C. difficile

What is C. difficile?

 

C. difficile (Clostridium difficile) is a type of bacteria normally found in soil and other natural environments. It can also live in our own gut or bowel with many other kinds of bacteria. Antibiotics (medicines) used to treat infections will kill many of these germs but may allow C. difficile to grow causing irritation of the bowel and diarrhea. Other types of medications may also cause your bowel to be susceptible to this infection. This can happen with medications you have taken at home or while you were in the hospital.
