The original antibacterial sulfonamides are synthetic antimicrobial agents that contain the sulfonamide group. Some sulfonamides are also devoid of antibacterial activity, e.g., the anticonvulsant sultiame. The sulfonylureas and thiazide diuretics are newer drug groups based on the antibacterial sulfonamides. Allergies to sulfonamide are common. According to data the overall incidence of adverse drug reactions to sulfa antibiotics is approximately 3%, close to penicillin; hence medications containing sulfonamides are prescribed carefully. It is important to make a distinction between sulfa drugs and other sulfur-containing drugs and additives, such as sulfates and sulfites, which are chemically unrelated to the sulfonamide group, and do not cause the same hypersensitivity reactions seen in the sulfonamides. Because sulfonamides displace bilirubin from albumin, kernicterus (brain damage due to excess bilirubin) is an important potential side effect of sulfonamide use... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibiotics Antibiotics, also called antibacterials, are a type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infection. They may either kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. A limited number of antibiotics also possess antiprotozoal activity. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses such as the common cold or influenza, and may be harmful when taken inappropriately. In 1928, Alexander Fleming identified penicillin, the first chemical compound with antibiotic properties. Fleming was working on a culture of disease-causing bacteria when he noticed the spores of little green mold in one of his culture plates. He observed that the presence of the mold killed or prevented the growth of the bacteria. Antibiotics revolutionized medicine in the 20th century, and have together with vaccination led to the near eradication of diseases such as tuberculosis in the developed world. Their effectiveness and easy access led to overuse, especially in livestock raising, prompting bacteria to develop resistance. This has led to widespread problems with antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance, so much as to prompt the World Health Organization to classify antimicrobial resistance as a "serious threat [that] is no longer a prediction for the future, it is happening right now in every region of the world and has the potential to affect anyone, of any age, in any country". The era of antibacterial chemotherapy began with the discovery of arsphenamine, first synthesized by Alfred Bertheim and Paul Ehrlich in 1907, used to treat syphilis. The first systemically active antibacterial drug, prontosil was discovered in 1933 by Gerhard Domagk, for which he was awarded the 1939 Nobel Prize. All classes of antibiotics in use today were first discovered prior to the mid 1980s. Sometimes the term antibiotic is used to refer to any substance used against microbes... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manure#Livestock_antibiotics Livestock antibiotics In 2007, a University of Minnesota study[3] indicated that foods such as corn, lettuce, and potatoes have been found to accumulate antibiotics from soils spread with animal manure that contains these drugs. Organic foods may be much more or much less likely to contain antibiotics, depending on their sources and treatment of manure. For instance, by Soil Association Standard 4.7.38, most organic arable farmers either have their own supply of manure (which would, therefore, not normally contain drug residues) or else rely on green manure crops for the extra fertility (if any nonorganic manure is used by organic farmers, then it usually has to be rotted or composted to degrade any residues of drugs and eliminate any pathogenic bacteria — Standard 4.7.38, Soil Association organic farming standards). On the other hand, as found in the University of Minnesota study, the non-usage of artificial fertilizers, and resulting exclusive use of manure as fertilizer, by organic farmers can result in significantly greater accumulations of antibiotics in organic foods...

Athletic people often face upper respiratory infections and other medical illnesses. Occasionally they need antibiotics to treat these infections. While it can be safe to exercise or play sports while taking antibiotics, there are some concerns worth discussing with your doctor. The concern that has received the most attention is the risk of tendon rupture. Fluoroquinolones, including ciprofloxacin (Cipro) and levofloxacin (Levaquin), are often used to treat urinary infections. These antibiotics have been associated with increased risks of tendon ruptures. Antibiotic-associated diarrhea can occur when you take antibiotics. These medications can alter the normal bacteria in the G.I. system. In order to decrease your chance of having diarrhea, your doctor can keep the duration of antibiotic treatment as short as possible that still eliminates the infection. Antibiotics that have been linked to photosensitivity are a concern for anyone who plays outdoor sports or exercises outside. Tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and sulfa drugs are believed to carry this risk. It is possible that you could develop a serious sunburn on body parts exposed to the sun or have an increased risk of skin cancer if you use these medications. Theoretically you should avoid these antibiotics or use sunscreen and wear fully protective clothing. By no means does this list of concerns represent medical advice. If you have an infection and require antibiotic treatment, you should ask the doctor about possible complications with those drugs, especially as they pertain to exercise and sports. Please remember, while I appreciate your questions, I cannot and will not offer specific medical advice by email, online, on my show, or in the comments at the end of these posts.

