Nairaland / General / Quote About Forgiveness by Figo123: 7:14pm On Jun 03, 2022
Absolution says you are allowed one more opportunity to make a fresh start. There is no affection without pardoning, and there is no absolution without adoration. Pardoning is the aroma that the violet sheds on the heel that has squashed it. To pardon is to liberated a detainee and find that the detainee was you.

1. Forgiveness sometimes comes a little too late, but just remember its always better late then never

Health / Infection Caused By Human Parvovirus B19. Its More Common In Children Than Adult by Figo123: 3:00pm On Mar 14, 2022
Description
Fifth disease is a mild viral infection caused by human parvovirus B19. It’s more common in children than adults. It’s called fifth disease because it was fifth on a list of illnesses that caused rashes in children in the past. Fifth disease is sometimes called “slapped cheek disease.” The illness’s bright red rash on the face looks like the child has been slapped. About half of people get fifth fth disease is a mild viral infection caused by human parvovirus B19. It’s more common in children than adults. It’s called fifth disease because it was fifth on a list of illnesses that caused rashes in children in the past. Fifth disease is sometimes called “slapped cheek disease.” The illness’s bright red rash on the face looks like the child has been slapped. About half of people get fifth disease sometime during childhood or their teens. Once you’ve had it, you are unlikely to be at risk of getting it again.





Transmission
Parvovirus B19—which causes fifth disease—spreads through respiratory secretions, such as saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus, when an infected person coughs or sneezes. You are most contagious when it seems like you have “just a fever and/or cold” and before you get the rash or joint pain and swelling. After you get the rash you are not likely to be contagious, so it is usually safe for you or your child to go back to work or school.

People with fifth disease who have weakened immune systems may be contagious for a longer amount of time.

Parvovirus B19 can also spread through blood or blood products. A pregnant woman who is infected with parvovirus B19 can pass the virus to her baby.

Once you recover from fifth disease, you develop immunity that generally protects you from parvovirus B19 infection in the future.

What is the pathophysiology of Fifth Disease?
Human PV-B19, a member of the family Parvoviridae, is a heat-stable, single-stranded DNA virus. It is the only parvovirus known to cause disease in humans.

The development of erythema infectiosum in children is a normal response to infection by PV-B19. Acute infection in a host who is immunocompetent leads to a Th-1–mediated cellular immune response, with the production of specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies and subsequent formation of immune complexes. Clinical signs and symptoms of erythema infectiosum probably result from the deposition of the immune complexes in the skin and joints of individuals with this condition and not from the circulating virus. The incubation period is usually 7-10 days, but it can be 4-21 days. Extremely high viral loads are noted in patients with aplastic crisis, but low-level persistent polymerase chain reaction positivity in tissues is also common among adults in a variety of tissues.

Health / Social Anxiety Disorder Or Social Phobia by Figo123: 2:22pm On Mar 14, 2022
What is Social Anxiety Disorder?
Social anxiety disorder, formerly referred to as social phobia, is an anxiety disorder characterized by overwhelming anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in everyday social situations. People with social anxiety disorder have a persistent, intense, and chronic fear of being watched and judged by others and of being embarrassed or humiliated by their own actions. Their fear may be so severe that it interferes with work, school, or other activities. While many people with this disorder recognize that their fear of being around people may be excessive or unreasonable, they are unable to overcome it. They often worry for days or weeks in advance of a dreaded situation. In addition, they often experience low self-esteem and depression.


Social anxiety disorder can be limited to only one type of situation such as a fear of public speaking or a person can experience symptoms whenever they are around other people. If left untreated, social phobia can have severe consequences. For example, it may keep people from work or school or prevent them from making friends.

Physical symptoms, which often accompany the intense stress of social anxiety disorder, include blushing, sweating, trembling, nausea, and difficulty speaking. Because these visible symptoms heighten the fear of disapproval, they themselves can become an additional focus of fear, creating a vicious cycle: As people with social anxiety disorder worry about experiencing these symptoms, the greater their chances are of developing them.

It often runs in families and may be accompanied by depression or other anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Some people with social anxiety disorder self-medicate with alcohol or other drugs, which can lead to addiction.

What is the Epidemiology of Social Anxiety Disorder?
The lifetime prevalence of social anxiety disorder varies with respect to gender and ethnic background. Research estimates that 12% of the U.S. population meets the criteria for social anxiety disorder with rates in other countries varying widely. Women are more likely to develop the disorder than men.

The disorder is prevalent in other populations; however, the anxiety may present itself differently. One form of the disorder, Taijin Kyofusho, is strongly culture-specific. Taijin Kyofusho is primarily found in Japan and Korea, and many of the features of the disorder reflect cultural differences that exist between American and Japanese culture. Unlike the more westernized form of social anxiety disorder, individuals with Taijin Kyofusho do not fear embarrassing themselves but rather have an irrational fear that others will be embarrassed by their own smell, facial expression (e.g. blushing), or movements. They have a persistent fear that their physical presence will be offensive or displeasing.

What is the Risk factors of Social anxiety disorder?
Several factors can increase your chances of developing social anxiety disorder, including:

Negative life experiences: Children who are teased, bullied, rejected, ridiculed, or humiliated may be more likely to develop social anxiety disorder. Family conflict, trauma, abuse, or other negative life events may also be linked to the condition.

