Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

Where are you currently infected with Staphylococcus?

Do you have the culture report that says the type of Staphylococcus and the sensitivity to antibiotics?

I am at work now . I cannot attach it now.
But can you tell me what type would actually infect the virginal?
The cause and the cure.

Hello Dr.
Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 10 months ago

There are several strains of Staphylococcus, but none are common to infect the vagina.

The treatment would vary according to which strain and sensitivity is present. That is why I am asking for the culture report.

If you want to respond later when you are not at work and provide the culture report, then I can better answer your question.

Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Very good. You can wait and respond to this message when you have the information.

I have not heard back with the culture report. Have you tried to attach the report?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
