kyle leon review - The most common form of transmission

Dec 21st 2013 at 3:51 AM

How shigelloses treated?
The shigellosis should be treated with antibiotics. Persons with mild infections even recover without treatment with antibiotics.
As one acquires a shigellosis?
The most common form of transmission of shigellosis is through contact with infected people. The organism is found in the feces of people when they are sick

and even after cured for up to two weeks.
Transmission occurs when hygiene habits are inadequate.
Infection can also occur through ingestion of contaminated food, which may have normal appearance and odor
Foods become contaminated through handling in unsatisfactory hygienic conditions, the use of contaminated water and through insects.

Drinking or swimming in contaminated water can also cause shigellosis
There are long term consequences?
Those with diarrhea recover completely, although it may take several months before bowel function becomes normal. However, patients infected with Shebelle

Flexner may have Reiter's syndrome, characterized by joint pain, eye irritation and painful urination. These symptoms can last for months and may become

chronic and difficult to treat arthritis. Shebelle dysenteries type1 can cause hemolytic uremic syndrome

How shigellosis is preventable? There is no vaccine to prevent shigellosis transmission from one individual to another can be prevented by constant hand

washing with soap.
Caution should be intensified in the case of children in diapers.