ß-Lactams: Mechanisms of Action and Resistance
Developed and produced by http://www.MechanismsinMedicine.com Animation Description: This animation starts with the explanation of bacterial cell wall synthesis, the process targeted by ß-Lactams. Structurally, most bacteria consist of a cell membrane surrounded by a cell wall and, for some bacteria, an additional outer layer. Internal to the cell membrane is the cytoplasm which contains ribosomes, a nuclear region and in some cases granules and/or vesicles. Depending on the bacterial species, a number of different external structures may be found such as a capsule, flagella and pili. In gram negative bacteria, the gap between the cell membrane and the cell wall is known as the periplasmic space. Most gram positive bacteria do not possess a periplasmic space but have only periplasm where metabolic digestion occurs and new cell peptidoglycan is attached. Peptidoglycan, the most important component of the cell wall, is a polymer made of N-acetyl muramic acid alternating with N-acetyl glucosamine which are cross-linked by chains of four amino acids. The function of the bacterial cell wall is to maintain the characteristic shape of the organism and to prevent the bacterium from bursting when fluid flows into the organism by osmosis. Synthesis of peptidoglycan and ultimately the bacterial cell wall occurs in a number of stages. One of the first stages is the addition of 5 amino acids to N-acetyl muramic acid. Next, N-acetyl glucosamine is added to the N-acetyl muramic acid to form a precursor of peptidoglycan. This peptidoglycan precursor is then transported across the cell membrane to a cell wall acceptor in the periplasm. Once in the periplasm, the peptidoglycan precursors bind to cell wall acceptors, and undergo extensive crosslinking. Two major enzymes are involved in crosslinking: transpeptidase and D-alanyl carboxypeptidase. These enzymes are also known as penicillin binding proteins because of their ability to bind penicillins and cephalosporins. Eventually, several layers of peptidoglycan are formed all of which are crosslinked to create the cell wall. Gram positive bacteria have many more layers than gram negative bacteria and thus have a much thicker cell wall. Beta-lactam antibiotics include all penicillins and cephalosporins that contain a chemical structure called a beta-lactam ring. This structure is capable of binding to the enzymes that cross-link peptidoglycans. Beta-lactams interfere with cross-linking by binding to transpeptidase and D-alanyl carboxypeptidase enzymes, thus preventing bacterial cell wall synthesis. By inhibiting cell wall synthesis, the bacterial cell is damaged. Gram positive bacteria have a high internal osmotic pressure. Without a normal, rigid cell wall, these cells burst when subjected to the low osmotic pressure of their surrounding environment. As well, the antibiotic-penicillin binding protein complex stimulates the release of autolysins that are capable of digesting the existing cell wall. Beta-lactam antibiotics are therefore considered bactericidal agents. Bacterial resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics may be acquired by several routes. One of the most important mechanisms is through a process known as transformation. During transformation, chromosomal genes are transferred from one bacterium to another. When a bacterium containing a resistance gene dies, naked DNA is released into the surrounding environment. If a bacterium of sufficient similarity to the dead one is in the vicinity, it will be able to uptake the naked DNA containing the resistance gene. Once inside the bacterium, the resistance gene may be transferred from the naked DNA to the chromosome of the host bacteria by a process known as homologous transformation. Over time, the bacterium may acquire enough of these resistance genes to result in a remodelling of the segment of the host DNA. If this remodelled DNA segment codes for cross-linking enzymes (i.e. penicillin binding proteins), the result is the production of altered penicillin binding proteins. These altered penicillin binding proteins can still cross-link the peptidoglycan layers of the cell wall but have a reduced affinity for beta-lactam antibiotics thus rendering the bacterium resistant to the effects of penicillin and other beta-lactam agents. This transfer process has resulted in penicillin-resistant S. pneumoniae through the acquisition of genes from other naturally occurring penicillin-resistant Streptococcus species. A second important mechanism by which bacteria become resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics is by the production of enzymes capable of inactivating or modifying the drug before it has a chance to exert its effect on the bacteria.

