Thanks! I just figured it would be good to know, not that I anticipate getting it

I hear you. I get it at least four times a year. I have a standing order for azythromyacin. Best wishes.

It was given to me after skin allergy test

Answered Dec 15, 2017    reply

a skin allergy test cannot test for something that is not an 'allergy' - it is poison

In tests it seems i have no allergy for nothing but i have serious allergic reactions

Answered Dec 15, 2017    reply

Shanley you can be sensitive to all sorts of things - this does not make it an allergy / we (and the docs) use the word allergy much too loosely - and for fluoroquinolones we who react to it do so generally because we do not process the poison adequately and we become 'floxed' said condition can harm us terribly and even kill us - luckily my reaction stopped short of killing me, it just left me horribly disabled for the last 11 years. but I am not allergic to it or to anything else even though I have been treated for 'allergies' all of my life.

I also am disabled from Levaquin. Constant, severe pain in my legs.

It depends on what kind of bug they are treating.

I was just at my docs office this week and had a chest x Ray to rule out pneumonia(thankfully it was clear) but when I asked how it would be treated if I had it, she told me azithromycin.

this is a good brand.
I pierce a capsule to use it topically (mixed with olive oil) for skin infections.
it is a hot strong oil so do not get it in eyes or mucous membranes.
