Streptococcus Viridans Symptoms
Let me explain: The organisms are most abundant in the mouth, and one member of the group, s. Mutans, is the etiologic agent of dental caries in most cases and populations. Others may be involved in other mouth or gingival infections. If they are introduced into the bloodstream, they have the potential of causing endocarditis, particularly in individuals with damaged heart valves.
Is a group of bacteria that grown in long chains of cocci (round cells). They are classified in part by whether they hemolyze sheep red blood cells completely, partial or not at all. The beta (complete) hemolysis ones are further classified by their capsules and the prototype is group a streptococci, that cause strep throat and rheumatic fever. The Alpha (partial) ...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.See 1 more doctor answer
Is streptococcus pneumoniae and streptococcus viridans the same exact bacteria? Or is it a type of viridans?
UTI: This would be a very unusual cause of UTI and would question the diagnosis and the manner in which the urine culture was obtained. It can conceivably happen but would be quite uncommon.
Strep viridans: This is the name of a group of bacteria comprising different species of streptococci, some of which may produce uti, but this is not a very common cause of UTI and would question the validity of the diagnosis depending upon the manner in which the urine specimen for culture was obtained.
My boyfriend has streptococcus viridans in his urine. My doctor said it's not necessary to treat? Why not? Can this be harmful to him? And cause uti?
S. viridans: Is most likely from contamination of the urine specimen and not the cause of infection. That is why your doctor is not treating it.
My boyfriend has streptococcus viridans in his urine. The doctor said it's not necessary to treat? Why not? I'm pregnant and worried I might catch it
Treat: You should treat if you have the infection.
I have streptococcus viridans in my mouth. I'm pregnant and due any day now. Can I kiss my baby when he's born with this bacteria in my mouth?
No problem: Strep viridans is considered a "commensal organism" which means it is a normal colonizer in our mouths. It is not a pathogen in it's normal location, and it only becomes a problem when people who have heart valve problems have dental work. Kiss your baby to your heart's content! And congratulations :).See 2 more doctor answers

Do you treat a streptococcus carrier if there are no symptoms, only a positive rapid strep test? When do you treat?
Need more info: Why was the test done, if there were no symptoms? Did you confirm the rapid strep with a culture? If there are no symptoms, there is no need to treat a test result that may not have been done properly. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Fever: Before streptococcus enters blood stream, there is usually some site in the body that is already infected and fever is a likely early symptom. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

My wife got streptococcus a (infected from our kid) but doesn't have any symptoms of illness, should she take antibiotics?
Antibiotics: The best thing to do is for your wife to contact her primary doctor and discuss streptococcus. If the doctor cannot see her for some time, please take her to the Emergency facility. Hope all goes well.
