Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
The symptoms are typical of UTI.
The next step is do urine culture test.
Pending results, antibiotics can be started.
Based on the results, antibiotics can be changed if necessary.
Till then,
1. Plenty of oral fluids like water and fruit juices.
2. Cranberry juice.
should help.
Best regards
DR GS

Hi. My Daughter has a cough and rash on her forehead (tiny bumps) no fever, no itch no pain no other symptoms. Plays well, eats well and sleeps well. She has been taking Claritin for spring allergies and started on mucinex yesterday to keep her cough loose. I m puzzled by the tiny bumps on her forehead. The community pool just opened this past week so could it be the pool water?

Hi, I'm 20 years old and experiencing severely sharp pain in my ear that travels down to my neck and across my face. I can't hear in that ear either. This began about 6 days ago after getting a thorough ear cleaning from my ENT. I went to the emergency room 2 nights ago and the doctor there could not treat me. Although he did give me ear drops, mucinex D, amoxycillin and pain medicine. None of it has helped at all. Is there any home remedy to help alleviate the pain until I can go back to my ENT tomorrow? Do I have an ear infection and was it caused by the deep cleaning?

I have had a low grade fever (99.1-100.3) for 3 days, accompanied with a cough that feels like it burns in the upper part of my chest when I do so. Just today I noticed a white coating on my tongue. I ve just been taking OTC Mucinex D and iburophen off and on. Should I be concerned about the white tongue?