Sulfa Allergies vs  Sulfite Allergies
Sulfa Allergies versus Sulfite Allergies. Diagram: Sensitivities to sulfonamides, otherwise called sulfa drugs, are normal. Sulfa drugs were the main effective treatment against bacterial diseases in the 1930s. Despite everything they're utilized as a part of anti-infection agents and different meds, similar to diuretics and anticonvulsants, today. Individuals with HIV/AIDS are at specific hazard for sulfa affectability. Since their names are comparative, individuals frequently mistake sulfa for sulfites. Sulfites happen normally in many wines. They're additionally utilized as an additive in different sustenances. Sulfites and sulfa drugs are synthetically random, however they can both reason unfavorably susceptible responses in individuals. Sulfa Allergy: *Symptoms of an unfavorably susceptible response to sulfa include: *hives. *swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, and throat. *drop in circulatory strain. *anaphylaxis (a serious, hazardous response that requires prompt therapeutic consideration). Once in a while, instances of serum ailment like responses can happen around 10 days after a sulfa sedate treatment starts. Side effects include: *fever. *skin ejections. *hives. *drug-initiated joint pain. *swollen lymph hubs. You should contact a specialist promptly on the off chance that you have these manifestations. Stay away from the accompanying drugs in case you're hypersensitive or have an affectability to sulfa: *antibiotic mix medications, for example, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Septra, Bactrim) and erythromycin-sulfisoxazole. *sulfasalazine (Azulfidine) utilized for Crohn's infection, ulcerative colitis, and rheumatoid joint inflammation. *Dapsone (used to treat uncleanliness, dermatitis, and certain kinds of pneumonia). Not all medications that contain sulfonamides cause responses in all individuals. Numerous individuals with sulfa hypersensitivities and sensitivities might have the capacity to securely take the accompanying pharmaceuticals: *some diabetes drugs including glyburide (Glynase, Diabeta) and glimepiride (Amaryl). *non-steroidal calming drugs (NSAIDs, for example, celecoxib (Celebrex). headache drug sumatriptan (Imitrex, Sumavel, and Dosepro). *some diuretics including hydrochlorthiazide (Microzide) and furosemide (Lasix). Sulfite Allergy: Side effects of a hypersensitive response to sulfites include: *headache. *rash. *hives. *swelling of the mouth and lips. *wheezing or inconvenience relaxing. *asthma assault (in individuals with asthma). *anaphylaxis. In the event that you encounter more genuine side effects of a sulfite sensitivity, contact your specialist. Hypersensitivity requires crisis medicinal consideration. As per the Cleveland Clinic, individuals with asthma have between a 1 out of 10 and 1 of every 20 shot of having a response to sulfites. Sulfites are normal in handled sustenances, fixings, and mixed drinks, for example, red and white wine. Sulfites happen normally in wine amid aging, and numerous winemakers add them to help the procedure along. For as long as two decades, the U.S. Sustenance and Drug Administration has expected winemakers to show the notice "contains sulfites" if levels surpass a specific edge. Numerous organizations deliberately add the mark to their items also. Individuals with sensitivities ought to dodge nourishment items with the accompanying chemicals on the mark: *sulfur dioxide. *potassium bisulfate. *potassium metabisulfite. *sodium bisulfite. *sodium metabisulfite. *sodium sulfite. allergies,asthma,cat allergies,sun allergy,symptoms of allergies,food allergies,eye allergies,allergic asthma,gluten allergy,latex allergy,pollen allergy,egg allergy,allergy shots,shellfish allergy,seasonal allergies symptoms,food allergy rash,seasonal allergies,allergy rash,skin allergy,allergy medicine,sulfa allergy,sulfa drug allergy,sulfa allergy home remedies All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

Causes ,Symptoms and Treatment of Drug allergy
What Is a Drug Allergy. Presentation. A medication sensitivity is a hypersensitive response to a drug. With an unfavorably susceptible response, your invulnerable framework, which battles contamination and illness, responds to the medication. This response can cause side effects, for example, rash, fever, and inconvenience relaxing. Genuine medication hypersensitivity isn't normal. Under 5 to 10 percent of negative medication responses are caused by certified medication sensitivity. The rest are reactions of the medication. All the same, it's essential to know whether you have a medication hypersensitivity and what to do about it. For what reason do tranquilize sensitivities happen?. Your resistant framework shields you from malady. It's intended to battle remote intruders, for example, infections, microscopic organisms, parasites, and different risky substances. With a medication hypersensitivity, your invulnerable framework botches a medication that enters your body for one of these trespassers. Because of what