I was prescribed 4pills...

I was prescribed 4pills of metronidazole and took them about 7hrs ago but is still having an awful itch to the point I can’t get any rest and pacing the floors. Is there anything I can do to relieve this awful itch. It’s almost painful

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I was diagnosed with Trichomoniasis and i have tried to use coconut oil, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar and nothing is working. I thought after I took the 4 pills that it would have eased up by mow

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I started taking kflex about 2 weeks ago because I was originally told it was a UTI then when that didn’t work I was put on macrobid and it just kept getting worse until I went to ER where they diagnosed me with Trichomoniasis

I am 43 and I’m not taking any other medicine now, I just took the 4 metronozidale pills. I didn’t resume my macrobid

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Metronidazole can take some time to have effect.
You can now take Claritin or Zyrtec to relieve the itch.
Those are available over the counter.
You can take sitz bath.
This consists of sitting in luke warm water for 10-15 minutes.
You can repeat it 2-3 times a day.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor again.
I hope this information will be helpful.

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.
