Brief Answer:
Detaied answer below.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for the query. I understand your concern.
* History of recurrent throat infection with fever can be commonly due to -
- viral infections due to weakness or low resistance
- Bacterial infections not irradicated with previous antibiotics due to bacterial resistance
-chronic toncillitis ./Streptococcal infections which are difficult to cure.
-exposure to irritants like fumes of chemicals or other allergens.( *The eosinophill count within normal limits can be due to the medicines given for 2 days ... so the treating doctor would be best judge to consider allergic cause as origine of problem.)
Infections like HIV in some cases,
* thyroid test is not relevant for sore throat.
In this scenario.... she needs A detailed ENT examination by an expert & investigations like complete blood count/ throat swab culture &sensitivity test (which would point type of causative bacteria &suitable antibiotic to take care of it.)& allergy screening test if needful.
*I would advise for consultation of an ENT specialist for complete assessment &specific advise.
* Self care: please take full course of medicines prescribed
- A diet with probiotics,vitamins &high proteins to raise resistance would help.
- Drink plenty of warm water & avoid dried throat with reinfection by viruses.
*Thus proper evaluation,expert advise &self care wouldhelp her in getting rid of the problem.
I hope that answers your query. Any follow up query is welcome.
Thanks.

Brief Answer:
There is some misundrstanding.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
I am sorry to read your reaction.let me justify my answer.
Prescribing for a recurrent infection in an unexamined patient is not correct...apart from this here there is recurrance of infection in spite of treatment given every month( because the antibiotic used was not effective ).. this itself indicates that before drug advise , patient needs to be throughly physically examined for the infection & also for her general health apart from being investigated to know about the causative organism &names of antibiotics useful for cure.
I hope now you understand how advising specific drug is impossible &improper in your case.
Thanks.

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem?
