What can be some possible causes for reoccurring bacterial infections?

I have had reoccurring bacterial infections for years now. Just recently my monthly period went away, and my vaginal area was hurting/irritatable. Now I have this discharge, with a slight order and I know that is a sign of some type of bacterial/yeast infection. It seems to come back like 3-4 months after I get the anitbotics.

Does anyone have the answer?

You have an imbalance somewhere. After the antibiotics are over, you need to take probiotics (acidophilus). Health food stores have them. This puts back the friendly bacteria in your body. Cut out the sugary food in your diet, it can spur the growth of yeast infections, they love sugar. You might want to drink natural cranberry juice as well. Good luck.  (+ info)

This started about a year ago.

soap products, over cleaning, bubble bath products, too much coffee, your partner not washing before sex, bruising of the bladder during sex or foreplay, not urinating after sex...lots of reasons..have a look at online resourses for more information and try drinking cranberry juice...fresh not concentrated. parsley tea is also helpful  (+ info)

How long do staph infections usually last?

My dad has had a staph infection for about a week and a half now. He went to the doctor at least five times just this week. They had to some medicine in there. It started out as a boil on his stomach, then it got worse and turned into staph. How long do staph infections usually last?

It depends on the person and the medication being used. It is important to have the dressing changed frequently (as soon as it geets infected). It is also important to eat very well with a lot of protein to promote healing. It is also important to eat plenty foods rich in iron such as leafy green veggies and organ meats. This promotes a greater production of blood which causes more blood to reach the site and fight infection. It is also important to take the prescribed medication as perscribed. It is also important to allow the site to rest and to prevent any additional trauma. Staph can get worse if the person infected doesn;t do the steps above which promote healing and eradicate the bacteria. Staph infections can cause death and can last for the rest of someones life depending on the species of staph.  (+ info)

I keep getting bacterial infections and keep going back to the doctor for medicine. Any suggestions?

I have recurring bacterial infections. I feel like the medicine I am being given to treat the infection is not strong enough and doesn't completely fight off the bacterial. Has anyone been in this situation before and does anyone know anything that can be done?

Well, generally I can say that if the treatment and diagnosis is right there should be no problem. Do you take antibiotics on right dosages and frequency? If antibacterials are suddenly stopped or minimized, drug resistance may occur thereby decreasing it's effectiveness. If that should happen, a "stronger" type of antibiotic is given OR a combination of drugs to increase potency.  (+ info)

What are causing all of my bladder infections?

I have had numerous bladder infections and I am on the second antibiotics they my system as come immune to. I have no idea why I am getting these bladder infections, I have stopped using tampons and I urinate after intercourse I don't know what else to do. Could taking baths every night be the cause? Any ideas what could be causing all of these infections? Is there any way to prevent them?

One way to keep yourself healthy down there is to drink around 8 cups of water a day, it's a natural way to help your body detox. You also may be low in certain vitamins. Or have an STD. When was your last physical that included blood tests? Have you gotten a pap smear this year yet? Another thing you can do is keep yourself extra clean in that region, but try not to get lotion of perfumes there. Use a mild soap to clean yourself. Another factor can be a genetic thing. You may be prone to getting bladder infections. Hope this Info helps. Good Luck & Feel Better!

p.s. if you are going to drink cranberry juice for the bladder infections, make sure to get 100% cranberry juice. Most of them are just pure added sugars, and tons of other juices added to it. You can find the pure cranberry juice in the health section in your supermarket.  (+ info)
