If you have a tooth infection and have been taking antibiotics for a day is it normal for it to still be swollen?
Yes, but if it doesn't get better in another two or three days, call your doctor and let them know.
Antibiotics as a treatment for a tooth infection is only a temporary solution. As soon as you stop taking the antibiotic, the infection is likely to return. This because antibiotics do not treat the cause of the infection (decay or gum disease). The cause of the infection needs to be addressed with definitive treatment.
Is it normal to get a thick creamy discharge while taking antibiotic's.And should you go and get the over counter yeast infection medicines?
It is usually OK to get a flu vaccine when using antibiotics; there is no drug interaction problem. However, if you are taking antibiotics, then you must have a bacterial infection. If your infection is still acute - and you have ongoing symptoms such as a high fever - you may want to consult your health-care professional to be sure that your body will be able to tolerate the immune response needed to create immunity…
Yes, antibiotics can effect vaginal odor , either by causing secretions to smell like the antibiotic or by causing the over growth of yeast. Yeast is normally found in the vagina but when taking antibiotics for an infection the bad bacteria and protective bacteria are both killed off, making a prime environment for yeast colonies to grow out of control, causing the tender tissues to become irritated and swollen.
Yes, because antibiotics are not effective on viruses. The Swine Flu (A-H1N1/09 virus) is unaffected by antibiotics and would still be transmissable. Antibiotics are usually only given to someone with a virus if they have already gotten or are considered to be at risk of getting a secondary bacterial infection along with the viral infection. Antibiotics are used to kill bacteria and treat bacterial infections.
If you cut your finger and take antibiotics for the infection do the antibiotics play a role in bleeding?
NO. Antibiotics, as in this instance have does not affect the bodies coagulation (clotting) abilities. As a reult, it will not impact on "bleeding", be it healing faster or slower. All that will happen as a result of taking anti-biotics, is that any infection that had entered your body via the open wound will be killed.
Antibiotics are used to fight bad bacteria/infection, although they just attack all cells in the body both good and bad. It is important to take antibiotics as prescribed and to take the entire dose. If you do not take the whole prescription, the antibiotics will attack only the good cells and leave your body more susceptible to another infection or illness. You can also find probiotics and a prescription is not required for taking them…
Antibiotics are ineffective in this case because they fight bacteria, not viruses. Taking antibiotics for a viral infection can lead to an antibiotic resistant infection that is harder to treat, as well as other harmful side effects. The rate of drug resistant infections is on the rise in hospitals, so please resist the urge!
My doctor told me it would be okay after the infection cleared up. I was given a 7-day prescription for antibiotics, so if everything looks normal after that I would suppose it would be okay when you are done taking antibiotics. Of course, when you go see the dentist to get the tooth seen about, they may want you to not smoke while it heals, too.
You had your period for two days instead of the normal 5 days two days before it came you had sharp abdominal cramps could you be pregnant you are taking antibiotics for a TB infection since July?
Many people in the world think that the only solution for a bacterial infection is antibiotics which is not true, if they were educated that if you have the infection long enough (and if it is not very strong) then you can become immune meaning that the antibiotics would be wasted. As well as this if antibiotics are perscribed then if people do not take the full course as instructed by their GP then the…
Infections that occur after primary infection are called "opportunistic" and may take advantage of a weakened immune system to also appear. The body carries many types of organisms simultaneously, and often men and women may be given two types of antibiotics to be taken together, such as amoxicillin and metronidazole. ---- Excellent answer above, and I would like to add that when a person is taking an antibiotic for a primary infection (not only STD's)…
If your child has been prescribed an antibiotic and continues to run a high fever (> 103 F), one of two things are going on: 1. either the bacterial infection for which the antibiotic was prescribed is not taking effect or 2. the child has a concomitant viral infection, in which only symptomatic care would suffice. Remember, antibiotics do not cure viral infections.
YES! In fact getting the offending tooth out of your mouth will result in the infection going away faster. The only time a tooth should not be taken out in the presence of an infection is when the gum tissue around wisdom teeth is infected. These should be treated with antibiotics first to avoid spreading the infection into the neck.
