Auroflam mx side effect treatment

My wife was prescribed this medicine for use after seeing the dentist. She got a lot of stomach aches and now her lips have developed a rash that hurts. What can we do? She stopped using it for about seven days now. The stomach ache has stopped but the rash on the lips are still there and not going away. She went to the pharmacist and they said to drink lots of water. Any suggestions please? ## Hello, Micah! How are you and your wife? A rash on the lips like that is usually due to a herpes simplex virus, which is easy to catch and nothing to really worry about, it should clear up on its own after a couple weeks. However, there is no cure and it will likely recur a couple of times a year. While the rash is still active, she should see her doctor to have a culture done to confirm if that...

am not feeling any relief from the pain for shingles have taken 4 last day and a half as presribed

Have shingles,took 4 hydroco/acetaminop 5-325mg tab qua in last 2 days as prescribed have not had any relief from excruciating pain. When should I get some relief from pain? ## Hello, Rayna! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry that you're so miserable! The good news is that once is clears up, Shingles doesn't usually recur! Something topical might help a bit more, if used in conjunction with the pills. There are things available over the counter, such as Dermoplast and others that are sold for sunburn and such. If your doctor says it's okay for you to use one, then they can even prescribe something, or your pharmacist can help you find something to try. That problem with herpes viruses is that they are a skin condition, so they are topical and while you can take an oral ...

Zyclara

I used Zyclara as directed for 2 weeks, the last 4 or 5 days on my cheeks. It peeled as I expected but left some scaring on 1 cheek, and both cheeks turned bright red. The redness did not go away in the following 2 weeks so my Dr told me to stop the 2nd treatment that was to begin Nov 28, 2019. Now 2 months lated the cheeks are just as red after Oracea 40mg and 2 different Rx creams with zero results. What now? Am I stuck with red cheeks forever? ## I also used Zyclara on my face as directed for 2 weeks on, then 2 weeks off. Had a few scabby red marks, but those faded before I began the second round of cream on June 14. Overnight, my face was full of red spots, much more reaction than the first time, which is "unusual" according to my doctor. I stopped on the 19th as I developed...

How many hours apart is 5 times a day?

My mom was given Acyclovir 800 mg to take 5 times a day. What does that mean??? ## 24/5=4.8 hours or 288 minutes or 4 hours & 48 minutes ## Your math is right, but should we take the number of waking hours and divide by 5 rather than the entire 24 hour period? So accounting for sleep, 16 hours awake / 5 times = 3.2, so about every 3.5 hours? Update - I looked up the Acyclovir dosage guidelines on DailyMed, and it states "800 mg every 4 hours orally, 5 times daily for 7 to 10 days." ... So it seems like somewhere in the middle of both of our answers lol

Aldara (imiquimod)

Topical anti-tumor medication ## What is aldara used for? What are the side effects? ## My GP is pressuring me to use Aldara on multiple skin cancers on arms and legs caused by autoimmune meds eg Azathioprine. I have resisted so far but because of the numbers, he is saying “ I can’t keep chopping these out there are too many” The specialist will not reduce or stop the Aza even though my blood readings are very good.

Ampitrex Ampicilina 500mg to treat STI

Is this medication good for a situation where you might have a venereal disease (STI)? ## Hello, Cw! How are you? It depends on which STI the person is infected with, this antibiotic may not be appropriate to treat all, thus it should only used if prescribed by one's doctor. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Aldara permanent nerve damage

2 and a half years I have suffered from taking Aldara. The muscle and nerve damage has disabled my left arm. My hips, knees, elbows, have all been compromised. I suffer gland and throat swelling when bitten by an insect. I have lost 80% of my physical strength. I lose consciousness from time to and pass out, nerve damage is severe. ## Hi Darren, Sorry to hear about your situation with Aldara. Have you taken any sort of legal action or visited a doctor regarding these side effects? I would like to offer more helpful advice, but it's not clear on what type of information you are seeking or asking for. I found several articles on the potential side effects of this drug and I would certainly agree that it's not something that should be taken lightly. My last question is, why would y...

Terrasil anti warts

where can i get terrasil her in philippine? Terrasil can cure a genital warts? Almost 3 yrs i suffered this kind of warts. ## You can purchase Terrasil online at aidanceproducts.com ## There is actually not cure for the HPV that causes genital warts. Once you are infected with this virus, you will have it for the rest of your life and the risk of infecting a sex partner is always present. There are treatments that can help reduce the occurrence of warts. Have you consulted a doctor?

