antibiotics are not sold over the counter...and not all antibiotics kill the same infection so you are best off going to a Dr. if it is in deed an infection. If its not an infection try taking pseudoephedrine which is a nasal decongestant and is sold over the counter Answered by Lindsay Linssen 6 months ago.
The following works for sinus, cold, running nose, sore throat and strep throat, when the throat is hurting and lot of other conditions. The most visible thing about sinus is swelling. In case of cold, sore throat, strep throat also swelling is there but to some less extent then it is visible in sinus. Sinus, cold and sore throat usually happen in the following situations - - Change of season, drinking lot of water after exercises, when u get up in the morning, after swimming, after having first sex, kissing, first time smoking etc. The reason - The body has limited capacity to store water in places other hen cells and in blood systems. When we suddenly drink lot of water, that must be stored in the cells within a short period. If that does not happen the body tries to lose water through frequent urination, running nose, cough etc. This excess water is stored in layers of skin or muscles. This stored water outside cells reduces the cell metabolism drastically. That also causes the immune system to be done causing the bacteria growth. That does not need antibiotics. All it needs is reabsorption of that water in cells or blood system. That is possible only by reducing the water intake temporarily. During winters the cells of our body stores less water. This is evident from frequent loss of water from body throuhurination. Normally. Another thing that needs explanation is - why does sore throat happens in the morning often. The cellular metabolism is at 5 to 10% during sleep. So the excess water stored between layers of skin and muscles causes the metabolism to fall below the minimum threshold limit. That reduces the immune capacity of the body drastically. The same thing happens after swimming the body is heated up and cooled at the same time. It a person allows sweating after a swimming session and does not drink water or does not take a shower in cold water sore throat may not happen. After having first sex, kissing, first time smoking people tend to either overeat, drink lot of water and sleep immediately so sinus or sore throat happens. The easier way out is to allow body to sweat for 1 or 2 hour by increasing the body temperature but not drinking water or other fluids for may be 1 hour after that. But since cell metabolism is low during this period of cold and sinus, a person will seem to be excessively thirsty even after a short session of small exercise. Thru cell metabolism the water is transferred to blood system. If that happens at a rate slower then required rate the cells may overheat causing excessive thirst. The other easy way to control swelling is to give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. In 24 hours there will be no significant dehydration to cause organ failure. But to be double sure one can stay indoors for 24 hours. This helps in lot of other ailments. One can do it when one is indoors. It improves the immune system. It ensures that body's control systems work properly. In 24 hours the reduction in the fluids will be about 3 litres or about 5% of the total body weight of a normal adult. Never the swelling due to sinus or cold and cough is more than 5% of the body volume. During this period of 24 hours the lose of water from the body does not reduce even by 1% to offset reduced water intake. The reduction in loss of body water thru urine or sweating starts after 48 hours in most of people. But to be on safe side giving up water and liquids for 24 hours will do the trick. The reduced swelling will give immediate relief from pain. It will make is much more easier to eliminate the cough thru nose without any pain. That will also improve the blood acid levels by about 10%. This makes changes at the cell level as well. Blood acid levels are the first line of defense against the infections. So swelling gone, pain gone, cough moving out, infections taken care of. Now what remains in the body for the next change of season time. Obviously nothing. So it has already given u long term relief from sinus. But in some cases one may get sinus during next change of season and may have to do this again. The benefits of drinking lot of water is over hyped. So when winter starts to set in, people still force drink more water. Same thing happens when summer is setting in. As soon as summer comfort is there on increases the water intake drastically. But the cells of the body still does not need that excess supply of water. Answered by Alexis Rufi 6 months ago.

If you can't afford to pay for antibiotics, try telling your doctor this. Various pharmaceutical reps are CONSTANTLY hawking their wares to doctors, trying to convince them to prescribe them to patients.

