How many days after finishing antibiotics does it take for UTI symptoms to go away? I felt soreness go away but now it's back.

How many days after finishing antibiotics does it take for UTI symptoms to go away? I felt soreness go away but now it's back.

See doctor: Where is your soreness? Abdomen or back? Were you originally tested for a UTI, or was it diagnosed over the phone/by history. Usually your symptoms should improve by the time you finish your antibiotic course. If symptoms return, you may be resistant to the antibiotic, or it is not a UTI. I'd recommend seeing your doctor and consider getting a urine culture. Best wishes. ...Read more

Problem in nose?: Sinus infections often relate to inadequate air passage to the nose.

Had tonsillitis tried to treat it on my own. Most pus patches went away except one. Tonsils still swollen and it's been like 3 weeks. Why wont go away?

Had tonsillitis tried to treat it on my own. Most pus patches went away except one. Tonsils still swollen and it's been like 3 weeks. Why wont go away?

Severe infection: Tonsils can become severely infected and may fail to respond totally to even anti-biotic therapy - that's why so many people have to have them removed. I hope you did not self-prescribe the Amoxicillin - it's not a good idea to do that and could make your health problems into the future harder to treat. See a doctor to get that last bit taken care of. ...Read more

So I had a UTI. amoxicillin 10 days. Didn't work. Went to ER bc of lots of blood & kidney pain. Now 6 days on cephalexin. When does back pain go away?

Kidney stone: If you are having ongoing pain 6 days into your second antibiotic, either the bacteria is resistant to keflex, or you have a second issue going on as well like a kidney stone that could cause the blood in your urine and the pain. If kidney stones were not excluded in your prior evaluations, they should be looked for. Have your doctor check the culture results from your previous visits. ...Read more
