How are they prevented from causing infections in the lower respiratory system?
Hair like cilia cells beat in rhythem within your respiratory tract thus expelling them. Also there are globlet cells that secret mucus that traps micro organisms and the hair cell sweep them upwards. Eventually you will end up spitting it out or it can be swallowed and eliminated via your digestive tract (+ info
How many ear infections before tubes are put in?
My 10 month old has had 4 ear infections within the last 6 weeks or so and has yet another one. I was just wondering how many ear infections usually before tubes are put in and how painful is it for a baby to have the procedure done?
My little man is 8.5 months old and we're getting them put in. He has had ear infections back and forth now since November. He has been on antiobiotics 4 different times and his pedi said that they typically think about tubes if they see 5-6 within a year. Last time (which was last week) she said that he has too many so we're going ahead. She explained the procedure to me and said the only reason they do the anesthesia is because a little one moves so much, where as if it were a regular adult they could just slide them in. She also said they don't go deep with the anesthesia and keep it light. We have been asking around to people who have had their children put them in have said nothing but great things about them. Good luck!! (+ info
How do you get rid of skin infections?
My husband gets skin infections. Terrible skin infections. He gets them in his underarms. But worse where his belt lays and the insides of his thighs. The ones under his belt are worst they weep all the time. They have puss pockets the size of nickles. He has been to the doctor and put on medication but it didnt work. And the doctor refuses to send him to a dermatologist. (Medicaid) But he wont take a sample to test them either. The puss is green and yellow and bloody and nasty. The only way he can walk sometimes is if I pop them.
I know if you mash them you can make the infection go deeper. So I put on gloves and clean the area with alchole and iodine. Then take a new autoclaved peircing needle and make a hole in it. And drain it. But that doesnt get the infection gone, just removes pressure. What can we do to heal this up and make them all better.
He needs to go to www.notaquitter.com and get some Silver Cream which is a 100% Natural antibacterial agent. It is inexpensive and they ship worlwide. I use it for the same purpose and it works great. (+ info
What can be some possible causes for reoccurring bacterial infections?
I have had reoccurring bacterial infections for years now. Just recently my monthly period went away, and my vaginal area was hurting/irritatable. Now I have this discharge, with a slight order and I know that is a sign of some type of bacterial/yeast infection. It seems to come back like 3-4 months after I get the anitbotics.
Does anyone have the answer?
You have an imbalance somewhere. After the antibiotics are over, you need to take probiotics (acidophilus). Health food stores have them. This puts back the friendly bacteria in your body. Cut out the sugary food in your diet, it can spur the growth of yeast infections, they love sugar. You might want to drink natural cranberry juice as well. Good luck. (+ info

What are some home remedies for ear infections?
I've had ear infections on and off for a little while and I don't like to take antibiotics because of the severe side effects. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
Do some research on colloidal silver, it was used for infections in the early 19th century with great success but than penicillin came about and it was all but forgotten. Now that the modern antibiotics are getting ineffective colloid silver is making a come back.
Hundreds of studies conducted over the past 90 years at top medical universities in both Europe and America have confirmed the phenomenal infection fighting powers of colloidal silver, an all natural antibiotic substance. Colloidal silver ions kill many of the deadly infectious microorganisms that no longer respond to prescription antibiotic drugs. In fact colloidal silver has been demonstrated to kill over 650 different disease-causing pathogens.
You can buy colloidal silver at health food stores or make it yourself. (+ info

Your doctor should have told you that your diet has alot to due with it. Sugar is BAD! You need good things in your system when your hormones are getting your body out of whack.

We suffer for the rights of all human beings!!!!!!!! We give life. (+ info
What could be the cause of reoccurring bladder infections?
My doctor can't figure out what causes it. I take some antibiotics and it goes away for about a month. The infections happen about every other week and don't last for mare than a day or two. If they last for more than a day I start to feel sick and sleepy. I try to keep very clean, especially since this has started happening.
This started about a year ago.
soap products, over cleaning, bubble bath products, too much coffee, your partner not washing before sex, bruising of the bladder during sex or foreplay, not urinating after sex...lots of reasons..have a look at online resourses for more information and try drinking cranberry juice...fresh not concentrated. parsley tea is also helpful (+ info
How long do staph infections usually last?
My dad has had a staph infection for about a week and a half now. He went to the doctor at least five times just this week. They had to some medicine in there. It started out as a boil on his stomach, then it got worse and turned into staph. How long do staph infections usually last?
It depends on the person and the medication being used. It is important to have the dressing changed frequently (as soon as it geets infected). It is also important to eat very well with a lot of protein to promote healing. It is also important to eat plenty foods rich in iron such as leafy green veggies and organ meats. This promotes a greater production of blood which causes more blood to reach the site and fight infection. It is also important to take the prescribed medication as perscribed. It is also important to allow the site to rest and to prevent any additional trauma. Staph can get worse if the person infected doesn;t do the steps above which promote healing and eradicate the bacteria. Staph infections can cause death and can last for the rest of someones life depending on the species of staph. (+ info
How can I stop infections due to bodybuilding?
I've recently started heavy weight training sessions in the gym but keep getting infections like flu and chest infections.
My weight training sessions are intense and I also do intense interval cardio on alternate days. My goal is weight gain and big muscles.
What can I take to help keep my immune system strong?
Perhaps you are over-training or not eating well--however, it sounds like more than just that.
I am a former bike racer and lived and worked at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs while I was a journalist. I knew many Olympic athletes at that time.
None of them nor any of the hundreds of competitive cyclists I've known in my life had trouble with infections from training. I suggest you see your doctor. Something doesn't sound right. (+ info
