Frambesia is an infectious disease that affects the skin, cartilage and bones. It is caused by the bacterium Treponema pertenue. This is a subspecies of spirochetes belonging to the same species as Treponema pallidum – a pale spirochete, the causative agent of a sexually transmitted disease – syphilis. But unlike the latter, frambesia is not sexually transmitted, therefore it is sometimes called a type of non-venereal syphilis and is assigned to the group of treponematoses.
This disease is characteristic of tropical countries with a humid, hot climate, so its other name is tropical syphilis. Frambesia is also known as pian, tropical granuloma, tropical polypapilloma.
The disease is common in equatorial Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific, and the Caribbean. Continue reading

As is known from physics, in the cold, the vessels narrow and in the heat, on the contrary, expand. Thisexplains the redness of the skin. Blush all over the cheek that appears after frost, it seems, should not upset us. Worse, when the nose turns red – it is ugly, but not only. The fact is that such sharp jumps in temperature are a risk factor for rosacea – a disease associated with loss of elasticity in capillaries. As a result of this, microcirculation is disturbed, the nutrition of the skin is deteriorating, the networks of blood vessels, asterisks appear on it.
Such a flow from the nose represents the protection of the body from microbes and the restoration of the normal functioning of this organ. Our nasal cavity is usually wet, covered with mucus, which collects dust and pathogenic microbes, without passing them into the body. Then all this dirt is removed by cilia, which constantly oscillate in the direction of exit from the nose. At low temperatures, the vessels in the nose narrow, the mucous membrane of the nose dries up, the movement of the cilia slows down. In the warmth, the vessels expand, a secret is produced (those same snot), which moisturizes the mucous membrane and removes “debris” from the nose – after all, in the cold, the nose cleaning system worked half-heartedly. Usually snot stops after 10-15 minutes. Continue reading

And instead of going to the beach or the forest on weekends, you have to lie at home in bed and swallow medicines.
Why did it happen? After all, others drink cold water and sit on the drafts – and nothing, healthy, no Continue reading