it supposes is a danger, your safe framework starts to make antibodies. These are unique proteins that are customized to assault the intruder. For this situation, they assault the medication. This invulnerable reaction prompts expanded aggravation, which can cause indications, for example, rash, fever, or inconvenience relaxing. The resistant reaction may happen the first occasion when you take the medication, or it may not be until after you've taken it ordinarily with no issue. Is a medication sensitivity constantly unsafe?. Not generally. The indications of a medication sensitivity might be mild to the point that you scarcely see them. You may encounter just a slight rash. A serious medication hypersensitivity, in any case, can be perilous. It could cause hypersensitivity. Hypersensitivity is a sudden, perilous, entire body response to a medication or other allergen. An anaphylactic response could happen minutes after you take the medication. At times, it could occur inside 12 hours of taking the medication. Side effects can include: *irregular pulse. *trouble relaxing. *swelling. *unconsciousness. Hypersensitivity can be lethal if it's not treated immediately. On the off chance that you have any of the side effects in the wake of taking a medication, have somebody call 911 or go to the closest crisis room. Unfavorably susceptible like responses. A few medications can cause a hypersensitivity compose response the first occasion when they are utilized. Medications that can cause a response like hypersensitivity include: *morphine. *aspirin. *some chemotherapy drugs. *the colors utilized as a part of some X-beams. This kind of response ordinarily does not include the resistant framework and isn't a genuine sensitivity. Nonetheless, the manifestations and treatment are the same with respect to genuine hypersensitivity, and it is similarly as perilous. What drugs cause the most medication sensitivities?. Distinctive medications effectsly affect individuals. All things considered, certain medications complete tend to cause more hypersensitive responses than others. These include: *antibiotics, for example, penicillin and sulfa anti-infection agents, for example, sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim. *aspirin. *nonsteroidal calming solutions, for example, ibuprofen. *anticonvulsants, for example, carbamazepine and lamotrigine. *drugs utilized as a part of monoclonal counter acting agent treatment, for example, trastuzumab and ibritumomab tiuxetan. *chemotherapy medications, for example, paclitaxel, docetaxel, and procarbazine. What are the contrasts between symptoms and a medication sensitivity?. A medication hypersensitivity just influences certain individuals. It generally includes the resistant framework and it generally causes negative impacts. Be that as it may, a reaction may happen in any individual taking a medication. Additionally, it ordinarily does not include the insusceptible framework. A symptom is any activity of the medication — destructive or supportive — that doesn't identify with the medication's fundamental occupation.

Sulfonamides - Medical Meaning and Pronunciation
https://word2speech.com/medical/ Sulfonamides Sulfonamides: The sulfa-related group of antibiotics, which are used to treat bacterial infection and some fungal infections. Examples of sulfonamides includes sulfadiazine, sulfamethizole (brand name: Thiosulfil Forte), sulfamethoxazole (Gantanol), sulfasalazine (Azulfidine), sulfisoxazole (Gantrisin), and various high-strength combinations of three sulfonamides. Sulfa drugs kill bacteria and fungi by interfering with cell metabolism. They were the wonder drugs before penicillin and are still used today. Because sulfa drugs concentrate in the urine before being excreted, treating urinary tract infections is one of their most common uses. Sulfa drugs can have a number of potentially dangerous interactions with prescription and over-the-counter drugs (including PABA sunscreens), and are not appropriate for patients with some health conditions. Many people are allergic to sulfa medications. Be sure your doctor knows about any other medications you take, your medication allergies and your full health history before taking sulfonamides.

Sulfonamide (medicine)
Sulfonamide or sulphonamide is the basis of several groups of drugs. The original antibacterial sulfonamides (sometimes called sulfa drugs or sulpha drugs) are synthetic antimicrobial agents that contain the sulfonamide group. Some sulfonamides are also devoid of antibacterial activity, e.g., the anticonvulsant sultiame. The sulfonylureas and thiazide diuretics are newer drug groups based on the antibacterial sulfonamides. Allergies to sulfonamide are common, hence medications containing sulfonamides are prescribed carefully. It is important to make a distinction between sulfa drugs and other sulfur-containing drugs and additives, such as sulfates and sulfites, which are chemically unrelated to the sulfonamide group, and do not cause the same hypersensitivity reactions seen in the sulfonamides.

