I am from Mumbai India. I am having swelling & pain in my left testicle. Please advise me which antibiotic to use? Thank you. ## Hi Raj! The problem you are having needs to be looked at by a doctor.

use of doxycycline 100mg for tick bite

I found a tick embedded in my leg. I had an appointment with a dermatologist and asked about this bite which was red, and was given a 7 day course of antibiotics (doxycycline 100mg).

doxycycline for a toothache

Can I take doxycycline 100mg for a toothache? I'm also taking Lisinopril 20 mg and Bupropion 75mg. ## John Docycline is not a pain reliever it wouldn't have any pain relieving properties.Ibuprophen is excellent for tooth pain it's an OTC med. ## Can I take the antibiotic for a bad tooth that is abscessed with the other two drugs? ## @John, If there's really a bacterial infection present, then killing the infection with an antibiotic makes sense and will probably help alleviate pain that the infection was causing. As to the efficacy of Doxycycline being used for this purpose, I do think there may be better options on the market. However I haven't come across any details suggesting not to take that particular drug combination of Lisinopril, Bupropion and Doxycycline. A...

I am the care giver for my wife and she has been diagnosed with staff infection, 3 small open sores on her butt. (by a PA filling in for our family doctor). The PA prescribed DOXY- CYCL HYCL 100MG TAB.
