Have throat infection, cold, no sneezing, took antibiotic, no help. Cure? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Dr XXXXXXX
How are you doing?
I am doing fine
How can I help you?
I have some questions for my health
Please go ahead
1st week was very mild throat infection
and i took honitus and some very light medicines
but infection didnt go and seems to grow more and some coughs also came
then i showed to one doctor and he gave me a antibiotics course of days
for past 7 days I am also having fever upto 101
it generally comes at night
or evening once I come from office
How old are you?
X XXXXXXX of Ches
is it possible I can have TB
are these symptoms of TB
I would like to know if you have lost any weight
I am feeling week
but I dont know if had a weight lost
my apetite is fine but my tounge is bitter
Do your clothes feel looser?
no not really
i dont feel so week
but yes fevirish
If you dont mind, am I speaking with XXXXXXX or XXXXXXX?
It is quote unlikely that you have tuberculosis
what are symptoms of TB
It does not cause the kind of symptoms you have been complaining of
i dont have long standing cough I cough 2-3 time a day
but they are painful
Which antibiotic did your physician put you on?
That makes it even more unlikely that it is TB
I took Mahaif dose
Teczine is a drug which works against allergies
Can you tell me the ingredients of Mahaif ?
I dont have the medicine now
one question doctor
are you sure about the spelling then?
If I have TB wont it come in X XXXXXXX
does it require CT Scan
Actually tuberculosis is something we diagnose clinically
investigations only supplement
I can assure you that you dont have tuberculosis
It is extremely unlikely
but why i have fever every night
it goes to 101
Its because of the infection
there has to be long standing cough, low grade fever, weight loss
Its a long standing process
It does not cause pain in the throat, high fever
ESR is a non specific test XXXXXXX
It can be elevated in a large number of conditions including acute infections
Sorry lost connection
So what should be my next step
should I get my tests done
Its not required
What I would suggest is that you tell me the name of the antibiotic you have recieved
Then we can change the antibiotic and give you a better one
I am sure you'll be ok within 3-4 days
till then, steam inhalation, warm saline gargles will help
Can you just recall the name of the antibiotic
I am trying to read on presecription slip
it starts with Maha and last 2 words seems t be if only
was it mahacef?
it is MAHACEF
i cannot prescribe the antibiotic here
But i would suggest that you speak with your physician about 2 drugs
take both and you'll be ok in 3-4 days
the fever will come down once the infection is taken care of
Otherwise till then, you can take Tablet Crocin 1 tablet as and when required, upto a maximum of 4 tablets daily
