So, what are the symptoms of walking pneumonia? Most of the symptoms of walking pneumonia are very similar to what a person gets when they have a cold or a flu. They could have: a sore throat, a fever, malaise, a dry cough and a headache. What makes the symptoms of walking pneumonia different from the symptoms associated with a bad cold or flu? Two words can answer that question: timeframe and severity. When a person is suffering through the symptoms of walking pneumonia, they will suffer a lot longer than if they were simply experiencing the typical problems of a cold or a flu. Additionally, the treatment methods that work for colds and flus won’t work for alleviating the symptoms of walking pneumonia.

The only real way to get rid of the symptoms of walking pneumonia is to either wait for the disease to go away on its on or get medical attention. The latter is recommended, since there are rare cases where the disease can become something more serious. And even when it doesn’t, it can take up to a month for the body to get rid of the disease on its own. That is way to long to be suffering with these types of symptoms. But if you go to the doctor once the symptoms appear, you can get antibiotics. With antibiotics the symptoms of walking pneumonia will clear up in a week or less. In addition, you will be monitored to make sure the disease doesn’t get any worse. Sure, such things are not very common for people with healthy immune systems, but since it can happen it’s best you don’t take any chances.

Once you get on antibiotics, you do not necessarily need bed rest to help speed up the recovery process. As long as walking pneumonia is medically treated, you can do what you would normally do without fear of infecting other people. However, even while you are on antibiotics, you will still suffer through the symptoms of walking pneumonia, even if it’s for a small period of time. You may want to wait for your symptoms to clear up before you return to work, since they can still make you feel miserable.

In conclusion, don’t ignore the symptoms of walking pneumonia because they are not in the same league as traditional pneumonia. True, they are not as extreme, but they are still indicative that things are not completely normal with your body.

When someone says, "I have a cold," what he or she means is, "There is something in my body that is causing me to have the set of symptoms that we call a 'cold.'" The set of symptoms normally includes things like a runny nose, sneezing, coughing, "chills" and a headache. It does not include a fever -- normally, if there is a fever it's called "the flu."

There are many different viruses that can cause cold symptoms, but about half of the time a cold is caused by a class of viruses called rhinoviruses.

The rhinovirus gets into the cells lining your nose and starts reproducing. It arrives from other people -- it is not cold weather that causes a cold, but the fact that cold weather causes people to congregate together indoors, which makes transmission of the virus easier. The virus generally moves from someone else's hands to your hands (either directly or through some intermediate surface like a door knob), and from your hands into your nose or eyes.

Your body reacts to the presence of the virus with its immune system. The article How Your Immune System Works talks about infectious diseases and how your immune system deals with them. In the case of a cold, the immune system opens up blood vessels through inflammation and also increases mucus secretions. These two processes give you the runny nose and the stuffy feeling. The irritation caused by the virus and all of the fluid causes sneezing. If the virus makes it into the cells lining the lungs, then they start producing fluid and mucus as well, which produces the cough.

As the immune system gears up over several days and fights the virus, the mucus thickens and changes color with dead cells (a form of pus, really). Eventually, the immune system eliminates the virus completely and you are well again!

tadapox pas cher en france

17) I am getting very cold and tingling feet and hands. They are becoming painful, like from frostbite.

I also have bad pain in my lower back. My hair (and I mean all my hair) has become exceptionally thin, not the sturdy shafts as before. I don't feel well after eating and I am scared.

16) I think my on again-off again boyfriend has poisoned me with some type of chemical that he uses at work. He works at a place called varmen guard; it's like Orkin and he has access to all types of chemicals. I think he put it in my food while I was in the shower.

About an hour or two after eating, I started to get headaches, my throat became sore and both of my lower legs started to cramp and convulse really bad. Can insecticides cause these types of problems?

15) I suspect my ex-wife of trying to poison me many years ago. We had curry in the evening and she gave some of the leftover to take to work for lunch. After that I got violently sick. The symptoms included a painful and sensitive stomach, vomiting and confusion.

