    Amoxicillin for Helicobacter eradication

    At first I felt better after the antibiotic therapy (1000mg amoxicillin + 500mg clarithromycin). I was fitter. On the 3rd day started shingles / herpes zoster). This I got with 1 syringe Medivitan (B12 etc.) under control. The shingles disappeared on the same day. 4 days later, my skin started to react to the neck, upper chest and face (lower half): itching, burning, mild blistering. I only treated with Silica (Diatomaceous Earth). Now on the 9th day of treatment, the face is clearly reddened, I have very dry, slightly inflamed eyes, neck and chest are still dotted with small pustules. Now I will see the doctor and clarify whether I should stop the treatment or treat the inflammation with antihistamines and continue to take. I have 6 days left …

    Amoxicillin for Tonsillitis

    Received amoxicillin in the course of angina in the throat / throat. On the second day of treatment I noticed redness on the right back of the hand and on the right elbow with a slight itching. Since these did not worsen but rather tended to disappear again, I continued the treatment. After 10 days of treatment began after about 2-3 days, a very dry skin in the palms, which I cream now regularly. Next time, I’ll probably do without this drug better.

    Amoxicillin for Dental treatment

    In August of 2012, I was in the treatment of a dentist, this amoxicillin me about 5 days before the dental surgery with the daily intake to prevent inflammation. Hardly a night slept, I had a strange taste in the mouth (oil …. it almost tasted smelling like locksmith). My skin felt quite dry and I got a few red pustules. During the daily use of the toilet, I noticed that the smell of urine was just as unpleasant as smelling of locksmith’s smears. On the evening of the second day, I also found infections in the genital area. So I decided to take amoxicillin off and explained it to my dentist on the day of the dental surgery. 3 teeth were missing after the operation … I felt exhausted and could hardly concentrate on the environment around me. When I got home, I immediately lay down in my bed and slept through to noon, feeling very well after getting up. I had no inflammation. The sewn up places in my mouth healed very fast. I think that this drug has done its job, but at the expense of my well-being. I’m back in the morning with three more teeth – then replacement …. – This time I know that I will not use this drug because of my allergy again for prophylaxis. My dentist will treat me this time with penicylin for prophylaxis. Thank you for taking the time to read this review. Sincerely, a nice rapporteur * g * 🙂
