Home remedies: There's not much you can do to reduce swollen glands. They should return to normal within a few weeks.

Over-the-counter remedies: Other cold or flu symptoms will probably bother you more, but acetaminophen or ibuprofen can ease any discomfort caused by the engorged glands.

The symptom: Body aches

What it means: More common with the flu, allover aches are a sign your body is releasing chemicals that help your white blood cells fight off infection.

When to worry: Only if the aches are incapacitating, which is rarely the case with a cold or the flu.

Home remedies: Get plenty of rest, and take warm baths to soothe your muscles --or try using a heating pad or a heated water bottle.

Over-the-counter remedies: Acetaminophen or ibuprofen will relieve the pain.

Coughing and drooling can also be clear indications of cat flu or cat colds. Drooling can be particularly upsetting for cat owners as your moggy's fur can become completely soaked in saliva. Coughing is also very distressing and can sometimes lead to retching.

Below are details of the main symptoms associated with each of the two viruses normally associated with cat flu - Feline HerpesVirus (FHV- 1) and Feline Calicivirus (FCV)

Feline HerpesVirus (FHV- 1):

>> 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.

If you have been trying to get pregnant, or you have a suspicion that you may have conceived, there are some common signs and symptoms that occur to most women early in their pregnancy. These symptoms include emotional signs as well as physical symptoms. If you identify with these signs, and feel that you may be pregnant, it is important to confirm your pregnancy as early as possible to begin prenatal care for you and your new baby.

A missed period is one of the most obvious signs of pregnancy, but by the time you realize you have missed your period you could already be 2-3 weeks pregnant. Some early symptoms of pregnancy begin even before a missed period. These signs include flu like symptoms, fatigue, headache, implantation bleeding, mood swings, nausea, changes in your breasts, frequent urination, and odd food cravings. Many of these symptoms mimic pre-menstrual symptoms and can occur a few days after conception occurs.

Many women report feeling severe fatigue very early in their pregnancy; the fatigue quickly goes away and then they feel quite energetic until late in the pregnancy. Implantation bleeding occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself into the uterine wall; this process occurs 6-12 days after conception and may be accompanied by light spotting and cramps.

Die Impfung gegen Grippe jährlich erneuern zu lassen ist deshalb ratsam, da die Grippeviren ständig ihre Struktur ändern und Sie deshalb trotz Impfung in der nächsten Grippesaison nicht mehr ausreichend geschützt sind. Die empfohlenen Impfstoffe enthalten eine Mischung, die gegen verschiedene Grippeviren wirksam sind. Die Grippeimpfung kann aber nur der Influenza vorbeugen: Ein grippaler Infekt (Erkältung) lässt sich mit einem Grippeimpfstoff nicht verhindern.

Für folgende Personengruppen gilt die vorbeugende Impfung gegen Grippe als besonders empfehlenswert:

  • für Personen über 60 Jahre
  • für Schwangere ab dem zweiten Schwangerschaftsdrittel (bei erhöhter Gesundheitsgefahr wegen einer anderen Grunderkrankung ab dem ersten Schwangerschaftsdrittel)
  • für Kinder, Jugendliche und Erwachsene mit einer erhöhten gesundheitlichen Gefährdung infolge eines Grundleidens wie chronische Lungenerkrankungen, Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen, Lebererkrankungen und Nierenerkrankungen, Diabetes und andere Stoffwechselkrankheiten, chronischen neurologischen Erkrankungen wie multiple Sklerose, Immunschwäche, HIV-Infektion
  • für Bewohner von Alters- oder Pflegeheimen
  • für Menschen mit erhöhtem Ansteckungsrisiko, zum Beispiel medizinisches Personal oder Personen in Einrichtungen mit umfangreichem Publikumsverkehr
  • für jeden, der Menschen mit erhöhtem Gesundheitsrisiko betreut und diese so im Fall einer Infektion anstecken könnte,
  • für Menschen mit direktem Kontakt zu Geflügel und Wildvögeln (schützt zwar nicht vor der Vogelgrippe, kann aber einer gleichzeitigen Infektion durch menschliche Grippeviren und Vogelgrippeviren vorbeugen)
  • für jeden, wenn (aufgrund von Erfahrungen in anderen Ländern) eine Grippeepidemie oder ein neuer Virustyp zu erwarten ist und hierfür schon ein Grippeimpfstoff zur Verfügung steht