I looked into her eyes as she was about to give me more curry food and saw this cold look in her eyes. I then refused any food from her which saved my life. I recovered after that within three days.

14) @Post 13: Are you able to purchase test kits online without him knowing? I just purchased an arsenic test kit online, and they have other kinds of test kits too. You can test any liquid, I believe even your urine. I would either recommend testing your urine or saving a drink or other liquid he gives you until you can test it without him knowing.

As far as a way to narrow down what chemical it is, google lists of poisons and symptoms and see which ones fit your symptoms best. That way, you can narrow it down a little and go from there.

My husband and I have been being poisoned by my adoptive parents for a while. We believe it is arsenic, and our symptoms are similar to yours: Every time after we would eat an open food from our fridge (like pickles from a jar), our throats would burn, we would get really tired, very bad headaches, very weak. Then, after about an hour or so, we would both have very bad stomach cramps and severe diarrhea. These people have been poisoning me for a long time (we have since taken many precautions against it and have filed police reports), but from my experience, I can tell you that it will only get worse. I was in the hospital and came very close to dying many times.

Whatever poison this man you are living with is using, it may not just be in the food or drinks. Do you take any vitamins or pills? It can be in there too, especially if the pills are powdery.

I hope this helps and I hope you stay safe and healthy. Good luck.

13) I've been worried that the guy I'm living with is poisoning me with something. He makes food and won't eat it. My symptoms can be mild to severe.

First is my stomach severely bloats like I'm pregnant, my urine smells really odd, like a weird chemical and sometimes my stool does as well. I get nausea and diarrhea and right now I'm really sick.

My throat feels literally like it's been burned. I get a weird menthol type vapor in my throat or it just feels hot inside. Sometimes I'm really tired and weak and either my heart races or it's slow. I'm having tingling in my hands. Please can someone help? He's a farmer. I don't think I'm crazy. What chemical would it be?

12) I am pretty sure I am being poisoned with arsenic. Is there a way to test food or liquids for arsenic? What are other ways people may put arsenic in your house? I have a very sore throat, trouble breathing, stomach pains, severe diarrhea, joint pain, and muscle twitches.

I have been poisoned before by the people I am suspecting, but I am not sure of the poison they are using and how they are getting it into my apartment. I believe they may have a key and come in while I am at work and put it in open food (any time I eat open food, like pickles from a jar or chips, I end up with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea). I stopped eating open food at my house, but I am still sick with the respiratory symptoms, extremely tired, dizzy, and very bad headaches. Does anyone have any suggestions to figure out which poison is being used?

Results from a retrospective nursing home study in the United States show influenza has been found to negatively affect functional status in seniors significantly, and has been associated with activities of daily living (ADL) decline. 11*

* FLUZONE ® High-Dose is not indicated for the prevention of mortality or hospitalization or complications associated with influenza, such as activities of daily living decline (ADL), independence, quality of life or influenza-attributed morbidity and mortality associated with stroke, heart attack, kidney disease and diabetes.

of flu-related hospitalizations 2

of flu-related deaths 2

Canada's National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) considers adults over the age of 65 to be at high risk of influenza-related complications or hospitalization and recommends that all seniors get an influenza vaccine annually. 3

FLUZONE ® High-Dose influenza vaccine has been shown to be more effective for seniors than FLUZONE ®† , our standard dose influenza vaccine. 12

FLUZONE ® High-Dose has been shown to have superior efficacy in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza compared to the FLUZONE ® standard dose vaccine †. In a large multi-centred clinical trial (conducted in US and Canada) FLUZONE ® High-Dose demonstrated a superior relative efficacy of 24.2% (95% CI: 9.7 - 36.5) in preventing influenza illness attributed to any viral type or subtype. The attack rates of laboratory-confirmed influenza-like illness (primary endpoints) were 1.43% in the FLUZONE ® High-Dose arm and 1.89% for the FLUZONE ®† arm. 1 **

