Cough Treatment Coughs can be treated in a variety of ways, depending on the cause of the cough. For most healthy adults, most treatments will involve self-care.

    • keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water
    • elevate your head with extra pillows when sleeping
    • use cough drops to soothe the throat

Only bacterial caused coughs are treated with antibiotics (such as bacterial whooping cough, pertussis, or pneumonia). You should seek professional medical attention for you maladies, as the internet cannot diagnose or treat your problems. No matter, always follow the medical professional's treatment plan.

Omnicef what are side effects and what is it treated for how should it be taken?


That is a cephalosporin antibiotic. Dosage varies according to the sickness, a typical dose being 600 mg per day, with or without food.

The prescribing doctor needs to know if the patient has allergies to anything, is pregnant, or has any

- blood clot disorder
- disorder of the kidneys or bowel
- seizures
- diabetes
- recent vaccinations
- other medicines regularly taken

Like other antibiotics the full course in the presciption should be taken to the last dose as directed.

Why is these antibiotics not working? She gave it to me for bladder infection. the tablets are white and were prescribed for 20 days, cannot read the name she wrote down, only a Batch Lot 2720840.


We are not physicians as as such cannot and will not speculate officially on your problem. However, common sense says that if your symptoms have not improved, or have worsened, then you may have a more serious infection that originally assumed; you may be infected with an antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria; or you may have been misdiagnosed. In any case, a return trip to the doctor is in order if you want to solve your issue.

What is a good antibiotic? Can you buy it over the counter


Way too generic question. There are many types for very specific treatments. Antibiotics need to be directed according to a rigid plan. They are only effective within a prescribed time parameter decided by whatever factors are concerned with your treatment. The course of treatment can usually last no more than 10 days and must not be repeated for at least a month after end of preliminary treatment. Other wise any current or future treatment will fail due to the body resisting the "cure". This is the same for both internal and external applications. Hope this is useful ...

Treatment of lyme disease


Treatments and drugs
By Mayo Clinic Staff

Antibiotics are used to treat Lyme disease. In general, recovery will be quicker and more complete the sooner treatment begins.

Antibiotics




  • Oral antibiotics. These are the standard treatment for early-stage Lyme disease. These usually include doxycycline for adults and children older than 8, or amoxicillin or cefuroxime for adults, younger children, and pregnant or breast-feeding women. A 14- to 21-day course of antibiotics is usually recommended, but some studies suggest that courses lasting 10 to 14 days are equally effective.


  • Intravenous antibiotics. If the disease involves the central nervous system, your doctor may recommend treatment with an intravenous antibiotic for 14 to 28 days. This is effective in eliminating infection, although it may take some time to recover from your symptoms. Intravenous antibiotics can cause various side effects, including a lower white blood cell count, mild to severe diarrhea, or colonization or infection with other antibiotic resistant organisms unrelated to Lyme.


After treatment, a small number of people still experience some symptoms, such as muscle aches and fatigue. The cause of these continuing symptoms is unknown, and treating with more antibiotics doesn\'t help. Some experts believe that certain people who get Lyme disease are predisposed to develop an autoimmune response that contributes to their symptoms. More research is needed.

Bismacine


The Food and Drug Administration warns against the use of bismacine, an injectable compound prescribed by some alternative medicine practitioners to treat Lyme disease. Bismacine, also known as chromacine, contains high levels of the metal bismuth. Although bismuth is safely used in some oral medications for stomach ulcers, it\'s not approved for use in injectable form or as a treatment for Lyme disease. Bismacine can cause bismuth poisoning, which may lead to heart and kidney failure.

Is there any treatment for my calluses?


  • Salicylic acid. Additionally, your doctor may apply a patch containing 40 percent salicylic acid (Curad Mediplast, Dr. Scholl's Corn Removers, others), which is available without a prescription. He or she will let you know how often you need to replace this patch, and may recommend that you use a pumice stone or a metal nail file to smooth away the dead skin before applying a new patch. Salicylic acid is also available in a topical form by prescription for large areas.
  • Antibiotic medication. Your doctor may also suggest applying an antibiotic ointment to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Shoe inserts. If you have an underlying foot deformity, your doctor may prescribe custom-made padded shoe inserts (orthotics) to prevent recurring corns or calluses.
  • Surgery. In rare instances, your doctor may recommend surgery to correct the alignment of the bone causing the friction.
