July 20th, 2016 - dentist prescribed Amoxicillin for 3 weeks prior to removal of infected tooth.  I felt that was too long a time to be on an antibiotic.  Within days I had a severe yeast infection.

August 2016 - still having problems with yeast infection.  Dentist told me to purchase some probiotics from the pharmacy.  They did not help.

September 2016 - yeast infection and rash spreading all over genital area.  Dentist prescribed meds.  Did not get rid of problem.

Went to Family doctor who prescribed meds that cleared up yeast.  Used over the counter ointment for rash.  

October 2016 returned to dentist and asked why I was told to take so much Amoxicillin.  No response.  No apology.

November 2016 last dentist appointment for fitting of bottom partial. Have not been back.

December 2016 still healing from severe rash that covered large area including anus, down the tops of my legs.  It felt like second degree burns.


January 20, 2017 - found lump on left lymph node.  Family doctor Haydel prescribed more Amoxicillin.  Again I got a yeast infection that I treated with over the counter meds that cleared it up.  Discontinued Amoxicillin and will no longer take that medicine.

February 6, 2017 - returned to Family doctor to inform that antibiotic was not reducing the lymph node.  He recommended a CAT Scan scheduled for February 9th.  Referred me to ENT Dr. Beyer.

February 22, 2017 had appointment with ENT doctor.  He looked at my CAT Scan and then down my throat with light and saw an ulcer at the base of my tongue.

Scheduled biopsy of ulcer, lymph node, and removal of left tonsil for March 6, 2017 at Gulf Coast Surgery Center. 

March 9th back to Dr. Beyer due to running a fever of 101.  Gave antibiotic liquid and Steroid liquid for inflammation.

March 11th back for checkup with Dr. Beyer and he informed me that the ulcer was not a tumor and that the results of biopsy were "Inconclusive".  Wants to run more blood work.  Mentioned Autoimmune Syndrome as possible cause.  (I don't agree) 

If it is an Autoimmune Disease  - the high doses of antibiotic could have had something to do with my symptoms.  I want another biopsy done, a larger portion of tissue to see if anything was missed.

Could be something called Serum Sickness (immune system overreaction to injected proteins such as those found in cephalosporins, penicillins, or sulfonamides)

Examples of conditions related to generalized ( disease of the lymph nodes) Lymph node enlargement is recognized as a common sign of infectious, autoimmune, or malignant disease.

Epstein-Barr virus (herpes virus that causes infectious mononucleosis and is associated with certain types of cancers)

Toxoplasmosis (parasitic disease acquired from contact with cats or their feces or with raw or undercooked meat) - I have 3 cats

Serum sickness (immune system overreaction to injected proteins such as those found in cephalosporins, penicillins, or sulfonamides)

Next appointment scheduled for March 15th.
