Diseases in Children

Staph symptoms in children

Staph symptoms in children bacteria such as staphylococci, recently acquired a high prevalence in the human environment.They are populated on the mucous membranes, both people and animals, and can cause a variety of serious diseases.It is not there, perhaps, not a single person on the planet who do not have, at least once, to be treated for diseases caused by staphylococci.Although, in fact, pose a threat to the health of the organisms themselves are not bacteria, but those enzymes and toxins that they take in their surroundings, then you have our mucosal tissues of different organs.

infection is transmitted through the air, so it exposed representatives of any age, class and wealth.Also, fat is a breeding ground for staphylococcus, so you need to be careful with the butter cream, canned food and so on. N. The process of inflammation that is triggered the emergence of Staphylococcus aureus, can begin in any organ, even in the joints, but the first - it is the skin, ENTorgans, bronchi, lungs, stomach and intestines.Complicatio

ns can strike at the heart valves, the nervous system and other organs caused by staphylococcal meningitis or pneumonia, as well as there is a strong toxication the body.

Rhode bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus has about 27 species.And more than half of them can colonize in the human body.But only three of the whole army cause disease:

• saprophytic (Staphylococcus saprophyticus);

• Epidermal (Staphylococcus epidermidis);

• Golden (Staphylococcus aureus).

most of them harmless - a saprophytic Staphylococcus.He is not afraid of children.Causes of trouble more often in women, as the main place of its habitat is located in the genital area.

in any location, but most often in the skin, can be found Staphylococcus epidermidis.It poses a risk only for people with severely weakened immune system, as in a healthy person, and even the immune system of the child to cope with this kind of bacteria on their own.

But the real danger and the greatest number of difficulties for physicians is Staphylococcus aureus.The fact is that by producing eksfoliatin, and is the strongest poison for us, it causes toxic shock syndrome, poisoning, staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (syndrome of "scalded babies").This pathogen infection of the musculoskeletal system, and in 75% of cases of arthritis in adolescents we have to Staphylococcus aureus.And also, as a result of inflammation of ear and sinus cavities it penetrates into the central nervous system, causing inflammation of intracranial.

how to recognize

Syndrome "scalded babies" in the newborn caused by staphylococcus, manifested in the skin blisters large and red.Vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, too, is characterized in contact with staphylococcal food poisoning symptoms.Upon infection by airborne droplets - a bad cold with swelling of the nose and cough.

In any case, state the fact it displays staph only via specialist.


Nowadays diagnose staph is not difficult for bacteriological crops in many laboratories and clinics.Pap tests and take the place of localization issues, respectively.Staphylococcus is determined in the blood and feces, as well as in sputum and breast milk of the mother.Pregnant women are limited smears from the nose and throat.

How to treat staphylococci

must say that there is no need identified staphylococci treated if their number is negligible, and diagnose in parallel with other causes of inflammation.In small quantities, they are opportunistic flora, and in some cases normal.Only if it is "staph infection", and not just the bacteria in your body, you need to start treatment.

choice of drug is based on those same bacteriological crops, which usually indicates the sensitivity of a particular microbe revealed to different antibiotics and bacteriophages (acting selectively only this bacterium).

Ulcers are usually removed surgically, followed by disinfection of the cavity with special preparations.

In respect of any staphylococcus is very difficult to choose a method of treatment, becausethey are able to very quickly develop resistance to many antibiotics.Treatment must necessarily be combined.And keep in mind that if you take or give your child an antibiotic, it is necessary to pass the course completely order 10 or even 14 days.Otherwise, it will not killed staphylococci that have developed resistance to the antibiotic, and will grow even stronger colony.

How not to get sick

First of all, it is not a cliché, but the most effective method of prevention is orderly, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a favorable microclimate in the house, where you spend half your life (at least in a dream).

You must be aired frequently, to maintain the purity and humidity.Teach a child (and himself set the example) to wash hands with soap and water at every opportunity, twice a day to take a shower, and better contrast, take care of personal hygiene.

is also very important to monitor the health of the mucous tissue, skin, teeth, time to disinfect and eliminate all wounds, ulcers and tooth decay, which can serve as a good place of settlement and reproduction of staphylococci.
