Dear Dr. Kitee

I have visisted your thai website many times.  May i request you to
answer the question, thank you.I have SLE,  can i have a free
vaccination for preventing bird flue ? Here in my country, they provide
the freevaccin which is supported by GermanEmbassy.I want to see
a dentist in order to treat my tooth painful but I am afraid that they
may not know SLE.  Please could you advise how a dentist should
do with my tooth, thank you.Hoping very much to get your reply
back soon,


Answer

- If your SLE is stable and in controlled,  you can have the vaccination

- The SLE patient who want to have dental procederre need some
premedication, that is the taking of antibiotic such as amoxycillin 1 gram
(2 capsule) before and after the procedure to prevent infection from
organism in the oral cavity.
