I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck with this, and I have pasted you a link to the NHS Choices cache on this issue:


I genuinely hope that you have a speedy recovery.

All my hopes and dreams for you



Your doctor told you you "should not get it there"? What an odd thing to say!

There are no rules as to where an infection "should" occur in the body.

If the antibiotics are making you sick, have you phoned to ask if this is a normal reaction, or to find out if you're having an adverse reaction that might indicate you need a different type of medicine?

I hope you feel much better very soon.

hi i took the antibioticks and later i was very sick i read the leaflet it said can cause sickness rash breathing problems .my doctor knows i have problems with antebioticks i have had problems since i have had fibromyalgia i get very bad side affects .


so did you phone to ask if you should continue or did you get a different antibiotic? Presumably the leaflet said that you should contact your doctor if those side effects occurred?


hi yes she just phoned me back she told me to stop taking them i have to have another swab on the 25th of june .i asked what caused this condition she said it was very unusual to get this in the vagina yet when i looked it up i found quitea few women have this but it does not respond to penacilin which i am alergic toi asked whas this contagious as i did not want to pass it on to my husband she said yes it can be get him to wear a condom she said it was a bacterial infection i dont think she knew ,thank you ,


yes, staph infections are highly contagious and don't usually respond to "normal" antibiotics. I hope you get a better reaction to the new antibiotics and that it helps you recover fully.
