Symptoms of Shigella dysentery

My daughters’ school has sent home a note telling us that there is a serious problem with a bacterial infection called Shigella in her school and others in our county. I have heard that is can be dangerous so I would love your input on this problem. My daughter does not have it but I want to know everything about it in case it does happen.

Antibiotics and Mastoid Infections

I am 56 yrs. old and have had mastoid troubles since 5yrs old. I had my first ear surgery when I was 5 yrs. old on right ear with big scare behind the ear and another one right ear and left ear when I was 18yrs old and I have lost all hearing and feeling in left ear. I have frequent bouts with infection in right ear and have been using the drug “OFLAXACIN” with good results.

Chronic ear infections

I have a one year old daughter who seems to have chronic ear infections. She has taken numerous antibiotics. Each one seems to clear up the ear infection only to come back very soon.

Antibiotics and Alcohol

An excellent question. Alcohol in general is not contraindicated with antibiotics, with many exceptions. For example FLAGYL and many monobactam antibiotics combined with alcohol are a bad mix and can cause severe nausea and headaches.

Antithyroid Drugs

Iodine is actively concentrated by the thyroid gland (sodium iodide transporter). After oxidation it is bound to thyrosine residues thus forming monoiodothyronine (MIT) or diiodothyronine (DIT). MIT and DITare coupled to triiodothyronine (T3) orthyroxine (T4) and are stored in thyroid follicles bound to thyroglobuline.

Antiprotozoal Drugs

Malaria is caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Plasmodium. Infected Anopheles mosquitoes transmitted the parasite to humans during blood feeding. The infective stages are the sporozoites, which invade liver cells where they replicate to form merozoites.
