Streptococcus pyogenes


Streptococcus pyogenes in Latin is group A streptococcus.

Not only streptococcus pyogenes, but also other streptococci are insidious bacteria belonging to the genus coccus, to the group of lactic acid bacteria. When viewed under a microscope, a streptococcus bacteria looks like a bunch of berries. Individual cells can be shaped like balls or eggs. In addition to angina, streptococcal bacteria can be the cause of many other diseases, such as rheumatic fever, streptococcal pneumonia, scarlet fever, otitis media, pneumonia, nephritis and others.

Streptococci are most often found in the mouth, larynx, skin, upper respiratory tract and, in women, also in the vagina and uterus, which of course can be dangerous not only for the carrier, but also for the fetus or newborn.

The source of infection can be not only sick people, but also bacillus carriers, who are not sick themselves, but nevertheless transmit streptococci.

Streptococci are usually treated with antibiotics to which they are sensitive, but unfortunately even streptococci are no exception in terms of the ever-increasing resistance of bacteria to antibiotics (see WHO report). For this reason as well, it is increasingly important to strengthen our own immunity so that it is able to protect us from streptococci and other bacteria.

If we are troubled by frequent streptococcal infections in the throat, then it is possible to choose Streptokill, which has excellent references from patients in this regard, to restore the normal function of the upper respiratory tract.
