The Ebola virus was first reported from the African country, Sudan. This virus infection has become one of the most dreaded diseases in the world of late. The destructive potential of this virus is high with almost 80% of the victims reported dead. The virus has the potential to infect millions of people across the world if proper screening measures are not adopted by the countries of the globe.

Know About Ebola

Ebola virus diseases were earlier known as Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever and are caused by the virus belonging to Filoviridae family. This is a disease known to spread from animals to humans. The RNA virus infects the wild animals such as gorillas, monkeys, chimpanzees and fruit bats and can also spread to humans. According to World Health Organization, this disease is transmitted through direct contact with the body fluids such as blood, secretions and organs of an infected animal or person. Migratory populations are most likely to get the infection and they may transmit the Ebola virus.

Early Symptoms

The early symptoms may appear one week after the virus infects your body. The symptoms include headache, fever, rashes, nausea, stomach pain, vomiting, body ache, cough, etc. It is difficult to identify the disease in the early stages as the early symptoms are similar to the symptoms of other diseases. The diagnosis is usually made on the basis of tests for antibodies against viral DNA and Ebola.

Later Symptoms

Within a few days of the patient expressing the early symptoms, the later symptoms appear. Later symptoms include: impaired liver and kidney functions, redness of the eye due to internal and external bleeding, bloody vomit and bloody diarrhea, etc. The patient may experience cardiovascular collapse and finally death.

Who Is At Risk?

The persons with high risk of Ebola infection are family members of the infected persons and the health workers who is in close contact with infected individuals and mourners of the deceased person who have direct contact with the body. People who are handling the meat of the infected animals are also at the risk of exposure to the virus.

The Countries Affected By the Virus

The present Ebola virus outbreak is the largest outbreak reported and is mainly limited to West Africa. The African countries like Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Libya has reported more than 1600 cases of Ebola till August 2014. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises to avoid all “nonessential” travel to these West African countries.

How to get rid out of cold. Normally it starts with running nose and If I take citrazin, it stops but the sputum develops in the chest and clogging, resulting in cough. If I don't take any medicines, it stops with only running nose after few days. So, it is always good not to take medicine?

This is very common to have dry cough after fever esp after taking a strong anti pyretic like dolo. This may take some time. If it's unbearable and affecting your daily routine you can take medicine after consulting a doctor. It will decrease the severity. Along with medication keep doing gargles with saline water. Avoid taking fried and highly spicy food. Drink Luke warm water.

Do Otrivin nasal spray 3 times a day and then do steam inhalation after 10 minutes of nasal spray. Do not use otrivin for more than 3 days try taking steam inhalation for 3 times a day. To know how to take steam, please read instructions below to know - how to take steam inhalation for best results. If problem is not solved in 2-3 days, you may need additional medicines. Techniques to steam 1) Boil a pot of water. 2) Pour water into a large flat pan or bowl. If you use a casserole, water will remain warm for longer duration. 3) Place your head over the bowl at a distance of 1 feet. 4) Cover your head and bowl with a large towel (like a tent), take long breath through your nose and breath out through mouth. Take a break every 1-2 minutes until you feel relatively cooler. Do it for 10 minute twice or thrice a day. If you feel that the treatment is getting too much for you, raise the towel so that fresh air is brought into the area and breathe through your mouth a couple of times and then resume Take care - Take all precautions while dealing with hot water. Also, keep children away and wan others that you are dealing with boiling hot water. Other way is - by an Electric steamer available in market and take steam through it. It is more convenient.

Prevention and Treatment for Cough and Cold Due to Weather Change

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
Prevention and Treatment for Cough and Cold Due to Weather Change

One thing that a weather change brings about is lung infections - most commonly cough and cold. Most people dread the change of seasons from one temperature to another because of the fear of how their body will react to the weather change. Be it extreme hot or cold, most people end up with a cough and cold. The more affected age groups again are the children and the elderly. However, all it takes to prevent this is to plan a little so that the body can get used to the change and not react with a cough or cold.

Prevention: There are few things that can be done which can help avoid catching cold.

  1. Avoid sudden exposure to cold, from a heated room to the cold outdoors, especially in the evening and morning. Those who are used to a morning and evening walk may have to change the routine.
  2. Avoid cold food items such as cool drinks, milk shakes and ice-creams.
  3. Having a warm bath, early morning and late evening is advisable.
  4. Avoid foods such as sour stuffs, pickles and fried foods.
  5. Eat small, frequent meals that are prepared fresh are nutritious and of moderate temperature.
  6. If there are infected people in your neighborhood, avoid being in close contact with them as you might get infected as well.
  7. Wash your hands enough to keep them free of germs
  8. As much as cold weather does not make you thirsty, push enough fluids so that your body stays hydrated. If water is not appealing enough, drink warm water or tea or lime.
  9. Ensure the house, especially kitchen and bathroom are clean and disinfected.
  10. Avoid exposure to dust and pollen as they carry lot of germs.
  11. Avoid staying in a poorly ventilated room, enough circulation ensures germs are not concentrated in one room
  12. Timely vaccination against flu

Treatment: Despite these measures, once the cough and cold has set in, the following are some easy remedies:

  1. Steam inhalation, preferably with eucalyptus oil added to it.
  2. Having warm soup with ginger and garlic added to it to soothe the throat
  3. Ginger and other spices like cardamom and cinnamon can also be added to tea.
  4. Lemon and honey can be added to a glass of warm water. This will soothe the throat and help fight cold.
  5. Chewing Tulsi leaves can be beneficial
  6. Yoga exercises such as Pranayama and Jalneti can be done to cleanse the nasal cavity, prevent sinus congestion, and clear mucus

HEADACH As of now for headache you can take tablet Paracetamol. But we will have to make a diagnosis to get to the cause of it which can be either due to frontal sinusitis or due to migrane or due to refractive error of the eyes or due to other causes for which we have to investigate. FEVER As of now take one tablet of paracetamol and take physical rest with adequate water and food intake. If there are any associated symptoms feel free to contact us
