2009 H1N1 Flu (“Swine Flu”) – and you

What is 2009 H1N1 (swine flu)?

2009 H1N1 (sometimes called “swine flu”) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. This virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that a pandemic of 2009 H1N1 flu was underway.

Why is the 2009 H1N1 virus sometimes called “swine flu”?

This virus was originally referred to as “swine flu” because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in the virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs (swine) in North America. But further study has shown that the 2009 H1N1 is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs. It has two genes from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and bird (avian) genes and human genes. Scientists call this a “quadruple reassortant” virus.

2009 H1N1 Flu in Humans

Is the 2009 H1N1 virus contagious?

The 2009 H1N1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human.

How does the 2009 H1N1 virus spread?

Spread of the 2009 H1N1 virus is thought to occur in the same way  that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing, sneezing or talking by people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something – such as a surface or object – with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

Can I get 2009 H1N1 more than once?

Getting infected with any influenza virus, including 2009 H1N1, should cause your body to develop immune resistance to that virus so it’s not likely that a person would be infected with the identical influenza virus more than once. (However, people with weakened immune systems might not develop full immunity after infection and might be more likely to get infected with the same influenza virus more than once.) However, it’s also possible that a person could have a positive test result for flu infection more than once in an influenza season. This can occur for two reasons:

  1. A person may be infected with different influenza viruses (for example, the first time with 2009 H1N1 and the second time with a regular seasonal flu virus. Most rapid tests cannot distinguish which influenza virus is responsible for the illness. And,
  2. Influenza tests can occasionally give false positive and false negative results so it’s possible that one of the test results were incorrect. This is more likely to happen when the diagnosis is made with the rapid flu tests. More information about flu diagnosis is available.

What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people?

The symptoms of 2009 H1N1 flu virus in people include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu, including 2009 H1N1 and have respiratory symptoms without a fever. Severe illnesses and deaths have occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus.

How severe is illness associated with 2009 H1N1 flu virus?

Illness with 2009 H1N1 virus has ranged from mild to severe. While most people who have been sick have recovered without needing medical treatment, hospitalizations and deaths from infection with this virus have occurred.

In seasonal flu, certain people are at “high risk” of serious complications. This includes people 65 years and older, children younger than five years old, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions. More than 70 percent of adults who have been hospitalized with the 2009 H1N1 virus have had one or more medical conditions previously recognized as placing people at “higher risk” of serious seasonal flu-related complications. This includes pregnancy, diabetes, heart disease, asthma and kidney disease. In one study, fifty-seven percent of children who had been hospitalized as a result of 2009 H1N1 have had one or more “higher risk” medical conditions.

Young children are also at high risk of serious complications from 2009 H1N1, just as they are from seasonal flu. And while people 65 and older are less likely to be infected with 2009 H1N1 flu, if they get sick, they are also at “high risk” of developing serious complications from their illness.

CDC laboratory studies have shown that no children and very few adults younger than 60 years old have existing antibody to the 2009 H1N1 flu virus; however, about one-third of adults older than 60 may have antibodies against this virus. It is unknown how much, if any, protection may be afforded against 2009 H1N1 flu by any existing antibody.

Who is at higher risk from serious 2009 H1N1 related complications?

Most people who get the flu (either seasonal or 2009 H1N1) will have mild illness, will not need medical care or antiviral drugs, and will recover in less than two weeks.  Some people, however, are more likely to get flu complications that result in being hospitalized and occasionally result in death. Pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections and ear infections are examples of flu-related complications. The flu can also make chronic health problems worse. For example, people with asthma may experience asthma attacks while they have the flu, and people with chronic congestive heart failure may have worsening of this condition that is triggered by the flu.  The list below includes the groups of people more likely to get flu-related complications if they get sick from influenza.

People at High Risk for Developing Flu-Related Complications

  • Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old
  • Adults 65 years of age and older
  • Pregnant women

People who have medical conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Neurological and neurodevelopmental conditions [including disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerve, and muscle such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy (seizure disorders), stroke, intellectual disability (mental retardation), moderate to severe developmental delay, muscular dystrophy, or spinal cord injury].
  • Chronic  lung disease   (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease  [COPD] and cystic fibrosis)
  • Heart disease (such as congenital heart disease, congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease)
  • Blood disorders (such as sickle cell disease)
  • Endocrine disorders (such as diabetes mellitus)
  • Kidney disorders
  • Liver disorders
  • Metabolic disorders (such as inherited metabolic disorders and mitochondrial disorders)
  • Weakened immune system due to disease or medication (such as people with HIV or AIDS, or cancer, or those on chronic steroids)
  • People younger than 19 years of age who are receiving long-term aspirin therapy

In addition, some studies have shown that obese persons (body mass index ≥30) and particularly morbidly obese persons (body mass index ≥40) are at higher risk, perhaps because they have one of the higher risk conditions above but do not realize it.

