Infection (Definition)

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more

Is trich infection finally gone. Toook antibiotics about a month ago and until about last week my symptoms have finally decreased. All except oder.?

Go for another eval: For persistent or reoccuring symptoms, one should be reevaluated in case there is re-infection, incomplete treatment, or infection with other pathogens. Most importantly, one should abstain from risky behavior and use barrier protection (condoms). Your sexual partner also needs to be treated at the same time. ...Read more

I just found out I have trich, I got it 3 yrs ago, & both me&my partner were treated. Could it be this is not a new infection but the dormant old one?

I just found out I have trich, I got it 3 yrs ago, & both me&my partner were treated. Could it be this is not a new infection but the dormant old one?

This isn't a simple?: Have you had Trichomonas for three years without knowing? Not likely, but not impossible. Are you heterosexual? It's unlikely a male would have had this witout symptoms either. Did you both take all medication exactly as prescribed? And have you used any sex toys that were not completely sterilized? Have you had a pelvic exam since then, your doctor would have seen this. Reinfection seems probable ...Read more

Can a yeast infection develop into something else like vaginosis or trich? I've a yeast infection for a while and want to know what could happen if not treated

Can a yeast infection develop into something else like vaginosis or trich? I've a yeast infection for a while and want to know what could happen if not treated

A: A yeast infection will likely go away on it's own if left untreated, but may not. It can lead to chronic discharge and itching, and a lot of unnecessary discomfort. The yeast will not develop into a bacterial vaginosis, however you can develop a secondary bacterial infection, meaning both yeast and bacteria are present at the same time. Also, yeast can not develop into trichomoniasis. This is an std (sexually transmitted disease) and requires treatment.
Is there a reason why you are not treating your yeast infection? Are you sure it's yeast? Have you seen your doctor? If not I recommend you make an appointment for a proper exam, diagnosis, and treatment, especially if you are concerned about std's.
Good luck. ...Read more

Would Monistat 1 (tioconazole) treat trich or BV symptoms. If Monistat works on itch and there was no odor/discharge, just itch/soreness was it a yeast infection?

Would Monistat 1 (tioconazole) treat trich or BV symptoms. If Monistat works on itch and there was no odor/discharge, just itch/soreness was it a yeast infection?

Only yeast: Trichomonas or BV do not respond to miconazole. One shouldn't make a diagnosis by response to medication, but rather by direct evidence, in this case culture, microscopic analysis, or observation. ...Read more

I got treated for "trich"5days ago I haven't had sex. I'm still discharging thick white yellowish but it smells like an antibiotic smell. Is this normal?

I got treated for "trich"5days ago I haven't had sex. I'm still discharging thick white yellowish but it smells like an antibiotic smell. Is this normal?

Treatment: It can take several days for trichomonas symptoms to clear up. Trich often gives strong odor (typically fishy), so maybe it's from trich itself, not the antibiotic. (As far as I know, the antibiotics for trich have no odor.) Single dose treatment (usually metronidazole) works only 90% of the time, i.e. 10% of patients need longer treatment. Return to doctor if discharge still there at 10 days. ...Read more

In a monogamous relationship. Painful urination. Tested 4 uti, bv, yeast, trich, all neg. Treated 4 STI with antibiotics. Symptoms are now worse.?

Painful urination: These symptoms could relate to 'trauma' or small cuts that might have occurred from sexual activity -if all these tests are coming up negative. Knowing more details about your sexual activity could shed light on that. Sometimes STI's can be tricky though -herpes for example can occur inside the urethra (where you can't see it). Try pouring warm water over vulva while you pee. You should see MD. ...Read more

There are many drugs available that are less expensive, less likely to alter your normal flora, and just as likely to cure your bladder infection. ...Read more

I have a stubborn skin infection that has been treated with antibiotics for 4 weeks now. No improvement. What could my dr try next? I am concerned

Need right diagnosis: Diagnosis needs to be re-evaluated. Maybe it is not infection. Was a culture taken or any other test to confirm that this is an infection. If it is an infection, it is essential to determine what type: bacteria, fungus, virus etc. The diagnosis should be as specific as possible so that proper treatment can be obtained. Sometimes an incision is needed to drain the infection out. Discuss with your d. ...Read more

What is an easy way to treat a male yeast infection caused by antibiotics?

What is an easy way to treat a male yeast infection caused by antibiotics?

Where is it?: Do you have thrush in your mouth? Diarrhea? A rash? Any or all of these can be caused by a yeast infection after antibiotic use. Since you specify "male, " I am guessing that you have a rash in the genital area. Use an over-the-counter fungal cream and see if that helps. Nystatin or clotrimazole can help, for itch relief sooner can mix it half and half with hydrocortisone cream: 7 days max. ...Read more

How do I treat a presistent sinus infection without ingesting antibiotics?

Nasal irrigation: Sometimes irrigating the nose with large volumes of saline can help improve the nose's ability to clean itself. I have found that using the "neil-med" nasal irrigation system can be of some benefit. Decongestants can also be of help. If you have an allergic history antihistamines can be of benefit. You also want to make sure that you have the right diagnosis. Many times people think they have a sinus infection when they don't. ...Read more

Best antibiotic for a spider bite infection that was not treated with dicloxicillin?

Unlikely: To have been a spider bite. Most of these (unless you have actually seen and identified the spider as a black widow or brown recluse), are community acquired infection with methicillin-resistant staph aureus (mrsa). Many of these are sensitive to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or Doxycycline or sometimes clindamycin. Dicloxacillin is unlikely to be effective. ...Read more

I have several symptoms which go away whenever I have taken antibiotics. How can I find a doctor that will treat these symptoms as an infection?

I have several symptoms which go away whenever I have taken antibiotics. How can I find a doctor that will treat these symptoms as an infection?

Seems backwards.: Maybe your symptoms would go away without antibiotics? Infection is usually heralded by swelling, redness, pain, warmth and sometimes more generalized symptoms. If your symptoms don't match then antibiotics may not be for you and you should consider treating with something else. Seems you should look for a doctor who can understand your symptoms and treat them. ...Read more

Is Doxylag considered a suitable antibiotic to treat a mycoplasma genitalium infection? If not, please advise which antibiotic is more preferred

Is Doxylag considered a suitable antibiotic to treat a mycoplasma genitalium infection? If not, please advise which antibiotic is more preferred

Not reliable: Doxycycline (Doxylag and other brands) sometimes works against M. genitalium but is not reliable. However, doxy is one of the best treatments for nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), even though 10-15% of NGU is due to MG. If you have a proved MG infection (positive test) or have NGU that didn't respond to doxy or azithromycin, ask your doctor about moxifloxacin. ...Read more
