Doctor can recheck: A person who knows he has a urine infection can see his doctor to make sure he is getting the correct antibiotic, because some bacteria are resistant to certain antibiotics. After taking antibiotics, he can return to the lab to recheck his urine to make sure the treatment worked. Sometimes, the doctor will do further evaluations to see if there is a second medical problem causing the infection. ...Read more

Twice now, I've had pus-filled spot on gum, which quickly burst causing pain/sensitivity. 3 dentists, 2 x-rays showed no infection. Any idea of cause?

Twice now, I've had pus-filled spot on gum, which quickly burst causing pain/sensitivity. 3 dentists, 2 x-rays showed no infection. Any idea of cause?

Parulis fistula: Is a sign that there is chronic painless infection and your body is draining it out. They do not show up always on an x-ray. Unlike some other types of infection, a chronic gum abscess will not get better on its own. See a periodontist or endodontist for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

My throat culture & sensitivity c/s report says "organism: moderate growth streptococcus viridans group" is this normal, I've white coating on tongue?

Possible fungal...: Overgrowth. If you have cultures, you are probably already on an antibiotic for something. S. Viridens is a common oral bacteria that we all have on some level. Yours may be higher than normal but the white on your tongue could be candidiasis from a lack of "regular" bacteria that keep it down. Try 1/2 hydrogen peroxide/ 1/2 or mouthwash, brush your tongue, if no luck see a dr. May need nystatin. ...Read more

Little pus cells appeared in my semen report, what s the reason?

Little pus cells appeared in my semen report, what s the reason?

Prostatitis likely: Your results could be from prostatitis. When the prostate swells the resulting inflammation can be seen on a semen analysis. If you've had chlamydia or gonorrhea in the past, or if you currently have any form of urethritis, this can result in pus in the semen (pyospermia). Treatment with antibiotics can correct it, reducing pyospermia's impact on fertility. Further testing if not improved. ...Read more

Pus cells 10 to 14 in urine but culture showed no growth. ..Why?

I am 55 female. Urine report shows pus cell- 6-8/HPF, R.C.B'S- 1-2/HPF, EPITHELIAL CELLS 8-10/HPF. Is tht normal?

Contaminated urine: If the urine was collected using good cleaning prior to urination, then it is not normal. If a woman does not use a good clean catch technique then the urine can be contaminated from surrounding secretions. There being more epithelial cells than blood cells indicates that this was most likely a contaminated urine specimen. The urine test should be repeated using good clean catch technique. ...Read more

I am a male aged 22 years Urine test reports show that the pus cells are 3-4 hpf and epithelial cells are 0-2 hpf. Is this normal?

I am a male aged 22 years Urine test reports show that the pus cells are 3-4 hpf and epithelial cells are 0-2 hpf. Is this normal?

3-4-0-2 HIKE!!!: If you don't have any symptoms I wouldn't worry. If you have symptoms, like PWP (Pain While Pissing) I'd need to know a little more about you. There could be lots of reasons to get your urine tested and you didn't say why. Something leaking out? Stain your underwear? Feeling sick (nausea, dizzy, etc)? Fever? Pain elsewhere? Peeing more or less than usual? But just 3-4 per hpf is not too impressive. ...Read more

I just had a routine health check up and my test results showed occult blood and pus and the report said that the odor and color was normal please help?

Go back to your doc: Where is this occult blood and pus? Urine? Stool? Wherever it is, it sounds like this is something that you need to follow up on. Blood and pus are not normal, even if the odor and color are normal. If it's urine, it's possible to have blood and white blood cells in it if you were on your period. ...Read more
