Causes Folliculitis is caused by introduction of a skin pathogen to a hair follicle causing damage due to invasion mainly by Staphylococcus species. Pseudomonas species are also known to be associated with skin infections. Folliculitis can be caused by bacteria, virus, fungus
When men suffer from a UTI it is typically acquired from sexual contact. Some sexually transmitted diseases, like herpes or chlamydia, also are possible causes. Frequency This urinary problem can be a characteristic sign of a urinary tract infection. Because irritation and swelling reduces the bladder's ability to hold urine, even small amounts of urine cause discomfort.
The urine and prostatic secretions contain large quantities of microorganisms, pus, and leukocytes. The infection is caused by gram-negative bacteria that usually produce urinary tract infections (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Proteus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus faecalis.) The bacteria reach the urinary tract through the bloodstream and lymph system, or may be sexually transmitted (Neisseria
A fistula is an opening on the large intestine and another surface that stick together and form a tunnel. If they are healed while connected, it can cause the spread of bacteria from the large intestine and cause inflammation and infection. The last, but yet of many more complications is dysuria or painful urination. Diverticulitis can cause a part of the bowels that are inflamed to have contact with the bladder causing the pain and having to urinate more often. It can also cause air to be present in urine which is the result of a fistula.
1) Explain: a) What is the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Herpes Simplex Virus? Type 1 Herpes Simplex virus infects oral mucous membrane. It may causes fever blisters, most adults have antibodies to virus. Most individuals are infected in childhood.
Diarrhoea is usually a symptom of an underlying condition. It can be caused by a number of factors such as : Gastroenteritis - this is typically acquired from food or water that has been contaminated by faeces or directly from another infected person. This causes infectious diarrhoea and the infectious agents can be bacteria, viruses or parasites. Common causative bacterial agents are Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae, Shigella dysenteriae and Clostridium difficile.
People whose hands are frequently exposed to water, such as healthcare workers, often experience irritant contact dermatitis of the hands. About 80% of contact dermatitis are irritant one. The skin can be damaged in several ways i.e. detergents, soaps, bleach which can remove the protective oily layer and so leave the skin unprotected. Physical damage appears when the skin is cut or teared. This can break the protective layer and allow substances

When virions spread to adjacent sensory neurons, a lifelong infection is established (Owen, Crump, & Graham, 2015). Both primary and secondary diseases have a significant morbidity and mortality but thanks to advances in diagnostic and the production of vaccines, it is possible to decrease their burden (Gershon, 2013). 1.1 Varicella: Varicella (chickenpox), the primary infection of VZV, is characterized by cutaneous eruption typically seen in children. In adults, this primary infection is more severe and in immunocompromised patients, it can be followed by complications such as, high fever, pneumonia, encephalitis and hepatitis (Gershon et al., 2013). During this primary infection, the virus can be
Food or bacteria in the intestines, or even the lining of the bowel may cause the uncontrolled inflammation associated with Crohn 's disease. Signs and Symptoms: The symptoms of Crohn 's disease depend on where the disease occurs in the bowel and its severity. These are some symptom examples Chronic diarrhea, often bloody and containing mucus or pus Weight loss Fever Abdominal pain and tenderness Feeling of a mass or fullness in the abdomen Rectal bleeding
Children under the age of two and older adults who have weak immune systems are at the most risk. Pneumococcal meningitis is harmful and can cause severe brain damage or ca even cause someone to go deaf. Meningococcal meningitis is the second most common form of meningitis and it is caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitides. People at risk for this disease include infants under the age of one, people who travel to foreign countries, freshmen in college who live in the dorms and people with suppressed immune systems. Between 10 and 15 percent of the cases are fatal and 10 to 15 percent up end with brain
Indirect infection transmission is caused when there is no physical contact between humans. Indirect infection is generally spread when someone sneezes or coughs, causing the disease to become airborne. Another way indirect transmission can occur is when a surface becomes contaminated such as a change table or a toy. This is why it's important to ensure your centre is effective in environmental cleaning. The third way an indirect infection can occur is through contact with animals such as mosquitos, rats, mice, dogs, fleas, ticks etc.
Hip Joint Effusion, Pediatric Hip joint effusion is a buildup of fluid in the hip joint. The hip joint is where the upper leg bone (femur) attaches to the hip bone (pelvic bone). The hip joint is a closed space. The lining of the hip joint (synovium) makes a lubricating fluid. This helps the top of the femur move easily in its socket in the pelvic bone.
My sophomore year at Clark I sat at a high table in the Academic Commons on the phone with my mother discussing an article I read for class. The article was an opinion piece that called into question the Western viewpoint on Female Genital Cutting. The article was critical, intense and uncomfortable yet I sat on the phone with my mom for almost an hour discussing the author's arguments, its faults and virtues, my opinion and desire to study information like this forever. In response, she said "You can. Its called Women's Studies".
