My vaginal discharge smells like fish. I'm assuming this couldn't possibly bedue to a messy fish and chips dinner. No, way more intimate than someone constantlyspilling dinner in my lap. Then the most likely cause is due to an infection. I don't think I have a social disease. Well,I hope I don't have a sexual disease. If you have bacterial vaginosis caused bythe overgrowth of bacteria naturally down there, you can end up with a fishy odor. How could I have developed thaté
So much douching to remove any odor that youstripped away healthy bacteria, leaving the bad ones a fertile playground. If you said that about my digestive tract,the solution would be probiotics. If you have that type of discharge, you cantreat it by eating yogurt and hoping that circulates through your system to the vagina.Or you can take the direct route and put yogurt up there. That's as embarrassing to admit as a coloncleanse. You know that it is bacterial overgrowth ifit is worse after you have sex or if you're
suffering a UTI too. I don't see how a UTI could cause this. If you're wiping back to front, the poopbacteria that get into the urinary tract and cause a UTI will cause vaginosis too. What's a reason that doesn't have to dowith a playground being between two sewersé A fishy odor accompanied by a green dischargemeans you have trichomoniasis. It is sometimes called just trich, pronounced trick. *That I've heard of, but I don't knowanything about it.
Trichomoniasis is a protozoan infection, andit causes a sour or fishy smell. Then trich is a sexual disease. Yes, and they can cure it with antibiotics. What else could it beé If it smells like rotted meat down there,you may have forgotten a tampon. That's what can cause toxic shock syndrome. Yes, and rotted fish smells means you havethe vaginosis or severe yeast infection, plus the bacteria that can cause toxic shock syndrome.
Anything on that list necessitates gettingto a , and after which, only using ultrathick maxi pads. If the vaginal discharge smells bad and lookslike curds, you have a yeast infection. It is also more likely if the itching is bad,skin is red and it hurts when you pee or have sex. At least that I can treat with stuff fromthe store. And any other cause requires talking to a, yogurt or not.
Immune System part 1 Crash Course AP 45
You may not know it, but your body is engagedin a neverending battle. You are literally covered in staph and strepand e coli, and all sorts of dubious characters that are intent on using you, and your body'smany resources, to feed themselves, find shelter, and reproduce as much as they want. And, hey, we all gotta make a living. Butit is not your job to give these guys a free lunch. So your body has developed a threepart policytoward these shady customers, and its enforcement is handled by your immune system. The immune system is different from all theother systems we've talked about this year
in that it's not a specific, tissueorgansystemkind of system. Instead, it involves a whole bunch ofdifferent tissue groups, organ systems, and specializedbutwidelydistributed defense cells. Together, this league of extraordinary substancesjoins forces to perform all of the defense functions your body depends on to keep youalive in an incredibly germy world. And the first line of defense in this neverending battleéThat's your innate, or nonspecific, defense system. Like your average frontline soldier, it'sprepared to immediately engage with anyone suspicious, and it mostly includes stuff wewere born with, like the external barricades
of your skin and mucous membranes, and internaldefenses like phagocytes, antimicrobial proteins, and other attack cells. But some enemies must be fought with specialforces. And here, your body can deploy your adaptive, or specific defense system, whichis more like your Seal Team Six. It takes more time to call in, but it'sspecially designed to go after specific targets. And it keeps files on those bad guys so itknows how to handle them next time around. But today we're going to focus on your innatesystem, and look at how it uses an arsenal of physical and chemical barriers, killercells, and even fever, to keep you healthy.
Proving that sometimes, the symptoms we associatewith illness are actually the signs that we're healing. Just because something is simple doesn'tmean that it can't be elegant. I mean, your body is capable of some incredibly sophisticated things, including defending itself from infection. But occasionally there's something to besaid for brute force. And a lot of your innate immune system'sfunctions aren't exactly subtle. For example, your body's very first line of defense isa simple physical barrier. And it works! Like a wall around a fortress, your skin doesa fantastic job of keeping out all manner
of malevolent microorganisms. As long as that tough, keratinized epithelialmembrane doesn't get torn open or busted up too much, you could probably, like, makesnowballs out of raw sewage and still be alright. Although.no. No. Your many mucous membranes also provide ahandy physical barrier. You'll remember that they line any cavity that opens up intothe germy outside world, including the respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive tracts. Not only do your skin and mucosasupply simple physical protection,
they also pack some serious chemical weaponry. Eat some questionable leftovers for lunchéDon't worry, your stomach is literally filled with acid, so you probably are covered. Walk facefirst into your coworker's nastysneeze cloudé No worries, your nasal passages can whip up a tissuebox worth of sticky mucusto help trap viruses before they enter your lungs. You've also got bacteriafighting enzymesin your saliva and lacrimal eye fluid, and peptides called defensins in your skin andmembranes that help keep bacteria and fungi from setting up shop around inflamed or scrapedskin.
Is it Bad if Snot is Yellow
Is it bad if snot is yellowé Snot is usually white. It is only going tochange colors if something else has changed. I'm wondering what might be wrong. Assuming you did not accidentally inhale popcornbutter powder and turn your lungs yellow, you've got an infection. I thought that was if the snot was green. It'll be yellow before it is green. Thecolor shift is the start of an infection. I'm sick of this.
You're sick with something. The color ofsnot doesn't change unless there is a bacterial infection. As long as this does not go viral. You could have a cold virus or allergies,but the snot is warm wet environment in which bacteria can thrive, and then it changes colors. Talk about a pain in the butt. How do I getrid of ité A pain in the forehead or nasal passages impliesa sinus infection. A pain in the mouth could mean you have a dental carry, but that'srare to affect the nose.
How do I treat a sinus infectioné Getting rid of the snot can get rid of theinfection. Whether you use antihistamines to stop the mucus production or antibioticsto kill the bacteria is your choice. Or I could use a neti pot. Those things hardly get sterilized, afterpeople put their snot filled noses on it. You could get someone else's germs or reinfectwith your own, and then there are the amoeba I've never heard of amoeba.
Using untreated water, AKA natural springwater, has caused some people to get amoeba inhaled from the steam into their brains,killing them. That's like the guy getting out of ebolaquarantine saying quot;oh, thank god it is just malariaquot;. I won't know which is worse. Use one of those disposable spray bottleswith saline water instead of a neti pot, with or without additional medication.
