What Antibiotic Can I Take If Im Allergic To Penicillin And I Have A Sore Throat
Sore throat, hurts when i swallow.No fever, im taking meds 4 a uti.Should i tell my dr, so i can get some penicillin, or should antibiotic for UTI help?
Maybe: First of all, this is more likely viral than bacterial so antibiotics may not help. If it is bacterial, then the antibiotics you are taking for the UTI may be adequate for the throat infection, but you need to discuss this with your doctor. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Zithromax or others: Mild throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, irritation, etc... It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep. A primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start non-penicillin antibiotics (such as zithromax, or sometimes Omnicef or keflex). ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

I had strep throat and was put on penicillin for 10 days and finished my last dose a week ago and still have a lesser degree sore throat, i'm concerne?
Sore throat: How was strep diagnosed? If not done by culture it may not have been the cause of the sore throat. There are also some persons who have strep throat, and are simultaneously colonized with staph or other organisms that produce enzymes that destroy penicillin, rendering treatment useless. See your doctor and get re-examined. Good luck. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Before my root canal, I was prescribed Penicillin, in case there was an infection. I had my root canal and stopped the medicines. Today, about five days later, I have sore throat and general malaise. Is it a coincidence?
Sore throat : Tough one to answer. Certainly the pennicilin should not, of itself, cause sore throat. It could very well be a coincidence. It could be some other irritant from the procedure as well. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Is it normal to have bronchitis for over two weeks, even with a weeks worth of penicillin? Still congested, sore throat , cough and lots of mucus.
Yes- try this: Bronchitis often lasts 6 weeks ; is almost always caused by viruses so penicillin ; other antibiotics don't help ; may cause harm. It's irresponsible for docs to prescribe antibiotics for bronchitis! pelargonium sidoides (sold as umcka) is proven to help much more than antibiotics- see http://bit.Ly/1f6rjci i've had tremendous success treating bronchitis with homeopathy- see http://bit.Ly/h97vwf. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Maybe not: Minor sore throat is often from a viral infection which is not affected by antibiotics. If you have a fever and a significant sore throat, you may have strep throat, which needs to be evaluated and tested (cultured) by your physician. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Taking penicillin for wisdom teeth, caught strept. Taking amox for 3 days still sore throat, why?
Healing takes time: It is not unusual for sore throat symptoms to take longer to resolve, especially if the cause of the sore throat is not one that responds to your antibiotics. If the symptoms persist for more than 2 more days, then do get evaluated. Hope that helps. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