Dont take Bactrim or Sulfamethoxazole severe inury
Dont take antibiotics like bactrim or cipro unless your life is in danger these drugs are only as a last resort not for minor infections.
Sulfonamide (also called sulphonamide, sulfa drugs or sulpha drugs) is the basis of several groups of drugs. The original antibacterial sulfonamides are synthetic antimicrobial agents that contain the sulfonamide group. Some sulfonamides are also devoid of antibacterial activity, e.g., the anticonvulsant sultiame. The sulfonylureas and thiazide diuretics are newer drug groups based upon the antibacterial sulfonamides. In bacteria, antibacterial sulfonamides act as competitive inhibitors of the enzyme dihydropteroate synthase (DHPS), an enzyme involved in folate synthesis. Sulfonamides are therefore bacteriostatic and inhibit growth and multiplication of bacteria, but do not kill them. Humans, in contrast to bacteria, acquire folate (vitamin B9) through the diet. ....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

How Antibiotics Work ?
Antibiotics work by affecting things that bacterial cells have but human cells don't. For example, human cells do not have cell walls, while many types of bacteria do. The antibiotic penicillin works by keeping a bacterium from building a cell wall. The Antibiotics work at 3 levels,the first level is at Gene Expression of Bacteria,The gene expression of Bacteria is three step process where we see the flow of Information from DNA to RNA to Protein ,we see the DNA ,Transfers its information into mRNA molecules through a process called Transcription and from the information of mRNA molecule, the bacteria produces a Protein in the process of Translation. When both of the processes are stopped by Antibiotics the cell ceases to exist and also the DNA replication of Bacteria is halted by some Antibiotics…. Another novel, working of Antibiotics is that they Inhibit the cell wall synthesis of Bacteria……We humans don’t have cell wall in our cells ,,, so the cell wall becomes easy target of Antibiotics . And finally there are some antibiotics like Sulfa antibiotics that inhibit that inhibit the folate synthesis in Bacteria by competitive inhibition of enzymes. Antibiotics like Rifampicin , clindimycin , Beta Lactam , Pencillin and Chloramphenicol affect the bacteria growth and processes at various levels.

The Dramatic History of the Discovery that Shaped Modern Medicine (2006)
Sulfonamides are used to treat allergies and cough, as well as antifungal and antimalarial functions. The moiety is also present in other medications that are not antimicrobials, including thiazide diuretics (including hydrochlorothiazide, metolazone, and indapamide, among others), loop diuretics (including furosemide, bumetanide, and torsemide), acetazolamide, sulfonylureas (including glipizide, glyburide, among others), and some COX-2 inhibitors (e.g., celecoxib). Sulfasalazine, in addition to its use as an antibiotic, is also used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. Sulfonamide drugs were the first antibiotics to be used systemically, and paved the way for the antibiotic revolution in medicine. The first sulfonamide, trade-named Prontosil, was a prodrug. Experiments with Prontosil began in 1932 in the laboratories of Bayer AG, at that time a component of the huge German chemical trust IG Farben. The Bayer team believed that coal-tar dyes which are able to bind preferentially to bacteria and parasites might be used to attack harmful organisms in the body. After years of fruitless trial-and-error work on hundreds of dyes, a team led by physician/researcher Gerhard Domagk (working under the general direction of Farben executive Heinrich Hörlein) finally found one that worked: a red dye synthesized by Bayer chemist Josef Klarer that had remarkable effects on stopping some bacterial infections in mice. The first official communication about the breakthrough discovery was not published until 1935, more than two years after the drug was patented by Klarer and his research partner Fritz Mietzsch. Prontosil, as Bayer named the new drug, was the first medicine ever discovered that could effectively treat a range of bacterial infections inside the body. It had a strong protective action against infections caused by streptococci, including blood infections, childbed fever, and erysipelas, and a lesser effect on infections caused by other cocci. However, it had no effect at all in the test tube, exerting its antibacterial action only in live animals. Later, it was discovered by Bovet,[7] Federico Nitti and J. and Th. Jacques Tréfouël, a French research team led by Ernest Fourneau at the Pasteur Institute, that the drug was metabolized into two pieces inside the body, releasing from the inactive dye portion a smaller, colorless, active compound called sulfanilamide.[8] The discovery helped establish the concept of "bioactivation" and dashed the German corporation's dreams of enormous profit; the active molecule sulfanilamide (or sulfa) had first been synthesized in 1906 and was widely used in the dye-making industry; its patent had since expired and the drug was available to anyone.[9] The result was a sulfa craze.[10] For several years in the late 1930s, hundreds of manufacturers produced tens of thousands of tons of myriad forms of sulfa. This and nonexistent testing requirements led to the elixir sulfanilamide disaster in the fall of 1937, during which at least 100 people were poisoned with diethylene glycol. This led to the passage of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in 1938 in the United States. As the first and only effective antibiotic available in the years before penicillin, sulfa drugs continued to thrive through the early years of World War II.