In einigen Fällen kommen auch sogenannte Neuraminidasehemmer vorbeugend gegen Grippe zum Einsatz: Manche Ärzte halten eine Behandlung mit diesen Medikamenten zum Beispiel für sinnvoll, wenn wegen einer Vorerkrankung eine Schutzimpfung nicht möglich ist oder wenn (z.B. wegen eines geschwächten Immunsystems) nur ein geringer Impfschutz gegen Influenza besteht.

Auch für bestimmte Personengruppen (wie medizinisches Personal) können diese Wirkstoffe in Betracht kommen – zum Beispiel wenn ein wirksamer Impfstoff gegen ein neues Grippevirus (noch) fehlt. Um der Virusgrippe vorzubeugen, ist jedoch die Grippeimpfung die Maßnahme der ersten Wahl.

Wenn Sie schon eine Grippe haben, können Sie ihrer Ausbreitung vorbeugen, indem Sie eine Ansteckung Ihrer Mitmenschen und somit neue Grippefälle vermeiden. Dazu ist es wichtig, dass Sie:

  • beim Niesen und Husten Ihre Nase und Ihren Mund bedecken (dabei nicht in die nackte Hand husten oder niesen, sondern z.B. in die Armbeuge),
  • sich regelmäßig die Hände waschen,
  • statt Stofftaschentüchern Papiertaschentücher verwenden und
  • benutzte Einweg-Papiertaschentücher direkt entsorgen.

Neben der Impfung gegen Grippe (Influenza) ist für bestimmte Personengruppen eine Pneumokokken-Schutzimpfung empfehlenswert, die einer Lungenentzündung durch Pneumokokken wirksam vorbeugen kann. Die Pneumokokken-Schutzimpfung ist wichtig für:

  • Menschen ab dem 60. Lebensjahr
  • Säuglinge bis zum 24. Lebensmonat
  • Kinder, Jugendliche und Erwachsene mit einer schweren Grunderkrankung

Avian influenza, or bird flu, is an illness caused by influenza A viruses. While most forms of bird flu are mild, concern has grown over more serious forms of bird flu, particularly the H5N1 virus that has been known to cause death in humans. Many wild birds carry influenza viruses with no symptoms, but when flu viruses spread to domesticated birds, they may become ill. Because of the deadly H5N1 outbreaks that have been seen in places like Asia and Europe since 2003, and the rare instances of human infection, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control urges all poultry workers to know the signs of illness in birds and take preventive measures.

Chickens with bird flu may cough, sneeze and have nasal discharge, which may be bloody. Respiratory symptoms may be mild in birds suffering from common, mild forms of avian influenza, according to the World Health Organization. Chickens sick with bird flu may also have diarrhoea.

Influenza B is a type of flu that is similar to influenza A. However, while A usually afflicts people in the early winter, influenza B can infect any time of the year. Another difference between the two, according to Dr. Vincent Racaniello, a professor at Columbia University, and author of "The Virology Blog," is that type B can only pass from human to human unlike type A bird flu or swine flu. However, researchers have found that gray and harbor seals can contract influenza B as well.

Type A and B share many symptoms.

One of the earliest symptoms of type B influenza is a fever. The National Institute of Health reports that the fever can come on quickly and go as high as 106 degrees. However, according to the Penn State College of Medicine, while A and B influenza share the same symptoms, type B generally produces much milder symptoms, so the fever will not be as acute. Also, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that adults usually have a lower fever temperature than children do. The fever is often accompanied by body aches and fatigue.

