Question: I have been taking doxy 100 antibiotics for a week for a non specific uti caused by antibiotics. I had been on an antifungals for pityriasis rosea before these and another course of zithromax before that for a sinus infection. I have developed mouth ulcers and a pimple on my penis over the last two days. I had oral sex performed on me 3 days ago and am thinking the pimple may be related to friction from that. Can you explain this please? I spoke to my gp yesterday as I had also developed a fever (which has no subsided) and he said to continue the course of doxy for the next two weeks.

Dear,

The mouth ulcers you have developed are probably due the intake of antibiotics and you need to start yourself on multivitamins.

I shall be worried about the pimple on the penis. It is quite possible that it is caused by friction but you should still get it examined by your GP. In addition to doxy, I shall suggest you to start local application of antifungal cream under the guidance of your GP.

All the best. Do let me know if you have more concerns.

Sincerely

Rajiv Goel

Background: 30 y.o. female with hx of IBS, chronic abdominal pain (past 7 years). Recently began a course of antibiotics (azithromycin) for bacterial URI. During the course of antibiotics I noticed that intestinal gas now has an extremely offensive, putrid odor: intolerable. Question: Is this related to the antibiotics? Also during this time suffering from constipation (no normal BM in one week). Is it possible that fecal matter is decaying inside large intestine?