How does 2009 H1N1 flu compare to seasonal flu in terms of its severity and infection rates?

Flu seasons vary in terms of timing, duration and severity. Seasonal influenza can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Each year, in the United States, on average 36,000 people die from flu-related complications and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related causes. Of those hospitalized, 20,000 are children younger than 5 years old. More than 90% of deaths and about 60 percent of hospitalization occur in people older than 65.

CDC estimates of the numbers of 2009 H1N1 cases, hospitalizations and deaths are that people younger than 65 years of age are more severely affected by 2009 H1N1 flu relative to people 65 and older compared with seasonal flu. CDC estimates that with 2009 H1N1, approximately 90% of hospitalizations and 88% of estimated deaths from April through December 12, 2009 occurred in people younger than 65 years old. However, because severe illness and deaths have occurred among people 65 and older and because supplies of 2009 H1N1 vaccine have increased dramatically, CDC is now encouraging all people 6 months and older, including people older than 65, to get vaccinated against 2009 H1N1.

How long can an infected person spread this virus to others?

People infected with seasonal and 2009 H1N1 flu shed virus and may be able to infect others from 1 day before getting sick to 5 to 7 days after. This can be longer in some people, especially children and people with weakened immune systems and in people infected with 2009 H1N1 viruses.

Prevention & Treatment

What can I do to protect myself from getting sick?

This season, there is a seasonal flu vaccine to protect against seasonal flu viruses and a 2009 H1N1 vaccine to protect against the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus (sometimes called “swine flu”). A flu vaccine is by far the most important step in protecting against flu infection. For information about the 2009 H1N1 vaccines, visit H1N1 Flu Vaccination Resources. For information about seasonal influenza vaccines, visit Preventing Seasonal Flu With Vaccination.

There are also everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like the flu.

Take these everyday steps to protect your health:

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.*
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

Other important actions that you can take are:

  • Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
  • Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so; a supply of over-the-counter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs (for when soap and water are not available), tissues and other related items could help you to avoid the need to make trips out in public while you are sick and contagious.

What is the best way to keep from spreading the virus through coughing or sneezing?

If you are sick with flu-like illness, your doctor in Avsallar, Oba , Alanya recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.
Keep away from others as much as possible. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Put your used tissue in the waste basket. Then, clean your hands, and do so every time you cough or sneeze.

If I have a family member at home who is sick with 2009 H1N1 flu, should I go to work?

Employees who are well but who have an ill family member at home with 2009 H1N1 flu can go to work as usual. These employees should monitor their health every day, and take everyday precautions including covering their coughs and sneezes and washing their hands often with soap and water, especially after they cough or sneeze. If soap and water are not available, they should use an alcohol-based hand rub.* If they become ill, they should notify their supervisor and stay home. Employees who have an underlying medical condition or who are pregnant should call their health care provider for advice, because they might need to receive influenza antiviral drugs.

What is the best technique for washing my hands to avoid getting the flu?

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. CDC recommends that when you wash your hands — with soap and warm water — that you wash for 15 to 20 seconds. When soap and water are not available, alcohol-based disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers may be used.* You can find them in most supermarkets and drugstores. If using gel, rub your hands until the gel is dry. The gel doesn’t need water to work; the alcohol in it kills the germs on your hands.

What should I do if I have a fever? 

Fever can be one of the symptoms of a flu-like illness for many people. A fever is an oral temperature of at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees Celsius). Signs of a fever include chills, a flushed appearance, feeling very warm, or sweating.

Fever-reducing medicines typically contain acetaminophen (such as Tylenol) or ibuprofen (such as Motrin). These medicines can both help bring fever down and relieve pain. Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid)should not be given to children or teenagers (anyone aged 18 years and younger) who have flu; this can cause a rare but serious illness called Reye’s syndrome.

To help avoid spreading the flu, if you have a fever, stay at home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or signs of a fever. However, if you’re taking fever-reducing medicines, you cannot tell if your fever is truly gone. Therefore, when you start to feel better, increase the interval between doses of fever-reducing medicines and continue to monitor your temperature to make sure your fever does not return.

What are “emergency warning signs” that should signal anyone to seek medical care urgently?

In children:

  • Fast breathing or trouble breathing
  • Bluish skin color
  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • Not waking up or not interacting
  • Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
  • Fever with a rash

In adults:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  • Sudden dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough

Are there medicines to treat 2009 H1N1 infection?

