Question: Hi, I am XXXXXXX from Bangalore, India. I had corn/calluses problem for feet cushion 5 months back. Initially treated with Salicylic acid. After 6 weeks, still corn/calluses were not gone. Doctor recommended removal procedure. So I have gone treatment for removal. Complete healing was taken nearly 2 months. But Still I'm getting pain same way. 3 weeks back I have shown to the same doctor (he is general Physician). He said it is infection.

Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr. Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

There are two possibilities of this persistence of pain -
1. Incomplete removal of the corn
2. Infection ( less likely).

A course of antibiotics along with painkillers may be taken first to see if there is any relief.
If there is no relief, you may have to consult a surgeon for complete removal of corn.
Also as advised by your doctor you need to wear a MCR slippers as corn can recur if the slippers are nor soft to the sole of the foot.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi
You can use cap. amoxicillin 500 mg twice a day for 7 days and for pain relief you can take Dolo 650 ( take one tablet when you have pain).

I hope that answers your question.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

My 20 year old daughter was recently on 1 week of Augmentin for flu like symptoms, with a fever ranging from 103-100+ for 5 days (fever broke and has stayed down since last Friday). She finished the antibiotics on Sunday and has since developed a rash that began on her hands and feet and has continued to spread to her arm and legs. It is not blister like nor is it on her torso or face. It does itch and over the counter cortisone cream isn t helping Could this be an allergic reaction? or due to the fever? Thanks in advance for your help! She had taken a Z pack before the augmentin
