Sore throat

A sore throat is pain, scratchiness or irritation of the throat that often worsens when you swallow. The most common cause of a sore throat (pharyngitis) is a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu. A sore throat caused by a virus resolves on its own.

Strep throat (streptococcal infection), a less common type of sore throat caused by bacteria, requires treatment with antibiotics to prevent complications. Other less common causes of sore throat might require more complex treatment.

Treatment for Poliomyelitis

No drug can kill the virus once an infection has begun, but it can be prevented with vaccine. Treatment is directed at controlling the symptoms of the disease. People with minor poliomyelitis are treated with bed rest and over-the-counter medicines to control fever and muscle aches.
People with major poliomyelitis may require additional treatments, including:

    Physical therapy – Therapy helps to minimize damage to paralyzed muscles and to help people regain mobility as the acute illness resolves. Treatment for paralysis depends on which muscles are affected.
    Measures to prevent urinary tract infections – If the bladder muscles do not contract normally, the bladder may not empty completely. This can lead to urinary infections. Using catheters to empty the bladder may be necessary, and long-term use of antibiotics is recommended in some cases.
    Mechanical breathing support – When polio weakens the chest muscles so much that they cannot move the lungs (cannot breathe), people can be kept alive by placing a tube into their windpipe (the trachea). This tube is placed through an opening in the neck, called a tracheotomy. Breathing is performed by a machine called a ventilator that moves air in and out of the lungs. A catheter attached to a suction motor can remove excessive mucus through the tracheostomy

How to Prevent Poliomyelitis

The most effective way to prevent polio infection is to be vaccinated. The polio vaccine is over 90% effective in providing immunity to the polio virus. Organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and Rotary International are involved in massive vaccination campaigns to eliminate the polio virus worldwide. Most children in developed countries are routinely vaccinated.

Causes Poliomyelitis

Polio is caused by the poliovirus, a highly contagious virus specific to humans. The virus usually enters the environment in the feces of someone who is infected. In areas with poor sanitation, the virus easily spreads through the fecal-oral route, via contaminated water or food. In addition, direct contact with a person infected with the virus can cause polio. The infection with poliovirus and direct contact with persons increase the risk of Post Polio Syndrome in many children or even adults.

How to diagnose Poliomyelitis

Doctors often recognize polio by symptoms, such as neck and back stiffness, abnormal reflexes, and difficulty swallowing and breathing. To confirm the diagnosis, a sample or specimen’s secretion from the throat, and feces (stool), and occasionally cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) would be taken for culture.
CDC laboratories conduct testing for poliovirus including:

    Genome sequencing
    Intratypic differentiation

What is Poliomyelitis?

Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. It is an infectious viral disease that affects the central nervous system and can cause temporary or permanent paralysis, most especially in the leg. Children younger than 5 years old are more likely to contract the virus than any other group.

Complications of Syphilis

Syphilis was once a major public health threat, commonly causing serious long-term health problems such as arthritis, brain damage, and blindness.

At its beginning stage, syphilis will cause sores called chancre in the body. Chancres are seen mostly in genital areas of the body. Syphilis can also cause rash, mild fever, fatigue, headache, sore throat, patchy hair loss, and swollen glands through the body. If left untreated syphilis can spread to all areas of the body.

During the tertiary stage of syphilis, small, rubbery lesions may develop on the bones, skin, nervous system tissue, and/or arteries of the heart or the brain. Due to these lesions and other health complications, these individuals are susceptible to heart attack

Natural and Herbal Treatments

A variety of natural herbal and non-herbal supplements may be helpful in treating your syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases. According to certified nutritional consultant Phyllis A. Balch, author of "Prescription for Nutritional Healing," beneficial non-herbal supplements may include free-form amino acids, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, zinc, colloidal silver and coenzyme Q10. Helpful herbal supplements include garlic, kelp, hops, goldenseal and red clover. Not all dietary supplements used in treating this condition have been studied using current scientific testing methods.

Garlic Supplement

Garlic is well-known for its natural healing properties. It is an excellent cure for STDs. However, it may not work for all kinds of STDs and towards its prevention. The antiseptic and antiviral power of garlic naturally cleans the system. It works very well if taken in the form of supplement.

Treatment for Syphilis

A single intramuscular injection of long acting Benzathine penicillin G (2.4 million units administered intramuscularly) will cure a person who has primary, secondary or early latent syphilis. Three doses of long acting Benzathine penicillin G (2.4 million units administered intramuscularly) at weekly intervals is recommended for individuals with late latent syphilis or latent syphilis of unknown duration. Treatment will kill the syphilis bacterium and prevent further damage, but it will not repair damage already done.
Doxycycline is the best alternative for treating early and late latent syphilis. Syphilis associated with HIV infection does not require any enhanced antimicrobial therapy.

Penicillin is the drug of choice to treat syphilis.
In the treatment of late syphilis by weekly injections, missing a dose of penicillin for a period of 10-14 days does not require restarting the entire course of injections.

How to Prevent Syphilis

Syphilis is spread from sexual contact with someone who has it. It can be passed even if no one cums. Syphilis is spread during vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
So the best way to avoid syphilis and other STDs is to not have vaginal, anal, or oral sex at all. But most people have sex at some point in their lives, so knowing how to have safer sex is important. Using protection when you have sex really helps to lower your chances of getting an STD.
Getting tested for STDs regularly is another important way to keep yourself healthy.

    Avoid having sex with multiple partners
    Avoid sharing sex toys
    Get screened for sexually transmitted infections and talk to your partners about their results
    Syphilis can also be transmitted through shared needles. Avoid sharing needles if you’re going to use drugs
    Use a dental dam (a square piece of latex) or condoms during oral
