was on amox clv for cat bite and now have itching and burning in pee and poop area
I was on anti biotic for cat bite and now I have itching and burning around the rectum and pee hole. Can I use premarin crème down there? Or can triamcinolone crème be used. also I applied the premarin there and now I don't have to wear pads for incontinence for a few days. Is that good? I don't have to urinate as often. Did do something wrong by trying this or have I just found a CURE for bladder incontinence. Any advice or info would be so appreciated. Thank you ## Hello, Dotty! How are you? It sound like you've developed a yeast infection from the antibiotic and will most likely need an antifungal medication to clear it up. Some are available over the counter, but please check with your doctor to make sure it is safe for you to take. And please, do not apply any...

Cost Effective Hormone Therapy with Extra Benfits
I had a total hysterectomy in 2000 at 44 years old. My GYN did not prescribe Premarin until the signs of menopause were apparent. I've been on Premarin for 6 years. Though it worked very well to keep the night sweats and mood swings at bay, it's become INCREASINGLY expensive. My doctor provided me with options such as a patch (something called Vi Vance, I think.) Horrible...I was on the phone, begging for the Premarin. Well, 3 mos. ago I went in for my check up and he gave me samples of Elestrin. It has worked so well for me. Not only are my night sweats and mood swings kept at bay, but at age 57 my libido has truly come alive again, as if I was a 20 something! For those of you looking for an alternative to the very expensive Premarin, ask you doctor about Elestrin. ## Hi, Mallo...

c-triest
would like moreinformation on this drug. Is it bio-equivalent to Premarin? ## For anyone else looking for such information, they both contain estrogens, but without knowing the dosage, I can't say if they are completely the same. And these are synthetic hormones, so there are many risks associated with them, especially for older women and for smokers. Additionally, it isn't safe to take them, without also taking some type of Progesterone. And due to the risks, I strongly urge everyone to explore their other options first, such as using the natural bio-identical hormones. Are there any comments or questions?

Premarin/hair loss?
I'm experiencing a significant amount of hair loss at age 71 which has been going on for a year or so. I use 1/2 gram of Premarin vaginal cream once weekly. Has anyone else experienced hair loss due to this drug? ## Premarin is an Estrogen hormone. It is very hard to say whether the hair loss could be related to a health condition, the hormones or age and since this site is not medical professionals, we can't even begin to guess. Have you tried asking your doctor about it? Some women do naturally lose their hair with age, just like men do. ## I am experiencing bloating when not taking it, stomach cramps, shortness of breath and it looked like I passed a clot recently after severe stomach pain and burning intercourse. Should I stop taking elrredin - I went to mexico because I hav...
