Discussions that mention penicillin

Children's Health board


I had Uti's once a month, for about 7-8 years or so.. I was unable to take amox, because i am allergic to penicillin. I never had a catheter (sp?) done, altho, I had a couple surgeries done (not sure what surgeries, actually..) I remember having at least 3 done. I was asleep for all of them, except 1. and none of them hurt. Altho for one of them, afterwards, I could not walk.. for a couple hours, altho, i was able to stand, and walk a few steps.. I had to rest for part of the day.. then i was fine..

What helped, to FINALLY get rid of the UTI's was Cipro, it is a anti inflammatory, but it actually got rid of my UTI's after a while using them.
See if the docs will let her use cipro ( I used it at her age also)
I havent had any UTI's since.:) im so glad!

wow, thats great, good for you!! I have done some reading, and cipro was listed as one of the antibiotics used to treat the infection. Her dr doesnt seem to think she needs anything else besides amox. I hope she at least tests negative so we can go ahead with the testing on Nov. 2. If not, I'll be soooo mad at them...... I thought about calling a pediatric urologist, I dont need referrals with my insurance company, but it looked like offices wont see you unless a dr. referred you.. I feel like I am constantly learning how to treat myself and my kids and that the dr's dont know or care about anything...Its frustrating.