Though it has only been available in Canada since 2015, FLUZONE ® High-Dose is not new. It has been available in the US since 2009, with over 90 million doses distributed to date. 13

In choosing a vaccine product, it is important to consider the relative burden of influenza disease caused by the various influenza subtypes (i.e., influenza A(H1N1), influenza A(H3N2) and influenza B) in this age group, as well as the efficacy, immunogenicity and safety profile of the available vaccines. 3

† Fluzone trivalent standard-dose vaccine is not marketed/available in Canada.
** The pre-specified statistical superiority criterion for the primary endpoint (lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the vaccine efficacy of FLUZONE ® High-Dose relative to FLUZONE ® >9.1%; p-value against H0: VE ® High-Dose or FLUZONE ® Trivalent. The study was conducted over two influenza seasons (2011-2012 and 2012-2013). FLUZONE ® High-Dose contained 60 μg of HA per strain while FLUZONE ® Trivalent contained 15 μg of HA per strain. The per-protocol analysis set for efficacy assessments included 15,892 FLUZONE ® High-Dose recipients and 15,911 FLUZONE ® Trivalent recipients. The primary endpoint of the study was the occurrence of laboratory-confirmed influenza, defined as a new onset (or exacerbation) of at least one of the following respiratory symptoms: sore throat, cough, sputum production, wheezing, or difficulty breathing; concurrent with at least one of the following systemic signs or symptoms: temperature > 37.2°C, chills, tiredness, headaches or myalgia.

In the first year of the study, the influenza B component of the vaccine and the majority of influenza B cases were of the Victoria lineage; in the second year, the influenza B component of the vaccine and the majority of influenza B cases were of the Yamagata lineage.

FLUZONE ® High-Dose is indicated for active immunization against influenza caused by the specific strains of influenza virus contained in the vaccine in adults 65 years of age and older. Annual vaccination against influenza using the current vaccine is recommended as immunity declines in the year following vaccination. i

  • Should not be administered to anyone with a history of severe allergic reaction to egg protein or any component of the vaccine or after previous administration of FLUZONE ® High-Dose or a vaccine containing the same components or constituents. ii
  • FLUZONE ® High-Dose is not indicated for persons less than 65 years of age. iii
  • As with any vaccine, immunization with FLUZONE ® High-Dose may not protect 100% of individuals. Protection is limited to those strains of virus from which the vaccine is prepared or against closely related strains. iv
  • Do not administer FLUZONE ® High-Dose by intravascular injection. Do not administer into the buttocks. v
  • Postpone vaccination in case of moderate/severe febrile illness or acute disease. vi
  • Administer FLUZONE ® High-Dose with caution in persons suffering from coagulation disorders or on anticoagulation therapy. vii
  • Immunocompromised persons (whether from disease or treatment) may not elicit the expected immune response. viii
  • Avoid vaccinating persons who are known to have experienced Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks after a previous influenza vaccination. ix

How should I know?

Because that's what I did for about a year before going to the doctor about my herpes symptoms.

A good Herpes test answered my questions.

Herpes is contagious. You owe it to yourself and your partner(s) to get tested and tell them the truth if you see that you have herpes symptoms of any kind.

How Did You Get These Symptoms of Male Genital Herpes?

Herpes is quickly transmitted to and from a partner. In fact, the word herpes in Greek means "Creeping", as even the Greeks knew how quickly this virus could be passed.

Many women don't realize they have any symptoms of herpes. It is something like over 50% of women who have female genital herpes aren't aware of any of their female herpes symptoms.

So you could be having sex with a woman who doesn't even know she has herpes. I think this is what happened to me. Because they certainly didn't tell me.

Although you might be using a condom, the herpes virus can be passed through general skin contact in the genital area. It is highly contagious. Even when there are no obvious symptoms, through asymptomatic viral shedding the virus can be passed through the skin.

