Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

The brown blood is likely from the forgotten tampon.

Dr. K. :

It may continue to come out for a week or so as your body cleanses itself, its normal

Dr. K. :

Erythromycin does not work well for a uti.

Dr. K. :

Better choices are Bactrim, Cipro, or Macrobid
