How do you check males for a ureaplasma infection? My wife keeps getting them and i think it could be from me. But my urine is always clear?

Culture or PCR assay: Ureaplasma (u) species are frequently detected in the lower urogenital tracts of healthy adults: 40-80% of asymptomatic and sexually active women and somewhat lower rates in males. Only a subgroup of adults who are colonized in the lower urogenital tract develop symptomatic illness from these organisms. (u) can be detected by culture but requires specialized media and techniques or pcr assays. ...Read more

I have a wound vac from an infection and now when my wife change's it she says it smells like almonds. Should i worry afbout smell?

I have a wound vac from an infection and now when my wife change's it she says it smells like almonds.   Should i worry afbout smell?

Meaningless finding: Wound odor is meaningless. If you remember that part of healing is inflammations which includes (swelling).This is caused by fluid from the blood vessels bringing healing blood to the wound. The blood fluid leaks out and as it does, it loses blood supply which means it will putrefy (rot). That causes odor. Since it is away from the wound, other than the smell, it means nothing. No tx needed. ...Read more

My wife(23) had an ESR test done and the result is 40mm/hour. Does this mean she has an tuberculosis infection?

My wife(23) had an ESR test done and the result is 40mm/hour. Does this mean she has an tuberculosis infection?

No, ESR nonspecific!: The ESR, (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate), is a very nonspecific test. It can be elevated in a great many diseases. Sometimes, when it is very high, it can be more helpful, but only when it's combined with other lab results or symptoms, and can help pinpoint a diagnosis. 40 is not high enough to be very helpful. Other findings on lab, imaging and/or biopsies (if done), must be used to diagnose TB ...Read more

My wife(23) had an ESR test done and the result is 40mm/hour. Does this mean she has an tuberculosis infection?

NO- many causes: An elevated ESR is a common but nonspecific marker for inflammation. This is usually caused by autoimmune inflammatory conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis or Lupus but can also be caused by both acute and chronic infections. It is possible that it could be elevated due to tuberculosis, but there are MANY other possible causes so she needs further more specific testing to see if she has TB. ...Read more

Being treated for a yeast infection on arm. Can i sleep in the same bed as my wife?

Being treated for a yeast infection on arm.  Can i sleep in the same bed as my wife?

Little or no risk: Maybe a non-yeast fungal infection. (Yeast is a type of fungus, but other fungus types usually cause non-genital skin infections.) Not eastily transmitted to others. And the fungus maybe present for months before rash started, so your wife has already been repeatedly exposed. Probably no point in changing sleep arrangements at this time. Check with the doctor treating you if you remain in doubt. ...Read more