Penn State Medical Center also reports that as the fever begins to leave, respiratory symptoms begin to develop. These symptoms are a stuffy or runny nose, cough and sore throat. These symptoms can become worse over time, and even turn into bronchitis or pneumonia if not treated. While these symptoms will usually disappear within a week, the cough can remain for several weeks.

There are times when type B influenza can affect the stomach also, which is why some people refer to it as the "stomach flu." The stomach flu is not a different type of flu virus; it is simply symptoms of the flu that affect the stomach. Some of these symptoms, as listed by the NIH, include vomiting, nausea and loss of appetite.

Influenza B symptoms, while the same as influenza A symptoms, are not quite as severe in their intensity. When you get a flu shot, it is meant to protect you from both influenza A and B strains.

I have expanded the section on aspartame withdrawal here, mainly because of your feedback (see the responses below). Many people have told me that even after realizing just how bad aspartame is, they just cannot stop using it. When they try to stop, they get that “need to have it” feeling. They also experience classic withdrawal symptoms such as headache, anger, or anxiety until they get the next hit.

Excitotoxins and your brain

All the reasons that cause this addiction seem to be unclear. We know that aspartame breaks down to a highly absorbable form of methanol in the liver, which impairs dopamine receptors witch decreases serotonin. This causes an addiction similar to alcoholism which also leads to depression and mood disorders. Some drinks such as Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi contain caffeine as well, and seem even harder to quit (Diet Coke seems to be the clear “addiction” winner).

Aspartame (like MSG) is an excitotoxin. An excitotoxin has effects similar to the way the word sounds. It is a toxin that excites brain cells to a much higher level. During this time you will heightened clarity and sharper cognition. After this brief “rush” it actually kills the cells. This is believed to be the cause of many brain disorders from cancer and stroke, to multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Check out this reader response I have dubbed: Aspartame Poisoning. Read for yourself the unbelievable damage she claims is caused by years of high consumption of Diet Coke and Diet Dr Pepper. There are also many more responses below. This is a much more serious problem than most of us think.

Please let me know if YOU are addicted to aspartame or have aspartame withdrawal. Please also list your symptoms. I would like to help others break the habit.
Please, please, please, help me, help others on this!

Note : Due to popular demand (and my love for the products), I have added the Internal Cleansing products below. This are THE BEST ones I could find. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments on them.

Stevia: There is some controversy over using Stevia. I am a BIG FAN (see Omica Organics to the right of this page). That said, I mix my Stevia with 1/2 Raw Honey or Grade B Maple Syrup. It just “feels right”. Try it, and let me know what you think. Remember, TRUVIA IS NOT STEVIA! It is made by Coka-cola and Cargil (yes, poisoned again).

Hi I decided to give up coke zero last week as I was spending so much money on it. I would usually drink about 2-3 litres a day and on the weekends too many to count. I’m 41 and have been a Diet/coke zero drinker for about 20 years. Well it is day 8 and I feel great. On the second day of detox I had such a bad headache that I couldn’t go to work and had this ringing in my ears. I have also noticed that I am not eating anything sweet like chocolate or cake and can’t believe that I am writing this, but I don’t want any! People have noticed that I have lost weight (around the tummy). For people that are finding it hard, keep going you will find it easier and you will feel better. So glad i found this site.

Well done you. Thinking about it, I’d have chocolate every day. Never really had a sweet tooth but don’t even want chocolate now. Keep at it xxxx

35 yr old female. Consumed 5 to 6 packets of crystal light a day for approximately the last 10 years of my life (major addiction). I don’t like water, so I flavored all my water. I decided to get healthy. I cut sugar, processed foods of all kinds, caffeine, milk, bread (anything that could be converted to sugar), HOWEVER…I did not cut my artificially sweetened drink packets. They are zero calories, zero sugar, zero carbs…so what’s the big deal? I held onto that one addiction. The one thing I didn’t wanna deprive myself of.

