Diagnoses is Questionable
An_254263 posted:
Today the culture results came back from the nasal cavity as positive for two things:

streptococcus viridans
staphylococcus epidermidis

Several questions here:

1. What would cause a person to have both infections at the same time?
2. Will medicine kill both when avalox is prescribed?
3. Is this contagious to others within my family?