That's why a good blood test is essential for you and your partner. You might have herpes, they might have herpes. You don't know unless you get tested.

It only costs about $90 for a blood test for Herpes.

The first signs of male genital herpes will occur within 2-20 days of getting the herpes virus from your sexual partner. Yes, you will see herpes male symptoms that quickly.

The first genital herpes symptoms will be generalized, in other words, you will feel them through large parts of your body as the virus attacks many of your cells. This first outbreak of male genital herpes is called the Primary Outbreak.

Here's some symptoms of male genital herpes you'll likely experience during the p rimary outbreak :

  • Flu or fever (very vommon)
  • High temperatures
  • Decreased appetite
  • Muscle aches (especially in legs, groin, or lower back)
  • Swollen lymph glands
  • Swelling of the penis

So during these first signs of male herpes symptoms it will feel like your whole body is sick. It sucks. For me, I felt like I had the flu!

Male Herpes Symptoms and Lesions during Primary Outbreak

(Picture of male genital herpes on penis)

After feeling flu, fever, or muscle aches, you'll start to feel an intense itching under the skin. This is the virus moving to the surface of your skin.

The next herpes hale symptom you'll experience is small little blisters appearing on the skin surface. They will appear in clusters, many of them together.

Progesterone is an important hormone that both men and women produce. Women rely more on progesterone, especially to do things like protect an ongoing pregnancy and to keep menstrual cycles regular. When women do not have enough of this hormone they may experience low progesterone symptoms, which can be extremely varied and affect many systems in the body.

Low progesterone symptoms can manifest as directly related to menstrual cycle, fertility and reproductive issues. Some common symptoms include irregularity of the menstrual cycle, strong cramps during menstruation, higher incidence of PMS, and greater presence of blood clots during periods. When progesterone levels are very low, infertility may occur because ovulation is not occurring. Another affected aspect can be sex drive or libido, which may be reduced.

These low progesterone symptoms aren’t always dangerous. A female body's production of progesterone naturally decreases 10 to 12 days after ovulation occurs, unless a woman becomes pregnant. This decrease triggers the start of menstruation and can lead to some of the normal symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle, like cramping and PMS. When periods are irregular, however, it may suggest greater imbalance of progesterone levels or other important hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle.

It’s also valuable to understand that menopause causes reduction in progesterone and this may be responsible for certain menopausal symptoms like moods swings, hot flashes, decreased libido, and insomnia. Other low progesterone symptoms may affect women before and after menopause occurs. People may feel fatigue, have dry skin, experience insomnia, have depression, and be likely to put on weight.

Sometimes low progesterone symptoms can be more dangerous. Chronic depression or anxiety, for instance, could lead to risk to suicidal behavior. Low progesterone levels can create dysfunction of the thyroid gland, and most seriously, certain forms of cancer may be more likely, including uterine cancer.

Another possible set of symptoms associated with low progesterone are those affecting memory. People may experience memory loss or lack of mental acuity when levels of this hormone are well below normal. These symptoms may be directly related to lower thyroid hormone. If low progesterone causes hypothyroidism, this in turn can result in difficulty with memory and concentration. Alternately, both hormones aid in mental acuity and lack of both makes decline in mental sharpness more severe.

If you think you have low progesterone levels, you should see your doctor. Many women have a few of these symptoms but never check because their low progesterone symptoms are not too bothersome. Occasionally, slightly reduced levels of progesterone create small concern, but some women find help if they take additional progesterone hormone. There are some over the counter natural progesterone creams you can purchase, but if you really feel your body needs supplementation with this hormone, you should consult a doctor first.

42) Does anyone have symptoms of heavy long periods due to low progesterone. Mine was at a 7 before I got on 300mg of progesterone. I am 30 and dealt with this since I was 10 years old. It’s been a long battle for me. Due to the severity of this we have not been able to conceive a child of our own. Without progesterone my period will last on the average four to six weeks with about a one or two week break and then back on again.