So I started reading articles about how “artificial sweeteners make you fat”. How could this be? Long story short, I called a nutrition expert and had the whole thing explained to me. So I cut my drink packets cold turkey. I can tell you this! Of all the withdrawal symptoms I’ve gone through on this journey (be it sugar, caffeine, whatever. ) Aspartame takes the cake. Immediately within hours of not getting up and drinking my morning dose, the headache set it. By about 3pm I was experiencing the WORST headache I’ve ever had in my life. Felt as if my brain was swelling and pressing against every part of my skull. My muscles went tight. My knees went stiff and joints ached that haven’t ever ached. I was sweating on and off throughout the day. Literally bed ridden and useless. Felt almost like a bad flu. I slept all day trying to sleep off the headache. Day 2, tried to play in a softball game, felt extremely weak, sweaty, jittery, foggy, elbows and knees hurt…head still hurting. No appetite, angry and moody as hell. I shouldn’t have ever gone.

So today is my day 3 without aspartame. MY HEAD STILL HURTS! My brain feels like a bruise. I know I’m only one diet drink away from feeling better, but I’m not gonna do it. F you aspartame!

I add Truly Natural Vitamin C from Healthforce to my water now. Every bit as good as Crystal Light IMO and super great for you. Hope that helps,

Hi Leslie, Hope you can hang in. It. Ignatian take 4 to 6 weeks, but know that your body has done all it,can do and is mending. It just hurts to get better.

Well done Lesley. The headaches will get better. I’m so conscious of buying bottled drinks without inspecting the additives now but that’s also become second nature. Weirdest thing is going into a pub and not asking for Bacardi and diet coke. For years I gave my kids diet coke as it was ‘better’ than fat coke cos it had no calories. I used to moan like mad if they drank fat coke. Now I’m asking for it too. Good luck with your ongoing battle 🙂 Love and hugs xx

The thyroid, a small gland located in the front of the neck, produces hormones that regulate the rate at which every cell in your body functions. Accordingly, thyroid disease can significantly impact a person’s overall health. If the thyroid produces too little thyroid hormone, the body’s metabolism slows, causing listlessness and other symptoms; an overproduction of thyroid hormone results in feelings of nervousness and a faster heart rate. Other thyroid diseases result in different symptoms

Visit our thyroid resources page for a detailed description of the thyroid, its function, and thyroid disease symptoms. Depending upon the type of thyroid disease, symptoms can vary radically:

Hyperthyrodism: A condition in which the thyroid produces too much hormone, hyperthyroidism most commonly affects women between the ages of 20 and 40; however, women of any age and men can be affected as well. Graves’ disease, a condition in which the immune system stimulates the thyroid gland, is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism but there can be other causes including thyroid nodules (small bumps on the thyroid) and taking too much thyroid hormone medication to treat a separate condition. This thyroid disease’s symptoms may include the following:

  • Nervousness, irritability
  • Increased sweating
  • Increased, sometimes irregular, heart rate
  • More frequent bowel movements, diarrhea
  • Shaky hands
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Lighter period(women)
  • Erectile dysfunction (men)

Thyroid Cancer – Thyroid cancer arises when small tumors called thyroid nodules grow on the thyroid gland. Having a nodule on your thyroid is quite common, and 90% to 95% of thyroid nodules are noncancerous. However, those that are cancerous can spread through the body, or metastasize, and become life-threatening. Thyroid cancer often exhibits no thyroid disease symptoms, and is typically found during a routine examination. Malignant nodules tend to be firmer than benign nodules, so they can often be identified by touch.

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Stiff neck
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Light sensitivity
  • Confusion
  • Sleepiness
  • Seizures - as condition progresses
  • Altered mental state - in advanced stages
  • Shock - in advanced stages
  • Flu-like symptoms - viral infections

Proper breast health and early prevention of both benign and malignant disease are of the utmost importance in womens' health. Knowing all of the signs and symptoms of common conditions of the breast and surrounding tissues, gives you the knowledge needed to help live a long and healthy life. Whenever any of these symptoms emerge, make an appointment with your doctor to find the true cause of them.

