Brief Answer: Urinary Tract Infection & treatment . Detailed Answer: Hello, XXXXX, Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum. You took ofloxacin and nitrofurantoin for UTI. The most common side effects of nitrofurantoin are rash, urticaria, exfoliative dermatitis , SIALADENITIS ( this is responsible for tonsils infection). Oral thrush developed due to excessive use of antibiotics . Use triamcilone gel (oral paste ) for local use over infected tonsils. Also take lactic acid bacillus tablets 150 million spores for 5-7 days for oral thrush (tonsils), available in tablet forms as an OTC product.Avoid smoking , if possible. Still UTI present then get in urine culture and drug sensitivity test and get treatment from an Urologist . Hope this information will be helpful for you. Further any question I will reply in follow up. Good luck. Dr. HET
