3 Simple Home Remedies To TREAT URINARY TRACT INFECTION (UTI) In Women

How to treat URINE INFECTION IN WOMEN naturally? LEARN easy home remedies for curing Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

Urine infections in women is a common problem. When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a bladder infection (cystitis) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as kidney infection (pyelonephritis) . The urinary tract consists of kidneys, ureters- connecting kidneys with the bladder, bladder and the urethra. An infection of any of these parts is called a urinary tract infection(UTI) and can be caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses. As stated earlier urinary tract infection(UTI) in women is quite common the urethra in women is much shorter than in men. Both men and women gets urinary tract infections(UTI) and occasionally it’s severe with men.

Causes of urinary tract infection(UTI Infection):

Urinary infections can happen due to blockages which make it difficult to empty the bladder. It could be due to kidney stones, enlarged prostate gland or cancers. Improper personal hygiene and bathroom hygiene can lead to UTIs. Use of spermicides or condoms can also lead to irritation of the skin and can increase the risk of a UTI. Use of diaphragms can decrease emptying of bladder and lead to an urinary tract infection. Diabetics have an increased risk of contracting urinary tract infections.

Urinary infections are the main reason why women should wipe from front to back after using the bathroom. The reason behind this is that the urethra is located close to the anus and bacteria such as E.coli, which is present in the large intestine, can escape from the anus and enter the urethra. From here, they can reach the bladder, causing bladder infection. The infection should be treated as soon as possible otherwise there is a possibility of the kidneys getting infected. Post menopause, there are changes in the normal bacteria which reside in the vagina. This can increase the incidence chances of urinary tract infections(UTIs). UTIs can also happen due to use of a catheter (a tube inserted into the bladder to allow draining urine into a bag when someone cannot urinate normally) which makes it easy for bacteria to enter the bladder.

Urinary Tract Infection(UTI) or Bladder Infection Symptoms:

• Burning sensation during urination
• Increased frequency of urination
• Blood in the urine
• Cloudy urine
• Change in colour of urine
• Strong odour to urine
• Pelvic pain (women)
• Rectal pain (men)
More serious urinary tract infections are those involving kidneys. They are bacteria can enter bloodstream from kidneys and circulate throughout the body causing septic shock and death. Pain in back and sides, chills, fever, nausea and vomiting are symptoms of upper urinary tract infection.

Urinary Tract Infection(UTI) Treatment: You can take UTI medication or home remedies for UTI. These natural UTI remedies are quite effective and they do not have any side effects. Natural products help the bodies’ immunity to fight the infection. It also kills the bacteria and helps to flush out the toxins from the body as they are natural diuretics. Apart from using bladder infection home remedies, you must ensure cleanliness to keep UTI infection away. So let’s review urine infection home remedies:

1. Water for Urinary Tract Infection:-
Bring water to a boil and add the parsley if you are using fresh-which is preferable in my opinion. Reduce the heat so it simmers steadily and let the leaves infuse the water like this for 6-10 minutes. Strain the leaves out and drink the water hot. If it’s a hot summer day, pop it in the fridge for refreshing parsley “iced tea.” This is a useful urine infection home remedy.

2. Celery Seeds For Urinary Tract Infection:-
Add a tea spoon of celery seeds/ajwain to a glass of water and boil this for 10 minutes. Cool this down and drink it. This home remedy helps you to get rid of pain and discomfort caused due UTI.

3. Baking Soda for Urinary Tract Infection:-
Add one teaspoon of baking soda in about 1 glass of water (250ml). Stir well and drink first thing in the morning. It reduces the acidic nature of urine and eases urinating. (Do not have it for more than one week). This a very good urine infection remedy.

What is a Tapeworm Infection? (Symptoms, Causes, Treatment, Prevention)

What is a Tapeworm Infection? (Symptoms, Causes, Treatment, Prevention) –

Presented by

A tapeworm infection is also known as taeniasis. It’s caused by a parasite that lives inside of a person’s intestine. These worms are flat and characterized by their segmented body. It can cause an infection which can lead to an intestinal blockage.

What are the Symptoms of Tapeworm Infection? Some people will never experience any symptoms. However, most will see tapeworm eggs or segments of worms in their stool. It’s usually around two to three months before the infection begins. Symptoms include hunger, losing weight, and problems with the digestive system. As well as vomiting and abdominal pain. Most will feel uncomfortable around their anal area when passing the tapeworms. These parasites can rob the body of important nutrients. Which causes individuals to lack important vitamins and minerals.

What are the Causes of a Tapeworm Infection? Tapeworm infection occurs when the eggs or larvae of tapeworm are ingested. They are microscopic and impossible to be seen by the naked eye. People usually ingest them after coming into contact with human or animal feces. Often, it is from eating food or drinking water which is contaminated. Tapeworm infection also commonly spreads through contaminated meat. Once they reach the intestine, they hatch into larvae. Next, it travels out of the intestine and into tissues, such as the muscles. Animals which have ingested them may have tapeworm larvae in their meat. If this meat is under-cooked or raw when consumed, the larvae will be ingested.

