Urinary Tract Infection | How To Prevent UTI (2018)

Urinary Tract Infection or UTI. This video is on causes, symptoms, tips to prevent avoid them naturally even when sexually active.

Urinary Tract Infection or UTI for short. UTIs can affect different parts of your urinary tract, including your bladder (cystitis), urethra (urethritis) or kidneys (kidney infection).

UTIs are a worldwide global issue with 8 billion doctor visits worldwide, it’s the number one bacterial infection. Women are 20 to 1 men likely have UTI. It’s all to do with the anatomy but we won’t go into that as this video is about helpful tips that can help prevent a UTI.

This video was sponsored by Dr Fox (Online Doctor & Pharmacy):
https://www.doctorfox.co.uk

SYMPTOMS OF A UTI:
• Needing to pee suddenly or more often than usual
• Pain or a burning sensation when peeing
• Smelly or cloudy pee
• Blood in your pee
• Pain in your lower tummy
• Feeling tired and unwell
• In older people, changes in behaviour such as severe confusion or agitation
• UTI symptoms may be difficult to spot in people with dementia.

TIPS THAT CAN HELP PREVENT A UTI:
Tip 1- Try to drink plenty of water if you have a UTI as it can dilute the bacteria that’s in your bladder and urethra which is the tube that your pee comes out of.

However if you have to take antibiotics don’t drink excessive amounts of water because you need the antibiotics to remain concentrated so it sticks around in the bladder and urethra where the infection is.

Tip 2- Wipe from front to back when you go to the toilet. If you wipe from back to front bad bacteria that colonises the rectum like e.coli can get to the urethra and put you at risk of a UTI.

Tip 3- If you keep getting urinary tract infections after sexual intercourse. Try emptying your bladder soon after sexual intercourse as it can help you prevent a UTI.

Tip 4- Try to fully empty your bladder when you pee and also don’t hold your pee. When you have the urge go for a pee.

Tip 5- Going for a shower instead of a bath can help. Also try wearing loose cotton underwear and avoid tight jeans, trousers and synthetic underwear like nylon.

Tip 6 – Natural remedies: There is very little evidence that drinking cranberry juice or using probiotics reduces your chance of getting UTIs.

SEE A GP IF:
• You’re a man with symptoms of a UTI
• You’re pregnant and have symptoms of a UTI
• Your child has symptoms of a UTI
• You’re caring for someone elderly who may have a UTI
• You haven’t had a UTI before
• You have blood in your pee
• Your symptoms don’t improve within a few days
• Your symptoms come back after treatment
• If you have symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection, you can also get treatment from a sexual health clinic.

SEE A GP URGENTLY IF YOU HAVE:
• Pain in your sides or lower back
• A very high temperature or you feel hot and shivery
• Felt sick or been sick
• Diarrhoea

These symptoms suggest a kidney infection, which can be serious if it isn’t treated.

I have tried my best to add as many symptoms which should prompt you to see a GP but incase I have missed anything please make sure to visit the following pages as well,

Cold Sores | How To Treat A Cold Sore | How To Prevent Cold Sores | How To Get Rid Cold Sore (2018)

How To Treat Cold Sores | How To Stop Getting Cold Sores | How To Prevent A Cold Sore When You Feel It Coming | Cold Sore Treatments

Hey guys! This weeks video is about cold sores, how to prevent them and how to try and treat them.

I couldn’t find any information to clinically prove the effectiveness of some cold sore remedies seen online like distilled vinegar, witch hazel and alcohol, so I can’t recommend them. But feel free to leave a comment if you’ve tried them to let us know how effective they were.

WHAT ARE COLD SORES:
About 1 in 5 people in the UK have recurring cold sores. Cold sores usually resolve on their own without treatment in 7-10 days.

Cold sores, also known as fever blisters or oral herpes, are very common. They can be easy to recognise as they usually appear as red bumps or blisters around the lips and mouth.

Cold sores are caused by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), the oral form of the virus. In fact, 67% of the world population under age 50 has HSV-1 because it is so contagious Once you are infected, the virus never leaves your body. Most people aren’t exactly sure when they first encountered the virus. It’s usually contracted in early childhood where it may not appear as a visible cold sore.

