Cifilis men: what different manifestations of the disease

February 4, 2014

 syphilis men
 Syphilis sick of both sexes, the causative agent of the disease equally affects male and female organisms. Syphilis develops in men after contact with a sick person healthy. Facilitates the penetration of the pathogen any injury or abrasion on the skin and mucous membranes. Microcracks or subtle abrasions occur during sexual contact, so this route of transmission is considered to be the main one.


At some point, you can recognize the disease

Once inside the body, the spirochete not immediately causes the development of clinical disease. Symptoms of syphilis in men only appear in a few weeks, which is considered to be a period of incubation. At this stage of the disease a person feels good, his condition is unchanged. Even on closer inspection it is impossible to detect the presence of the disease, since the surface of the skin and mucous membranes remains normal. Only after the completion of the incubation period can be clearly detected the pathological focus on the place of introduction of the pathogen. The first sign of the disease is the presence of the chancre.

Solid chancre has the following clinical manifestations:

  • small size
  • round or oval
  • sharply defined boundaries Education
  • absence of pain
  • Erosion has a rich red color of meat

   men on the first stage of the disease is determined not only by the condition of the body, as well as the influence of environmental factors and living conditions. View chancre is different depending on the location of the primary tumor. The manifestation of syphilis in men in some cases reminiscent of other diseases, which complicates differential diagnosis. If the primary site is localized in the oral cavity in the tonsils can be mistakenly diagnosed with an inflammatory disease or angina Angina - is it worth it to carry "on their feet"?  Angina - is it worth it to carry "on their feet"?


At some stage, the relapse

After completion of the initial period, which lasts an average of one and a half months, beginning the second period. The patient appeared diverse cutaneous manifestations. Lesions are found on the skin, mucous membranes, which is a clinical confirmation of the presence of the pathogen in the blood. For the second period is characterized by loss of almost all organs and systems due to disease progression.

Syphilis is a fresh start of the secondary period can be characterized by undulating course. Clinical manifestations in the future disappear, even without a specific treatment.

Treatment of syphilis in men should be carried out without fail, because after a short period of time comes the return of the disease.

This happens not only in the case where the treatment is not performed, and when the treatment regimen was chosen irrationally or the patient did not fulfill all the necessary recommendations. Return of symptoms is clinical evidence of recurrent secondary syphilis. Relapse is replaced by periods of latent syphilis Latent syphilis - risk of delayed treatment assignment  Latent syphilis - risk of delayed treatment assignment
 , With each new recurrence of symptoms become less severe.

Skin elements vary during a relapse, they increase in size and arranged in groups. Each group forms on the skin of some geometric shapes with clear boundaries. The most common arcs, ellipses or garlands that are sufficiently distinctive appearance and help in the diagnosis. Prevent the development of secondary recurrent syphilis can be initiated in a timely manner and at a neat treatment.


Basic principles during treatment for syphilis

The first treatment should not be local, so as local therapy is only of secondary importance. The general course of complex therapy implies that the patient be carefully and thoroughly examined. A survey carried out both before and after completion of treatment to be able to evaluate the effectiveness of the dynamics. This applies particularly to the control of serological tests for blood analysis. Since the beginning of therapy should not be delayed, however, as soon as the diagnosis of syphilis is confirmed, the patient should be under medical supervision and receive appropriate therapy.

Great importance is attached not only to timely initiation of therapy, as well as its intensity. In this regard, it is important to carry out activities that will contribute to the strengthening of the immune system. It is recommended to make sure that the food was full, fortified, exercise Myths about exercise: do not believe  Myths about exercise: do not believe
   (taking into account the general state of the body), to conduct a correct way of life, not to drink alcohol or smoke. These factors contribute greatly to the success of the treatment. If it is necessary from the point of view of medical indications, it is possible to assign means of non-specific stimulation of the body's defenses. Treat the patient must be in a way that was not the oppression of the immune system.

Some experts used in the practice of the specific allocation scheme antisifiliticheskih preparations in the form of intermittent treatment. This group of drugs is not indifferent to human health, so it is recommended to take a break after the main course. Make sure that the breaks were not prolonged, so that they do not exceed a few weeks. Otherwise, it may be a situation where prolonged treatment leads to the appearance of resistant forms of the causative agent of syphilis, which relates to the embodiment of complications of the disease.

Syphilis is highly contagious (or infectious) disease, so treatment should be not only the patient but also the people who are with him in close household, sexual contact. There is a concept of preventive treatment when therapy is appointed in the period of incubation of the disease, which is an effective preventive measure.

Allergic vaginitis - not a rare phenomenon

April 4, 2013

 allergic vaginitis
 Allergic vaginitis - is inflammation of the vagina that occurs upon contact of the external genitalia with some substance that causes an allergic reaction (allergen). Often allergic vaginitis complicated by the addition of an infection.

 Allergic vaginitis - not a rare phenomenon

How to start an allergic vaginitis

Allergic vaginitis usually starts after re-exposure of the external genitalia with a particular substance that causes an allergic reaction. At the same time inflammation develops infectious nature.

The first contact with the substance that causes the allergy usually causes no symptoms of allergy. The allergen enters the body, in response to that produced by specific proteins (antibodies) to a given allergen (antigen). Repeated contact with the allergen to the mucous membrane of genitals develop an allergic reaction, accompanied by redness and swelling of tissues, itching, burning, discharge appearance and so on.

Allergic vaginitis often develops in contact with a variety of cosmetics (deodorants), personal hygiene products (soap, gel, pads), topical contraceptives (eg farmateks), as well as drugs for the local (vaginal) application - vaginal suppositories Vaginal suppositories - for contraception and treatment of inflammation  Vaginal suppositories - for contraception and treatment of inflammation
 , Creams, gels, and so forth.

A feature of allergic vaginitis is that they are often joined by the infectious process - inflammation of the lining of the vagina and external genitalia is a gateway to penetrate the bacterial, fungal, viral infection. But more often allergic vaginitis complicated vaginal candidiasis - a fungal infection Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat  Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat
 Caused by the yeast genus Candida.

In some cases, allergic vaginitis may develop against other allergic diseases (allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma, atopic dermatitis) in response to the entry into the body of food or drug allergy (when taking oral medication or if it is administered by injection).

Allergic vaginitis woman can deliver a lot of discomfort, insomnia and until pronounced disorder of the nervous system. When worries constant itching in the genital area it is impossible to work or do household chores.

Often the allergic process is supported by the addition of vaginal candidiasis as fungi of the genus Candida have strong allergenic properties. In this case, on the surface of the inflamed mucosa appear small cheesy raids initially easy to remove, and then grow and turn into a film, tightly knit with the mucosa. Beli also can acquire the character of curd.

What to do if you start an allergic vaginitis?

First of all, the need to completely avoid contact with substances that could cause allergies. If after that the inflammatory process is not reduced, itching, burning and discharge persist, consult a doctor and undergo a complete examination: it is possible that the process of joining to allergic infection.

An experienced doctor after inspection and colposcopy (a special study designed to detail the vaginal mucosa) may be suspected of infection. But it must be confirmed by laboratory tests. Smears from the vagina and urethra - by means of this study can detect inflammation, allergies, dysbiosis.

Seeding precipitates on nutrient medium reveals the presence of an infection and its sensitivity to various drugs. If necessary, the infectious process is confirmed by PCR analysis (identifies pathogen DNA) and immunological studies (detected antibodies to a particular infectious agent).

If the survey did not reveal infection, woman after complete removal of the allergen appointed antihistamines suppressing allergic reactions, and relieves itching. After the treatment and recovery of a woman should always avoid the use of substances from her allergies.