Changes in Shape: Obvious changes in the shape of the breast sometimes indicates breast disease such as cancer or inflammatory breast cancer. The change of size, or shape of the breast often cause the breasts to appear asymmetrical, with one breast being noticeably larger than the other, or misshapen. The texture of the breast also changes, in addition to the shape and size. Small dimples appear, or bumps, on the surface of the skin of the breast.

Discharge: A bloody or pustular discharge coming from the nipples often indicates breast disease such as breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic. The evidence of this discharge usually denotes a malignant condition that requires immediate diagnosis in order to take proper steps in treating it.

Inverted Nipples: In conjunction with other symptoms, when the nipples appear inverted or flattened, breast diseases such as inflammatory breast cancer and breast cancer may be possible. The symptom often coincides with other symptoms such as pain and swelling.

Thirty-three of them agreed to undergo a standard skin-prick allergy test using a diluted form of their own semen. Of those, 29, or 88 percent, had a positive skin reaction indicating an auto-immune response, or allergic reaction.

In a second study in the same journal, Waldinger’s team decided to try treating two of the volunteers with hyposensitization therapy — a well-known technique for treating allergies, also called allergen immunotherapy, which repeatedly exposes the body to small but gradually increasing amounts of the allergen over several years.

In the POIS therapy, the men were given skin injections containing their own semen, at first in an extremely dilute form, and then in gradually less diluted forms. The study’s results showed that after one and three years respectively, the men showed a significant reduction in their POIS symptoms.

“It’s a very slow process. It is used for all sorts of allergies and can sometimes take up to 5 years,” Waldinger said. In the light of the first results, his team have now started several more POIS patients on hyposensitization therapy.

Schistosomiasis is a disease caused by parasites. Schistosoma is the genus of the several species of flatworms that are responsible for causing this disease. Schistosomiasis is popularly known as snail fever. Theodor Bilharz was the first to describe the cause of urinary schistosomiasis in 1851, and this disease is also called Bilharzia or Bilharziosis in many countries after him.

This disease mostly affects the tropical countries like Africa, the Caribbean islands, and eastern part of South America, East Asia, and the Middle East. Estimation shows that about 207 million people are suffering from this disease, and about another 120 million are displaying the symptoms. Different types of Schistosomiasis are found in different areas as follows:

Schistosoma mansoni—parts of South America and the Caribbean, Africa, and the Middle East

Schistosoma haematobium— Africa and the Middle East

Schistosoma japonicum— Far East. S. Mekongi and S. intercalatum are found focally in Southeast Asia and central West Africa, respectively

Schistosomiasis is one of the most commonly picked up disease in developing countries which is acquired by swimming in such water bodies that are infested with snails, usually the biomphlaria, bulinus, or the oncomelania types, or which are the carriers of the schistosoma pathogens.

Schistosoma mansoni (ICD-10 B65.1)— intestinal schistosomiasis

Schistosoma intercalatum (B65.8)—intestinal schistosomiasis

Schistosoma haematobium (B65.0)—urinary schistosomiasis

Schistosoma japonicum (B65.2)—intestinal schistosomiasis

Schistosoma mekongi (B65.8)—intestinal schistosomiasis

    I have been on lexapro for about 6 months and had to quit cold turkey due to financial reasons and this is a complete NIGHTMARE! I have had brain zaps that feel like electricity running through my head, then a sensation of the breath being sucked out of me which in turn cause my lips to start tingling and this is just the tip of the iceberg. When these symptoms started they brought on what my neurologist is now calling a complicated migraine and when I get one of those I sometimes don't know who my family is during it and I develop aphasia which is all really scary. This has been going on since Father's Day. I am about to loose my mind! I really don't know how much more I can take.

