times on health tap, viral infection predominates as a cause of a runny nose leading to a sinus infection.

Antibiotic may not help. ...Read more
