What is the biological vector of typhus?

What is the biological vector of typhus, I am doing a project on Anne Frank and I need to know. Also what is the origin of the actual disease typhus?

There are a number of diseases that fall under the heading of typhus. The main ones are epidemic typhus, Brill-Zinsser disease, endemic or murine typhus and scrub typhus. Anne probably died of endemic typhus at Bergen-Belsen. The biologic vector is the body louse (plural is lice) and also fleas.  (+ info)

How can doctors tell if a patient has typhus ?

I've been reading about typhus and was just curious as to what doctors look for if they are concerned that the patient has typhus?

Symptoms include severe headache, a sustained high fever, cough, rash, severe muscle pain, chills, falling blood pressure, stupor, sensitivity to light, and delirium. A rash begins on the chest about five days after the fever appears, and spreads to the trunk and extremities but does not reach the face, palms and soles. A symptom common to all forms of typhus is a fever which may reach 39°C (102°F).  (+ info)

What are the chances of developing Typhus from a flea bite?

I just fed my cat and as I was going inside I felt a sting on my toe. Shockingly, I discovered it was a flea that bit me. Now, my mom got Typhus from a flea bite once, and thankfully recovered. I'm scared now, and am wondering whats the chance of me getting Typhus from the flea bite?

It's not likely you would get a flea disease from one flea bite.
Even if the flea was infected with Typhus or Bartonella (or Bartonella like organism) your immune system would very likely take care of it unless for some reason your immune system was very taxed at the time and even then it's not highly likely from one flea bite.  (+ info)

What is the origin of the disease typhus?

I am doing a project on Anne Frank and I need to find the origin of the disease typhus, what efforts were made to find the cure, and how many people died from the disease.

Whats the difference between Facial Scrub and Facial Cleansers?

I am planning to buy the Clean and Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub to replace my old facial cleanser. But is it possible that I can replace it or is facial scrub something completely different?
To those who are telling me to use it once a week or so: I have read many reviews of this product and a lot of them say you need to use it daily to get the effects. So thats how I came up with the idea of replacing it with my facial cleanser

A facial scrub has little "bits" in it that make it rougher so it exfoliates more. Each scrub is different in the size of it's bits which can make it softer on the face or rougher (the old school st ives apricot scrub was insane, but it worked sooo good). Anyway, if your face isn't really sensitive it shouldn't be a problem to switch, but I would check the consistency of the clean and clear before buying it to make sure it won't be too rough on your face. Or if it is too rough for every day use you can use it once a week to exfoliate...  (+ info)

What is the best face scrub to buy at a drugstore?

I'm just trying to get rid of white heads on my nose.
What's the best face scrub I can buy at walmart or walgreens or somewhere like that?
I've used Biore Pore Strips and those don't work for me.
& I've used Clean and Clear oxyginating scrub or something like that which didn't do much either.

try st. ive's apricot scrub. good luck  (+ info)

What is the difference between a facial cleanser and a facial scrub?

I heard that you are supposed to use the scrub twice a week, so when you use it, do you use cleanse, then scrub, or just scrub?

A cleanser is used to get off all the oil and dirt that gets in your skin and eventually finds its way into your pours. A scrub will normally have tiny beads that help open the clogged pores and help remove any dirt that the cleanser did not already get off.

when you get out of the shower and your skin is still moist, use an OIL FREE cleaner followed by a scrub, if needed.

if you use a scrub more than 2 times a weak, your skin will get too dry, so watch out!  (+ info)

What kind of acne/facial scrub and facial moisturizer is best during pregnancy?

Like many women, i have been breaking out really bad since I got pregnant, and the cold weather and wind doesn't help very much either. What facial scrub and moisturizer do you use that is safe to use during pregnancy? I've heard that Aveeno is really good, I would just like to get some advice before I spend the money on something, since that stuff is expensive. Thanks a bunch!

I was just reading something online at parents.com about how certain facial cleansers and moisturizers are harmful during pregnancy cause they soak into skin and get in blood streams, you need to ask your doc, he may even be able to prescribe you something. With my first my doc told me to wash with a non soap cleanser. Even if its not for your face.  (+ info)

How long can you keep a home made foot scrub in a container before it expires?

I am make a foot scrub today for someone and I am using brown sugar. Since ppl have all kinds of skin types I want to make sure that this product I am making is going to be safe for a long time to come. Was is the timeline for a home made foot scrub before it goes bad?

honestly i would say as long as they don't use it on their feet and then eat it, it shouldn't be dangerous. Let them use it until its gone. Most products that are homemade will last forever.

P.S. i think its really cool that you made it. What is your recipe?  (+ info)
