Karvezide Staphylococcal Infection Causes and Reviews


What are Staphylococcal (staph) infections?

Staphylococcus (staph) is a group of bacteria. There are more than 30 types. A type called Staphylococcus aureus causes most infections.

Staph bacteria can cause many different types of infections, including

  • Skin infections, which are the most common types of staph infections
  • Bacteremia, an infection of the bloodstream. This can lead to sepsis, a very serious immune response to infection.
  • Bone infections
  • Endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of the heart chambers and valves
  • Food poisoning
  • Pneumonia
  • Toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a life-threatening condition caused by toxins from certain types of bacteria
What causes staph infections?

Some people carry staph bacteria on their skin or in their noses, but they do not get an infection. But if they get a cut or wound, the bacteria can enter the body and cause an infection.

Staph bacteria can spread from person to person. They can also spread on objects, such as towels, clothing, door handles, athletic equipment, and remotes. If you have staph and do not handle food properly when you are preparing it, you can also spread staph to others.

Who is at risk for staph infections?

Anyone can develop a staph infection, but certain people are at greater risk, including those who

  • Have a chronic condition such as diabetes, cancer, vascular disease, eczema, and lung disease
  • Have a weakened immune system, such as from HIV/AIDS, medicines to prevent organ rejection, or chemotherapy
  • Had surgery
  • Use a catheter, breathing tube, or feeding tube
  • Are on dialysis
  • Inject illegal drugs
  • Do contact sports, since you may have skin-to-skin contact with others or share equipment
What are the symptoms of staph infections?

The symptoms of a staph infection depend on the type of infection:

  • Skin infections can look like pimples or boils. They may be red, swollen, and painful. Sometimes there is pus or other drainage. They can turn into impetigo, which turns into a crust on the skin, or cellulitis, a swollen, red area of skin that feels hot.
  • Bone infections can cause pain, swelling, warmth, and redness in the infected area. You may also have chills and a fever.
  • Endocarditis causes some flu-like symptoms: fever, chills, and fatigue. It also causes symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, and fluid buildup in your arms or legs.
  • Food poisoning typically causes nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, and a fever. If you lose too many fluids, you may also become dehydrated.
  • Pneumonia symptoms include a high fever, chills, and cough that doesn't get better. You may also have chest pain and shortness of breath.
  • Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) causes high fever, sudden low blood pressure, vomiting, diarrhea, and confusion. You may have a sunburn-like rash somewhere on your body. TSS can lead to organ failure.
How are staph infections diagnosed?

Your health care provider will do a physical exam and ask about your symptoms. Often, providers can tell if you have a staph skin infection by looking at it. To check for other types of staph infections, providers may do a culture, with a skin scraping, tissue sample, stool sample, or throat or nasal swabs. There may be other tests, such as imaging tests, depending on the type of infection.

What are the treatments for staph infections?

Treatment for staph infections is antibiotics. Depending on the type of infection, you may get a cream, ointment, medicines (to swallow), or intravenous (IV). If you have an infected wound, your provider might drain it. Sometimes you may need surgery for bone infections.

Some staph infections, such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), are resistant to many antibiotics. There are still certain antibiotics that can treat these infections.

Can staph infections be prevented?

Certain steps can help to prevent staph infections:

  • Use good hygiene, including washing your hands often
  • Don't share towels, sheets, or clothing with someone who has a staph infection
  • It's best not to share athletic equipment. If you do need to share, make sure that it properly cleaned and dried before you use it.
  • Practice food safety, including not preparing food for others when you have a staph infection
  • If you have a cut or wound, keep it covered

Karvezide Staphylococcal Infection Reviews

Wed, 24 Nov 2010

Karvezide makes me go frequently to the bathroom
I was on karvea before and was no sideaffects.

Fri, 08 Jul 2011

Although Karvezide controlled my hypertension, it leaves me with dry mouth and I find it difficult to sleep well during the nights, so my doctor switched me back to Karvea. After switching for 2 days, I already notice the increase in my blood pressure, but so far I am sleeping well now.

Tue, 08 Feb 2011

i have a very itchy rash evrtywhere only since the dr increased the strength

Sat, 21 May 2011

I have developed an itchy red rash on my face over the last two years for which I have not been able to find a cause. I now think it may be from taking calcium and vitamin D combination tablets for Osteoporosis together with my Karvazide medication.

Tue, 20 Mar 2012

ive been taken kavezide 150/12.5 for 3month and i notice that ive been constipated.

Sun, 21 Aug 2011

Extreme dizziness, fatigue, and weakness of muscles - Karvezide 300/25 is perhaps too strong for me as I have no problems as yet on the lesser dose 300/12.5.

Sat, 03 Dec 2011

I had taken Karvea 300 for three years before it became ineffective and my blood pressure started to rise.My general practitioner prescribed Karvezide 300/12.5 and after a short while I recorded normal blood pressure.
I always experienced a dry mouth and at times did feel quite tired with mood swings evident.However,after two years on this medication I started to experience pain in the lower back area which was dismissed after x-rays revealed sacrilisation of L5.
I endured this pain for another year during which I also started experiencing pain in the ankles and other joints - to the point where I had difficulty walking.I knew something was wrong as I was always in good health and am in my late 50s.A cardiac specialist took me off this medication and in the first week I immediately noticed an improvement in the pain being reduced.I am looking forward to it improving further and hope I have not caused any long term problems.My reason to post this is to simply warn people not to delay in getting an alternative medication if you feel you ar experiencing something unusual.