[11] They are credited with saving the lives of tens of thousands of patients, including Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr. (son of US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt) and Winston Churchill. Sulfa had a central role in preventing wound infections during the war. American soldiers were issued a first-aid kit containing sulfa pills and powder, and were told to sprinkle it on any open wound. The sulfanilamide compound is more active in the protonated form. The drug has very low solubility and sometimes can crystallize in the kidneys, due to its first pKa of around 10. This is a very painful experience, so patients are told to take the medication with copious amounts of water. Newer analogous compounds prevent this complication because they have a lower pKa, around 5–6, making them more likely to remain in a soluble form. Many thousands of molecules containing the sulfanilamide structure have been created since its discovery (by one account, over 5,400 permutations by 1945), yielding improved formulations with greater effectiveness and less toxicity. Sulfa drugs are still widely used for conditions such as acne and urinary tract infections, and are receiving renewed interest for the treatment of infections caused by bacteria resistant to other antibiotics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulfonamide_(medicine)

Trimethoprim sulfa-resistant Escherichia coli: Outpatient
Escherichia coli, a member of the Enterobacteriaceae family of bacteria, is the leading cause of community-acquired urinary tract infections (UTIs). It is also a common cause of food-borne gastrointestinal infections. These maps show outpatient E. coli resistance to trimethoprim-sulfa, a combination antibiotic (also known as TMP/SMZ or co-trimoxazole) that is frequently administered as a first-line therapy for uncomplicated UTIs. In 2000, varied resistance levels to the drug appear across the United States, with most of the resistance in the western half of the country. Higher resistance levels then spread eastward. In 2006, West South Central reports the highest levels of resistance, at just over 25%. East South Central, Mountain and the South Atlantic are nearly as high, with resistance levels between 22.5% and 25%. By 2009, resistance levels higher than 25% are widespread, with only New England remaining under the 20% resistance threshold. The past decade has seen an increase of Enterobacteriaceae organisms that produce bacterial enzymes that confer resistance to many antibiotic classes, including sulfonamides. In severe cases, this resistance limits treatment options to newer antibiotics of the carbapenem class (including imipenem), which cost more, require non-oral administration, and speed the development of resistance to our most powerful drugs. The national average resistance level for the sample was 20.2%, rising from 17.4% in 2000 to 23.9% in 2009. The sample consists of 2,113,859 E. coli outpatient isolates tested for Trimetophrim-sulfa resistance. Data are not available from the following states: AR (2008--2009), CO (2006--2009), GA (2007--2009), IA (2008--2009), KY (2007--2009), MI (2008--2009), NV (2009), RI (2000--2004), SD (2005--2009), UT (2007--2009), CT, NH, MT, and WY.

How to Tell If a Skin Rash Is Serious | Beautiful Skin
Watch more How to Have Beautiful Skin videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/483842-How-to-Tell-If-a-Skin-Rash-Is-Serious-Beautiful-Skin Hi, I'm Dr. Elissa Lunder. I've been practicing dermatology at Dermatology Partners in Wellesley, Massachusetts for the past 10 years. I believe that skin care doesn't have to be complicated. With a few simple steps you can have beautiful skin. You can visit Dermatology Partners on the web at dermatologypartnersinc.com. So today we're gonna talk about skin care. Most skin rashes are not serious; however, there are few Dermatology Emergencies, which you do want to seek medical attention sooner than later. One of the most common ones we see in our office is Shingles or Herpes Zoster. Shingles or Herpes Zoster is when you start feeling a burning pain or tingling and development of blisters usually in a line and just on one side of the body. Shingles is a reactivation of the chicken pox virus and it tends to be redness, pain, or itch and eventually blisters that you develop anywhere in your body and it typically forms a line and it does not cross the midline of your body. They can be especially serious if you develop this near the eye area as it can cause blindness. So, if you think or have any sort of suspicion that you could have Shingles you want to call your doctor immediately. With Shingles if you treat it within 48 hours, you can have much less long-term sequelae than if you wait for treatment. The other main Dermatology Emergency that we see that can be serious or drug rashes and drug rashes can happen from anything. They can happen from herbal supplements, from vitamins, from Tylenol with most in common medication that causes a drug rash or antibiotics. The rashes typically start after you have been on the medication for a few days and the rash can be redness that you can develop anywhere on your body. Drug rashes that are extensive can cover you from head to toe. If you develop blisters with this rash that is when it can get serious. So, if you start developing blisters in your mouth or your genital area, you want to call your doctor immediately in addition to stopping the medication. So, if you develop the skin rash that causes swelling or difficulty breathing, you want to call 911.