    When my doctor first prescribed Lexapro for me, I thought I had died and went to heaven; it really worked well for me (helped to alleviate depression and anxiety). After taking it for approximately 10 years ranging from 10 mg to 30 mg daily doses depending on a variety of life stressors, I was tired of trying to wean myself from the 30 mg doses. My doctor told me to decrease my dose from 20 to 10 mg for two weeks and then start 10 mg of Wellbutrin twice a day. The withdrawal symptoms which can be described as flu-like symptoms; dizziness, nausea, etc are awful but every so often the dizziness is accompanied by a whooshy/buzzing sensation in my head. Sometimes I need to sit down so I don't lose my balance. Based on what others have written on this blog, it seems it may have a few more months to suffer through before this hopefully better even though I have since I started taking the Wellbutrin. If anything, misery loves company and I feel less alone knowing that I am not the only one who is being tormented/tortured with these symptoms.

    I feel for all you folks.I went in for a stress test and they found a lower heart beating. My Cadriologist told me to stop the lexipro immediately so its been a week and I have crazy headaches and moments of dizziness with some irratability. I wish you all the best and hope you find the answers and comfort you are looking for

    I recently stopped taking lexapro, most likely two weeks ago. I have noticed a huge shift in my weight. I have gained about 10 pounds. Could this be a discontinuation side effect of the meds?

    I was taking 5mg of Lexapro for over 2 years for horrible perimenopause symptoms. I tapered very slowly and have been off a month today. For almost two weeks I have never felt worse in my life. My anxiety is through the roof! I have constant hot flashes and terrible insomnia. My appetite is gone too. While on Lexapro, I gained weight and was hungry often. This is a horrible way to live. How long will this last? My husband says that my dose was so low that I could not possibly be affected by withdrawal symptoms. But, why do I feel so terrible when I have never felt this way before? I was on the drug for over 2 years. Any help is so appreciated.

    Typical Signs of Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia.

    Irritability. This isn't your typical "I just don't want to be bothered right now". This is a growing anger and near hatred of everything and everyone around you. This symptom of sleep deprivation will cause you to snap at the littlest things and boil over in anger at the most trivial of mistakes. You'll quickly know whether or not this level of "intolerance" is normal for you.

    Tiredness. An unwavering, incessant feeling of "I just want to lay down and do nothing". In fact, doing nothing and thinking nothing sounds like the PERFECT idea and you want to start right now -- even if you're at work in the middle of a board meeting. Any task, be it big or small, is just too much work for you to handle and you want nothing more than to just sit or lay somewhere peacefully. You are quite literally sapped of energy.

    Socially Inept. This isn't being "shy", this interacting with a wall who has recently been reincarnated into a human being. The things you say to people are incomprehensible and things said to you might as well be in a whole different language. Unlike the irritability symptoms of sleep deprivation, you're fine with everyone around you and you don't even mind talking to people -- you just can't understand what they are saying nor can you communicate effectively with them.

    Note: If you're not real big talker or a "social butterfly" as its called, then this is one of those symptoms of sleep deprivation that you're bound to miss.

    If You Have Any Of These Symptoms, Then Consider Using This Natural Insomnia Cure Instead of OTC Sleep Aids. More Often Than Not, Regular Use of Sleeping Pills Worsen Insomnia Problems.

    Stress Cracker. Just as it says, this sign of sleep deprivation causes you to crack, fold, and just topple-over from any amount of stress or pressure. You feel like the whole world is on your shoulders and you can't solve any problem you are faced with. You feel, in a word, helpless.

    Memory Loss. You aren't brain damaged or anything, but the lack of sleep and severe sleep deprivation has definitely impaired your cognition. Seconds, minutes, or hours ago, it doesn't matter -- you just can't recollect anything specifically in your mind. Its more of a "hazy" memory rather than an all together non-existent one.

    Bad Concentration. One of the many signs of sleep deprivation that can seriously interfere in the work place. You just can't seem to focus on anything you're doing, no matter how inconsequential it may seem. Not only do you have poor focus and mental concentration, but your reaction time is slowed significantly as well. This is one of the more serious effects of insomnia as it literally has an affect on EVERYTHING you do.

