I have been prone to nasal infections, polyps. Four surgeries. And ingested various and a lot of antibiotics. In the past 3 1/2 yrs. I have been plagued with intestinal problems. Did the tests, colonoscopy etc. all normal. Is it possible that all of the antibiotics have affected my stomach? I am 83 yrs of age. And is there another way to treat this persistent nasal infection?
I choose not to visit my next door neighbor who had Pseudomonas Bacterium 7 months ago, had the potent cocktail antibiotic treatment and still has flareups and is in and out of the hospital frequently. Since I usually have bronchitis every winter and had pneumonia twice a year ago, I assume my immune system may not be healthy enough to prevent getting Pseudomonas Bacterium from my neighbor. Am I being overly cautious or is it safe for me to be around the person? Thanks.
She wants me to go back on antibiotics and a foam although I don't Haney any type of pimple on my head. I am overall healthy, however, I work in the healthcare field. Is it possible to have this bacteria on my scalp without it doing anything harmful? Should i take more antibiotics? I was not in a hot tub but the water that comes out of my shower turns pink rather quickly when standing. Thanks for your help....
A nebulizer can be contaminated with pseudomonas. If you are using a nebulizer, talk with your doctor about switching to inhalers. Pseudomonas may be found in the lungs, but does not always cause an infection. If the pseudomonas is causing an infection, you may need to be treated with intravenous antibiotics. Typically the odds of recovery from pseudomonas are not very good. It may be controlled, but may not be eliminated.
I found a good ENT in Anchorage that took cultures - it was pseudomonas again. Been on antibiotics, etc. He said that I have biofilms. Been flushing like crazy. That doctor moved to Guam. He sent me last fall to another doctror-- started all over again- yes, culture turned up psedomonas two more times- Now I am using a gentamicin nasal rinse 2x's a day. Been doing it since middle of Dec. Now the asthma gets bad when I get any ear ach or infection.
It is possible that the disease progressed faster since he was not on any antibiotics. Another key element for someone to become infected with pseudomonas is that their immune system be weakened in some way, such as overwhelming stress or illness. A person infected with pseudomonas may infect another person at any time. However they are more likely to infect another person when they have a flare up.
I went to the doctor who took a swab and gave me an antifungal/hydrocortisone cream. I applied this for a week until the doctor phoned to say pseudomonas was present from the swab. I was then put on amoxicillin tablets, metronidazole tablets and metronidazole topical gel for 10 days. After 10 days there was no cure so I attended the STD clinic. All tests came back negative although the doc then gave me more hydrocortisone cream which I used for 2 weeks.
My 15 year old son has been treated with antibotics for a month now, for an ear infection. first amox. then bactrium, and final a culture was done on the drainage. He has pseudomonas in his ear and was getting the wrong treatment. He is now on cipro orally and tobramycin ear drops. Has anyone ever had this before and will the treatment work, will it go away or not and how long before the antibotics kicks in.
pseudomonas aeruginosa & antibiotics
Hello, I was been diagnosed with pseudomonas aeruginosa in my lungs in early sept. colonization was designated as heavy. I was on 2 different antibiotics back to back with little change. I then was on intravenious antibiotics and after 3 week I now am on a nebulizer inhaling gentamicin. My doctor told me it would take at least 5 months to destroy the bacteria. What are the prospects of eliminating that bacteria and what would I need to avoid to keep from getting it again.
I've been sick with a sinus infection for 8 months, had a culture and pseudomonas was found. Had sinus surgery then IV antibiotics for 2 months. I have also been recently diagonsed with bronchiectasis. The research I have done suggests the cause for these to happen at the same time is autoimmune disorder like Hashimotos, CF, AIDS or lymphoma. I don't have anything but the Hashimoto's. My doc has never treated a case caused from Hashimoto's.
I use Mucomyst and saline lavage to loosen things up, but bacteria still love me. Since February, I have been suffering recurrent Pseudomonas aeruginosa, lately Pseduomonas cepacia. My doc has me on TOBI nebs (every other month), and I just went through about 3 weeks of IV Zosyn (had pneumonia). Currently, my P. cepacia is colonized with no active infection. My question is this....what is the best course of treatment of a ventilated person with chronic pseudomonas infections?
She has been dealing with asthma since she was young (I know, smoking wasn't smart- my sister and I used to get so frustrated with her), but I think there was always something more there, and the way she explained it to me was that the issues were always there, smoking just exasperated it (most 29 year old smokers don't have the problems she used to have). The doctors did find pseudomonas in her lungs, and I believe she was diagnosed with COPD (could've been another lung disease).
Pseudomonas is typically a very hard bacteria to kill and becomes drug resistant when antibiotics are used very often. My daughter had pseudomonas several months ago and had to have her ear swabbed and cultured. The pseudomonas was resistant to all the drug classses but the newest cyclosporin. She has had chronic ear infections since she was a baby (she's 13).
