How Air Pollution Affects Your Children's Lungs

How Air Pollution Affects Your Children's Lungs

Air pollution is known to take a toll on the lungs of even the healthiest adults. So it comes as no surprise that the effects of this pollution on the lungs of children is deemed as a grave situation, full of health hazards including the onset of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders and conditions like asthma. Read on to find out more about the link between air pollution and its effect on the lungs of children.

-   Children's Lungs: Mostly, all the organs of a child's body are considered delicate and not fully matured until the child reaches a certain age. The main and largest part of the child's lungs will usually grow only after the child has been born - much like the arms and legs. In fact, it is a medically proven fact that about 80% of the tiniest of air sacs grow after the child's birth. These are called the alveoli and they facilitate the transfer of the oxygen into the blood stream with a life sustaining function that is built into our lungs. These alveoli continue to grow until the child becomes an adult. 

-   Immunity and Infections: Like the lungs of the child, the immunity of the child is also still in its growth phase, and very much unlike the immunity that an adult enjoys. This makes the child more susceptible to infections that are usually carried by air pollution in today's day and age of urban living when myriad pollutants are sent into the air every single day. Also, since children play outdoors more often and spend more time breathing in this air, they are more prone to these infections and lung or respiratory ailments due to this reason. Various studies and tests have shown inflammation in the respiratory passages caused by deposits of carbon dioxide emissions in the lungs of children.

-   Symptoms: Usually, the very first symptoms that show that air pollution is affecting the child's lungs can be seen when persistent coughing and wheezing sets in, without any proper reason. Also, when the child faces bronchial infections time and time again, then this points at the hazardous effects of air pollution as well. 

-   Respiratory problems: Apart from respiratory problems which can lead to asthmatic attacks, hay fever and allergies as well as other COPD ailments, there are other related dangers. These can happen when constant choking and obstruction of oxygen due to pollution become a regular affair. These include strokes and brain damage which can eventually also lead to a higher risk of dementia. 

The government and citizens need to ensure that there is a drop in particle air pollution so as to ensure that children do not fall prey to such health problems.

For skin problems, we need to see the case to come to any conclusion. Without visualizing the condition, it is difficult to come to any conclusion regarding skin disease. So if possible, do visit the clinic or book an online appointment for the treatment. Fungal infection usually occurs recurrently, so the type of infection needs to be analysed. It may be either allergic, fungal, urticaria, eczema, psoriasis, lupus or any other disease. For this, you need to take proper homeopathic treatment along with maintaining of hygienic conditions.

Penis Rash? How To Spot A Latex Allergy?

Penis Rash? How To Spot A Latex Allergy?

Penis Rash? How to Spot a Latex Allergy?

For many men, allergies are just a fact of life. But what to do if one has an allergic reaction to latex, the material that most condoms are made of? Condoms, of course, are an essential step to engaging in safe sex, making an allergy a real problem to manage. But a penis latex allergy is no reason to risk contracting a sexually transmitted disease. Luckily, for men that deal with this affliction there are many non-latex condom options on the market.

How to Detect a Latex Allergy?

Only a doctor can officially diagnose a latex allergy, but there are many way to detect a man may be experiencing an adverse reaction to this material.

1) Burning Sensation: One of the most common symptoms of a latex allergy is a burning sensation on the penis. If the burning discomfort goes away once the condom is removed, it may be a sign that an allergy is present. However, if the discomfort lingers well after the condom removal, it may be a sign that the burning is being caused by something else.

2) Penis rash: If you've repeatedly exposed your penis to latex, you may develop a penis rash from the allergy. Typically, the symptoms of a latex allergy will grow more severe with increase exposure to the material. In other words, the more often you exposure your penis to latex, the more severe your symptoms will be each time your penis comes in contact with latex. After repeated use, a penis rash may occur from latex condoms. A rash caused by a latex allergy will typically be red or pink and may flake when scratched.

3) Blisters: After extended exposure to latex, a man may experience blisters on his penis from his allergy. These unsightly sores are caused by the immune system attempting to defending itself against the latex, which, because of the allergy, it has deemed a threat to the body. These blisters will usually be water-filled and can be very painful. Under no circumstances should these sores be popped, as the fluid inside, histamine, can be spread to other parts of the body.

4) Anaphylaxis: This is the most severe reaction to latex and happens after repeated, prolonged exposure to latex or other allergen. In this situation, a man will experience shortness of breath, difficulty breathing as well as a swelling of the lips, tongue and throat. Additionally, one might experience a rapid heartbeat and chest pain. In this instance, it is essentially to immediately be seen by a medical professional. If left untreated, anaphylaxis can constrict airways, leading to death.

Latex Alternatives

Luckily, dealing with a latex allergy is as simple as avoiding latex. Because so many men and women deal with this allergy, many non-latex condom options have been developed. Many condom brands carry polyurethane options, which many people prefer due to their odorless nature and ability to be used with any lubricant. While polyurethane condoms should prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses, there is little clinical data available on their ability to prevent sexually transmitted infections.

Another latex alternative are lambskin condom. As the name suggests, these contraceptives are made from a lamb's intestinal membrane. Users of these condoms claim they have a more natural feel than latex and polyurethane options and the closest feel to not wearing a condom at all. However, it's important to note that while these prevent pregnancy, they not protect against sexually transmitted disease.