Yes. There are drugs your doctor may prescribe for treating both seasonal and 2009 H1N1 called “antiviral drugs.” These drugs can make you better faster and may also prevent serious complications. It’s very important that antiviral drugs be used early to treat flu in people who are very sick (for example people who are in the hospital) and people who are sick with flu and have a greater chance of getting serious flu complications .Other people may also be treated with antiviral drugs by their doctor this season. Most healthy people with flu, however, do not need to be treated with antiviral drugs.

What is CDC’s recommendation regarding “swine flu parties”?

“Swine flu parties” are gatherings during which people have close contact with a person who has 2009 H1N1 flu in order to become infected with the virus. The intent of these parties is for a person to become infected with what for many people has been a mild disease, in the hope of having natural immunity 2009 H1N1 flu virus that might circulate later and cause more severe disease.

CDC does not recommend “swine flu parties” as a way to protect against 2009 H1N1 flu in the future. While the disease seen in the current 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak has been mild for many people, it has been severe and even fatal for others. There is no way to predict with certainty what the outcome will be for an individual or, equally important, for others to whom the intentionally infected person may spread the virus. Vaccination against 2009 H1N1 with a 2009 H1N1 vaccine is the best way to protect against this virus. Supplies of 2009 H1N1 vaccine are ample and CDC is now recommending that everyone get vaccinated.

CDC recommends that people with 2009 H1N1 flu avoid contact with others as much as possible. If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.) Stay away from others as much as possible to keep from making others sick.

Contamination & Cleaning

How long can influenza virus remain viable on objects (such as books and doorknobs)?

Studies have shown that influenza virus can survive on environmental surfaces and can infect a person for 2 to 8 hours after being deposited on the surface.

What kills influenza virus?

Influenza virus is destroyed by heat [75-100°C]). In addition, several chemical germicides, including chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, detergents (soap), iodophors (iodine-based antiseptics), and alcohols are effective against human influenza viruses if used in proper concentration for a sufficient length of time.

*What if soap and water are not available and alcohol-based products are not allowed in my facility?

If soap and water are not available and alcohol-based products are not allowed, other hand sanitizers that do not contain alcohol may be useful.

What surfaces are most likely to be sources of contamination?

Germs can be spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. Droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person move through the air. Germs can be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets from another person on a surface like a desk, for example, and then touches their own eyes, mouth or nose before washing their hands.

How should waste disposal be handled to prevent the spread of influenza virus?

To prevent the spread of influenza virus, it is recommended that tissues and other disposable items used by an infected person be thrown in the trash. Additionally, persons should wash their hands with soap and water after touching used tissues and similar waste.

What household cleaning should be done to prevent the spread of influenza virus?

To prevent the spread of influenza virus it is important to keep surfaces (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant according to directions on the product label.

How should linens, eating utensils and dishes of persons infected with influenza virus be handled?

Linens, eating utensils, and dishes belonging to those who are sick do not need to be cleaned separately, but importantly these items should not be shared without washing thoroughly first.
Linens (such as bed sheets and towels) should be washed by using household laundry soap and tumbled dry on a hot setting. Individuals should avoid “hugging” laundry prior to washing it to prevent contaminating themselves. Individuals should wash their hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub immediately after handling dirty laundry.

Eating utensils should be washed either in a dishwasher or by hand with water and soap.

Exposures Not Thought to Spread 2009 H1N1 Flu

Can I get infected with 2009 H1N1 virus from eating or preparing pork?

No. 2009 H1N1 viruses are not spread by food. You cannot get infected with 2009 HIN1 from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly handled and cooked pork products is safe.

Is there a risk from drinking water?

Tap water that has been treated by conventional disinfection processes does not likely pose a risk for transmission of influenza viruses. Current drinking water treatment regulations provide a high degree of protection from viruses. No research has been completed on the susceptibility of 2009 H1N1 flu virus to conventional drinking water treatment processes. However, recent studies have demonstrated that free chlorine levels typically used in drinking water treatment are adequate to inactivate highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza. It is likely that other influenza viruses such as 2009 H1N1 would also be similarly inactivated by chlorination. To date, there have been no documented human cases of influenza caused by exposure to influenza-contaminated drinking water.

Can 2009 H1N1 flu virus be spread through water in swimming pools, spas, water parks, interactive fountains, and other treated recreational water venues?