HOW DO COLD SORES SPREAD:
The oral herpes virus is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact. It is even contagious when you can’t see a cold sore. Most people first contract the cold sore virus (HSV-1) when they are very young, usually by skin-to-skin contact with an adult carrying the virus. The virus can spread in various ways: through kissing, or by sharing objects like toothbrushes, water bottles, drinking glasses, and silverware. It is also possible to spread the virus from the mouth to the genitals, eyes, and other parts of the body.

COLD SORE TRIGGERS WHICH MAY BE PREVENTED:
Not everyones cold sores are triggered by the same thing, but these triggers are the ones which could be avoided to prevent a cold sore attack.

• Stress can wear down your immune system, giving that dormant cold sore a chance to launch a sneak attack. Instead, when you feel stressed, breathe deeply and relax. Here’s a look at some relaxation techniques that can help you take it easy -https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-anxiety-depression/understanding-stress/

• Being tired can make you vulnerable to cold sores. Like stress and illness, fatigue can zap your immune system, making you easy prey for a cold sore outbreak. Getting rest is key. Link to my video to help you get a better night sleep – https://youtu.be/m_ZHgD5rVPU

• If you find that sunlight triggers your cold sores, try using sunscreen lip balm (SPF 15 or more) before going out into bright sunlight. This has been found to prevent some bouts of cold sores in some people. Do not share lip balms with other people if you have cold sores.

• Prevent chapped lips in the cold by using a hydrating lip balm.

COLD SORE TREATMENT:
Aciclovir can be bought over-the-counter (OTC) at pharmacies. This does not kill the virus but prevents the virus from multiplying. It has little effect on existing blisters but may prevent them from becoming worse.

The cream may provide some protection against cold sores caused by sunlight if it is used before exposure. If you use an antiviral cream as soon as symptoms start then the cold sore may not last as long as usual and may be less severe. There is debate as to how well the cream works.

WHEN TO SEE YOUR GP:
You should see your GP if you are unsure of the diagnosis, or if the cold sores are not resolving after a week or so. If you have a poor immune system (you are an immunocompromised person) and develop possible cold sores, you should see your GP. You may need tests to confirm the virus, and/or oral antiviral medicines. For full list please visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cold-sores/

How To Get Rid of Acne | Best Spot Treatment | How To Use Benzoyl Peroxide | Prevent Acne (2018)

How To Get Rid of Acne and Spots on Face | How To Stop Acne For Men and Women | Best Acne Treatment | How To Use Benzoyl Peroxide For Acne | How To Prevent Acne Spots | How To Stop Acne Breakouts | Acne Treatment UK

Acne is a common skin condition that affects myself and most people at some point their lives. In this weeks video I’ve first given a short explanation of why we get acne followed by tips on skincare, treatment and what can make acne worse.

Leave a comment below with how you get on and share any of your own useful tips which other may found helpful too! The most important thing to remember is that acne is treatable and can be improved. So if you have any friends or family who would benefit from this video then feel free to spread the word. Thank you.

TYPE OF ACNE SPOTS:
There are six main types of spot caused by acne,

• Blackheads – small black bumps that develop on the skin; they’re not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces pigmentation.
• Whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and won’t empty when squeezed.
• Papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore.
• Pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus.
• Nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful.
• Cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they’re large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring

WHAT CAN I DO IF I HAVE ACNE:
These self-help techniques may be useful:

• Don’t wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse.
• Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.
• Don’t try to “clean out” blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.
• Completely remove make-up before going to bed.
• If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient.
• Change your pillow case and face towel daily with a fresh laundered one. When not washed frequently, pillowcases and towels can contribute to acne breakouts because of the accumulation of bacteria, dirt, and oils. These come from the environment and from our own skin and hair from daily use. This small tip helped me a lot with my acne.

Although acne can’t be cured, it can be controlled with treatment that are available at pharmacies.

WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE:
Even mild cases of acne can cause distress. If your acne is making you feel very unhappy or you can’t control your spots with over-the-counter medication, see your GP.

