How can I cure my hypersensitivity to mosquito bites?

When I get bit, the bite area usually swells up to be the size of a golf ball to the size of a grapefruit. My latest on is on my knee and swelled up so much I couldn't walk. I have been placed on antibiotics and in the past prednisone.

I don't like to be on medication if I can avoid it, are there any suggestions to how I can curb my hypersensitivity to mosquito bites?

There are a few things you can do.The first thing is begin taking Vitamin C 1,000 mil 2x a day.Then make sure you are getting good fats such as those found in flax oil.Avoid getting bitten by wearing light colored clothing,neem oil and natural bug repellents will also help from the health food store.Consume turmeric,its an natural anti-inflammatory.  (+ info)

Is it cent percent sure that after circumcision the hypersensitivity of my glans will go for ever?

I am suffering from phimosis. Circumcision is the only way. But if my hypersensitivity of glans will not go, I cant wear any dress.

Please answer to the question only.It is urgent. Don't advise me to avoid circumcision.

After circumcision, some guys, especially those who had it done because of phimosis and therefore never really had the head exposed before, will find the glans become extremely sensitive to touch,
However, overtime it will become used to it, from rubbing against things like clothing, and you will no longer feel so sensitive. Just one of those things you might have to put up with while it heals, if you have circumcision.  (+ info)

Respiratory therapists, do you always have to work the night shift when starting out?

I'm interested in respiratory therapy, but I've been told that you must start out on the graveyard shift when you begin. I'm not sure I want to do this as I hate working overnight.

Should this be expected if I enter the field?

Unfortunately, most respiratory therapists do have to work the less desirable night and weekend shifts when they first start out, until they gain seniority. That being said, it is really a crap shoot as far as how long it could take for you to move to day shift. I've known some therapists who got a day position pretty easily, and others who had to work night shifts for more than 5 years before a day shift opened up.

You could always specialize in PFT's, since they are generally only done during clinic hours.  (+ info)

How does the respiratory system connect to other bodily systems?

I'm doing a science project, and talking about how Pulmonologoy and the respiratory system relates to other bodily system. I've already found info on the Digestive and and Cardiology system, but I'm at a loss for how it relates to the Endocrine, Excretory and Nervous systems. If you know any or all, please answer! Thanks so much!

nervous system: there are nerves that enervate the diaphragm (and thoracic muscles), which are critical to muscular manipulation of the lung volume.

Endocrine: see renin-angiotensin system.

Excretory: perhaps the surfactant excretions that decrease surface energies, so that the lung doesn't collapse onto itself.  (+ info)

How does the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems work together?

This is for a science project due tomorrow, I have the main part done but I'm having trouble answering these questions:

How do the digestive and respiratory systems work together?

How do the digestive and circulatory systems work together?

How do the respiratory and circulatory systems work together?

Digestive and respiratory work together because the lungs and will supply the blood with o2 and that will travel threw the circulatory system via arteries, veins, and capillaries. the o2 can then be absorbed in the muscles used in the digestive system to break up food and use it for energy.the circulatory and repertory work together to supply the body with o2 and to remove co2. the lungs will take in o2 and will go into small tubes called bronchioles. these will then connect into aveoli then to capillaries. the capillaries then transfer the 02 into the heart to pumped throughout the body. hope this helps good luck  (+ info)

How much does a respiratory therapist with an associates degree make?

I should be starting the Respiratory Therapist 2 yr program next fall and was wondering how much I would start out making in the Raleigh/Durham area. Any info on the subject would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

An R.T. friend of mine said to expect anywhere between $14-$18 an hour. In some cities it is more.  (+ info)

What happens in your respiratory system when you inhale dust?

Say a big cloud of dust flies in your face while cleaning out a closet… you will probably cough and sneeze.
In addition to these violent exhalations, what are the parts of the respiratory system that are working to keep dust out of your lungs? And what are they doing?

That's what the upper respiratory system is all about.If you breathe the dust in through your nose, dust particles get trapped in the mucous membrane right away but what gets by is caught up in the nasal passages with the turbinates. In the nasal cavity air swirls around a bit and that increases the amount of dust that gets trapped when it hits the walls. Now you're down to the pharynx where you've got the epiglottis and a number of other structures there that are lined with moist membranes.All of these trap the dust also. What gets by the larynx and into the trachea has a real problem because the mucous membranes there are much more responsive to inhaled foreign bodies. Mucous is produced by the glands that line the airways. This traps whatever remains of the dust. Now there are structures in your airways that look like little hairs but they are anything but. They are called cillia and their responsibility is a wave like motion to move the excess mucous escalator fashion back up towards the trachea. Once enough mucous gets into the trachea it stimulates a cough, if you haven't already and expels the dust out.  (+ info)

What everyday system is similar to how your respiratory system works?

I need help thinking of ways the respiratory works. So if someone can think of a system that works like your respiratory system does, that would be great :)
If you dont understand my question, think of this; muscles work the same way a rubber band does.

How are microorganisms prevented from causing infections in lower respiratory system?

Describe how microorganisms are prevented from entering the upper respiratory system.
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)