This is the third time this year (total of 7 imes in under 2 years). He is treated everytime with oral antibiotics. We are all very weary of it and worried about his long term health and also our financial health. Things are not great all round. I wonder if anyone could help me with this question - could a drug be responsible for my husband contracting pseudamonas? My husband has had asthma had excema since birth and has been receiving treatment for both since.
Last year he was diagnosed with pseudonomas A (in the throat) in mass quantities. They tried numerous antibiotics to no avail. He is also seeing a homeopathic doctor who has him on a very limited diet, which seems to have positively affected the numerous respiratory infections he was getting...while we used to be at the doc's office about every two weeks, he has been four plus months without a respiratory infection. And the last count in the summer on PA, it appeared gone.
I am having a PIC line inserted so can have proper antibiotics administered. Is there anything else?
I also havfe asthma. I recently was told I have pseudomonas in my lungs. I take 1200 mgs of mucinex daily and use a acapella to help vibrate the lungs. Is there anything else that I can do in treating the pseudomonas. I wake up every morning full of congestion in my chest and cough for about 2 hrs in the morning and then through out the day. It is a productive cough. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/283055'>Pseudomonas</a>.
hello, I have long term COPD and am on Combivent UVD's and Prednisolone and Spiriva, Symbicort, Uniphyllin, Erodotin and various antibiotics. I was recently in hospital and was in isolation because of MRSA and was discharged. Before I was discharged I was told that I had tested for Pseudomonas and it was present and it looked as though it was colonizing my lungs.
After 3 additional courses of various antibiotics, I insisted the doctor culture one of the boils. I was found to have pseudomonas and 2 types of staph. Once again she put me on augmentin and 2 weeks later I developed another ear infection. I am now on my 3 course of antibiotics for ear infections. What is my doctor doing wrong?
My daughter was diagnosed with pseudmonas (through a biopsy) six years ago when she was eight years old and treated with antibiotics and skin oitments. That initial outbreak originally looked like she had chiken pox and resulted with about 75 - 100 lesions. Ever since then she has had recurrent outbreaks of maybe 10 - 15 lesions that usually clear up with bactroban.
FEWER NOS. (CULTURES) A PURE MODERATE GROWTH OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA THE SURGEON IS OF THE OPINION THAT THE WOUND (PACEMAKER POCKET ) SHOULD BE CLEANED. AND THE TREATMENT SHALL BE CARRIED OUT WITH THE HELP OF ANTIBIOTICS WHICH WOULD TAKE ABOUT 7 DAYS TIME. PLS COMMENT WHETHER NO REMOVAL OF THE PACEMAKER WILL BE REQUIRED? AND CAN THIS INFECTION BE TREATED WITH ANTIBIOTICS ALONE?
Has anyone had eosinophillic pneumonia, MRSA, chronic sinusitis, and pseudomonas concurrently? I was tested for allergies years ago and took shots for the big ones for years until I negatively reacted to them. Four years ago the eosinophillic pneumonia and MRSA in my sinuses were diagnosed. Over a period of time I have taken multiple courses of steriods and antibiotics -- in one year 14K worth with no success. I have also used a nebulizer.

When parenteral therapy is required, 5 mg/kg/day in divided doses of the aminoglycoside antibiotic tobramycin or gentamicin inhibits most Pseudomonas. Other antibiotics used include amikacin, tobramycin and gentamicin. Several penicillins, including carbenicillin, ticarcillin, piperacillin, mezlocillin, and azlocillin, are active against Pseudomonas.
My doctor took a culture of my nasal passages and it came back positive for pseudomonas and there were 4 types of antibiotics that this strain was sensitive to. The problem is getting the antibiotics into your sinuses and using oral pills are not very efficient and you are supposed to use 2 different types of antibiotics if sensitive to 2 types at the same time. Using the IV method is supposed to be best.
Does IV antibiotics possibly rid a child of pseudomonas? My son, age 7, has been on ongoing oral antibiotics since he was 2! We have tried everything, but the doctor says the pseudomonas he cultured makes it hard for him to completely clear up. We never did the iv antibiotic. Is it worth looking in to? Our fear is that he will get immune to the antibiotic and then be in real danger. Thank you.
I am not sure as what specific symptoms, I grow out pseudomonas on a regular basis in my lungs. I do notice a distinct smell however...kind of like rotting grapes, fruity and sour. Are your secretions green? Pseudo usually yields green junk. The best way to tell if it really is pseudomonas is to get a culture of your sinuses though. If it is, there are meds that can help you, one is oral antibiotics. More stubborn infections might involve nebulized tobramycin via the nostrils.
