~Staph Infection in mouth~ Please help if u can....
Hi to all, my name is Aymee. I have just been diagnosed with a staph infection in my mouth. This is the first time I have ever had anything like this in my life.
I went to a doctor who could never diagnose it for close to 2 months. He stated that he was not able to do any kind of a culture etc. for this type of thing. He kept giving me Nystatin telling me it was thrush.
Anyway, I knew that something else was wrong due to the swelling and irritation in my mouth. So, I went to another doctor (Thank the good Lord) who did blood tests and a culture right away. In his words "It is the oddest staff bacteria" he has ever observed. He has put me on a antibiotic that is making me very sick.
To be honest I am getting a little worried after reading other posts on how difficult it is to get rid of. If anyone has ever heard of oral staph or has any suggestions please reply.

I would try collodial silver, you can get it in health food stores, ask someone in the store, how many times a day to use. Or swish your mouth out with it and swallow 3-4 times a day.( is what I would do)
Here's a link to information about staphylococcus bacteria. The most important aspect is identifying the strain because staph has a reputation for mutating and a few strains are resistant to some of the more commonly used antibiotics.

i have a small infection in my mouth too that is bacteria origin.. seems like it took 2 weeks of antibiotics and lots listerine to reduce the infection. there are no symptoms... but like you mentioned.. it is tough to get rid of it..
i will continue my quest to get rid of these little bacteria and update the forum. the infection is red with the center being whitish. and a few spots in a localized area of the mouth (close to the saliva gland)
had a tooth extraction.. not sure if there is where i got it from?
hope to get rid of it and update you guys.. i have been on antibiotics for 2 straight weeks. stopped this week and using a solution called WOKADINE antiseptic gargle.
hope it gets even smaller and disappear.
