Brief Answer: no seriousness in the report Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, There is no seriousness in the report. It shows pus cells 4 to 8. This is minimal. Also, mucus in normally present. Nothing to worry about this. Also, you have taken a course of antibiotic Zenflox OZ along with Redotil. Hence, there is no need for you to take further medications for the same. I would suggest you take probiotics for a week or so. I usually prescribe my patients Tablet Sporlac thrice daily after food for a week to ten days. You may want to try this as well. You can proceed to consult a gastroenterologist if you don't find enough improvement with this course of treatment. Also, take a bowl of yogurt or yakult health drink daily. You should be fine soon. Regards,

Brief Answer: Moxif is not required Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Thanks for the details in your follow up query. In my opinion, there is no need to take Moxif 400mg tablet as you have already taken Zenflox OZ. Both are antibiotics. If you have already started the Moxif, then you may continue and finish the course. If you have not started it, I would advice not to start it. Bifilac is same as sporlac. So, you can take either Bifilac or Sporlac. Not both of them together. You can take Rablet and Uniezme tablet as advised. No harm in it.
