Why Do Antibiotics Help With Inflammation
Inflammation is the body's attempt at self-protection; the aim being to remove harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens - and begin the healing process. Inflammation is part of the complex biological response of vascular tissues to harmful stimuli, such as pathogens, ...Read more

Could be Viral: Conjunctivitis could be due to viral infection in which case antibiotics usually do not help and infact may cause even more uncomfortable eyes due to their potentials for allergy. Viral conjunctivitis may run its course and one can benifit from cold compresses and artificial tears. One should try to avoid rubbing the eyes. If symptoms persist, seeing an ophthalmologist is recommend. ...Read more
Can you have an inflammation without having fever? For example, when you have a cold can u take an antibiotic like augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) despite no fever?
No antibiotics: A cold is a viral infection. Antibiotics treat only bacterial infections. Taking any antibiotic when you have a cold is a bad idea. It does absolutely nothing to treat the cold, and puts you at unnecessary risk of side effects from the antibiotic. In addition, bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics because of their inappropriate use to treat viral infections. ...Read more

Re-check with doctor: Serenoa repens (permixon) has been used for the treatment of men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (bph). The drug contains an extract of the dwarf american palm known as serenoa repens. As time goes by, a man's prostate changes, and changes can happen even while on treatment. A urologist can re-evaluate to see if a new medicine or other treatment can help, since symptoms are not going away. ...Read more

Inflamed pharyngitis 30 days now & given antibiotics told it's acute but I've got some spots on back of tongue is this why the inflammations not gone?
May not be bacterial: I would recommend a follow up visit since you may have developed a yeast infection while you were on the antibiotics. Also, many sore throats are caused not by bacteria but by a virus. In this case rest, liquids and analgesics such as Ibuprofen or a sore throat spray containing 1.4% phenol will help you feel better while your body fights off the infection. ...Read more

I have ureaplasma parv. (10^6), HPV 16, uterus ectopia and frequent inflammations. 3 courses of dif. Antibiotics didn't help with parvum. How to heal?
Not U. parvum: Ureplasma parvum is an entirely normal bacteria in the genital tract of healthy people. It is not the cause of any symptoms, including the ones you have. If three different antibiotic courses didn't clear things up, almost certainly no bacterial infection is the problem, but HPV might be the cause of the cervical ectopy, which in turn can cause vaginal discharge. ...Read more

I got a blood in my urine and inflamation. What can I do to heal it faster? I got 1 day antibiotics for it, but im not sure if its enough, pain is big
More antibiotics: I hope you mean 1-a-day antibiotics and not antibiotics for a single day. There are afew antibiotics given as 1-a-day. Your UTI may be due to a resistant organism if you have been taking it for at least three days without relief. In which case you need to go on another antibiotic. Would be a good idea to have aurine culture with drug sensitivities, if not done already. If done check sensitivities. ...Read more

What antibiotic or cream should I used for adversed reaction of aldara (imiquimod) cream on my skin, it was inflammed and painful?
Antibiotic ointment: Aldara (imiquimod) is used, topically, for treatment of warts or superficial skin cancers/precancerous skin lesions. If it is working well, ulceration of the treated skin will result after several weeks. Treatment with topical antibacterials will promote uneventful healing. I usually recommend Bacitracin ointment, polysporin ointment or neosporin ointment. ...Read more
My root canal got infected and I got a cheek inflamation. Igot it re-treated and a lot of draining was done. My cheek isless inflamed now. I am still on antibiotics. Is all ok?
Possibly: When did your dentist last see you? If it was when you were in the condition you are now and he felt comfortaable with you just maintaining the antibiotics. But, I suspect it has been a while and if that is the case, I suggest you return for him to check it out. The antibiotics should have suppressed the infection by now. ...Read more
I have leukopenia probably caused by interferons which I use for MS. Now, I have also teeth inflamation. Which antibiotics does't cause leukopenia?
Immune modulation: May have indeed caused the drop in white cells. Gingivitis can occur with Co Q10 deficiency. (use of B interferon) Make sure your Folate, (folic acid) B12 and B6 levels are normal (CoQ10 won't work if any are low) Consider taking Co Q10 (the antioxidant form). Antibiotics may not be needed if you act quickly. Make sure your doctor is involved in the decision making. ...Read more

Chest Xray revealed inflamation. Diagnosed bronchitis. Prescribed antibiotic. Confused if I should take antibiotic since bronchitis is usually viral?
Bronchitis: You are absolutely correct. This is 95-98% viral or due to chemical exposures. Do not know how to diagnose this by CXR, but it sounds as if you might benefit from obtaining a second opinion. Do not take antibiotics unless there is a proven pathogen for which it is indicated. Good luck. ...Read more
