Acquisition of a viral infection on top of a bacterial infection while one is on an antibiotic should definitely
I’ve been sick for about a month now, I think. I’ve got a bad earache in my left ear and painful sores on my tongue. It kept almost going away (yea, no doc’s!) and then coming back (oh noo!) and then it just got so painful that I gave in and went to the doctor. We do not have insurance and we are saving to move and I just really did not want to have to spend our moving fund money. But it got to the point that I knew I had to.
The doctor said that the earache is a sinus infection — I had no idea that could be a possibility, weird. And the sores on my tongue are a fungal infection. I had been thinking the cold sores I always get on my lips just moved to my tongue and they were worse/much slower to heal, since they were in a wet environment. And also because I recently got some horribly itchy, painful sores on my nose. In regards to that lovely episode, the doctor believes that was more likely my first fear when my poor nose got attacked by the dark forces of infectious evil: a staph infection. It definitely hurt like a staph infection. Not quite as much as when I got MRSA, but it was supremely uncomfortable.
So I got beaucoup meds from the doc for this current dance with the darkness – four of them! And began treatment. Finally! This will all be over. Right?
