Staphylococcus aureus in the nose is an infectious disease of the nasal cavity that can appear in both an adult and a child. The disease develops under the influence of the most common microbe in the world - staphylococcus.
Staphylococcus aureus is quite common in the nose and throat. In this case, treatment should be comprehensive. But it is important to pay attention not to the very fact of the presence of these microorganisms, but to their concentration. It is also necessary to look at which type of staphylococcus is most active. In addition, the specified microorganism is always found in the intestine. When diagnosing, it is necessary to look at the detected amount of bacteria. If the mouth (oral cavity) is affected, diseases such as tonsillitis, gingivitis, stomatitis and others may appear. An excessive amount of bacteria in the nose leads to a stuffy nose, a persistent runny nose. Also, such a lesion can be characterized by general malaise.
You can understand that you have started developing a staphylococcal infection by a number of signs. But in most cases, people do not even suspect that they have not just a lingering runny nose, but a staphylococcus bacillus infection. Signs of the appearance of staphylococcus in the nose include:
- persistent runny nose;
- temperature increase;
- manifestations of general intoxication.
If the analysis for staphylococcus has shown that the microorganism has infected the throat, then the following symptoms may be present:
- discomfort and pain in the throat;
- swelling of the tonsils, their redness, the appearance of pustules or purulent plaque;
- temperature increase;
- swollen lymph nodes;
Staphylococcus aureus is considered one of the most dangerous. It becomes the cause of the appearance of pustules on the skin. A rash is common in children. If you do not treat such a staphylococcal infection, then other organs and systems will be damaged. Disruptions in the work of the gastrointestinal tract appear, they manifest themselves in the form of abdominal pain and flatulence. At the same time, children's organisms are the least protected. The staphylococcus bacterium spreads faster through their body, causing the development of various inflammatory processes in organs and tissues. It is customary to distinguish four degrees of staphylococcus. Moreover, each of them is characterized by a certain degree of activity and requires different treatment. A distinction should be made between staphylococci that are definitely pathogenic, which are destructive to blood cells, conditionally pathogenic, which contribute to the development of a minor inflammatory reaction. In addition, there are also saprophytes that do not cause almost any damage.
As a rule, treatment in adults is aimed at removing the staphylococcus pathogen and carrying out a complete sanitation of the nasopharynx area. Antibiotics such as Ceftriaxone, Amoxiclav, Ciprofloxacin, Oxacillin and other broad-spectrum agents are often prescribed. But it is necessary to focus on the results of analyzes, which will show which drugs the bacteria are sensitive to. Simultaneously with the use of antibacterial agents, it is necessary to drink drugs that should maintain a normal level of microflora in the gastrointestinal tract. You can use such means as Linex, Laktovit, Biolact and other similar medicines.
