I have red raw spots inside the top left side of my lip. Bottom left is swollen with raw like spots. Could it be a bacterial infection?

I have red raw spots inside the top left side of my lip. Bottom left is swollen with raw like spots. Could it be a bacterial infection?

Fever blisters: These sound like 'fever blisters' or an oral herpes infection (HSV-1). Not sure if you have a new partner or have been kissing someone new? Most likely this is a viral infection-although bacteria are still on the list since the mouth has many bacteria (think of bad breath in the morning). Best to show this to a doctor. There are antivirals for herpes, and antibiotics for things like Strep or Staph ...Read more

Have a spot on outer vagina lips. Small smooth black dot. Just showed up one day. Just had pregnancy test, bacterial infection/STI Testing. All clean.

Pigmented lesion: This could be due to several things-- a vascular lesion, or a melanocytic (nevus-like) lesion. Given the small size and smooth surface, it is unlikely to be a problem, though if it is a melanocytic lesion, it bears watching, and possible removal if any enlargement of other change occurs. Vulvar melanoma is uncommon, but may develop from long-ignored precursor lesions. ...Read more

My 7 year old son have bumps in his head, his doctor said its a bacteria infection. I want to know is it normal?

Anywhere you scratch: You can get a bacterial infection anywhere you scratch, which includes the scalp. Kids pick up a collection of various germs on their hands and under their fingernails.Any time they scratch, it's like plowing a field and planting seeds. It's not an everyday occurrence but I've seen it in the office occasionally. ...Read more

Separate problems: Neither HSV2 nor genital herpes can cause altered breath or groin odor, and herpes rarely causes recurrent inflammation or irritation in the groin. These are entirely separate problems. Your question is cut off at "bells", but maybe you mean Bell's palsy? That problem can be related to HSV1, but rarely if ever to HSV2. Discuss w/ your doctor, or get truly expert care at your nearby NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more

Skin cancer?: When a skin lesion fails to heal and not associated with burning or itching, one should get checked for skin cancer. The fact that it was infected 6 months ago might be due to scratching thereby introducing bacteria into the lesion. It is only prudent to see a dermatologist to make sure that it is not a skin cancer. ...Read more

My boyfriend gave me a bacterial infection and clymidia I took my medicine for the clymidia 2days before I gave him oral sex can I have it in my mouth?

Possibly, but:: If your boyfriend was recently treated for STD it's unlikely
that you would have been exposed to it. Even if you were exposed to it orally it's unlikely that you would develop symptomatic oral chlamydial pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat from viral or bacterial infection), because this is rare. It is not recommended to do routine oral chlamydia testing on patients who perform oral sex. ...Read more

How I prevent bacterial infections caused by my child in putting his dirty fingers in his mouth?

Normal kid behavior: Kids often put their fingers into their mouths. That is normal behavior for children. The best that parents can do is to keep the children's environment fairly clean, and avoid places with obvious disease risks. A parent cannot constantly follow a child around and watch the child's hands, but giving the child gentle instructions every now and then is fine to do. ...Read more

I have a sinus infection and when they tested the bacteria it came back positive for trich, how?

Trichimonas sinus: It is not out of the realm of possibility that a vaginal bacteria could potentially infect a non vaginal site. For a bacteria to grow it needs a warm site and the sinus could be that site. As long as you treat it with the appropriate antibiotic that it clears the infection. I see no problem. Wash your hands thoroughly when using the restroom or after any contact with that area. ...Read more

I have an esophagal yeast infection I'm taking medications to kill the bacteria but I still seem to be feeling worse why?

Jarrish-Herxheimer: This is perhaps due to a few things. However most likely is what is called a jarrish herxheimer reaction, which is the body cleaning out the debris from the die off of all the yeast. This usually just lasts a few days and you will start to feel better.
The other possibility is a reaction to the medication. Depending on which medication you are taking, it could be affecting your liver. ...Read more