How is Tapeworm Infection Treated? Before treatment, a physician will want to take a blood test and a stool sample. Prescriptions are usually prescribed, such as albendazole and praziquantel. Which are used to rid the body of the parasites and the eggs. Tapeworms will exit the body through bowel movements. It may be several weeks before they are completely gone from a person’s body. If it’s not treated in a timely manner, it will be necessary for surgery.

How is Tapeworm Infection Prevented? Consume tap water or water that has been treated correctly and is safe to drink. If in doubt, choose bottled water. Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly in safe water, if eating them raw. If dirt appears to be ingrained in the skin, it is safer to peel them first. Meat should be cooked at temperatures of at least 125F to kill bacteria. It is also possible to kill eggs and larvae by freezing meat. Meat should be frozen for at least 12 hours, and fish for at least 24 hours. Avoid eating raw or under-cooked fish, pork or beef. Finally, have your dog treated promptly if you notice tapeworms in their stools. Always wash hands thoroughly after coming into contact with their feces.

Conjunctivitis, pink eye, virus or bacteria, eye infection – A State of Sight #35

Isaac Porter, MD explains conjunctivitis (pink eye) in this episode of A State of Sight. The conjunctiva is the thin layer of tissue that covers the eye. When this layer becomes infected or inflamed, it can become very red and irritated with a conjunctivitis.

Conjunctivitis can be caused by a virus or by bacteria. Viral conjunctivitis is the most common type, and is usually caused by the same type of virus that can cause a common cold, adenovirus. This usually causes the eye to be red, tearing, and itchy. Unfortunately, there is no direct treatment for viral conjunctivitis with medications or eye drops, and the body must clear the infection itself, usually over a week. Bacterial conjunctivitis can have even more redness and irritation, with a thicker discharge from the eye. If the infection is caused by bacteria, antibiotic drops can be used to clear the conjunctivitis more quickly.

Conjunctivitis is very contagious, so it is important to be careful not to spread the infection from one eye to the other, or to others. If you have conjunctivitis, avoid touching or rubbing your eyes or face, wash your hands frequently, avoid contact with others, and throw away tissues as soon as you use them.

If you have any other questions about conjunctivitis or pink eye, please post them below!

Fungal infections of skin
Superficial fungal infections of skin are in the rise in India and become somewhat of an epidemic. It is important to understand the causes of fungal infection, precautions to be taken and effective treatment options. They are increasingly becoming a public health hazard with OPD’s being flooded with new cases of these fungal infections. Even though there are a variety of antifungals in the market, we are quickly going to run out of effective options if we do not control these infections properly.

There are many reasons for the sudden increase:

Urbanization, Over crowding, increased humidity, Long commute, Use of steroid creams,Non compliance to treatment leading to resistant strains
The commonly seen fungal infections of skin are caused by dermatophytes. These fungi are skin loving and break the top layer of skin to derive nutrition for survival. They occur in areas where there is water logging or sweat logging such as body folds in the groin area, armpit, in buttock area and under the breast in women.

They appear as round, lesions with scaling. They are itchy and cause significant discomfort. They may become red and even causes burning sensation and irritation.

What should you do?

Consult a qualified health care professional who can make the correct diagnosis and administer proper treatment. Do not take medicines from a chemist. We get patients who go to the chemist/ pharmacist and tell them they have itching in the groin and the chemist hands over the medication without even looking at the lesion or knowing the history of pat medication. This is dangerous. Pharmacist study about the drug, the molecule and are experts at dispensing the correct medication. They are not equipped to make a diagnosis and prescribe medication.

You will have to take oral antifungals for a period of 3 weeks to 3 months depending on severity and past treatment. Whenever you visit a doctor for recurrent infections, make sure you take all you old prescriptions along so the doctor has an idea of what all medications you have taken and how you have responded.

Please understand that you have to complete the course of antifungals as suggested by the treating doctor. You might notice improvement within a week of treatment. Na d because some of these medications are expensive, people tend to discontinue it mid-way. This should absolutely not be done. The fungus becomes inactive but is not completely cleared from your skin. So, until it completely clears, there is a high chance of it coming back.

So please please remember that is very very important to complete the course.

I do not want to name any brand of antifungal creams as these fungal infections need to be treated by health professionals and you must visit a doctor. It is not something that you can treat at home.

Important things to remember if you have fungal infection:

· Take bath daily: twice a day if possible

· Use a shower gel for bathing. If you use soap, use a small soap that can be discarded weekly.

· Dry yourself with a thin cotton towel. Towels need to be washed and ironed everyday

· Iron your undergarments, belt area of trousers before wearing

· Wear loose cotton clothing

· If you work out in the gym, make sure your clothes are sweat absorbent. Take a bath as soon as you finish your exercise and wash the attire daily.

· All our clothes have to be washed separately and sun dried

· Apply creams on the lesions and 2 cm area beyond the margin

· Keep nails short

· Do not scratch the lesion. If you inadvertently scratch, wash your hands immediately.