Influenza viruses infect the human upper respiratory tract. There has never been a documented case of influenza virus infection associated with water exposure. Recreational water that has been treated at CDC recommended disinfectant levels does not likely pose a risk for transmission of influenza viruses. No research has been completed on the susceptibility of 2009 H1N1 influenza virus to chlorine and other disinfectants used in swimming pools, spas, water parks, interactive fountains, and other treated recreational venues. However, recent studies have demonstrated that free chlorine levels recommended by CDC (1–3 parts per million [ppm or mg/L] for pools and 2–5 ppm for spas) are adequate to disinfect avian influenza A (H5N1) virus. It is likely that other influenza viruses such as 2009 H1N1 virus would also be similarly disinfected by chlorine.

Can 2009 H1N1 influenza virus be spread at recreational water venues outside of the water?

Yes, recreational water venues are no different than any other group setting. The spread of this 2009 H1N1 flu is thought to be happening in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

2009 H1N1 in Pets

What animals can be infected with the 2009 H1N1 virus?

In addition to humans, live swine and turkeys, a small number of ferrets (which are highly susceptible to influenza A viruses),  domestic cats and dogs have been infected with 2009 H1N1 virus.  In addition, 2009 H1N1 virus infection was reported in a cheetah in the United States. CDC is working closely with domestic and international public and animal health partners to continually monitor reports of 2009 H1N1 in animals and will provide additional information to the public as it becomes available.

How do pets become infected with 2009 H1N1?

All available information suggests that the ferrets and domestic cats infected with 2009 H1N1 infections acquired the virus through close contact with ill humans.
Can I get 2009 H1N1 influenza from my pet?

Available evidence suggests that transmission has been from ill humans to their companion animals. No evidence is available to suggest that animals are infecting humans with 2009 H1N1 virus.
What do I do if I am sick with flu-like symptoms and I have pets?

If you are sick with influenza-like-illness, take the same precautions with your pets that you would to keep your family and friends healthy:

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Minimize contact with your pets until 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever reducing medication

What should I do if I suspect my pet has 2009 H1N1 influenza virus?

If members of your household have flu-like symptoms, and your pet exhibits respiratory illness, contact your veterinarian.
Is there a vaccine available for my pet?

Currently, there is not a licensed and approved 2009 H1N1 vaccine for pets. (There is a canine influenza vaccine, which protects dogs from the H3N8 canine flu virus, but it will not protect pets against the 2009 H1N1 virus, and the H3N8 vaccine should not be used in any species other than dogs.)
How serious is this disease in pets?

Pet ferrets with naturally occurring 2009 H1N1 infection have exhibited illness similar in severity to that seen in ferrets exposed to seasonal influenza viruses and to 2009 H1N1 virus in laboratory settings.  Clinical signs exhibited have included sneezing, inactivity, and weight loss.  Of the reported cases, most of the pets have recovered fully with supportive care, although some have died.

SUN STROKE(HEAT STROKE): 

Heat stroke, also known as sunstroke, is a serious medical condition, a medical emergency, when the body’s temperature rises too high as a result of excessive heat exposure. The body loses its ability to cool itself and overheats.

When a person’s body temperature is higher than 40.6°C and this is caused by environmental heat exposure with poor thermoregulation (temperature control), they have a heat stroke.

Heat stroke is not a fever, where the body deliberately raises its temperature in response to, for example an infection.

There are three levels of heat emergencies – heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke, with heat stroke being the most severe and life-threatening.

The signs and symptoms :

What is the difference between a sign and a symptom? A symptom is felt by the patient and described to those around him or her, for example pain. A sign can be detected by others, for example, a skin rash.

Unlike the symptoms of heat exhaustion, which can develop rapidly, heat stroke signs and symptoms generally develop over several days, especially among elderly individuals and people with chronic health problems.

Heatstroke can develop rapidly in severe conditions and situations with extreme physical exertion (exertional heatstroke), especially if the person becomes dehydrated. Exertional heat stroke tends to affect young, physically active people more than sedentary or older individuals.

The signs and symptoms of heat stroke may include:

A high temperature – temperature higher than 104°F (40°C). Heat stroke may be diagnosed at lower temperatures. Also, some people may reach these temperatures and never develop heatstroke.
Profuse sweating that abruptly stops – when the body cannot sweat any more, as may happen in cases of severe dehydration, the skin will become dry. Without perspiration the body has no way of cooling itself.
Accelerated (weak) heartbeat.
Hyperventilation. – rapid breathing, shallow panting.
Muscle cramps.
The skin becomes hot, dry and red.
Nausea.
Vomiting.
Dark urine.

