Customer Question
antibiotics oral and IV. Then...
Last year in March I had major surgery and got a lot of antibiotics oral and IV. Then I had bladder infection and got another course of antibiotics.
Developed bad genital rash (I am a male) wich I had to treat with Ketaconazole cream for a tear. Recently I developed oral and throat thrush which I am treating with nystatin swish and swallow. felt rather bad. My doctors say they do not think it is candida, but some other fungus, maybe still candida, but they do not think it is.
I read that such symptoms can indicate bad immunity,and HIV is likely. I got paranoid and took three Oral Quick home tests. All came out negative. I am paranoid and afraid to go to doctor for laboratory test. They say Oral Quick is reliable test. What do you think?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
