“The first question I ask when I have a pap smear (or any other pap smear) is: Is it safe?” says Dr. Jeffrey Tapp, an emergency room physician in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, who has been treating the nation’s more than 5,000 people with a pap smearing rash since he was hired by his local hospital in April 2010.
Tapp has treated more than 1,000 patients in Palm Beaches, most of them women.
His clinic routinely sees between 60 and 80 patients a day.
And while some patients may have received a dose of antibiotics or a corticosteroid, most are treated for a few days before they begin to feel better.
“If they are really sick, I’ll have them go home for a couple days,” Tapp says.
“Sometimes the rash is just too bad.
You know, I’ve had cases where a couple of weeks later, the rash was worse than the disease itself.”
But for many people, that rash will pass.
“A lot of the time, they’re not getting the right dose of medication,” says Dr: James Kallstrom, an infectious disease specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
“You have to get that right dose, because the bacteria will just keep growing.
So the first thing you do is try to get the bacteria under control.”
In many cases, that means a cortisone injection.
If a patient needs a cortisalldine injection, Tapp will often take her to a local pharmacy and order a bottle of a generic.
But if a patient doesn’t need the injection, a doctor will prescribe a different kind of cortisoid.
It’s the kind that’s usually used in hospitals to treat lung infections, and some patients don’t even need it.
It also can be prescribed for conditions like psoriasis, arthritis, and a host of other skin conditions.
While most people do not have an underlying infection, Tapps says, it’s possible to be infected with a new infection.
For some people, a new rash can be the first sign of a serious infection.
In other cases, it can be a sign of more serious illness, such as a fever or cough.
“People with new infections usually go in for the cortisoids and it’s usually an immediate response to their infection,” Kallstrem says.
The most common new infections are pneumonia, which is caused by viruses like influenza and coronavirus.
But some patients can develop pneumonia and develop other infections.
And for some, such infections may be associated with other conditions.
Tapps advises people to see a doctor when they develop any of the following symptoms: a fever over 100.0°F or higher,
