Brief Answer:
could be colitis

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

As per your history and reports, you might be having colitis.

1-2pus cells/hpf in stools are normal.

I usually give my patients with similar complaints, a course of preprobiotics. As due to intake of antibiotics the normal heathy gut flora gets replaced by bad bacterias, leading to colitis and pain.

The preprobiotics replace that bad bacterias with the healthy ones. So I would suggest that you try the same for a week and eat fresh curds to supplement it.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

I was recently on a round of amoxocillin for a tonsillitis infection, when I also had a yeast infection present at the time of my visit. I was also prescribed diflucan, and took two during the course of the antibiotics (10 days) to clear the infection, and have been eating lots of yogurt and kefir everyday since. I ordered a swab test at the first visit which came back negative for candida, much to my confusion. However, after the two diflucan symptoms subsided. 3 weeks later the tonsillitis returned, along with a UTI. I was prescribed another round of amoxicillin, and I have been 5 days, or halfway through, my second round. About three days ago, two days in to the second round of antibiotics, I developed yet another yeast infection.. or so I thought. I have taken two diflucan, still taking kefir and yogurt, to no avail. I had noticed that the discharge had no yeasty odor, which is usually very obvious to me, yet the symptoms all pointed to the worst yeast infection I ve ever experienced. Tonight I tried a clotrimazole suppository from an OTC 7-day treatment pack, along with acidophilus supplements, and within an hour was experiencing an even more painful and itchy, almost burning reaction. Upon inspection, I noticed very severe swelling of the inner labia, and even a tiny bit of bleeding from the now completely raw, sore and swollen inner labia. It seems to be a reaction to the clotrimazole, which I plan to discontinue. I am curious about the possibility of a lactobacilli overgrowth, or cytotolytic infection, as a result of my overzealous consumption of probiotic foods. Even moreso, I am interested in finding a way to put this problem to rest! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

I've had a burning sensation in my throat for years, slight hoarseness, tip of tongue burns too, and sometimes feel tightness in chest, and even intestinal cramps that seem to be a part of it. Overall feel sick. Had a scope down throat, tried antacids, no help. I'm thinking fungus or bacteroid fragilis no one will test me for those things..tried anti candida diet, still same. Thanks for listening..
