Dysbacteriosis

Dysbacteriosis is a violation of the balance of microflora in the human body.

Our body is home to many different bacteria. Some of them are useful, supportive of vital functions and necessary for health, while others belong to the so-called conditionally pathogenic. Under certain conditions, they begin to multiply intensively, displacing beneficial microorganisms, and then the balance of microflora is disturbed and various disorders occur. This condition is called dysbiosis. Most often, intestinal dysbiosis occurs.

Representatives of normal microflora include lactobacilli, bacteriodes, bifidobacteria, enterococci and Escherichia coli, conditionally pathogenic – staphylococci, Proteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, etc. Continue reading

Rotavirus: signs and treatment

Rotavirus is a virus of the genus Rotavirus that causes inflammation of the stomach and intestines, as well as the upper respiratory tract. Mostly small children fall ill, from 1.5 to 5 years.

Rotavirus is a highly contagious infection. It is transmitted through dirty hands or objects (toys, furniture, door handles), where, in turn, the rotavirus gets from feces (through unwashed hands) or from Continue reading

From frost to heat: what is the danger of a sharp temperature drop

Facial redness
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.

Nose snot
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
