Sports Medicine Specialist Dr. Abhay Dikshit's  Response
Hi, Unfortunately you are victim of C. Difficile. First of all let me clear out that this infection of gut is the result of some higher antibiotic ingestion which has destroyed your normal gut flora. It is true that taking any antibiotic further may lead to more disastrous complications like pseudomembraneous colitis and toxic megacolon.
For your sinus infection you may try steam inhalation,paracetamol and local analgesic etc.
To eradicate C. Diffi. you can Take Vancomycin & Metronidazole.
Even metraonidazole will help you in your sinus infection. All the treatment you should take under the strict medical supervision so as to avoid the toxic effects.

Hi
First you try for local measures like steam inhalation,local application of analgesic cream etc.
For headache etc you can take paracetamol or some atispasmodic tablet.
Even after this there is no relief and infection is there you may take antibiotic like amoxicillin,ofloxacillin after consulting your physician.

our 23 year old son has chronic stomach pain, and also has chronic sinus infections. Had abdominal surgery for lower bowel intususseption, which had been seen on a CT scan . Dr. said intestines, etc. looked great and healthy, no intususseption was found. Took out a scarred appendix and some fatty tissue , all benign. Two months after surgery he has the same pain. We are stumped. Is there any connection between chronic stomach pain and sinus infections?

My Mother has C-Diff and can no longer take most antibotic so the question is how do we treat small infections like a sinus infection or a kidney infection. I know the one antibotic she can take is Flagaral but if she takes it to much will it help her when the c-diff acts up again. Also how contagious is it when she isnt sick with it.