    Strange Appetite Changes. This symptom of sleep deprivation will cause you to either be super hungry all the time or it'll make you not want to eat anything at all, ever. Whatever the case may be, it's definitely not a normal thing and you may wind up losing weight or even gaining weight depending on how long this period of sleep deprivation lasts.

    So, are these symptoms of sleep deprivation affecting you? If they are, then it's time to do something about it and treat your sleeplessness before it gets worse. These signs of sleep deprivation might not like seem like a big deal when they first appear, but don't be fooled, they can and WILL interfere with how you live your life.

    You can find more information about mosquitoes on the Ministry of Health website and also tips on how to avoid mosquito bites while travelling.

    Zika virus infection is notifiable in New Zealand as an arboviral disease.

    Guidance for health professionals (updated 24 July 2017)

    Pregnant women who become infected with Zika virus can transmit the disease to their unborn babies, with potentially serious consequences. Reports from several countries, most notably Brazil, demonstrate an increase in severe fetal birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes in babies whose mothers were infected with Zika virus while pregnant.

    We know that Zika virus infection during pregnancy is a cause of congenital microcephaly and other severe brain abnormalities. Zika virus has also been linked to other problems in pregnancies and among fetuses and infants infected before birth, such as miscarriage, stillbirth, and other birth defects.

    A distinct pattern of birth defects, called congenital Zika syndrome, has emerged among fetuses and infants of women infected with Zika during pregnancy. In addition to cognitive, sensory, and motor disabilities that are shared with other birth defects, congenital Zika syndrome is associated with five types of birth defects that are either not seen or occur rarely with other infections (eg, cytomegalovirus or rubella) during pregnancy:

    • severe microcephaly resulting in a partially collapsed skull
    • decreased brain tissue with brain damage (as indicated by a specific pattern of calcium deposits)
    • damage to the back of the eye with a specific pattern of scarring and increased pigment
    • limited range of joint motion, such as clubfoot
    • too much muscle tone restricting body movement soon after birth.

    Therefore, the Ministry of Health recommends that women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the near term should defer travel to areas with Zika virus present. If travel is essential, if possible delay pregnancy if travelling to these areas.

    If travelling in Zika-infected areas, women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant should consult with their health care provider. All travelers should take all precautions to avoid mosquito bites, including the following.

    • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants.
    • Use insect repellents containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), or IR3535. Always use as directed.
    • Insect repellents containing DEET, picaridin, and IR3535 are safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women and children older than 2 months when used according to the product label. Oil of lemon eucalyptus products should not be used on children under 3 years of age.
    • If you use both sunscreen and insect repellent, apply the sunscreen first and then the repellent.
    • Use permethrin-treated clothing and gear (such as boots, pants, socks, and tents).
    • Use bed nets as necessary.
    • Stay and sleep in screened-in or air-conditioned rooms.
    • Be particularly vigilant for the 2 hours after sunrise and the 2 hours before sunset.

    We also advise that women who have travelled to an affected country without their partner use appropriate contraception for eight weeks to avoid pregnancy. However, if the partner has also travelled to an affected country then see advice on sexual transmission of Zika virus.

    If you are pregnant and develop a rash, red eyes, fever, or joint pain within 14 days of travel to a Zika virus-infected country, please consult your health care provider and let them know your travel history.

    This information will be updated as more research becomes available.

    Zika virus is considered to be mainly spread by infected mosquitoes. However, there is growing information available about the risk of sexual transmission of Zika virus.

    Due to the potentially serious implications of transmitting Zika to a pregnant woman, we advise that:

    • All men who have travelled to a Zika-affected area and have a pregnant partner should abstain from sexual activity (oral, vaginal, and anal) or use condoms for the duration of the pregnancy, whether they have symptoms or not.
    • All men who have travelled to a Zika-affected area and have a partner who is at risk of becoming pregnant should abstain from sexual activity (oral, vaginal, and anal) or use condoms, whether they have symptoms or not, for at least six months after leaving a Zika-affected area.

