Aureus gets into the human organism through airborne droplets. If mucous membranes and the skin is clean, not damaged, have strong immunity, it is likely that a staph infection will be defeated. If the body can not cope in the fight against staph infection, foci of infection on the skin and mucous membranes will not keep itself waiting long. When the body can not keep disease-causing microbes on the skin, they penetrate inside and affect the internal organs.
Staphylococcus aureus is the causative agent of a very dangerous disease. If you have boils, abscesses, carbuncles, scarlatiniform rash, the reason for this is staph. Staph infectionslike sore throat, generalized infection, causing the defeat of bones and joints, toxic shock syndrome, pneumonia and pleurisy, enteritis and enterocolitis, staphylococcal meningitis and brain abscess, barley and conjunctivitis – this is not a complete list of diseases that occur due to the ingestion of staph.
To confirm that the Staphylococcus was the cause of the infection, it is necessary to identify its causative agent. To do this, the patient is taken for examination of feces, urine, sputum, blood, purulent contents or cerebrospinal fluid. In laboratory conditions determined by the causative agent and investigated its sensitivity to antibiotic drugs with the purpose of effective treatment.
Depending on which organ or system was affected by staph infection and determine treatment. In the fight against staph used antimicrobial drugs, i.e. antibiotics. Dose and method of administration depends on the particular case. Also the use of antiseptic substances for the treatment of pustular rash. As a measure against intoxication the patient is prescribed adjuvants. Associated symptoms (fever, dehydration, pressure drop, etc.) also need treatment.
Advice 2 : How to identify staph
Staphylococci (Staphylococcus) is a genus of gram-positive, immobile bacteria, some of which are (saprophytic, and epidermal Staphylococcus) can cause suppurative diseases of the skin, sore throat, pneumonia, enterocolitis, disorders of the nervous system and other infections, sometimes ending in death. The cause of staph infections are a lowered immune system, improper diet, stress, adverse environmental conditions, etc.
Pay attention to the symptoms of illness. The form of staph infection can be distinguished into early and late. The first usually manifests itself acutely with a sharp rise of temperature, vomiting, diarrhea, etc to make the diagnosis on their own not – to seek medical attention immediately. After 3-5 days manifested the latter form of infection: affected skin and appear purulent sores. And if time does not begin to treat staph infection can penetrate deeper affect internal organs and cause sepsis.
Enterocolitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus, may be suspected by frequent, mushy, mucous in the stool, regurgitation, bloating. In this patient, fever and may start vomiting. In infectious conjunctivitis red, swollen and watery eyes. Releases the pus, which forms greenish-yellow crusts. After sleep, the patient often lashes stick together so that it is impossible to open eyes. In "pemphigus" newborn baby appear on the skin blisters with turbid contents, it is red and swollen. When multiple abscesses on the skin spilling crimson red pustules and yellow-green pus, fever.
Do the tests at the slightest suspicion of Staphylococcus infection. In the gastro-intestinal symptoms - feces for pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microflora. It is collected in a disposable container and as quickly as possible transported to the laboratory. When symptoms of diseases of the respiratory system - seeding from the nose and throat. Before this analysis absolutely can not eat and even brushing your teeth. Conjunctivitis collect purulent discharge from the surface of the lower eyelid. For the detection of staphylococcal infection on the skin in a patient taking a scraping, or wound drainage.
Despite its resistance to external factors, the staph was "afraid" of the immune defense of the healthy person. Thus, to prevent the development of infection, you should strengthen the body and observe good personal hygiene.
