SOURCE: Are you more prone to getting a fungal infection if you take antibiotics?

Yes, you are more prone to fungal infections because the antibiotic may kill the normal harmless bacteria that live and make it easier for fungi to flourish.

SOURCE: Are you more prone to getting a fungal infection if you take antibiotics?

Fungal infections can appear almost anywhere on the skin, but they are often most difficult for those who experience this issue somewhere on the face. Fungal skin infections on the face can occur in many different ways, but there are also a number of methods through which these conditions may be prevented and treated.

Leg ulcer with psudomonis


That can be serious for you. It sounds like you have already seen a doctor, and it may be worth having a second opinion.

Pseudomonas can become resistant to antibiotics, and often a specimen from the infection will be tested by a lab to determine which antibiotic is going to work best.

There is a range of possible antibiotics which the doctor may choose from:
ceftazidime
  • ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin
  • gentamicin
  • cefepime
  • aztreonam
  • carbapenems
  • ticarcillin
  • ureidopenicillins

  • In addition that ulcer may imply trouble with the blood circulation in your legs (which might be old news to you), so ask about treatment for that from the doctor.

    Above all, don't neglect this or try to manage it by yourself.

    I have an infected toe which I have been treated by podiatrist but it has got pus now I soaked it in salt water and put iodine dressing on it but its still very sore,i cant take antibiotics.


    I strongly suggest you see your primary care physician immediately; he or she can either a) send you to the hospital for treatment b) refer you to an open wound specialist c) or refer you to an infectious disease doctor.
    You say that you can't take antibiotics; which ones? all of them?
    If the toe, foot, and leg are red, hot to the touch, experiencing slight or low grade fever, chills and stuff...call for an ambulance and go to the hospital; you'll need to have a doppler test done on the leg to make sure you have no blood clots; plus you'll need to have blood labs and blood cultures taken!
    The toe pus will have to be analyzed to determine the type(s) of bacterium that have infected the toe.
    If you are a diabetic and your glucose levels are out of control- the healing process slows down to not-at-all.
    Depending upon the extent of the infection you may need to be placed on an I.V. drip of antibiotic versus taking it orally. There are so many broad range antibiotics available- even for people who "can't" take antibiotics; and you can be pre-treated with benadryl so you won't have any adverse reactions.
    Please don't wait; you can lose the toe, foot, or leg- and in extreme cases, infections can travel throughout the body and permanently damage vital organs and cause *****.
    As a matter of fact, don't wait- go to the hospital E.R. right now and get immediate treatment!

    I have caluses on my right foot big toe and heel and the skin came off on both of them what can I put on them both?


    I would be concerned about that. Why did the calluses develop and why did they come off? Contact a doctor, pedorthist or podiatrist to make sure all is well. This counts at least twice as important if you have a major systemic disease like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or marfan syndeome! Until the toes have healed, you should put a bandage on them with something like tea tree oil as a moisturizer and antibiotic.

    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.
