The causative agent of the Bubonic Plague is a gram-negative coccobacilli shaped bacteria, Yersinia pestis. Yersinia pestis belongs to the family of enterobacteria and is a facultative anaerobe.

Lupus Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body.

How to Get Rid of Acne and Pimples The basic mechanics behind acne are as follows: Oil glands that produce sebum on your face can get clogged by things such as dirt, dry skin flakes, or the oil itself. Once the pore is clogged, it creates an area that is like an infection where this pebble-like blockage is considered a foreign entity. The situation is made worse by bacteria that thrive within the blockage and cause further irritation of the skin. Bacteria live on your face naturally, and in fact they cover our entire bodies, but within the conditions of a pimple they cause a rush of white blood cells to come to the area to fight off the As white blood cells do their work, they turn into pus that can fill the pore as well. The resulting redness and swelling is what we see on the surface as pimples.
