Q. Yeast infection in bloodstream

How to get rid of yeast infection systemically.
Athere are several treatments and medications against systemic fungal infections, yeasts included. but in order to get treated you have to go through a proper diagnosis and a Dr. should check what kind of fungus you are having and prescribe the medication that fits it. me throwing all sort of medication names won't give you anything. this has to be checked out with a blood test and a culture.

Q. Is this an infection or pregnancy?

I am worried with the white odorless mucus discharge. My hubby and I are also trying for baby. I have browsed the web and found that this could be possible infection also. Is this an infection or pregnancy?
A1It’s a cervical discharge and mucus secreted may be majorly a sign of pregnancy. I too had the same symptom but was tested positive for pregnancy. At times it may be a normal vaginal discharge. Generally it will be a yeast infection. Just check for your body temperature changes as it indicates good for you. Your mucus will be like raw egg white, the more thick more chances for positive. Keep a check on these factors. I shall suggest you to visit the doctor to confirm the same instead of making your own conclusions.
A2how about taking a pregnancy test first,then work from there.

Q. What are the symptoms of salmonella infection?

A1Dehydration is the principal clinical concern. The incubation period – the time between ingestion of Salmonella bacteria and the onset of illness – varies from six to 72 hours.Salmonella can cause three different kinds of illness: gastroenteritis, typhoid fever, and bacteremia.Symptoms of Salmonella gastroenteritis include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, fever, nausea, and/or vomiting.In mild cases diarrhea may be non-bloody, occur several times per day, and not be very voluminous; in severe cases it may be frequent, bloody and/or mucoid, and of high volume. Fever generally occurs in the 100°F to 102°F (38°C to 39°C) range. Vomiting is less common than diarrhea. Headaches, myalgias (muscle pain), and arthralgias (joint pain) are often reported as well.Whereas the diarrhea typically lasts 24 to 72 hours, patients often report fatigue and other nonspecific symptoms lasting 7 days or longer. For the full article:
A2Salmonella infection can cause fever, sometimes high fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The hallmark of Salmonella infection is bloody diahrrea, and in any case of fever, abdominal pain and bloody stools it is very important to get examined and get stool sample testing for the bacteria.

Q. How Do You Become Infected With Hepatitis C?

Can I get hepatitis C from touching someone with hepatitis?
A1The only way of being infected with hepatitis C virus is by blood to blood connection, for example by an infected needle, blood transfusion, mother to baby transfer during labour or sexual transmission.
A2Hepatitis C is a blood-borne infectious disease that is caused by Hepatitis C virus (HCV), infecting the liver.

Q. sinus infection and Polups and I can't breath through my nose. What can I do?

A1I have used the expresso machine for the steam only and run that through a glass with some vics in it. Helped but the polups are so large now its hard to get any thing through.
A2You could also try to rub a little bit of vicks on your chest, throat, and a very small amount on you upper lip.
A3I've been having a chronic sinus infection since 4th grade- the best way to home care is Drink plenty of tea and inhale steam two to four times per day by leaning over a bowl of hot water (not while the water is on the stove:)). those will drain fluid from the tissues in your sinuses. and to drain the mucos -there is a Chinese therapy that helped me in particular , it's a kind of a metal pen that they insert in to it a burning herbal material and they pass it over the skin for a few times. very helpful. you can buy it in stores that sell Chinese ointments and ask them how to use it.

Q. How bad can a infection get in your body? Like if you react to something like condoms and dont get it treated.

I had a reaction a year ago to 3 condoms that were used and I didnt get it treated,not everything is weird in my area. Like, im all papery down there and stuff like that. And please dont say go to the doctor because that doesnt help me at the moment, because right now, thats impossible to do and please dont ask why. Thank you.
Awhat you describes sounds like you had an allergic reaction to latex. an infection might be caused afterwards- if the skin ruptured. because i can't look (and please refrain adding or sending a picture- my wife can understand it the wrong way :) ) i can't really tell you if it looked you see puss? in not- get a moisturizer and use frequently. if there is an infection- there are antibiotic creams but they need a Dr. prescription if i'm not mistaken.

Q. What is it CMV during pregnancy? can i infect with that?

ACMV is a virus. What you refer to is infection with CMV, either the initial infection, or re-activation of latent (dormant) virus that resides in the mother's body during pregnancy.

The dangers are that CMV will infect the fetus, which may cause malformations, particularly growth restriction and hearing impairment.