Antibiotic Resistant E. Coli In U.S.
On May 27th, 2016, a Pennsylvania woman was infected with a super strain of the E. Coli virus, that is resistant to Colistin. Colistin was developed in the 1950s, but doctors largely stopped prescribing it due to its severe side effects. The drug has seen a comeback in the last ten years as a last resort drug, for when other antibiotics fail. Doctors pointed out that drug-resistant infections are not new, and that the overprescription of antibiotics is part of the problem. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/bacteria-resistant-last-resort-antibiotic-appears-us http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Urinary Tract Infections
Urinary tract infections, or cystitis, are an incredibly common reason why women go to the doctor. Approximately one third of all women experience at least one episode of this infection by around 25 years of age, and half of all women will have at least one in their lifetime. Since it’s such a common reason why women go to the doctors, urinary tract infections are always high on the list whenever a woman complains of pelvic pain. The most common symptoms usually are pain when urinating, pain in the pelvis, cloudy smelling urine, frequency of urination, and getting that sudden urge to have to go. Some patients have all of the symptoms, making the diagnosis very straightforward. Other patients have just a few of the symptoms, making it a little bit more complex. In fact, one of the main duties for the physician in these cases is to make sure that nothing else is occuring. Pelvic infections, such as sexually transmitted diseases, colitis, vaginal infections, constipation, ovarian pain, and appendix pain can all present with somewhat similar symptoms. The diligent physician will at least consider these other infirmities before leaping to the conclusion of urinary tract infection. The physician diagnoses a urinary tract infection with a urinalysis. Looking for the presence of bacteria, white blood cells (leukocytes), and a chemical from the bacteria called nitrites, the urinalysis is essential to rule in the diagnosis. It should be noted that ultrasounds, x-rays, and CT scans are not helpful in the diagnosis of urinary tract infections unless a mass or abscess is being considered. Treatment usually is a three-day course of antibiotics for women. While it in older days seven to ten days would’ve been needed, we now know that three days is usually sufficient. Bactrim, a sulfa drug, is still used in those who are not allergic and where Bactrim does not have a high resistance. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is also used, and as a third-line drug Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) is used as a five day course. However, Macrodantin doesn’t actually kill the bacteria, and is usually reserved when other treatments simply don’t work. While other antibiotics not listed here are also often used, they should be used further down the road when these first-line therapies don’t seem to work. Preventing urinary tract infections can be tricky. Wiping patterns don’t seem to make as much of a difference as we once thought, and underwear fabric choice such as non-cotton underwear doesn’t seem to help either. Tampon use does not seem to play a role in the development of urinary tract infections. However, it does seem that cranberry juice and cranberry extract can help prevent urinary tract infections. Three to four hundred milligrams of cranberry extract twice daily seems to be an appropriate dose, which corresponds to three 8-ounce glasses of cranberry juice daily. A small daily dose of preventative antibiotics can also be given to patients who have urinary tract infections over and over again. While this does seem to work while the patient is taking them, this treatment is associated with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea from the antibiotics themselves. It also only seems to work as long as patients taking the antibiotic. Therefore, this should be done only when absolutely nothing else seems to work. Kidney function is usually preserved with a urinary tract infection, and the long-term outlook is excellent. Please contact your physician if you have any questions about urinary tract infection, or feel like you need treatment for it. Proper treatment can save a lot of pain and discomfort. Pray for those with serious infections.
