Question: some background. I had an ear infection that was diagnosed as an outer ear infection and took the medication prescribed. I had an allergic reaction after 7 days and was told to discontinue and that the infection would most likely be taken care of. went back a few weeks later still with an ear infection. it was treated with amoxicillin, Sudafed, and flonase. I again had an allergic reaction 7 days in. I went to clinic and they informed me that the infection was gone.. NOW.. still have fullness in ear, vision problems. What should this be caused by? stressing out. my balance seems to be affected as well. feeling desperate for answers at this point.

Otitis externa

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to health care Magic and thanks for putting up the query
Please look for the drug causing allergy.
From the history it is either a fungal infection if the external ear or middle ear infection.
Please tell me do you have any history of frequent nasal or throat infection? It can be sinusitis as you have headache too?
Any history of water entering into the ear?
Any pain on pressing the tragus?
Any hearing problem?
Regarding vision problem, are you having far vision issues or double vision?
Any investigations done?
You should get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done and refraction done.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Yes, there was a diagnosis of "swimmers ear". No pain, some pressure. Pops at times when breathing normally.no problem hearing. Seeing things at a distance is a problem.

Brief Answer:
Otomycosis with eustachian tube blockage

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.
Put candibiotic ear drops 2 drops 4 to 5 times a day for a week. Take a combination of levocetrizine plus phenylepherine twice daily for a week. Take steam inhalation and chew a gum that will help to decongest and relieve symptoms. Continue with nasal spray.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Wishing you a speedy recovery

Thanks and regards

Dear Dr. Srinivasan

Name - Nitin

Age - 36

I have had recurring problem of red spots (isloated) on my penis head for 3-4 years. I have consulted many docs with varied diagnosis.

I was single then and made to believe it was fungal, it comes on its own and have been getting treated accordingly by a dermatologist.

Recently i got married and again recurringly had red infection on my penis. Along with this, my wife also developed infecion and was put under Gynea treatment, again for fungal infection and Fas Kit prescribed to both along with aplication of fungal infection creams. For the reason not transfering infection bw me and wife, we have stopped having intercourse (unprotected) however my wife was ok but I kept developing these red spots/ infection.

However on repeated occurances we consulted a different dermatologist and he suggested Herpes but blood test reports ruled out. However he insisted that indeed it is Herpes and sometimes the medical reports do not show the same. I was put on Famtrax 250 for 1 week along with application of topical anti-biotic(fusidic acid cream). The red spots kept going and coming but doc clamed it is Herpes geting cured and that takes time to cure as in past i have been exposed to steriod in form of anti-fungal creams. Post a week of Famtrax, i was put on antialergic and anti-biotic cream for a week.

the red spots have gone but now there is recurring white spots (small pimple types) which come and go. On showing to doc, he said its miliaria of penis and common and due to non drying of the area. I was asked to take urine test (culture and routine) and culture cam normal. Routine test pointed to some epidrmal cells (UT infection, I have mild recurring burning sensationtoo) and doc asked me to take Disodium Hydrogen Citrate (Alkasol) for a week. I am currently on Alkasol and Antialergic.

But the white spots are coming and going everyday still. I am not sure if im cured yet but doc says im fully cured but the white spots can be ignored and i can have unprotected sex with my wife.

Problem is i want to start a family soon but am confused due to various diagnosis. I do not want to pass on to my wife and abstain from sex.

Please suggest cure for white spots.

i wll be very greatful.



Kind regards

Nitin

A friend had psoriasis for over 20 years. Shje is now 57 years of age. 12 years ago she began to suffer from arthritis. Doctors merely said it was psoriatic arthritis. Over the last two years her kidney became diseased (stage 4). It was then that a doctor said she was most probably suffering from yeast/fungal infection. I was wondering if she could be treated for the yeast/fungal infection by way of starvation with saline drip and antifungal. Of course if this is possible it will be done in a hospital. Once the yeast infection is cleared, the kidney disease could be addressed. Your views under no obligation or lialibility please.

Good day. I have noticed a strongish smell after urinating. The pharmacist said its either a fungal or bacterial infection. Diflucan was suggested, but that would only sort out a fungal infection not a bacterial?? i had been on antibiotics a while ago and my life is very stressful right now due to my mother being ill. In the past I would use Diflucan after antibiotics to get rid of the candida which antibiotics cause. NOw there is only a smell of the urine but no actual discharge.

I have a dermatology issue. The skin on my fingers crack. I live in Maine and have suffered from chap fingers all my life. But now it seems to affect my thumbs. During the year, when my hands are clear. A calous will appear. And the skin will peal, and the layers of skin will continue till they eventually bleed. Right now both thumbs are affected. I thought it might be a fungal infection. It could be a contact alegy? The only relief I get is by using tape. Help?
