Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.

Loperamide is not a drug that I would give to my infants.
It could cause more harm.

Urine trace protein is normal. Nothing to worry about that.
Yes you can give him enterogermina. No harm with that.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi Dr. Rynne, I have chills, fatigue, stomach discomfort, night sweats, frequent night urination. I ve been tired most days of the week and sometimes unable to focus at work. I just wanted to lie down, rest and sleep. It comes and go throughout the day. I was diagnosed with chlamydia back in March and with adenocarcinoma in situ. I had a LEEP procedure to take out the abnormal celss. The sample had clear margin and doctor declared I don t have cancer. I am told to return every 3-4 months for close monitoring. Since these issues happenned, I have had stomach discomfort, fatigue and dizziness. In my recent visit to my primary care doctor, she prescribed Probiotics to balance my digestive system because she said the antibiotics I took to treat Chlymidia may have taken out the bad and also the good bacteria. I had it for 14 days and during that period I had extreme fatigure, headache, night sweats and chills. I couldn t bear it so I stopped it after 14 days. After stopping the medication, I continue having these sypmtoms although not extrememly severe like before but it is bad. I had to take off work for a few days. I am due to return to the doctor next week so she could run my hormone levels. I feel like the stomach discomfort is creating these problems but I don t know for sure. Please help, your advice is greatly appreciated. Tracy Nguyen

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 had my lower lip swell up, left side about a month ago. I took a Benedryl with no immediate effect and the swelling subsided in about 36 hours. Two weeks later my lower lip swole up again this time on my right side, I took a sinus/ allergy OTC, and once again no immediate effect and the swelling subsided in about 36 hours. Have had a rash which began with a small rough spot on my ankle, loosely following as the rash grew in size, a naturopathic protocol consistent with a yeast over- growth using probiotics and anti-candida supplements. Last week consulted with a naturopathic doctor and she suggested that my rash looks like eczema, not candida, but that the swelling and the rash even as their triggers may be different in specific that both are in response to my body being overloaded with toxins. Tomorrow I begin a detox cleanse and have an appointment with a dermatologist for the skin issue. I have mostly been on an anti-inflammatory diet for a week and have not used any Candida kill supplements for 2 weeks. My most acute issue, is a third swelling which began today almost immediately after drinking a mostly veg smoothie, beginning on my upper lip this time and spreading to my right cheek. I m already moving toward some necessary lifestyle changes. I have taken a couple of benedryls today. Any suggestions you could give me would be helpful. Thank you, signed Puffyface.

hi, my daughter is having amoebiasis last sunday and was admitted to the hospital she was discharged today and still continue taking antibiotics. Is it okay for her to eat yogurt cause they say it is the best probiotic. It will not affect her stomach while eating it?

I have been suffering from indigestion, bloating after eating and a mild IBS and have been using prebiotics and probiotics for the last over a year. It did not prove effective and my condition continues. It will be much appreciated if you would be good enough to prescribe some supplements which could be available in U.K. I live in London.
