Forget The Consumption Of Antibiotics In The Treatment Of Neck Swelling?
During the afternoon, I want to ask if I was advised to take antibiotics 3 times a day but I forgot to take them so the room only took 2x. Then I have been taking antibiotics from 3 different doctors for a month because of the swelling of the neck, first from the general practitioner then from the doctor and finally from the dentist, is that okay?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain the cause of the swelling in your neck. Did you go to 3 different doctors for the same reason (swelling in the neck) or for different reasons? Did your doctor tell you about the cause of the swelling in your neck or plan a specific examination? What exactly antibiotic drug do you take? Are the antibiotics given different or the same?
Basically forgetting to take medicine 1 time will not have a certain effect, including it will not cause treatment failure. However, to answer your second question, it is necessary to know clearly the things I asked above.
Swelling of the neck can occur due to many things, can be due to swelling of the lymph nodes (for example due to infection or inflammation in the area around the gland, infection of the lymph nodes themselves, lymph node cancer, or metastasis of cancer), enlargement of certain structures in the neck area (neck for example enlargement of the thyroid gland, cancer of the head and neck area), infection of the skin, and so forth. If you take antibiotics for the same condition (neck swelling), the swelling has occurred for a month, and the swelling is still present, you should consult a surgeon for a more complete evaluation and if necessary additional examinations (USG, CT scan, or biopsy).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