As the nervous system becomes affected, the following symptoms may emerge:
Confusion

Coordination problems

Seizures (fits)

Headache

Vertigo, dizziness, lightheadedness – a sensation of spinning or moving when standing (vertigo)

Anxiety

Restlessness

Hallucinations

Irrational behavior

Loss of consciousness.

If you think somebody has heat stroke, call the emergency medical services. The numbers are: +905323365634,+902425653834

ALANYA-DOCTOR-ALANYA-ARZT

What are the causes of a heat stroke?

When the body is unable to cool itself and it begins to overheat, heat stroke is a likely complication.

The human body controls its core temperature (body temperature) by maintaining a tight balance between heat gain and heat loss.

While we are resting normal core temperature ranges between 36.5°C and 37.5°C .The hypothalamus, a part of the brain, regulates our core temperature. The hypothalamus is sometimes called the body’s thermostat.

There are several temperature receptors located in different parts of the body, to which the hypothalamus responds by making physiological adjustments to make sure the core temperature is constant. For example, temperature receptors in the skin tell the hypothalamus it is hot, which tells the sweat glands to produce more sweat.

When we do exercise, thermoregulation (temperature control) is a continuous challenge. Metabolism produces heat. The human body is not that efficient – 75% of our energy is lost in heat. During exercise, our core temperature can rise rapidly.

Our bodies have several ways of maintaining thermoregulation.

The human body can be cooled down in the following ways:

Radiation – heat radiates out of our body in the same way it radiates our of a fire.

Convection – when cool air or water crosses the skin the body is cooled.

Conduction – an object that is at a lower temperatures than our body temperature comes into direct contact with our skin – it conducts (draws out) heat from our body.

Evaporation – our bodies produce sweat, as the sweat evaporates it takes body heat with it.

Sweating

The normal temperature of the skin is 32°C -34°C. Any outside temperature above those ranges will result in the skin producing more sweat to cool the body down.

The following situations, can undermine the body’s ability to thermoregulate through sweating:

Dehydration – excessive loss of water from the body.

Wrong clothing – for sweat to evaporate and take heat with it, the skin must have contact with air. Tight clothing undermines sweat’s ability to evaporate, so the body cannot cool down properly.

High humidity – the higher the atmospheric humidity, the slower water evaporates. In other words, when it is humid sweating is less effective in cooling down the body. The problem is compounded if it is very humid and there is no breeze.

The two types of heatstroke, which tend to affect different population groups, are:

Classic heat stroke – more likely to occur during a heat wave or very hot weather. Babies, seniors and patients with chronic health conditions are more susceptible to classic heat stroke than the rest of the population.

The hypothalamus in elderly individuals and those with chronic conditions and illnesses does not work as well as it should in regulating body temperature.

Babies sweat less than older people, they are also more vulnerable to the effects of dehydration.

Exertional heat stroke – occurs as a result of physical exertion, strenuous and sustained exercise in a hot environment. Exertional heat stroke tends to affect younger people more, especially athletes, firefighters and military personnel.

Medications that raise the risk of heat stroke

Several medications can affect how the body regulates its core temperature, thus increasing the risk of heat stroke.For medication please call doctor in Alanya konaklimedical +905323365634 or visit alanyadoctorcall.com.

Insect and Spider Bites and Stings

What to do if you get bit?

  • If you get bit from these insects, remain as calm and quiet as possible. Agitated motion will increase the spread of venom in the bloodstream.
  • If you have been stung by a bee and the stinger is still in the skin, remove the stinger.
  • For stings or bites on the arm or leg, lower the limb at the time of the incident to slow the spread of venom. If swelling is present, elevate the limb and ice the area to help reduce swelling.
  • Some people can suffer from severe allergic reactions due to insect bites. Call the doctor for Konakli, Avsallar, Okurcalar, Oba, Alanya (24 hours – 00905323365634 – Emergency via Whatsapp or Viber also free) if symptoms include difficulty in breathing, swelling of lips, tongue, eyelids and mucous membranes, light-headedness, nausea, and hives. These reactions can be serious and require immediate medical care!

Stiche und Bisse von Insekten oder Spinnen

Was ist zu tun, wenn Sie gebissen wurden?

