Dear Sir/Madame, I'm writing to you because I was diagnosed

Dear Sir/Madame,

I'm writing to you because I was diagnosed with ureaplasma urealyticum abroad (routine STD testing) - no symptoms. I was prescribed seemingly strong antibiotics (looking at what other diseases it is used to treat), doxycyclin. I have learned that in some countries this is not considered an STD since it's presenton 70% of people. I also found a study online that advises against treating ureaplasma without any symptoms (because of the development of bacteria resistance), but also found articles that says that it's a very dangerous infection which can lead to infertility or joint problems. So I'm properly confused as what to do about it. Should I take the antibiotics? What about my partner? I don't want to develop antibiotics resistance either, or well I don't want the bacterias in me to do that at least.

Can you please share your thoughts about this with me?
Thank you,

Dear Doctor, My daughter age 6 years old was diagnosed with complex partial seizures. She started her medicine on April 26th 2012. She was taking depakene(200mg/ml) - 5ml/day, lamictal - 1/day, T. Frisium(5mg) - 1/day. still we noticed her having fits at least 3 per day. she is studying in KGII, but she is lacking writing skills, and do not pay any concentration on writing. orally she is ok. she grasp everything from school. but she is not able to concentrate while writing. In july 2013 we consulted the doctor in Sree chitra Institute of Medical Science, Trivandrum, India. As per the doctors in Sree chithra Medical Institute, we are now giving her only Oxetol (300mg) one tablet in the morning, Frisium(10mg) one tablet in the evening and Oxetol(450mg) one tablet in the evening. We find lot of improvement because after taking these medicines prescribed from Sree Chithra Medical Institute, the fits came into control by 1 per day and even there are no fits some days, but we are more concerned about her writing skills, as we face lot of complaints from the school, how can we bring her up in writing and how can she give concentration in her writing. Once her fits get controlled, will she be able to write. Please advise, we are very much worried about her. Thank you doctor, Mother