Also see your GP if you develop nodules or cysts, as they need to be treated properly to avoid scarring. Try to resist the temptation to pick or squeeze the spots, as this can lead to permanent scarring.

Treatments can take up to three months to work, so don’t expect results overnight.

HOW TO REDUCE SKIN IRRITATION OF BENZOYL PEROXIDE:
If your skin does become irritated then stop using it until the irritation goes. Then try again with a lower strength, or reduce the time it is left on your skin before washing off. To prevent skin irritation, the following may help:

• Most people can tolerate the 5% preparation but if it irritates then try the 2.5% once the irritation settles. If you wish to increase the strength, do it gradually.
• Use a water-based preparation (rather than an alcohol-based one).
• Apply once daily at first and wash off after several hours.
• Gradually increase the length of time left on the skin.
• Aim to put on twice daily when you get used to it.

For more advice speak to your pharmacist.

Chickenpox Treatment | Treatment For Chickenpox | Chickenpox Symptoms | Signs Of Chickenpox | 2018

Chicken Pox Treatment | How To Treat Chickenpox | Symptoms of Chickenpox | Signs Of Chicken Pox

Hey all, this weeks video is about Chickenpox and how to treat it. I think I have had over 300 messages from parents to do a video on this topic so without further ado here it is.

Leave a comment below with how you get on and feel free to share any of your own useful tips which others may found helpful. If you have any friends or family who would benefit from this video then feel free to spread the word.

WHAT IS CHICKENPOX:
Chickenpox is a highly contagious infection, which means it spreads easily from person to person. If you’ve not had chickenpox before and someone in your household gets it, it’s very likely you’ll catch it too.

Chickenpox is a common infection caused by the varicella zoster virus. It causes an itchy, spotty rash. The spots start flat then become raised and blistered, before crusting over. For most people, chickenpox isn’t serious. You’ll probably feel better after a week or so.

You can catch chickenpox at any time of year, but it’s most likely in spring. It’s most common in children under 10, but you can catch it at any age. Once you have had chickenpox, you’re very unlikely to catch it again. About nine out of 10 adults are immune as a result of catching chickenpox when they were a child.

If you’ve had chickenpox, the varicella zoster virus will stay dormant in your body for the rest of your life. At any time later in life, the virus could be reactivated, causing shingles.

SYMPTOMS OF CHICKENPOX:
1. Chickenpox starts with red spots. They can appear anywhere on the body.
2. The spots fill with fluid. The blisters may burst. They might spread or stay in a small area.
3. The spots scab over. More blisters might appear while others scab over.

Other symptoms:
You might get symptoms before or after the spots, including:

• A high temperature above 38C
• Aches and pains, and generally feeling unwell
• Loss of appetite

Chickenpox is very itchy and can make children feel miserable, even if they don’t have many spots. Chickenpox is usually much worse in adults.

If you’re not sure it’s chickenpox you can also visit the following link which includes pictures that will help:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/chickenpox/
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/rashes-babies-and-children/

IMPORTANT INFORMATION & WHEN TO SEEK URGENT MEDICAL ATTENTION:
• If you have chickenpox don’t be around pregnant women, newborn babies and people with a weakened immune system, as it can be dangerous for them.
• Don’t use ibuprofen unless advised to do so by your doctor, as it may cause a serious skin infections called necrotising fasciitis.
• Don’t give aspirin to children under 16.

Speak to a GP if:
• You’re not sure it’s chickenpox.
• The skin around the blisters is red, hot or painful (signs of infection)
your child is dehydrated.
• You’re concerned about your child or they get worse.

Tell the receptionist you think it’s chickenpox before going in. They may recommend a special appointment time if other patients are at risk.

Ask for an urgent GP appointment if:
• You’re an adult and have chickenpox.
• You’re pregnant and haven’t had chickenpox before and have been near someone with it.
• You have a weakened immune system and have been near someone with chickenpox.
• You think your newborn baby has chickenpox.

In these situations, your GP can prescribe medicine to prevent complications. You need to take it within 24 hours of the spots coming out.

If you have any further questions please speak to your pharmacist or other healthcare professionals.