Hello, Antibiotics for Urinary Tract Infections Examples Generic Name Brand Name amoxicillin Dispermox, Larotid amoxicillin and clavulanate Augmentin cefixime Suprax nitrofurantoin Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim Bactrim, Septra How It Works These antibiotics kill the bacteria that commonly cause urinary tract infections (UTIs) in children. Most antibiotics come in pill or liquid form. Some antibiotics may be given as a shot. The doctor may give antibiotics in the vein (intravenously) if your child is younger than 2 to 3 months old, is very ill or nauseated, or has a severe kidney infection. Why It Is Used Antibiotics treat a UTI and prevent complications of infection such as kidney damage. Antibiotics also prevent infections in children who have had or may be at risk for recurrent UTIs. The doctor might prescribe preventive antibiotic therapy if your child has: Yes, hun, it will help your problem but 500 mg 4 x's a day is a lot, make sure you put food in your stomach before the medication. Answered by Bradford Willbanks 6 months ago.
You shouldn't take any medications unless they were specifically prescribed by your doctor for a specific condition. Trimethoprim is most commonly prescribed for the treatment of bladder infections, providing that your immune system is strong and healthy. Not all antibiotics work against all infections so it's important that you speak to your doctor. This will help to prevent you becoming immune to the actions of antibiotics in the future. You may need a different dose as well, depending on the severity of your infection. It's also important to get it checked out to make sure that the infection hasn't soread to your Kidneys (pyelonephritis). Answered by Dahlia Macias 6 months ago.
NO! That is NOT how you take antibiotic. GO TO THE DOCTOR. You need to take antibiotic for 10 days. Then, you need to eat yogurt for 3 days. Ask the doctor to explain to you how antibiotic works. If you do it the way you want, you will ruin your immune system. Till you get to the doctor, drink cranberry juice and water. Answered by Arvilla Mary 6 months ago.

Asked by Dori Pourner 6 months ago.
Buddy you might get on that plane thinking you can hang, but Mono is going to knock you down. What is the usual course and treatment of mono? In most cases of mono, no specific treatment is necessary. The illness is usually self-limited and passes much the way other common viral illnesses resolve. Treatment is directed toward the relief of symptoms. Available antiviral drugs have no significant effect on the overall outcome of mono and may actually prolong the course of the illness. Occasionally, Strep throat occurs in conjunction with mono and is best treated with penicillin or erythromycin (E-Mycin, Eryc, Ery-Tab, PCE, Pediazole, Ilosone). Ampicillin (Omnipen, Polycillin, Principen) and amoxicillin (Amoxil, Dispermox, Trimox) should be avoided if there is a possibility of mono since up to 90% of patients with mono develop a rash when taking these medications. They may then be inappropriately thought to have an allergy to penicillin. Antiviral medications have not been shown to be of benefit in treating the symptoms of mono. For the most part, supportive or comfort measures are all that is necessary. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) can be given for fever and any headache or body aches. A sufficient amount of sleep and rest is important. The throat soreness is worst during the first five to seven days of illness and then subsides over the next seven to 10 days. The swollen, tender lymph nodes generally subside by the third week. A feeling of fatigue or tiredness may persist for months following the acute phase of the illness. It is recommended that patients with mono avoid participation in any contact sports for at least four weeks after the onset of symptoms to prevent trauma to the enlarged spleen. The enlarged spleen is susceptible to rupture, which can be life-threatening. Cortisone medication is occasionally given for the treatment of severely swollen tonsils or throat tissues which threaten to obstruct breathing. Patients can continue to have virus particles present in their saliva for as long as 18 months after the initial infection. When symptoms persist for more than six months, the condition is frequently called "chronic" EBV infection. However, laboratory tests generally cannot confirm continued active EBV infection in people with "chronic" EBV infection. I've been through Basic Training and AIT. Your effort is going to have to be 100%, which you will not have for maybe a few more months. Was your Basic Training and AIT split up? If it's just AIT, depending on your MOS, you might be able to wing it..if it's Basic Training and AIT, get a doctor note and postpone it, or if your MOS has anything to do with heavy physical requirements (grunt, PJ, special forces, green beret)...postpone. Answered by Edward Bernath 6 months ago.
You will hopefully feel better by then, but it's doubtful that you'll be fully recovered. Some patients take a couple of months. On top of that, some mono patients get an enlarged spleen. This can be damaged by heavy activity. Bottom line. Talk to your doctor and a sergeant / officer in your chain of command. Answered by Cristine Lanoue 6 months ago.
The best cure for stripthroat?
Asked by Lien Karr 6 months ago.
You need antibiotics for strep throat. There is no other cure. See a Doctor. If a strep infection is detected, an antibiotic is prescribed. Antibiotics commonly used to treat strep throat infections include, among others, Penicillins [amoxicillin, (Amoxil, Dispermox, Trimox) , Macrolides, such as erythromycins (E-Mycin, Eryc, Ery-Tab, PCE, Pediazole, Ilosone)], azithromycin (Zithromax), and clarithromycin (Biaxin), and Cephalosporins [cephalexin (Keflex, Keftabs, Biocef )]. It is important to take the full course of antibiotics as prescribed and not to stop the medication when symptoms resolve. Prematurely discontinuing antibiotics can result in the infection being inadequately treated with potentially adverse consequences. Why is it very important to detect and treat a strep throat? The condition known as rheumatic fever is a disease that affects the joints and heart and is caused by untreated or inadequately treated strep infection. Rheumatic fever can cause damage to the heart valves. Fortunately, it is now uncommon in the current antibiotic era. Another complication that can occur after inadequately treated strep throat is a kidney inflammation called glomerulonephritis. This can cause decreased kidney function, and blood and protein in the urine. Answered by Manda Alamia 6 months ago.
mobabe is right; you absolutely need a course of antibiotics to cure strep throat. You don't want to mess with it because the consequences of untreated strep can actually be fatal. (Have you ever read a romance or historical novel where someone died of the "putrid sore throat"? Guess what that was.) However, if you're on antibiotics already and want something to soothe your throat try any teas, although lemon and honey or liccorice are particularly good, and choloraseptic or another throat numbing over the counter spray or lozenge.