  • Wenn Sie von diesen Tieren gebissen wurden, bleiben Sie so ruhig wie möglich. Hektische Bewegungen verstärken die Ausbreitung des Giftes in den Blutbahnen.
  • Wenn Sie von einer Biene gestochen wurden und der Stachel noch in der Haut steckt, entfernen Sie diesen.
  • Bei Stichen oder Bissen in den Armen oder Beinen senken Sie diese, um die Ausbreitung des Giftes in die Blutbahn zu verlangsamen. Bei Schwellungen lagern Sie die betroffene Region hoch und kühlen Sie sie mit Eis, um die Schwellung zu reduzieren.
  • Manche Menschen reagieren allergisch auf gewisse Insektenstiche. Rufen Sie schnellstmöglich den Arzt für Konakli, Avsallar, Okurcalar, Oba und Alanya (rund um die Uhr – 0090 532 336 56 34 – auch über WhatsApp und Viber verfügbar). Symptome dafür sind zum Beispiel Atembeschwerden, geschwollene Lippen, Augenlider, Schleimhäute oder Zunge, Benommenheit, Übelkeit oder Ausschläge. Diese Reaktionen können gefährlich werden und erfordern unverzüglich medizinische Hilfe!

SUMMER GASTROENTERİTİS

In the hot months or travelling to tropical towns like alanya,konakli,antalya,oba,avsallar,okurcalar gastroenteritis problems come up with a certain frequency in small children. The symptoms include abdominal colic, which can make the child not feel well and be agitated like with gas colic, liquid diarrhea with several bowel movements during the day, vomit, paleness and even fever. The causes of the discomfort can be various ones. It could be a strong sudden chill on his belly, maybe caused by a sudden temperature change. In the summer there are many malls and stores that keep their air-conditioning at almost polar temperatures. So it is important to always take a jumper to protect the child’s belly, if you decide to take the child in a place like this. What causes the symptoms, though, could also be his eating: a food excess or some food that was not kept well. Gastroenteritis can, at last, also be linked to a viral infection. Rotavirus, for example, is a micro organism that often causes forms of gastroenteritis in smaller children and that today can be avoided thanks to a specific vaccination. The doctor in konakli alanya oba avsallar will be able to inform you in a better way.

When the symptoms begin you can take some action to ease the child’s well-being and a quicker recovery. If you are breastfeeding, you can continue with no problem: your milk will contribute to mitigate the discomfort through the antibodies that it contains as well as through hydration. Formula, on the contrary, should be suspended for a couple of days, until symptoms are better. The proteins from the cow milk that they are made of, can in fact delay recovery. In any case it is preferable before taking any initiatives, to ask your doctor in alanya , what to do. In alternative to milk, the doctor (Alanya,konakli,oba,avsallar)could suggest to prepare a vegetable broth, which has properties that are slightly astringent to favour improvement in the diarrhea. In case of vomit, it could be difficult to feed the baby. In this case the doctor’s opinion is necessary. To avoid nausea and so the risk of gagging, if the child is still breastfeeding, you can let him suck for a few seconds and then take him off. In this way the child will take small quantities of milk at a time. It is important that our child takes in liquids to maintain the organism well hydrated. So you can simply give him water with special solutions made of hydrating salts, prescribed by the doctor, to dilute in his bottle and give to him in small sips, maybe even with a spoon. If the child shows to be lively and reactive despite his malaise and he regularly wets his nappy, we can relax. This is the sign that the discomfort will pass soon.

SOMMERKRANKHEIT: MAGEN-DARM-GRIPPE

In den Sommermonaten oder bei Reisen in warme Gebiete wie Alanya, Oba, Konakli und Umgebung tritt gerade bei kleinen Kindern häufig eine Magen-Darm-Grippe auf. Die Symptome sind Bauchkrämpfe, begleitet von Durchfall und Erbrechen, Übelkeit und manchmal sogar Fieber. Die Ursachen dafür sind verschieden. Plötzliche Temperaturwechsel, wenn Sie bei heißem Wetter in klimatisierte Geschäfte gehen, können eine Magen-Darm-Grippe auslösen. Daher ist es wichtig, gerade für Kinder immer einen Pullover oder eine Jacke dabei zu haben, um sie vor der Kälte zu schützen. Andere Gründe für eine Magen-Darm-Infektion können auch falsche Essgewohnheiten, verdorbene Nahrungsmittel oder eine Virusinfektion. Rotaviren zum Beispiel sind die häufigste Ursache von Durchfall bei Säuglingen und Kleinkindern. Übertragen wird das Virus über Fäkalien oder verseuchtes Wasser. Die Viren verursachen einen wässrigen Durchfall, oft auch Erbrechen und Fieber. Dabei werden den Körperzellen Flüssigkeit entzogen. Glücklicherweise können Sie sich heutzutage dagegen impfen lassen. Ihr Arzt in Alanya kann Sie dazu gerne beraten.

