more medication

March 27th, 2017 at 01:16 pm

I woke up with full-body hives last Friday thanks to my second round of antibiotics. After talking with the nurse, calling in sick, and slapping some makeup on my face, I went to the store with my jacket zipped to my chin and picked up the requisite Zyrtec and Benadryl. I spent all weekend sleeping and drinking ridiculous amounts of water. I still have a rash...and a sinus infection. SO over it. I keep thinking that I need to find a work from home job. I've been sick for three months already this season and this round shows no signs of abating.

A friend told me about making phone calls over wifi without Facetime. I looked into it and it's possible with a newer phone. I just need to suck it up and buy one!

    That sounds miserable. I get hives from penicillin, so I always have to make sure they give me something other than Augmentin or Amoxicillin. If you have had a sinus infection for 3 months, then you likely need a course of steroids with the antibiotics. My ENT prescribes prednisone with two packs of zithromax with no break in between when I get like that. The trick is to take the prednisone and z-pack at the same time, not in separate courses like many regular doctors prescribe.

    Sorry re sinus/antibiotics. Also go through that.
    Re wifi/data calls - you could also do it through a laptop/PC (with microphone) if you have one at home, rather than buy a new ph. If people have a Google acct you can use Google hangouts to call/msg (it's there when you log into your Google acct).There's always Skype too.

    Thanks everyone!I just saw a doctor and she gave me a z-pack. To clarify, I haven't had THIS particular sinus infection for three months - just three weeks. Hopefully one z-pack does the trick and I can move on with my life!

    bluesfemme - I'll look into the computer idea, thanks!
