    I have red bumps on my scalp and I've been to various dermatologist saying that it's an internal problem. They usually give me some antibiotic along with a topical solution. I've been taking this antibiotic for half a month and I still see no improvement. I also notice my hair seems to be thinning out more or my hair just feels less thick.

    I had a bad cut on my upper lip from a blow to the face, it was untreated for about 20 hours so it started getting infected. the second dosage i took at night, about a hour later my body temperature was very high. My body was burning like I had a fever but my head was not hot. I was sweating badly and I could not sleep all night. I decided to stop taking the medication. Would not recommend it.

    I was bit/stung by a bug which resulted in a huge swollen bump on my finger. The medicine worked well for treating it, but I did experience side effects in my throat/esophagus. I feel mild cramping, like I have food stuck in my throat and have been burping more than normal. I thought it was heartburn at first and took TUMS but that did nothing for it. Thank goodness I took my last pill today a ... Show Full Comment
