In women, the bacteria infect the cervix and the urethra. Women who have symptoms might have an abnormal vaginal discharge or a burning sensation while urinating. If the infection spreads from the cervix to the fallopian tubes, women may become infertile. Other women might experience lower abdominal pain, low back pain, nausea, fever, pain during intercourse, or bleeding between menstrual periods. Chlamydia infection in the cervix can spread to the rectum.
Bacterial infections can usually be treated with anti-biotics however some types of bacteria can form a protective spore which can make them more resistant to heat and chemicals. The requirements for optimum growth are is a temperature of 37c, water, food, time, oxygen/ no oxygen. Common illnesses caused by bacteria are Salmonella, tuberculosis, MRSA, bronchitis, ear infections and tonsillitis. Virus-tend to be smaller than bacteria and in order for the cells to reproduce they need to be in a living host. The common way of treating a virus is through immunization as anti-biotics will not be effective against viral infections.
Besides psoriasis, onychatrophia is also caused by lichen planus. Lichen planus is a chronic disease that affects the oral mucosa and the skin. There will be lesions, papules and rashes on the skin of people who have lichen planus. Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica is another ailment that leads to onychatrophia. People with this disorder are frequently referred to as ‘butterfly children’ due to the fragile nature of their skin.
Infectious keratitis usually begins by affecting the outer layer of the cornea, but it can go deeper into the cornea, increasing the risk of impaired vision. Non-infectious keratitis is a feature of some autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren's syndrome. Trauma to the front of the eye, as may occur with poorly fitting contact lenses, surgery on the cornea (including LASIK surgery), or any other injury to the cornea may lead to keratitis. People who wear contact lenses are at increased risk for infectious keratitis. Lens wear should stop immediately if a person suspects that he or she is developing an eye infection.
Smoking can also damage your baby's lungs. Women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to have: •An ectopic pregnancy •Vaginal bleeding •Placental abruption (placenta peels away, partially or almost completely, from the uterine wall before delivery) •Placenta previa (a low-lying placenta that covers part or all of the opening of the uterus) •A stillbirth Babies born to women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to be born: •With birth defects such as cleft lip or palate •Prematurely •At low birthweight •Underweight for the number of weeks of pregnancy Babies born prematurely and at low birthweight are at risk of other serious health problems, including lifelong disabilities (such as cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities and learning problems), and in some cases, death. Secondhand smoke Breathing in someone else's smoke is also harmful. Secondhand smoke during pregnancy can cause a baby to be born at low birthweight. Secondhand smoke is also dangerous to young children.
(3) Etiology: Pneumonia develops when the immune system cannot combat the virulence of the invading organisms. Organisms from the environment, invasive devices, equipment and supplies, staff, or other people can invade the body. Pneumonia can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa. Noninfectious causes of pneumonia include inhalation of toxic gases, chemical fumes, and smoke and aspiration of water, food, fluid, and vomitus. (4) Signs & Symptoms: Pneumonia may present with a 1-2 day history of cough, fever, dyspnea, fatigue, rigors and pleuritic pain.
Moreover, ¾ of American consumers use antibacterial soap. (Cleaning Institute, 2011) Therefore, it is important to bring awareness to the society and prevent its harmful outcomes to human beings. Bob Dunn’s “Scientists Discover That Antimicrobial Wipes and Soaps May Be Making You (and Society) Sick” argued that the antimicrobial soaps and wipes could make people sick when compared with normal soaps, which is healthier to use. This is because normal soap would not cause resistant bacteria in our body. The idea was based on an experiment led by Dr.Allison.
The way that the infectious pathogens are becoming stronger is just like the scenario that Darwin refers too with the beetles. A person will get a shot to prevent getting a virus or disease. The way that shot works is that it builds a “wall” to prevent the pathogens from getting to you cells and causing them to be infected. One of the most common mechanisms of antibiotic resistance is caused by chromosomal mutation (Maclean, Hall, Perron, & Buckling, 2010). Chromosomal mutation modifies the enzymes that it targets and forms a bond that tricks the enzyme to believe that it a good enzyme.
MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS: Pneumonia: Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. The infection may be caused by fungi, bacteria, or viruses. Pneumonia causes inflammation in your lungs air sacs, also referred to as alveoli. The alveoli fill with fluid or pus, making it difficult to breathe. The invading organism causes symptoms, in part, by provoking a large immune response in the lungs.
Headaches. These are symptoms of a disease that is spreading in the genital area among adolescents and adults (Becker). It is herpes. Herpes affects the body by producing fever, blisters, flu-like symptoms, sores, and blisters around the genital area. Genital Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2) (Kluwer).
