What Is Alcaligenes Faecalis?

Alcaligenes faecalis is a gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that was first discovered in feces, and later found to be common in soil, water, and other environments.

It is also an opportunistic pathogen that can trigger local infections, including appendicitis, peritonitis, meningitis, otitis media, and bloodstream infection.

However, the good news is it typically triggers those infections in immunosuppressed people — meaning its chances of affecting healthy people are significantly lower.

But that does not mean that healthy people are completely safe from it.

In the last year, there have been quite a few cases of healthy people suffering from infections due to this infectious bacteria in the United States.

Although those cases are rare, they are damaging.If you want to keep yourself safe from this infectious bacteria, follow the sage advice of Dutch philosopher, Desiderius Erasmus: prevention is always better than cure.

So instead of finding a cure to alcaligenes faecalis after it has infected your body, take precautionary measures to protect yourself and others right now.

Protect Yourself and Others

Although alcaligenes faecalis is not as deadly as covid-19, that does not mean it’s not a serious threat.

On top of causing infections, the bacterium is becoming more resistant to antibiotics like cephalosporins, aminoglycosides, aztreonam, and cotrimoxazol.

So we may soon not be able to treat it with antibiotics as we can now. That is why taking preventative measures to protect yourself and others from this infectious bacteria is a necessity.
