Summer misfortunes of

That summer vacation did the kid good and brought the mass of pleasant impressions, we will arm with knowledge of those troubles which can spoil them. For example, the risk increases in the summer to ache with intestinal infections which constitute big danger to children. How to warn them, and was in case of need able to give help, we also will talk.

What they?

Intestinal infections - big group of diseases, which activators - bacteria and viruses. As a result of their hit in an organism in one or several departments zheludochno - an intestinal path inflammatory process begins. A heat - the most favorable weather for growth and reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms. Others such infections as dysentery, salmonellosis, esherikhioz meet in the summer more often, campylobacteriosis, is more rare - iyersinioz.

As can catch


All intestinal infections can call

“diseases of dirty hands“ because they are transmitted from the patient with intestinal infection of the person to the healthy kid, as a rule, through dirty hands or objects (for example, toys, ware).

At the same time in the summer kids catch

through the water, products which are “rendered habitable“ by pathogenic microbes more often. For example, dysentery can begin if to drink unboiled water, not boiled milk (we will tell, pair) or to eat products from it (curdled milk, cottage cheese, sour cream), and also dirty fruit, berries, vegetables. The intestinal infection caused by escherichias (colibacilli E, coli) most often begins from - for low-quality acidified milk formulas - kefir, yogurts. And causing an illness staphylococcus in warm time especially actively breed in creams and cakes that leads to developing of such illness as a food toksikoinfektion. Causative agents of salmonellosis (and them about 400 types are known) get to the person through any infected products: chicken meat and eggs, boiled sausage, sausages which are badly washed out or vegetables and greens which are washed up by dirty water. Happens and so that pets, birds or rodents become carriers of salmonellas. Responsible for development of campylobacteriosis “lives“ in pair goat milk (the microbe perishes, only if to boil it), salmonellas of group D (Enteritidis) - in intestines of hens and their eggs. Are carried to Iyersiniya by the rodents who “walked“ on the vegetables and fruit which are stored in a cellar.

In all these cases of a bacterium get to children in case parents are negligent in processing and storage of these products.

can Ache with

and having drunk the unboiled infected water or having bathed in a reservoir of doubtful purity. Thus Fleksner`s dysentery and an enteroviral infection is transmitted. In areas with hot climate (the Volga region, Central Asia) through water also much more dangerous intestinal infections can extend: cholera and typhoid.
