What does the infectionist do?
Infections lie in wait for us everywhere. Even on a brand new toothbrush, after several uses, all kinds of harmful microorganisms swarm. By the way, recently scientists have found out that soap for hands in a bar is the dirtiest thing in the whole house.
Our immunity basically successfully fights against all sorts of microorganisms and bacteria that "attack" our body. But if immunity is not maintained and does not adhere to the basic rules of personal hygiene, he can no longer resist these "attacks". Many of the symptoms of infectious diseases are very similar and it is the infectious disease doctor who "understands" which bacteria and what disease they provoked.
The sphere of activity of the infectious diseasesist can be divided into several parts:
- Infectious diseases of the intestine.
- Infections of the respiratory system.
- Skin infectious diseases.
- Various infectious diseases of the blood.
When contacting an infectious disease specialist, it is important to remember whether you have contacted people who might be infected with infectious diseases, and also prepare your medical card.
What diseases are treated by an infectious disease specialist?
The full list of diseases on which an infectious disease specialist specializes is quite extensive. But, having carried out the analysis of diseases it is possible to single out the most widespread, more precisely those with which we are most often confronted, and as a result also doctors-infectionists.
Such diseases include infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract: dysentery, salmonellosis, botulism, ascariasis, trichocephalosis.
"Air" infections: chicken pox, rubella, measles, influenza, etc. And also such diseases as polio, scarlet fever, whooping cough and many others.
The infectious disease doctor's competence also includes more dangerous infectious diseases such as rabies, plague, malaria and typhus. Of course, most often infectious diseases have to face such diseases as influenza and ARI.
Since infections can affect all human organs, an infectious disease specialist can prescribe additional examinations from other specialists, analyzes and crops on the flora. Also, biochemical blood analysis is needed to determine the disease.
