Question: I am having symptoms of a bladder infection. I have no bladder cramps, rather pain in my urether. I have some meds, about a year old which I have kept for an emergency like I'm having. I have phenazopyridine, 200 mg; smz/tmp, 400-80mg; and nitrofurantoin;100 mg. Can I take some of these to relieve the pain?

Hello, Doctors, Please, help me with this: I am 35 weeks pregnant. I have skin infection between labias and anus . Pus constantly coming out from it. My Ob/Gyn found these types of bacteria ( Enterobacter Aerogenes, Enterobacter Cloacae, cocci Clusters), she prescribed me Clindomicin first for 2 weeks 4 times every 6 hours. It did not help. Then she prescribed Sulfamethoxazole-TMP one tablet twice a day. I do not want to take that kind of antibiotics because it will be harmful for the baby. What can I do about it?