prednisone is an anti inflammatory steroid. they are frequently very strong, and act particularly speedily.

Asked by Tifany Houston 6 months ago.
If you are in too much pain to read all this, to straight to "SOLUTION" below... I rarely advise this but this is one of those times when you really have to go see a doctor ASAP. You have an ear infection. This is one of the most painful things there is, and it's not going to go away on its own. If the pain just started, it's probably already pretty unbearable. I hate to tell you this, but until you get the right treatment, which can only be obtained with a prescription (hence my advice to see a doctor), the pain will keep getting worse and worse and worse each day you wait. It's impossible to imagine how painful it can get. I know because I went through it. I had no insurance so all I could do was wait. I waited 2 months with my head stuck between 2 pillows. It got so bad I remember wishing I was dead. First it was one ear, then the other one got infected too. Pure hell. Still I was lucky to come out of it without too much irreversible damage. But I now have what is known as "swimmer's ears". If half a drop of water enters one of my ears during a shower for example, there is almost 100% chance it will get infected, so I have to wear waterproof ear plugs and to be on the safe side, I put a drop of rubbing alcohol in my ears after any contact with water because it makes any leftover water in the ear canal, which is where the infection starts, evaporate. A friend of mine got infected after diving repeatedly into a pool and even though he got treated pretty quickly, he lost almost all of his hearing on the infected ear, and it will never come back. Many people become completely deaf. And worse comes to worse, think of how close your ear canal is to your brain... SOLUTION: Go to your doctor today. Tell them it's an emergency. If you don't have insurance, go straight to emergencies in a good hospital. You need to get a prescription for antibiotics, internal antibiotics. If, like me, you are allergic to Penicillin and/or Amoxicillin (like Amoxicot, Amoxil, Dispermox, Moxilin to name a few...), or if you are not sure, don't risk it. Ask your doc about Azithromycin (brand name: Zithromax). It's the best one for the job. It will take the pain away in a matter of hours. Topical antibiotics (Rx ear drops) can help too, but are not sufficient. Don't waste your money on OTC drugs or "alternative" meds, none of them will work for this. This is the one and only solution for your problem, but it's extremely effective. I hope you give it a shot. If you do, please let me know how things went. Thanks and feel better.