41) I have an autistic daughter who started having seizures last fall. The doctor prescribed a particular med and now her seizures have increased, so the doctor kept increasing the med and the seizures have increased as well.

I started seeing a pattern with her periods and ovulation with the seizures. Last night, I started looking at possible links and found out that increased estrogen and low progesterone can cause seizures. I then looked at symptoms of low progesterone and realized I've suffered from those symptoms for many decades.

The person who wishes to have a new sober life can achieve that goal at any one of some 45 Narconon centers around the world. After withdrawal, the Narconon program guides each person through an intensive detoxification phase called New Life Detoxification. Through running to get the blood circulating, followed by time in a dry-heat sauna to sweat out the drugs, and good nutirition and adequate sleep, drug residues flush out of the fatty tissues of the body. As traces of drug use are eliminated, participants report that they experience return of alertness and reduction or elimination of cravings for drugs.

As the cravings depart, a person begins to think more clearly. This means that they can begin to address the damage they have done to themselves with their drug abuse. One loses personal integrity and feels guilt over the harm done to loved ones. The ability to say no to drugs is often gone and there are troublesome people in one’s past who could make more trouble in the future. To stay sober, it is necessary to recover one’s self-respect and learn the skills needed to make the correct decision in each situation one encounters.

The later phases of the Narconon program address these necessary skills and recoveries. The Narconon program has no set time limit, but usually takes 8-10 weeks. Each person progresses at their own rate. The program takes as long as necessary for the individual to become free of drugs, discover for themselves why they turned to drugs in the first place, and to learn life skills that empower them to live drug-free. The goal of the program is an individual free of drugs and the desire to take them and living a productive and happy life as a contributing member of society.

Intestinal Parasites Symptoms
The Early Warning Signals

Common Intestinal Parasites Symptoms can be recognized as early warning signs that you've got unwanted visitors. Pay attention to your body when it is sounding out the alarm.

The funny thing about parasites is that they are sneaky. I don't suppose they have a brain that literally plots against us, but they are very clever at mimicking other ailments and are able to go undetected by doctors for many years.

That is one of the reasons that I adopted the practice of cleansing my system on a regular basis to insure that no little microscopic creepy crawlies are able to take up permanent residence in my digestive system.

By keeping my colon healthy, I am able to enjoy a stronger immune system that is more prepared to fight off any visiting bacteria that it encounters.

An intestinal parasite may live in your body without you really knowing about it for several years.

You may not experience any symptoms, or even dismiss them as "just getting older" or "having a hard day."

Some of the most common symptoms of parasitic infection are.

  • watery diarrhea
  • intestinal cramping
  • fever
  • fatigue
  • gas
  • bloating
  • bad breath
  • constipation

>> Swollen eyes often accompanied by a discharge. Sometimes this can lead to the development of corneal ulcers.

>> Sneezing and inflammation of the lining is of the nose (rhinitis). Discharge from the nose is initially clear but becomes green and thick as cat flu develops. Your cat's sense of smell may deteriorate significantly, thereby leading to a lack of interest in food.

>> Your cat will clearly appear unwell and may develop a fever. A loss of appetite is very likely and dehydration becomes a real risk.

Feline Calicivirus (FVC):

>> Mouth ulcers are a very common symptom of feline calicivirus and this ultimately triggers off drooling and loss of appetite.

>> Ulcers can affect various parts of your cat including the tongue, palate, mouth, tip of the nose and the lips. One particular strain of FVC is even known to lead to ulcers in a cat's paws.

>> Your cat's nose and eyes are likely to be runny and gingivitis may affect the gums. A fever may also develop and your cat may start to limp as a result of pain in the joints.

Hi doctor. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to ask questions. I'm asking this question for a friend of mine who I'm very concerned about.

More than 2 months ago he had unprotected sex with a prostitute in a brothel. He's actually not even sure if he had sex because he just remembers coming out of the brothel and not the act itself.He was very drunk at the time. He has no idea if the girl is HIV+ or not.

