No matter how much information there is available about AIDS and HIV, the thought of it makes a person shudder. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV is the virus responsible for AIDS or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. This virus attacks the immune system and over time leaves the body defenseless against other infections and types of cancer. Till date, there is no cure for HIV or AIDS. However, what we do know is how the disease can be transmitted from one person to another. Knowing this enables us to control the transmission of the disease.
Unlike other viruses, HIV cannot be transmitted through air, water etc. This virus can only be transmitted through:
- Blood: Receiving blood transfusions from an HIV positive person is sure to put you at risk of suffering from the disease as well. For this reason, it is essential to only take blood from registered blood banks that run HIV screening tests. This holds true for organ and tissue transplants as well. Being stuck with an HIV infected needle can also put you at risk of coming in contact the virus. In some cases, direct contact between broken skin, wounds and mucous membranes can also lead to the transferring of HIV cells from one person to another. HIV does not spread through saliva, however, if while kissing, both partners suffer from bleeding gums and one partner is HIV positive, there is a risk of the transference of HIV from one person to the other.
- Bodily fluids such as semen and vaginal fluids: The only way to prevent the transmission of the HIV virus from one partner to another while having intercourse is by using a condom. This creates a barrier between the bodily fluids of both partners and keeps them safe. A condom is needed even if the couple is engaging in anal sex. In fact when comparing anal and vaginal intercourse; anal sex puts HIV negative partners at a higher risk of getting in contact the virus than vaginal sex. Theoretically, this virus can be transmitted even through oral sex is a HIV positive man ejaculates into the woman's mouth. However, this is a rare occurrence.
- From a mother to an unborn child: A HIV positive mother can transmit the virus to her child when pregnant, at birth or while breastfeeding. However, if the mother follows HIV treatment, the chances of her passing on this virus to her child are significantly lowered.
The above are the only three ways HIV can be transferred from one person to another. HIV cannot be transmitted by sharing utensils, drinking the same water, through mosquito bites or by shaking hands etc. Thus, there is no reason to ostracize an HIV infected person.
Can a hepatitis B woman become pregnant? If yes what precautions she should take not to transmit the disease to child.

Bacterial vaginosis is a condition which is characterized by an infection in the vagina. The vagina consists of both good and bad bacteria which remain in a state of balance. Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the balance of bacteria in the vagina gets disrupted. The count of bad bacteria in the vagina tends to increase as compared to the count of good bacteria.
It occurs when the balance of bacteria in the vagina is upset. There are certain factors that may make you prone to this disorder; some of them are:
Douching: Douching is a process of cleaning the vagina with water or cleansing agents. This process leads to an imbalance in the amount of good and bad bacteria in the vagina.
Multiple Sex Partners: Women who have multiple sex partners are at an increased risk of getting affected by bacterial vaginosis.
Lack of Good Bacteria in the Vagina.
The usual symptom of this disorder is a foul smelling vaginal discharge. The color of the discharge may be yellow or gray. The foul smell emanating from the vagina may intensify post coitus.
Given below are the treatments for this disorder –
Clindamycin: Clindamycin is a cream that helps treat bacterial vaginosis.
Metronidazole: This medication may be either administered orally or applied in the form of gel. It is advised to stay away from alcohol during the course of this treatment, as it reduces the efficacy.
Tinidazole: This is an oral medication administered to treat bacterial vaginosis. Akin to metronidazole, it is advised to avoid alcohol during the course of this treatment.
Following certain tips can help prevent bacterial vaginosis.
Avoid Douching: Douching can upset the balance of bacteria in the vagina; hence it is best to avoid it entirely.
Do not use scented toiletries: Using scented toiletries is not good for the vagina as it can disrupt the balance of bacteria in the vagina.
Practice safe sex: Use protection while engaging in sexual intercourse to prevent STIs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Bringing your baby home is an extremely exciting feeling. It’s also the time, when as parents, you tend to get a little nervous thinking of the tremendous responsibility.
Being new to the world, your baby’s immune system is still getting developed. Until they begin with their immunizations, they would need all the help they can get to fend off illness and germs. These below mentioned hygiene tips will help them in getting the healthy start they need.
Wash your hands
Germs roam around your house on your hands. It sounds terrifying, but washing your hands with soap and water is one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of bacteria and germs. A liquid hand wash ensures that the germs are not spread. Dettol Original Liquid Handwash protects you from 100 illness causing germs.
You should wash your hands:
Before breastfeeding or preparing formula milk
Before and after preparing food
After going to the toilet or changing a nappy
After cleaning or touching something filthy (feces, vomit, saliva, urine)
Whenever you feel your hands are dirty
In case you don’t have access to water, use Dettol Wipes to disinfect your hands
Clean surfaces before and after use
As a new mum, you’ll always have your hands full, but by establishing a foolproof hygiene routine at home you can safeguard the whole family from harmful germs. Surfaces that you come in contact with on a regular basis should be cleaned and disinfected. These include:
Kitchen surfaces before and after you prepare food
Baby changing mats and nappy bins
Toilet seats, flushes and taps
Light switches and bin lids
Once your baby starts utilizing a high chair, it’s imperative that you keep it hygienically clean. Dettol Hygiene Liquid will get rid of 99.9% of germs that are present.
Prevent infection from visitors
You can bet money on the fact that the moment you reach home, friends and family will be queuing up to say hello to the newest member of the family. Don’t be hesitant to ask them to wash their hands before and after they touch your baby. Also, ask people who are ill to postpone their visit to meet your baby until they are better.
Immunizations for your baby
Immunizations – or vaccinations – are a fast, safe and extremely effective method to protect your loved ones from infectious diseases, such as tetanus, diphtheria, polio and whooping cough. Once vaccinated, your baby’s small body will be able to fight diseases in a more efficient manner.
The advised age to start vaccinations for your child is two months. Get in touch with your doctor to plan your vaccination schedule, so that your baby gets the right vaccinations at the perfect time.