Wenn die Symptome beginnen, können Sie einige Maßnahmen ergreifen, damit es Ihrem Kind besser geht und es schneller wieder gesund wird. Wenn Sie noch stillen, können Sie dies ohne Bedenken weiterhin tun, denn die Muttermilch enthält wirksame Antikörper, außerdem hilft auch die Flüssigkeitszufuhr. In jedem Falle ist es aber besser mit Ihrem Arzt in Alanya zu sprechen, bevor Sie die Initiative ergreifen. Als Alternative zur Milch können Sie auch eine Gemüsebrühe zubereiten. Bei Erbrechen ist es natürlich schwierig das Kind zu füttern. In diesem Fall ist die Meinung eines Arztes erforderlich.  Um Übelkeit und das damit verbundene Risiko des Würgens zu vermeiden, können Sie das Kind für einige Sekunden an Ihrer Brust saugen lassen, so nimmt es kleine Mengen an Milch zu sich. Es ist wichtig, den Körper ständig mit Flüssigkeit zu versorgen. Sie können dem Kind auch einfach Wasser mit einer speziellen Lösung, die feuchtigkeitsspendene Salze enthält, verabreichen (wird Ihnen von Ihrem Arzt in Alanya verschrieben). Wenn das Kind trotz der Krankheit lebendig ist und regelmäßig in die Windel macht, können Sie sich entspannen, denn dies ist ein Zeichen, dass die Gesundheit des Kindes auf dem Weg der Besserung ist.

So, you got sunburned on your beach vacation in Alanya, Konakli, Avsallar. These sunburn treatments, from hydration to cool compresses, can help salvage the rest of your trip.

You looked forward to your tropical beach vacation for months. When you finally arrived, you headed straight to the beach to relax in the sun. While you enjoyed every minute of it and thought you were following all the right sun protection  tips, the facts face you in your hotel room mirror later that day: You have a sunburn.

Now what? You need sunburn treatment that can keep your sunburn from ruining the rest of your beach vacation in Alanya avsallar konakli.

How Sunburn Happened

You already know that the best way to keep your skin youthful and healthy is to stay out of the sun during its peak hours and use sunscreen and protective clothing when you are in the sun. So how did this happen? You may not have known how powerful the sun’s rays are:

  • People at a tropical beach vacation are at an increased risk of getting a sunburn because these destinations are nearer Alanya, where the sun’s rays are the strongest.
  • Reflection from the sand and water increases the amount of sun you get. (You are even at risk of sunburn or sunstroke when vacationing in snowy destinations, since the sun’s reflection off the snow makes it stronger in these locales, too.)
  • Sunburn can develop after just 15 minutes, but you may not realize what’s happening because sunburn symptoms usually don’t appear until three to five hours after sun exposure.

Sunburn Treatment Strategies

Once you have a sunburn, your symptoms can actually get worse over the next 24 to 36 hours, and the painful, uncomfortable results of a sunburn can stick around for five days or more. There is no way to make a sunburn go away immediately — you will have to wait until your skin heals. However, there are several sunburn treatments to relieve your pain and help you feel more comfortable:

  • Use a pain reliever. As soon as you realize that you have a sunburn, head indoors immediately and use a topical or oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve). When these medications are used early enough, they may help reduce some of the redness. Keep taking these medications as needed as your skin heals, since they can also reduce other sunburn-related symptoms, including pain, fever, and headache.
  • Get hydrated. When you are in the sun for long periods of time, it is easy to become overheated and dehydrated. So, for the first two to three days after you get a sunburn, drink plenty of water and other caffeine- and alcohol-free fluids to help keep you hydrated.
  • Stay in the shade. To help prevent further damage to your already sunburned skin, wear lightweight protective clothing and stay out of the sun — seek the shade of an umbrella or covered porch. If it is especially hot outside or you are very uncomfortable, you may feel better spending more time indoors, in air conditioning.
  • Moisturize your skin. Slather on a moisturizing cream or aloe vera gel to soothe your parched skin and help relieve some of your sunburn symptoms.
  • Cool down. If the pain and heat of your sunburn are making you uncomfortable, taking a cool bath or applying cool compresses to the affected areas may provide some relief.

When to Seek Emergency Care

Sometimes, a sunburn is so severe that it is considered a medical emergency. Travel health experts advise getting immediate medical care if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme skin pain or blistering
  • Facial swelling
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Stomach upset
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Dehydration

Hilfe bei Sonnenbrand um Ihren Urlaub zu retten

Sie haben sich in der Sonne während Ihres Strandurlaubs in Alanya, Konakli, Avsallar verbrannt. Richtige Maßnahmen bei Sonnenbrand, wie zum Beispiel kühle Kompressen, können den Rest Ihres Urlaubs retten.

