I am having serious diarrhea reaction to Augmentin. (Now day 5) I have an upper respiratory infection: sinusitis, bronchitis, laryngitis and coughing. I put in a call to my doctor to see if we can change the antibiotic and she will decide what else to prescribe. I recall having success a few years ago with Avelox for a similar illness. Hoping to suggest to my doctor one which has the least intestinal side effects. Also reading about Cefdinir.

Hello, I'm 50 years old. I have Crohn's disease since 1984. I keep it at bay since 1995 by being vegetarian and eating lactose free. (Parmesan cheese older than 30 months is advertised as being lactose free). Recently I have diagnosed myself as having Duhring's disease or Dermatitis Herpetiformis. It was confirmed by a young doctor in the E.R. room at the hospital. So now I'm eating vegetarian, lactose free, and Gluten free too. How long will it take for me to overcome the terrible-looking, itchy skin condition that I have from when I stopped eating Gluten? Thanks so much for your responses. Maurizio Pieroni YYYY@YYYY
