    Psudomonus in Cerebral Palsy Children

    Hi, Im new to this forum and just want to know if anyone else has had come across Psudomonus in cerebral palsy children. My younger sister (3yrs) has just been diagnosed with it and we have basically been told to expect the worse.

    My sister has cerebral palsy, severe epilepsy, scoliosis of the spine with rods and various other issues.

    I have been told that she has psudomonus but I am not sure what it is and how it will affect her.

    If anyone could help answer these questions then I would really apprciate it.

    Thank You

    Is it the same as Pseudomonas? I googled around a bit and found out that it is a bacterium which causes infections in people whose immune system is weak.

    thank you so much for that. I think we must be talking about the same thing.

    We have been told by the doctors that she is riddled with it an it will eventually get the better of her.

    I feel so alone at the moment becuase my sister lives in new zealand with my dad and step mum and I feel like i cant to anything to help.

    I know this thread was posted months ago, but if the author is still around just want to let you know. Pseudo monas folliculitus is a water borne bacteria, quite common in hydrotherapy pools. My little one with CP contracted this, it manifested itself as a reoccuring nasty red pus filled pimple on her chin, after a swab it came back that it was Pseudo monas folliculitus.

    I have found that the bacteria can also be found in bath toys and baby baths, so I regularly bleach these items, tough I do believe she contracted it at her hydro pool. Usually this infection will run it's course and clear up spontaniously but if it doesn't then a course of highly potent antibiodics are in order.

    I hope that your childs cleared up by itself.
