Can the prescription Nitrofurantoin be taken for the sympthoms of earache, sore throat, headache, and skin sore to the touch? I was also chilling twelve hours ago.

Nitrofurantoin is used to treat urinary tract infections. Nitrofurantoin is in a class of medications called antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria that cause infection. Antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections.

That said, I think it would be best to diagnose the underlying causes of your sore skin, headache, sore throat, and ear ache. In my honest opinion, a naturopathic doctor would best suit your needs for all the above symptoms and conditions.

Additionally, I do see some antibiotics being prescribed for ear aches; however Nitrofurantoin is primarily used for UTI's, so you may also want to consider looking into other antibiotics or cost effective natural remedy solutions for this ear infection.

The fact that you have an infection simply means that your immune system has been comprised. This could be related to your diet, stress levels, whether or not you sleep well at night, or other emotional traumas that keep your body and mind in an unbalanced acidic state.

I take this medication all of the time if I have a bacterial infection for my throat & it works pretty well for me. My doctor has prescribed this for me before when I have had strep because I also have IBS and this medication is easier on the digestive track when taken in multiple small doses through out the day. I am also allergic to penicillin. I'm sure this isn't the best med to take, but for the record it has helped clear up other infections for me besides UTI's.

should be avoiding until the UTI is cleared.