The best thing to do would be to see your doctor to discover what has caused the rash and find out what the appropriate treatment would be.

Valacyclovir with Ibuprofen

I've been searching everywhere for an answer to this, but does anybody know if it is okay to take Advil with Valacyclovir? My wife's gotten a headache (a reported side effect) and is really wanting to take a pain medication. I have read that individuals should check with their doctor before taking Valacyclovir if they are taking NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen, but I can't seem to find a definite answer if one Advil will be harmful. ## Ibuprofen is not specifically listed as a drug which interacts with Valacyclovir (meaning it is not implicitly described as dangerous to take together with it, whereas other drugs have been mentioned). This does not mean that you shouldn't double check with your doctor or pharmacist, but she should be good to take an Advil, as lo...

Is Addyi the female Viagra that women have been waiting for?

Lately, Addyi has been taking strides to position itself as a sensational new alternative to Lady Era and effectively lay claim to the hailed title, "female Viagra". You might be wondering why a medication like Addyi is even referred to as "female Viagra", but some people do believe that's this is because Viagra has arguably set the global benchmark for a consistently potent and compelling product [insert exclamation point]. It may be true that Viagra doesn't work for everyone, but Addyi aims to fill that gap with a solution for women. Even though Addyi is often compared to Viagra, they contain two completely different active ingredients and work in the body differently. Addyi contains the active ingredient Flibanserin and is designed to increase or restore a wom...

Ciprofloxacn 500mg used for std or bladder infection?

my doctor prescribed ciprofloxcn 500mg, but idk if it is a bladder infection or std. would he have told me if it was an std? ## In theory, he should have, because when someone has an STD, they should be informed of such, so they know to avoid sexual contact with another person, to avoid infecting others. In addition, there is also the chance that their sex partner may also be infected and need to be treated. This is an antibiotic and may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, skin rash and diarrhea.

m122 pill

My midwife prescribed me valcyclovir. I'm in my last month of pregnancy and have been taking the m122 tab for almost a month now, once a day and I still have outbreaks. How many should I take without hurting my baby? I dont want to have a c section. I have about 29 days left in my pregnancy, if he doesn't come early and im just trying to figure out what to do to get rid of the outbreaks and keep them gone until after I have my baby. I got another outbreak today and have been on the pill for weeks now, like 3 going on 4, and I dont think my midwife knows what shes talking about. ## Are you certain that it's herpes? It very rarely breaks out like that, there are usually times where you are definitely symptom free and it recurs every few months, not several times a month. If it...

Weird colored discharge after Canesten

I had the common symptoms of thrush; itchy/irritation, swollen & discharge. However the discharge was odorless and extremely thick and white. Maybe a little too much info but it was so thick yet so dry that it didn't come out in my underwear, it was floating out of me in the bath *yuck*. Anyway apart from the discharge, I had experienced all of those symptoms and took a Canesten capsule and the next day it was gone. However this time, after taking the capsule, the first day after it became 10x more irritated but the discharge got more watery and there was less of it. 2nd day, the irritation has calmed down quite a lot but there is a lot more discharge than there was before taking the capsule. Also, the colour of it on the second day is a dull pink with the same consistency as it...

MOUTH SORES

SORES APPEAR WHEN EATING ACIDIC FOODS ## Are most of them inside, or outside of the mouth? Can you please clarify? Mouth ulcerations can occur inside your mouth, with acidic foods. They are usually called canker sores. They can be very painful, they get more aggravated with alcohol, tomatoes, orange juice, or anything else acidic, and they may be painful for several days, they can take 7 to 10 days to heal, according to NIH studies. However, if they are outside the mouth, the FDA warns that they may be cold stores, which are caused by a herpes simplex virus, which can also erupt with irritation from acidic foods on the outside of the mouth. Other irritants may also cause them to erupt, and that can include chapped lips, and some medications. Are you on any medications? What does your no...

What is the difference between valacyclovir hcl 500mg and valacyclovir 1gm tablets? Why does one have hcl on the prescription bottle and the other just says valacyclovir? ## The only different between what you listed is the dosage, and the HCL just designated the specific chemical salt that medication has been derived from, some places list it on the prescription, and some don't. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What's the best medicine for shingles. Plus how can I boost my immune system and what should I eat or take to boost my immune system.
