Bacterial Infection Under Fingernail

My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Fish

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.

DermTV The Medical Effects of Nail Biting DermTV Epi 374

Hello, I'm Neal Schultz. pause And welcome to DermTV. Google “Nail Biters Anonymous� and you'llget a few 100,000 hits. But when I was a kid, there was no Nail BitersAnonymous. If there was, I would have stood up and said,“My name is Neal. I bite my nails.� I confess, I, the fearlessleader of DermTV,

was a nail biter, but happily I have corrected my wayward habit! And now knowing what I do about the medical affects of nail biting,I'm very happy I did. Seriously… nail biting isn't just a badhabit with visually ugly consequences. It's actually the cause of many infections of the skin aroundthe nails and even skin cancer. The way nail biting promotes infections ofthe skin

around and even under the nails is by causingsmall scratches or breaks in the upper, protective layer ofskin… That layer, the epidermis in an unbroken state prevents germs from invading the skin and causing infections… but bitinginduced breaks, even tiny ones that don't bleed and thatyou don't see, they allow whatever germs are on your skin or in your mouth to invade into the top twolayers of the skin

causing different types of infections. For example, you can get warts, and easilyspread them from finger to finger through nail biting. And then you'll need to get them surgicallyremoved. Or, the herpes virus, which many people carryharmlessly in their saliva, with the help of nail biting, can cause cold sores on your finger tips, which are painful and recurring.

These need to be treated by oral antiviralpills. If you let bacteria like staph and strep inthrough nail biting, they can cause acute painful red swellingof the skin that needs to be lanced or drained to removethe pus and also needs to be treated with antibiotics. Sorry, but it gets worse! Back to warts. When they spread under thefinger nail, they can become cancerous and cause squamouscell carcinoma,

which requires surgical removal and often causes disfiguring scarring of thefinger nail and tip. Now clearly, many of you have bitten yournails and what I just mentioned hasn't occurred.But it can and does. So if you're a nail biter, make one of your new year resolutions to stop. Of course, like any habit, nail biting isa tough one to break. But I'll tell you what worked for me,
