A week before Christmas, I had typical symptoms of a uti. I tried to flush it out with cranberry juice, but 7 days later I called the doc who prescribed Macrobid. After 3 days I had NO relief so they switched me to Cippromax. Again, 3 days later I still had no relief. The pain was unbearable; doc got the culture back showing Group B strep. I took amoxicilin and vicodin for ten days and finally felt relief.
2 weeks later the pain came back. I went to the gyn this time and told her I had Strep B based on my previous experience. She took a urine sample and did an exam. She found what she was sure was a herpes lesion. Every herpes test know to man was negative- ironically the strep B was positive. I once again took Amoxicilin, but got no relief afterward. Doc is now stumped and diagnosed me with chancroid- a rare, tropical STD. I can't possibly imagine HOW I would have gotten it. She's prescribed Cippro again and Tylenol 3 for the pain. I'm on day 2 of the Cippro and think I'm feeling a little better.
All this started after having "normal" sex with my husband- nothing rough or unusual. Could this be a tear? Doc doesn't think so, but has anyone else had a tear hurt this long- 2 months!
Has anyone else had this type of problem with Group B Strep? Again, doc doesn't think so... The tear or strep reaction sounds much more likely that the rare, tropical STD.
Please help before I have to see Dr. House and almost die before getting better... ;~]
