How can one get a proteus infection?
Hello, proteus can cause gastroenteritis, Urinary tract infections, and wound infections. Excessive bacterial colonization can lead to urinary tract infections and, as a late consequence, kidney stones. Infections such as peritonitis, infections of the bile ducts, or of the gastrointestinal tract. Severe cases can also lead to sepsis. Can anyone tell me how can one get proteus?
@ramiro Hello, The bacterium spreads mainly through contact with infected persons or contaminated objects and surfaces. The pathogens can also be ingested via the intestinal tract, for example, when it is present in contaminated food. The germs spread quickly because they are very agile. The bacteria can enter the human urogenital system from the intestine, or following a smear infection. Proteus mirabilis can also enter the bloodstream through wounds. This happens with contact between the wound and an infected surface.
