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
No: A yeast infection is an infection of the vagina and the opening of the vagina. It will not cause an infection in the cervix or uterus. The over the counter meds to treat yeast and pretty effective. Yeast grows due to sugar, so if you have yeast stop all sugar, carbs, fruit, pop, alcohol. ...Read more
I was recently treated for a cervical infection, I'm not sure it fully went away because it still burns a little and I have vaginal itching. Any help?
I went for a check up at the gynecologist and my tests came back with acute cervical infection. Dr mentioned that it might be HVP. No further tests done and no real solution given. Should I go for further tests?
I had a cervical infection and treated with doxycycl hyc 14 days but I still have burning and now itching with little things sticking out on my vagina?
Yeast infection?: Doxycycline (Doxycyl®) can trigger yeast infections by suppressing normal bacteria and allowing yeast to grow and your symptoms are typical (except I don't know about the "little things sticking out"). See the doctor who prescribed the treatment. I hope you also were checked for STDs, especially gonorrhea and chlamydia, the main causes of cervicitis or "cervical infection". ...Read more

Help plz! Can primary koch's infection in children develop even if it is not transmitted by another person?
Koch's infx/TB: Tuberculosis just doesn't develop - you catch it from someone who is infected. It is only transmitted human to human, so you need to be exposed to someone who either has an active case or is a carrier. Many people worldwide are unaware they are infected, are asymptomatic carriers. That's why when someone is diagnosed with TB, everyone around them they've had contact with need to be evaluated. ...Read more

Parotitis: The parotid gland (and to a lesser extent, the submandibular gland) can become infected, sometimes in association with a salivary stone. An entity of "recurrent parotitis of childhood" is a relatively common cause of repeated salivary infections in kids. Sometimes it isn't the gland itself, but a lymph node in the gland that is what is infected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: On the age of the child and whether its sinus congestion or sinus infection. Sinus infections when serious rarely resolve with supportive care alone. Congestion on the other hand can improve significantly though temporarily with eucalyptus and/or peppermint. These measures should be avoided in young children. ...Read more
Try xylitol solution: I don't know of any herbal remedies, but if the child can inhale a solution of xylitol and warm water (1/4 tsp xylitol in a pint of warm water) into his nose _ not into lungs, that should help by making to bacteria slippery and easier to get oit of the body. Gargling may help too. ...Read more

Dear doctr i av been told i av infection in ma cervix so what coulf be the causes effects and bect medication?
Probably HPV: If you were just told of the infection and not given medication, this is likely hpv; hpv is a virus that is ssexually transmitted, and what it is known for is the potential to cause cervical cancer. That being said, the majority of women will clear the infection without issues; however, it is important to get annual screens or more frequent as long as you have atypical cells on pap. ...Read more

Yes it is infection: The cause of cervix cancer is now confirmed to be a virus called Human Papilloma virus(HPV). There is now an effective vaccine which is recommended for all children between 11 to 13 years of age. The vaccine is highly effective in preventing this cancer and related other cancers.

Interesting.: Cervical cancer is caused by a virus that if left unattenddd can become cancer. But i don't suppose this is the kind of infection you were concerned about. The answer to that is no. Other kinds of infection do not become cancer. But cervical infections should be treated as they may impair your fertility later in life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do I know if I have an infection after having cryosurgery of the cervix? I'm still getting some discharge.
No short ans.: After a cryo procedure you can have watery brown discharge for 4-6 weeks! after 3 weeks it should be less each week. If you have foul odor, then you may have a bacterial infection. Hopefully you were asked about risk for std before the procedure. It is not mandatory to test for std especially if you are over 26 and in a monogamous relationship, but if worried, call your doc. ...Read more
I got swabbed for some kind of infection. However, I also have a family history of cervical cancer. Will the swabs they took also look for that?
Not really: Getting swabbed for infection in association with family history of cervix Ca suggests the swab was vaginal in origin. If done by Gyn a Pap may have been requested. If ordered by infectious disease MD only cultures may be taken and no formal Pap smear performed. One would have to speak with LMD having taken the smear. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 5 days after cervical biopsy not knowing I shouldn't. What's the risk? What are the symptoms of an infection?
Can lymph nodes stay swollen for 7 months after mono infection. Lymph nodes are bilateral in post. cervical area 1.3 cm or less. I touch them everyday?
Yes, not abnormal: Once inflamed and enlarged, sometimes lymph nodes never return to previous normal size. If you're otherwise well, it doesn't mean anything if you can still feel them. Anyway, repeated touching -- especially if you poke hard to find them, rub them, etc -- can cause further inflammation, keeping them large. I suggest you vow to keep your hands off for the next month. You may they find they're gone. ...Read more
