  • Mucous in stools rolling std jab
    (Asked by a 22 year old man who has Diarrhoea Infectious, Nausea, Mucous In Stool, and takes Cephalexin)
    Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Balanitis, a small white ulcer has appeared on my foreskin caused by the trauma of the condition.

    I went to the ER for the problem, worrying that it maybe and std, the nurse and doctor there told me to keep the ulcer clean and to keep strong soaps away from it, but to be safe they gave me the std shot along with 4 tablets to take. The next morning and ever since, I have been experiencing bad nausea and what started with comstipation, has now turned into dhiarea, when I pass a stool which has some sort of solidity to it, it is coated in mucous. Alongside this. Every time I have food sitting in my stomach, I feel very sick to the stomach.


    Just wondering if this is a side effect of the drug, or if I have some kind of candida which is reacting with the drugs?? I had the jab on Wednesday and felt Ill first thing in the morning the next day. This is the third day of the illness, but seems less extreme throughout the day.

    Sorry for the graphic nature of this post, just wondering if anyone had any answers before I spent another small fortune at the doctors!

  • Has anyone else acquired ecthyma as they were getting over henoch schonlein purpura?
    (Asked by a 12 year old girl who has Henoch-schonlein Purpura, Ecthyma, and takes Cephalexin, Bactrim, Gabapentin, Clindamycin Hydrochloride, Hydrocodone Bitartrate And Acetaminophen, Prednisone)
    My 11 year old daughter came down with Henoch Schonlein Purpura in September of 2013, following a sore throat. We thought maybe the throat is what caused the purpura, but she also had a black type of wound on her knee that could have very well been a spider bite, so we are not sure which of the two caused it. After months of battling and then horrid ulcers forming everywhere on her legs she was diagnosed with Henoch Schonlein Purpura with bullous hemorrhagic sores. I thought that it fit, but none of the pictures quite fit. So after going home and dealing with this and researching it for some time, we totally came to our own conclusion she did have HSP with Hemorrhagic Bullae, she had ecthyma, the pics and symptoms and way it healed all matched perfectly. Now most of them healed on their own leaving terrible, some crater type scarred areas and very dark in color. Pretty much deep brown/purple coloring in each healed ulcer. She also had necrotic tissue and eschars when the infection was at it's worst. So now the HSP has been long gone and it's now February of 2014 and she has one persistent ulcer that I am happy to report is finally making some progress, it was her largest one and it would shrink down to only needing a tiny band aid then get all the way back to half dollar size again. It is a vicious infection. At the children's hospital where she was admitted two different times for long periods of time, the learning docs were fascinated by her condition and not only the new docs but some really experienced veterans. When rounds took place, my daughter had an audience of 20-30 docs just in her room, so I know it's rare, for both to happen together. Anyhow, I just want to hear of anyone else who has even a nearly similar story! Is there anyone out there? As for the drug list, she is on nothing now. She was on all these interchanging while her infection was full blown. The ecthyma caused her so much pain, way more than the pain she felt from the HSP.She also never took the prednisone, it was given to have as a precaution if she had severe vomiting from the HSP. She never did. She did have blood in her stool. She just seems to have been sick so much since all this started, one cold after the other, she will complain her "pee" hurts one day and the next it will be okay. I just don't know which end is up for the kid and always worry about her kidneys because of the HSP. I am rambling now, any similarities? Someone please?
