Is there a home remedy for treating a vaginal bacterial infection? My doctor said it's not servere enough to prescribe medicine for at the moment.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Difficult to say: This question is so broad, it's hard to answer. There are various 'groups' of people one could look at - from babies, so kids, to adults, and even older folks. Then, you can throw race into the mix, because God made us all different so there's that. Plus, there are different 'regions of the body' that could be infected - like skin, urine, lung etc. I like to go to the CDC website for the best info ...Read more