2 to 3 weeks later he developed flu like sypmtoms although he didn't experience any fevers, headaches or night sweats. He just felt a slight tenderness in the back of his throat which still persists and occasionally his hands get inflamed. His hair is also falling out more than usual and he has vomitted a few times and he has suffered from diarrhea a couple of times in the last month. He has also lost about 7-8 kilos since the incident.

He is very convinced he has HIV and is worried to the extreme. This was the first time he's ever been with a prostitute and he regrets what he's done. He's planning to get tested once the 3 months mark is up.

Meanwhile, doctor, can you please tell me, to the best of your knowledge, if these are classic HIV symptoms? I know that some people who are HIV+ have no symptoms, but I'd like to have some sort of info. I just don't want him to stress unnecassarily. I'd like to see him have a peace of mind and get on with his life. Thank you for all your help.

If your friend didn't have a fever, I'm not sure how his symptoms were flu-like. Flu is classicly described as a febrile illness, and fever is a common symptom during primary HIV infection.

It sounds like you both are anxious and are doing a lot of guesswork. If your friend is concerned about his symptoms, he should see a doctor for a check-up. That will greatly inform how he should proceed.

The symptoms of walking pneumonia are a lot less severe than the symptoms associated with traditional pneumonia. The reason this is so is because walking pneumonia in general is a milder form of pneumonia. It is possible that a person can do their normal daily tasks while technically being sick. And, as long as they are taking antibiotics, they don’t have to worry about spreading the disease to other people. However, don’t think that because the symptoms of walking pneumonia are not as bad as traditional pneumonia that they aren’t still annoying. In fact, the symptoms of walking pneumonia can be so bothersome that many may decide to take things easy while they are recovering from the disease.

    Avian Flu Symptoms: How Can You Tell If You Have H5N1?

    North America's first death from the H5N1 virus, also known as avian or bird flu, was reported in Alberta today, contracted by a victim who had just returned from China. While officials have been quick to reassure Canadians that this was an isolated incident and not related to the seasonal flu, this potentially fatal illness has many wondering about the symptoms of this influenza.

    Most avian flu viruses do not infect humans, but some, like the highly pathogenic H5N1, can cause severe infections, according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

    When the H5N1 strain of bird flu appears in humans, it mimics a severe case of the flu, like H1N1 (swine flu)., the U.S. site for flu information, notes that symptoms of H5N1 in humans include:

  • Acute respiratory distress

  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

    The diagnosis of H5N1 based on symptoms alone is difficult because they are so similar to other flu strains; laboratory testing is required to confirm infection, according to the the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

    The bird flu is generally spread to people through direct contact with infected birds or poultry livestock. The H5N1 virus can live in the environment for extended periods, but cannot be contracted by eating properly handled, cooked poultry or eggs, and thus far has not shown any sign of spreading easily from person to person, though that is always a likelihood, warns the CDC. As the Lung Association notes, there has been limited transmission in the case of long-term contact with sick relatives.

    Complications from the avian flu include a range of severe illnesses, including:

  • Altered mental state

    Si vous avez de la fièvre, votre corps perd naturellement beaucoup de liquide, surtout par la transpiration. Il est donc important de boire beaucoup et souvent.

    • Buvez de préférence des liquides froids ou chauds: eau, lait, jus, bouillon.
    • Évitez les boissons alcoolisées ou contenant de la caféine comme le café, le thé et les boissons énergisantes. Comme ces boissons font uriner, elles font augmenter la perte de liquide.

    En l’absence de complications ou de facteurs de risque de complications, le traitement de la grippe ne nécessite pas de médicaments prescrits. Toutefois, pour soulager la fièvre et la douleur, vous pouvez prendre des médicaments offerts en vente libre comme l’acétaminophène, par exemple du Tylenol MD, ou l’ibuprofène, par exemple de l'Advil MD.

