What are some oral manifestations of Kaposi's Sarcoma and where can I get photos of this disease?

I am doing a research paper on this subject and have not been able to find some oral manifestations or photos thus far. Any ideas?

involvement of the oral cavity is seen after that of the extremities and face. the oral lesions are same as cutaneous nodules i.e. they appear as reddish or brownish red nodules which may vary in size from a few mm to a cm or more in diameter. cervical lymph node and salivary gland involvement commonly precedes cutaneous and visceral involvement in African children.

u may refer to textbook of Oral Pathology(Shafer), PubMed, http://www.hivdent.org/slides/ (for pictures)..  (+ info)

Are oral canker sores and cold sores different manifestations of the same herpes virus?

Yes and no.

Cold sores are HSV-1, canker sores can be HSV-1 or they can be bacteria after an injury for instance.

HSV-2 is the kind people call genetal herpes. They are a different *strain* of the herpes virus.

They are both still a retrovirus and work in a very similar fashion.

Either one can be spread to other people and both have other complications beyond what most people know about, such as spreading to other parts of the body.

Wikipedia has a good article on it but it is quite long but not overly technical.  (+ info)

How does oral medication for acne know how to clear up the area?

I have a minor acne problem on my chin and the corner of mouth. I recently went to the dermatologist to find out how to get rid of it. She prescribed oral medication that treats acne. My question is how does the oral medicine know where the acne is and how does it clear it up? I guess I'm just really skeptical about this whole thing. Thanks!

The medicines are antibiotics. They get rid of all the bad bacteria in your body. This will also get rid of acne because acne is caused by bacteria.  (+ info)

What is oral motor planning and how does it affect toddlers speech?

My two year old only has a hand full of words and someone mentioned he could have oral motor planning issues. I'm still waiting to hear back from EI for an evaluation.
Yes, he understands everything and knows exactly what he wants.

My now three year old daughter was saying very few words at two and she was referred to our local Elks program, California-Hawaii Elks Project. They will come to your house and work with your child and evaluate them to see what the problem may be. My daughter has "Developmental apraxia of speech (DAS) " which is where she knows what she wants to say, but has a problem forming her mouth in the correct way to say it. She sees her speech therapist once or twice a week at our house. She loves it and she is improving well.  (+ info)

What are oral rehydration salts and ringer lactate?

I'm doing a presentation on water and waterborne illnesses. Supposedly, Cholera is treated with oral rehydration salts and ringer lactate. Please explain how these methods work and what they are. Any information on them will be appreciated.

You can search about ORESOL (Oral Rehydration Solution) or in easier terms a solution thats made up of 1 liter of water with 8 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of salt. This solution is the most inexpensive solution for rehydration especially in 3rd world countries. Ringer Lactate (Lactated Ringer) is a dextrose solution (IV fluids), I forgot if it's a hypotonic or isotonic solution. But you can search for that.  (+ info)

What is the difference between an oral drug examination and a urine sample examination?

I need to know how far back an oral examination is good at detecting drug use. I have an important interview coming up with a company I want to work for and if given the job, I will have to submit to an oral drug screening. I don't know if I should have something to worry about or if it's a less effective method than the urine specimen examination.

An oral examination doesn't go back nearly as far as a urine sample. Its out of your saliva quicker than your urine.

"For most drugs, the window of detection in oral fluid is about one-to-three days."  (+ info)

How long does it take for oral contraceptives to become effective after being on antibiotics?

I use oral contraceptives alone for birth control, and was prescribed a seven day course of Macrobid. I did have break through bleeding on the second day... When do the oral contraceptives become effective again in preventing pregnancy?

i believe like 3 or 4 days.. for the meds to get out of your system.. if i were you just to play it safe i would wait 7 days or use condoms too  (+ info)

How safe is oral surgery if there is a chance you could be pregnant?

I am having my wisdom teeth extracted on the 18th, there is a chance I could be pregnant, bc my husband and I have been ttc for a year. Does anyone know if you can have oral surgery when you might be pregnant, and if you can would harm the fetus?

Considering they gave me an iv and put me to sleep when I got mine out, I'd say it's not safe. I know when I was definitely pregnant and I had a cavity that needed to be taken care of, they waited to fix it until after I had my baby. And that would have only been a shot of novocaine. A lot more is involved for a set of wisdom teeth. I'd definitely speak with them first.  (+ info)

How long after giving oral sex can you typically see an outbreak of herpes?

How can you be sure you have herpes once you have engaged in oral sex? How long will it typically take for someone to see the visual symptoms of and STD once infected? Informative answers are greatly appreciated.

You don't always get genital herpes from oral sex but it's possible.I contracted oral herpes on my genitals after receiving oral sex from my boy friend who had a healing cold sore. You could see one as early as 2 days but your body can suppress the virus to keep it from breaking out for months or even years after you contracted it. It won't always be a visual symptom but you may feel some burning or tingling sensations down there before you see any thing.
Cold sores can be passed (what can be caused by oral herpes) to the genitals during oral sex if there is an out break. When there is no out break it's harder but still slightly possible to pass on.
As soon as you start to feel symptoms or have an out break, get the out break tested by your doctor for herpes.  (+ info)

Can I start taking oral decongestants after the 3 days of using nasal spray?

I have been informed that nasal sprays should only be used for 3 days. But after that, what can I do to relieve my stuffy nose? Can I then start taking oral decongestants?

The 3 day rule for nasal sprays applies to Afrin and Neosynephrine. Oral decongestants can cause problems also but to a lesser extent, you can take the oral decongestants right away. If you have a stuffy nose from allergies, try a nasal steroid or antihistamine spray. These are powerful medications and don't have the rebound congestion problems.  (+ info)
