Symptoms of toxic shock
Symptoms of toxic shock develop rapidly and rapidly. And all this is so fleeting that within 2 days death may come.
The first signs of "disease" include extremely serious consequences. So, there are feelings that are similar to the flu. It starts with muscle pain, stomach cramps, headache and sore throat. Suddenly, the temperature can rise to 38.9. Vomiting and diarrhea are not excluded.
Over time, there are signs of shock. They are characterized by low blood pressure and heart palpitations. Often all this is accompanied by dizziness, loss of consciousness, nausea, vomiting or dysphoria and confusion of consciousness. It is possible that redness, which is similar to sunburn. It can appear in several parts of the body or in separate places. Basically it is armpits or in the groin. At the site of infection there is severe pain. Redness of the nasal passages and mouth is observed.
Other symptoms include: conjunctivitis, blood poisoning, skin tissue peeling and death of skin tissue. That is why toxic shock carries an extreme danger to humans.
Infectious toxic shock is a sharp drop in blood pressure. It occurs against the backdrop of the negative effects of toxic substances that are produced by viruses or bacteria.
This species is often called septic shock, bacteriotoxic shock, or endotoxic shock. This is an extremely nonspecific clinical syndrome. It occurs mainly in a number of infectious diseases due to metabolic, neuroregulatory and hemodynamic disorders caused by bacteremia (viremia) and toxemia.
Often it occurs against the background of meningococcal infection, influenza, fever, abdominal and typhus, diphtheria, salmonellosis, dysentery and other dangerous infections. The mechanism of pathogenic disorders in this case is determined by the type of pathogen, the nature of the treatment, the intensity of the pathological processes in the body (organ), their degree and other parameters. Toxic shock is a serious disorder in the body.
Toxic shock syndrome
The toxic shock syndrome is a relatively rare disease. It is characterized by a sharp beginning. All this entails serious consequences for human life. This syndrome is able to quickly progress. Therefore, first aid measures should be carried out immediately.
There is a toxic shock syndrome on the background of infection with staphylococci and streptococci. Under normal conditions, they do not bother the person in any way. But for certain phenomena, they can release toxins that enter the bloodstream and lead to severe inflammatory reactions.
The reaction of the immune system leads to phenomena that are characteristic of the toxic shock syndrome. The streptococcal variety of "disease" is characteristic in the postpartum period, with complications after the acute respiratory disease, as well as in skin lesions.
Staphylococcal syndrome appears due to a forgotten tampon in the vagina. Therefore, you need to carefully monitor your own health. Because toxic shock is extremely negative for the body.
Toxic shock from tampons
Toxic shock from tampons can be caused by a staphylococcal infection. This is mainly due to a forgotten tampon in the vagina. The disease can quickly progress and lead to serious consequences. In some cases, eliminating negative symptoms is not so simple, and sometimes just impossible. A lethal outcome is observed in 8-16% of cases.
Often, this syndrome occurs in women aged 15-30 years. Naturally, this is due to the use of tampons during critical days. There were also cases when the syndrome appeared in women who prefer vaginal contraceptives.
The development of the disease is provoked by Staphylococcus aureus. These microorganisms are always in the mouth, nose, vagina and on the skin. Under adverse conditions, they cause serious damage to the body. A special danger is observed if the woman has a birth injury, irritation or scratches in the vagina.
It is necessary to understand that the toxic shock develops much more rapidly than the flu. Therefore, a sharp increase in body temperature and vomiting, should cause a woman's anxiety. Toxic shock requires emergency care.
Bacterial Toxic Shock
Bacterial toxic shock is also sometimes called septic shock. It can complicate the course of sepsis in any stage of its development. This phenomenon is a modified reaction of the body to the breakthrough into the blood of pyogenic microorganisms or their toxins.
It appears as a high temperature, sometimes it reaches 40-41 degrees. In this case, there is a tremendous chill, for which a strong sweating is characteristic. It is possible that the temperature drops to normal or subfebrile, due to severe sweating.
The mental state changes dramatically. A person feels anxiety, motor excitement, and in some cases, psychosis. These symptoms manifest themselves simultaneously with the fall of blood pressure, and oliguria or even preceding them. The pulse is frequent and reaches 120-10 beats per minute. The skin becomes pale, acrocyanosis is noted, and breathing is quickened. Urinary excretion is violated. Toxic shock requires immediate elimination.

Infectious Toxic Shock in Pneumonia
Infectious toxic shock in pneumonia is a special disease. It is characterized by the defeat of the alveoli (thin-walled vesicles that saturate the blood with oxygen). The cause of this phenomenon may be a number of pathogens. Basically it is: intracellular parasites, fungi, bacteria and viruses.
Different kinds of pneumonia have their own peculiarities. Often it can develop against the background of the transferred diseases, in the form of complications. Infectious toxic shock is a very serious complication. Most often it occurs against a background of bilateral inflammation of the lungs.
A toxic shock also develops in severe pneumonia, which is characterized by severe pulmonary tissue infiltration. The beginning complication can be determined by early signs. So, there is inhibition or anxiety. Usually these symptoms do not attract attention, which leads to a worsening of the situation. Over time, there is shortness of breath, tachycardia, and the pallor of the limbs is also possible. The skin becomes dry and warm. Toxic shock requires immediate elimination.
Infectious Toxic Shock in Children
Infectious toxic shock in children is a serious and dangerous condition. Caused it can be a complex infectious disease. The reason for this phenomenon lies in the ingress of microorganisms into the blood and the toxins released by them in the course of vital activity.
Toxins actively develop in the body and lead to spasms of small vessels and capillaries. Basically, in children this phenomenon occurs against the background of scarlet fever, diphtheria, dysentery and meningococcal infection. Everything is actively developing in the first day. At the same time there is a sharp increase in temperature, up to 41 degrees.
The condition of the child remains extremely difficult. He has a headache, vomiting, severe chills, convulsions and confusion. The pulse weakens, the heart begins to beat harder. Pallor of mucous membranes and skin is observed, strong sweating is not excluded.
Infectious toxic shock in a baby can develop against the background of infection through an abrasion or cut. Children should be warned against this and in time to treat the wounds with a special antiseptic. If you have negative symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor. Self-medication in this case is inappropriate! If the toxic shock does not begin to be corrected correctly, then the lethal outcome is not ruled out.