    Évitez de prendre en même temps des médicaments qui comprennent des ingrédients identiques. Par exemple, ne prenez pas de Tylenol MD et de Tylenol MD Sinus ensemble, car ces 2 médicaments contiennent de l’acétaminophène.

    Dans certains cas, votre médecin peut vous prescrire un médicament antiviral pour diminuer la durée et la gravité de vos symptômes. Ce type de médicament est plus efficace lorsqu’il est pris dès le début de l’infection.

    Si votre enfant a plus de 3 mois et qu’il a de la fièvre, vous pouvez lui donner de l’acétaminophène, par exemple du Tylenol MD, en suivant les indications fournies avec le produit et selon le poids de votre enfant.

    Évitez de donner de l’acide acétylsalicylique, par exemple de l’aspirine, aux enfants et aux adolescents. En effet, ce médicament pourrait entraîner l’apparition d’une maladie grave du cerveau et du foie, maladie appelée « syndrome de Reye », chez des enfants et adolescents qui ont la grippe.

    La grippe peut entraîner certaines complications:

    • déshydratation, due à la transpiration causée par la fièvre;
    • pneumonie;
    • bronchite;
    • sinusite;
    • otite.

    Chez les personnes considérées comme plus vulnérables, certaines complications peuvent entraîner l’hospitalisation et même la mort.

    Richard Wenzel: In a study during SARS outbreak in China, masks appeared to be protective, however you are correct, there has to be a tight fit of the mask around the face. Currently, we would recommend N-95 masks if this disease progresses in the US.

    Potomac, Md.: How do I know if my kids have the swine flu or just a cold? They both have sore throats, fevers, coughs.

    Richard Wenzel: Children or adults with fever and muscle aches and cough with or without diarrhea and vomiting should today be tested for influenza in light of the growing numbers of swine flu patients being identified in the US.

    Tampa Bay, Fla.: Could you talk a little about recognizing the difference between a cold and a flu. Is fever the key factor? What about runny nose?

    Richard Wenzel: Fever and cough are very distinguishing features of influenza. A running nose by itself is more likely a common cold virus, rhinovirus.

    Washington D.C.: Any ideas as to why this disease only appears to be fatal in Mexico?

    Richard Wenzel: Interesting question, since the virus seems to be the same in both the US and Mexico. Therefore, we have to look at the host: possibilities include some protective cross reacting antibodies in US patients that are not present in Mexican patients, possible the air pollution in Mexico City that damages the airways, and possibility malnutrition in some patients in Mexico. However, the bottom line is that we do not know.

    Anonymous: North Potomac, Md. We are flying to Albany, N.Y. later this week. Should we wear surgical masks on the plane? Thanks

    Richard Wenzel: At this point it is probably not necessary. Large planes such as 758s have laminar airflow (ceiling to floor) which offers additional protection. However, if possible, I would move away from someone with any obvious respiratory infection.

    Richmond, Va.: I have a toddler who sucks her thumb/fingers. How do I keep her "germ free" at a playground -- esp. in light of swine flu. Would a baby wipe be effective until we're able to get to a place to wash her hands?

    Richard Wenzel: In general alcohol wipes will kill the influenza virus. However, I know how often you would have to apply this to your toddler's hands.

    Alexandria, Va.: Is there an incubation period? And, if so, are you contagious during this period?

    Richard Wenzel: In general, the incubation period is two to five days. Adult patients will excrete the virus for up to a week, but young children can excrete virus for two to three weeks. People who are immune suppressed who are infected with influenza can excrete the virus for over three weeks after infection.

    Rockville, Md.: Any clues as to why this outbreak is occurring so late in the season? Why do flu outbreaks usually only occur in the winter months?

    Richard Wenzel: Of interest, the 1918 influenza pandemic began in the Spring and recurred the following Winter. No one knows why the virus usually occurs in the Winter and Spring on an annual basis. There is more crowding indoors in the Winter and Spring and less humidity, and some experts think that these are important in explaining the seasonal nature of influenza.
