I had unprotected sex and after several days I had swelling and pain in my crotch lymph glands, and low fever, the PCR results for clamydia returned negative but the pain in my glands got stronger and stronger, according to my symphtoms the doctor decided I have LGV, I took 4 weeks on doxycycline 2*100mg a day, (the pain stopped after a week), 3 days after I finish the treatment the pain in the lymph glands returned, my question is:
what is the second line of defence when doxycycline fails, assuming I have LGV?
You say that the doctors "decided" it is LVG. This is a very rare thing to pick up and is mostly in africa and somewhat in europe. If you are from the Netherlands, it being spread all through your country. If your node tubes are blocked from infection, they will have to do a needle cleaning.
some news, the doctors could not find any evidence for LGV, so I got checked for herpes and returned positive for herpes type 1 and 2, what is puzzling is how doxcycline helps eliminate my symptoms? When I stop my glands hurts.
I feel so lost, I am on doxycyline for so long (almost 2 month now), when I stop my glands get big, I have no idea what can it be, all tests returns negative, anybody knows what can it be? what reacts to doxcycline and affects the glands and it is not Clamidia?
