Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

There are many infections that can be treated with metronidazole. It has activity against certain bacteria and parasites. I prescribe it most often for vaginal infections, as it can treat both bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas vaginitis. It can be used for other bacterial infections, such as H. pylori stomach infections and anaerobic infections in various locations. It can be used for other parasitic infections, such as amebiasis or giardiasis (both of which affect the GI tract).

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