    We will continue to review New Zealand guidance as further information becomes available.

    Although it may make you feel miserable, the common cold is usually a mild illness that goes away relatively quickly. On average, adults get two to four colds each year, and young children experience about twice that many.

    What Causes the Common Cold?

    When you get a cold, you've probably been infected by one of more than 200 different viruses. These viruses are easily spread through droplets of fluid from a cough, sneeze, or runny nose. Cold viruses often circulate by touch, but they can also be inhaled if they become airborne.

    People with colds are most contagious during the first few days after they have been infected with a virus. Spending a lot of time around other people indoors can help spread colds — a common occurrence for schoolchildren. Also, low humidity, as during the winter months, makes an ideal living environment for viruses.

    What Are Cold Symptoms?

    Cold symptoms usually develop one to three days after exposure to a virus. Symptoms may include:

    • Scratchy, sore throat
    • Sneezing and coughing
    • Runny nose or nasal congestion
    • Reduced sense of taste and smell
    • Fatigue
    • Headache
    • Fever up to 102 degrees Fahrenheit (more common in infants and young children)

    If you are continuously exhibiting some of these symptoms, this may be a sign of allergy rather than virus. Visit your doctor if you suspect allergies are the cause of your runny nose and watery eyes — allergy tests examine your body's reaction to common allergens to determine what may be causing your discomfort.

    Should You Call the Doctor?

    In most cases, you don't need to see a doctor when dealing with a cold. Call your doctor if you are experiencing:

    • Severe symptoms or symptoms that last for about two weeks
    • High fever
    • Severely swollen glands in your neck or jaw
    • Ear pain
    • Sinus headache
    • Fainting, dizziness, or confusion
    • Severe and persistent cough
    • Chest pain or pressure
    • Problems breathing
    • A sudden outburst of asthma or other pre-existing lung condition
    • Severe or continuous vomiting

    Children may exhibit additional symptoms that should be brought to a health care provider's attention. Call your doctor if the child has a cold and experiences a fever above 103 degrees Fahrenheit, bluish skin, behavioral changes, worsening of pre-existing conditions, vomiting, or abdominal pain.

    San Francisco, Calif.: Does the release of Tamiflu from U.S. stockpiles have any affect for the average citizen here? Is it now easily available?

    Richard Wenzel: This is an effective anti-influenza drug, especially in preventing infection among exposed, but not ill people. It also has a modest effect in treatment. The drug is available.

    Pork: Does swine flu have anything to do with eating tainted pork products?

    Richard Wenzel: No. There is no risk of swine flu from eating appropriately cooked pork.

    Anonymous: Thanks for taking the question. My family and I recently visited Cancun for spring break. My husband had felt achy, chilled and fatigued after returning home however had no sig cough. He has since improved however remains tired. Everyone else is fine. Any cause for concern?

    Richard Wenzel: This is a difficult question. Approximately 20% of people have general fatigue after some infections like mononucleosis of cytomegalovirus and sometimes after influenza. It would be best to have a checkup with your physician.

    Washington, D.C.: I heard that the Swine Flu is suppose to hit the Washington Area hard. Is this true and what can we do to protect ourselves?

    Richard Wenzel: No one knows what cities will be hit, or how hard the virus will be. Because Washington, DC is an international city the chances of bringing infections from other countries and other cities is great. At this point, you should be alert to the degree of infections in your own city, report to a physician with respiratory infections and maintain careful hand washing. Despite the custom of handshaking, it is reasonable to avoid that custom for the time being.

    Baltimore, Md.: I've read that this flu has disproportionately hit healthy young adults instead of children and elderly people. Any thoughts on why?

    And do you think we will be raised to a WHO Phase 4 or 5 at this point?

    Richard Wenzel: It is likely that people over age 60 have some cross reacting antibody from prior infection with a related virus in years past. This remains to be proved. Thus, young adults are disproportionately infected.

    I am surprised that WHO did not already call this a level 4.
