  • Answer: Antibiotics but there are different ones for different areas and diseases.
  • Answer: hydrocortisone, or pyetroleum jell
  • Answer: By Taking a medicine from the doctor.
  • Answer: It depends where you want to prevent an infection. If it is your lips, use chapstick(especially in the winter) and special antibiotics that prevent infection around your lips. If it is your ears, use Hydrogen Peroxide (Walgreens) and Rubbing Alcohol to prevent any bacteria from causing an infection. You must be especially careful if you have newly pierced ears. An ear infection may cause the skin to grow over the earring, making it attached to the ear. An ear infection can also cause your hole for your earrings to close up.
  • Answer: The vaccine is made of weakened virus particles. This causes your body to produce interferon to fight an infection. :-)
  • Answer: Phagocytes are the white blood cells that protect the body by ingesting harmful foreign particles such as bacteria and dead cells. Also they are essential for fighting infections and for subsequent immunity.
    Phagocytes are crucial in fighting infections, as well as in maintaining healthy tissues by removing dead and dying cells that have reached the end of their lifespan.
    During an infection, chemical signals attract phagocytes to places where the pathogen has invaded the body. These chemicals may come from bacteria or from other phagocytes already present.

    Hope this will help!
  • Answer: Vaccines do not prevent infection. Vaccines prepare the immune system to fight infection by allowing the immune system to produce antibodies to a specific invading organism, kill it, and remember it in the future. In vaccines, this organism is often weakened or dead. If the invading organism is found by the immune system in the future following immunization, the immune system remembers it and produces the specific antibodies needed to kill it quickly.
  • Answer:

    Maintaing proper oral hygiene, just as brushing your teeth, gargling, and flossing, help to maintain a balance of the bacteria in your mouth. It can help to prevent infection of the teeth or gums. It definitely prevents cavities to start with, and cavities can lead to an abscessed tooth.

    There are many dentists who say that maintaining proper oral hygiene also effects many other systems of the body, such as preventing heart disease, helping for a healthy pregnancy, any many other whole-body issues.
  • Answer: Definition: Latent (lā′tənt), adj.
    A nonactive virus which is in a dormant state within a cell.

    Definition: Infection (infek´shn), n.
    An invasion of the tissues of the body by disease-producing microorganisms and the reaction of these tissues to the microorganisms and/or their toxins.

    It is almost impossible to prevent something that is unable to be detected. However, in the case of a virus, it is possible to instill a few safety measures such as using antibiotics when entering/exiting a potentially infected zone, carrying, hand sanitizers, drinking plenty of fluids, taking vitamin C.

    Because the virus is inactive, there will be no symptoms. A viroid is similar to a prion and can not be destroyed. Once the virus enters into the host cell, it will continue to multiply. All other microorganisms can be fought off with daily supplements such as everyday essential fatty acids (EFA[s]) and water. At best, keep the immune system prepared to ward off all infections of any kind; stay hydrated and well rested.
  • Answer: Keep hydrated, wash your hands often (at least thrice per day, since you should definitely wash before meals), eat healthily, and never touch your face, since your dirty hands might put germs into your eyes, nose, mouth, or ears. Also, talk with your health care provider about options for immunization.
  • Answer: WASH YOUR HANDS before and after any contact with body fluids! pee poo spit blood anything. simple soap and water and always dry properly
  • Answer: Joseph Lister (1827-1912) made antiseptic practices standard in operating rooms.
  • Answer: Honey has been used since time immemorial. Joseph Lister and Ignaz Semmelweis were two of the most prominent microbiologist who did some of the earliest studies on the cause of infection and how to disinfect.
  • Answer: Vaccines inject a weak amount of the pathogen that causes the infection into you. This is not enough to harm you. This causes your bodies lymphocyte white blood cells to produce antibodies that lock onto antigens on the pathogen, marking then out for your phagocyte white blood cells to destroy them.
    This means that next time you get infected with the pathogen, your body recognises it quicker so it can produce the antibodies much faster and destroy the pathogen before you express any symptoms.
