Can mycoplasma hominis cause vulvar folliculitis?

Can mycoplasma hominis cause vulvar folliculitis?

Vulvar Folliculitis: Assuming that the lesions are truly pilo-pustular in origin [see image], the most common bacterial causes are staphylococcus and pseudomonas sp. M.

Mycoplasma ferventes can it be cured?

Unclear: I'm not sure if you are referring to mycoplasma fermentans or not. There is the thought that it has a role in gulf war syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, and "chronic" lyme disease, but treatments like months and months of IV antibiotics, i'd imagine, would fall outside of mainstream medical care. I'd defer, however, to my infectious disease colleagues to see if they can add any thoughts. ...Read more

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,: 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.). ...Read more

What are some common genera of pathogenic bacteria that have no species found in the human body naturally? Borrelia? Brucella? Yersinia? Mycoplasma?

What are some common genera of pathogenic bacteria that have no species found in the human body naturally? Borrelia? Brucella? Yersinia? Mycoplasma?

The Microbiome...: Great thought question. However, you are assuming we know all the community of species of bacteria in the body (aka. The microbiome).

Recently, we have discovered thousands of genera in our body through molecular techniques (most don't even have a name yet). Though it's tempting to generalize, the question you pose can't be answered with any reliability with what we know today. ...Read more

Had a mycoplasma and ureaplasma vaginal swab test done while I was on nitrofurantoin for something unrelated. Can this possibly cause false negative?

Had a mycoplasma and ureaplasma vaginal swab test done while I was on nitrofurantoin for something unrelated. Can this possibly cause false negative?

No: Nitrofurantoin is used almost exclusively for either the treatment or prevention of a lower urinary tract infection (aka bladder infection, cystitis). It has no activity that I am aware of against either mycoplasma or ureaplasma and would therefore not cause a false negative vaginal swab test for these 2 organisms. ...Read more

Hi doc wondering why do I have greenish discharge but I do not have chlamydia, gonorrhoea or mycoplasma what is the cause of green vaginal discharge?

Hi doc wondering why do I have greenish discharge but I do not have chlamydia, gonorrhoea or mycoplasma what is the cause of green vaginal discharge?

Infection? Trich?: Colored vaginal discharge usually indicates infection. You don't mention trichomonas, which might be possible. Trich has been almost eliminated in urban Australia, so I would expect a test to be negative. Still, it should be checked by PCR test. Consider consultation at the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre. Australia's SHCs are the world's best such clinics, and MSHC is the best of the best. ...Read more

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama, trich all negative. No std found.?

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama, trich all negative. No std found.?

Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more

Is there ANY safe antibiotics nursing moms can take to cure Mycoplasma? Have bad throat pain & neck lymph node I want to cure & get rid of this! Help

Is there ANY safe antibiotics nursing moms can take to cure Mycoplasma? Have bad throat pain & neck lymph node I want to cure & get rid of this! Help

Doubt mycoplasma: Mycoplasma pneumoniae causes respiratory infections, but it's not a common cause of sore throat or inflamed nodes in the neck. This sounds more like a garden variety viral infection, and no antibiotic will help. Or maybe strep throat? Check with your doctor: if s/he believes M pneumoniae or strep is likely, then azithromycin would be effective and is safe for nursing babies. ...Read more

Can men be treated easily for mycoplasma hominis?

No need, no worries: Mycoplasma hominis is an entirely normal bacteria in the genital tract, present commonly in healthy people. Testing for M hominis is rarely necessary, and no need for treatment, including the sex partners of people with positive tests. If you or a partner has the STD nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), MH is not the cause, but NGU still needs treatment -- also his sex partner (s). ...Read more

Help docs, is having mycoplasma really serious and could having it long term effect on you?

Several kinds: There are a few kinds of Mycoplasma. M. pneumoniae causes bronchitis and pneumonia, usually not very serious. M. hominis is a normal bacteria in the genital tract. M. genitalium, also in the genital tract, is sexually transmitted and causes the STD nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men and maybe cervical and tubal infection in women. But even this is not known to have any serious long term effect. ...Read more