Sie haben sich monatelang auf Ihren Strandurlaub gefreut. Sie sind nach Ihrer Anreise deshalb natürlich gleich an den Strand in die Sonne gegangen. Während Sie jede Minute genossen haben und der Meinung waren, alle Sonnenschutzregeln beachtet zu haben, sehen Sie das Ergebnis späterin Ihrem Hotelzimmer im Spiegel: Sie haben einen Sonnenbrand.

Und jetzt? Benötigen Sie Hilfe um den Rest Ihres Urlaubs in Alanya genießen zu können.

Wie entsteht Sonnenbrand?

Sie wissen bereits, dass es am Besten ist, die Sonne in der Mittagshitze zu meiden und Sonnenschutzmittel zu benutzen, um Ihre Haut jung und gesund zu erhalten. Wie kann es also zum Sonnenbrand kommen? Sie wissen vielleicht nicht, wie stark die Strahlung der Sonne wirklich ist:

  • Personen an einem tropischen Strand sind einem erhöhten Risiko ausgesetzt, weil die Sonnenstrahlen in diesen Regionen stärker sind.
  • Reflektionen von Sand und Wasser erhöhen die Strahlung der Sonne auf Ihrer Haut (selbst beim Skiurlaub besteht ein hohes Risiko für Sonnenbrand und Sonnenstich, da die Reflektion durch den Schnee sehr stark ist).
  • Sonnenbrand kann bereits nach 15 Minuten entstehen, aber Sie bemerken es wahrscheinlich noch nicht, da die Symptome eines Sonnenbrands normalerweise frühestens 3 bis 5 Stunden nach dem Sonnenbad auftreten.

Hilfe bei Sonnenbrand

Wenn Sie erst einmal einen Sonnenbrand haben, können sich die Symptome in den nächsten 24 bis 36 Stunden stark verschlechtern und bis zu 5 Tage anhalten. Es gibt leider keinen Weg, einen Sonnenbrand durch bestimmte Maßnahmen und Mittel sofort zu beseitigen – Sie müssen warten, bis Ihre Haut heilt. Trotz alledem gibt es gewisse Mittel, die bei Sonnenbrand helfen:

  • Benutzen Sie Schmerzmittel. Sobald Sie bemerken, dass Sie einen Sonnenbrand haben, gehen Sie schnellstmöglich aus der Sonne und benutzen Sie Tabletten wie zum Beispiel Ibuprofen. Wenn diese Medikamente früh genug eingenommen werden, können Sie die starken Rötungen reduzieren. Nutzen Sie die Medikamente solange wie nötig, da sie auch andere Symptome eines Sonnenbrands wie Schmerzen, Fieber und Kopfschmerzen reduzieren können.
  • Nehmen Sie Flüssigkeit zu sich. Wenn Sie lange in der Sonne waren, kann es schnell passieren, dass Ihr Körperdehydriert, das heißt, er nicht genug Flüssigkeit hat. Daher sollten Sie an den ersten 2 oder 3 Tagen, nachdem Sie den Sonnenbrand bekommen haben, sehr viel Wasser und andere koffein- und alkoholfreie Getränke zu sich nehmen, um den Flüssigkeithaushalt wieder in Ordnung zu bringen.
  • Bleiben Sie im Schatten. Um weitere Schädigungen Ihrer bereits verbrannten Haut zu verhindern, tragen Sie leichte schützende Kleidung und bleiben der Sonne fern. Falls es sehr heiß ist und Sie sich draußen unwohl fühlen, bleiben Sie lieber in klimatisierten Räumen.
  • Geben Sie Ihrer Haut Feuchtigkeit. Cremen Sie sich mit einer Feuchtigkeits- oder Aloe Vera Creme ein, um Ihrer Haut Feuchtigkeit zu geben und zusätzlich einige Ihrer Symptome zu lindern.
  • Kühlen Sie sich ab. Falls die Schmerzen und die Hitze durch den Sonnenbrand weniger erträglich werden,nehmen Sie ein kühles Bad oder wenden Sie kalte Kompressen auf den verbrannten Bereichen an

Wann sollten Sie einen Arzt aufsuchen?

Manchmal ist ein Sonnenbrand so stark, dass es ein medizinischer Notfall ist. Reise-Gesundheits-Experten empfehlen, dass Sie bei den folgenden Symptomen unbedingt einen Arzt aufsuchen sollten:

  • Extreme Schmerzen auf der Haut
  • Schwellung des Gesichts
  • Fieber
  • Schüttelfrost
  • Kopfschmerzen
  • Magenprobleme
  • Verwirrung
  • Dehydrierung
