Can Mycoplasma hominis cause vulvar folliculitis?

Vulvar Folliculitis

Folliculitis_vulva
Assuming that the lesions are truly pilo-pustular in origin [see image], the most common bacterial causes are Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas sp. M. hominis is, of course, associated with cervicitis and vaginitis, and very infrequently with vulvovaginitis [photo from Uptodate.com, reproduced with permission from Lynne J Margesson, MD]

Is Mycoplasma Hominis a normal vaginal pathogen or is it an STI?

Family practice

Condom
Mycoplasma hominus is considered a STD. Many times it is self limiting and requires no treatment if Asymptomatic. If you have a discharge and have pain it should be treated. It is so small of an organism that it is difficult to discover

Ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma hominis--causes of infertility?

Maybe miscarriages

Antibiotics
Ureaplasma & mycoplasma hominis have been implicated in single miscarriages or recurrent pregnancy losses. The studies are not high quality, but it's relatively cheap and easy to give a course of antibiotics to women who have had one or more miscarriages, & their partners. Mycoplasma genitalium may be a cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). See a REI specialist if TTC without success.

Dr. Tony T. Ho answered:

Will Mycoplasma hominis show on a regular vaginal culture like BV will?

No

Bacterial_vaginosis
BV doesn't show on culture, either; diagnosis is by clue cells on microscopy. Mycoplasma has no cell wall, and will not grow on standard culture.. It is a common found colonizer, so the presence is not a diagnosis of infection.

Dr. Emily Altman answered:

Is Mycoplasma hominis something that lives on the skin or only in bodily fluids?

Mycoplasma

Vaginal_infections
Mycoplasma hominis primarily infects the genital tract, although infections of other organs such as the lungs and heart have been described. Mycoplasma hominis can also be transmitted to neonate during birth and may cause systemic infections. The Mycoplasma that affects the lungs most often is Mycoplasma pneumoniae. It doesn't live on the skin surface.

Is there an antibiotic that will work to get rid of both enterococcus faecalis and mycoplasma hominis at the same time?

Dual Organisms

Antibiotic
Yes, there are several. In your case, you had a reported culture and sensitivity (C&S) lab study that specifically tested the bacteria that have affected you with a panel of antibiotics. Since there is increasing antibiotic resistance emerging with many strains, only your individual C&S should be interpreted for you, not generalized to all patients.

For a Vaginal infection caused by Mycoplasma Hominis, I am aware Doxy is the chosen med, but for how long? Heard Mycoplasma can be stubborn.

Mycoplasma Hominis,

Vaginitis
M. hominis is generally susceptible in vitro to tetracyclines (eg, doxycycline). Fluoroquinolones, such as ciprofloxacin and moxifloxacin, are usually active in vitro against M. hominis. Chloramphenicol MICs are relatively high for M. hominis (2 to 25 mcg/ml), M. hominis is generally resistant to the macrolides (erythromycin, azithromycin, clarithromycin), aminoglycosides, sulfonamides, etc.)
