We have a urology forum on Med Help I think the good Doctor Sharma there may be able to help you .I found this information may be of use...When infection is localized and external, treatment with 1% acetic acid irrigations or topical agents such as polymyxin B or colistin is effective. Necrotic tissue must be debrided and abscesses must be drained.

When parenteral therapy is required, 5 mg/kg/day in divided doses of the aminoglycoside antibiotic tobramycin or gentamicin inhibits most Pseudomonas.

Other antibiotics used include amikacin, tobramycin and gentamicin. Several penicillins, including carbenicillin, ticarcillin, piperacillin, mezlocillin, and azlocillin, are active against Pseudomonas.

Specific choice of antibiotic must be based upon the history of pseudomonas sensitivity to the particular drug in the community and, if the organism is cultured, its specific sensitivity.


What Questions To Ask Your Doctor About Pseudomonas Infections

What is the probable cause of infection?

Why is this a threat?

Where is the site of the infection?

What are treatment options?

Which antibiotics will you use and what are the side effects?

Will this cure the infection?