New social or work demands: Meeting new people, giving a speech, or having to make an important presentation at work may trigger social anxiety disorder symptoms.

Having an appearance or condition that attracts attention: Facial disfigurement, stuttering, tremors due to Parkinson’s disease, and other conditions can make people feel self-conscious and may trigger social anxiety disorder.

Shy temperament: Children who are shy, timid, withdrawn, or restrained when dealing with new situations or people may have an increased risk of developing the disorder. People who have social anxiety disorder commonly say they were extremely shy as children. (However, social anxiety disorder and shyness are not the same thing.)

What Causes Social anxiety disorder?
Although it may feel like you’re the only one with this problem, social anxiety is actually quite common. Many people struggle with these fears. But the situations that trigger the symptoms of social anxiety disorder can be different.

Some people experience anxiety in most social situations. For others, anxiety is connected to specific social situations, such as speaking to strangers, mingling at parties, or performing in front of an audience. Common social anxiety triggers include:

Meeting new people
Making small talk
Public speaking
Performing on stage
Being the center of attention
Talking with “important” people or authority figures
Being watched while doing something
Going on a date
Being teased or criticized
Speaking up in a meeting
Being called on in class
Using public restrooms
Taking exams
Eating or drinking in public
Making phone calls
Attending parties or other social gatsymptom
What are the Symptoms of Social anxiety disorder?
Social anxiety is more than shyness. It’s an intense fear that doesn’t go away.

It can affect your:

Everyday activities
Self-confidence
Relationships
Work or school life
Many people worry about social situations from time-to-time. Someone with social anxiety feels very worried before, during and after them.



You may have social anxiety if you:

Dread meeting strangers, starting conversations, speaking on the phone, working or shopping
Avoid or worry a lot about social activities – group conversations, eating with company, and parties
Always worry about doing something you think is embarrassing – blushing, sweating or appearing incompetent
Find it difficult to do things when others are watching
Fear criticism, avoid eye contact or have low self-esteem
Often have symptoms such as feeling sick, sweating, trembling or heart palpitations
Have panic attacks
Many people with social anxiety also have other mental health issues, such as:

Depression
Generalised anxiety disorder
Body dysmorphic disorder
What are Social anxiety disorder complications?
Left untreated, it can control your life. Anxieties can interfere with work, school, relationships or enjoyment of life. This disorder can cause:

Low self-esteem
Trouble being assertive
Negative self-talk
Hypersensitivity to criticism
Poor social skills
Isolation and difficult social relationships
Low academic and employment achievement
Substance abuse, such as drinking too much alcohol
Suicide or suicide attempts
Other anxiety disorders and certain other mental health disorders, particularly major depressive disorder and substance abuse problems, often occur with social anxiety disorder.

Diagnosis and test
Your healthcare provider will diagnose social anxiety disorder from a description of your symptoms and behavioral patterns. During your appointment, you will be asked to explain what symptoms you are having and discuss situations in which these symptoms present themselves. The diagnostic criteria for social anxiety disorder, as outlined in the DSM-5, includes:

Marked fear or anxiety about one or more social situations in which the individual is exposed to possible scrutiny by others lasting for 6 months or more.

Fear of acting in a way that will reveal anxiety symptoms that will be negatively evaluated by others. In children, the anxiety must occur when the child is among peers and not just adults.

The social situations almost always cause fear and anxiety.
The social situations are avoided or endured with intense fear.
The fear or anxiety is out of proportion to the actual threat posed by the situation.
Differential Diagnosis
There are many conditions that share similarities with social anxiety disorder. Often, these may be diagnosed along with SAD. Differential diagnosis might include the following conditions:

Selective mutism: Selective mutism involves a failure to speak in specific social situations (e.g., at school) and is usually diagnosed in childhood. Children with this disorder will fail to speak at school but may talk with their family at home.

Childhood-onset fluency disorder (stuttering):Childhood-onset fluency disorder is listed as a neurodevelopmental disorder but can also cause anxiety about speaking in public.

Avoidant personality disorder: This disorder involves the same symptoms as social anxiety disorder but to a stronger degree, with a broader pattern of avoidance.

Panic disorder: Panic disorder involves unexpected panic attacks that appear to come out of the blue. Unlike those with SAD, people with panic disorder may suspect a medical cause for their anxiety.

Agoraphobia: Agoraphobia is diagnosed alongside panic disorder and refers to a fear of having a panic attack in a place from which it would be hard to escape. People with social anxiety disorder may also be diagnosed with panic disorder and agoraphobia, but these are separate conditions.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD): Autism spectrum disorder involves impairment in social communication across a range of contexts. Children who have high-functioning autism (Level 1) may also have social anxiety.

Health / Infection Of The Inner Lining Of The Heart And Its Valves. by Figo123: 2:12pm On Mar 14, 2022
Endocarditis is an infection of the inner lining of the heart and its valves. The infection is caused by bacteria or fungi that enter the bloodstream through the mucous membranes of the mouth, open wounds, needles. It can also occur from medical procedures which involve cutting through infected skin.





Normally, bacteria which enter the bloodstream pass harmlessly through the heart and are killed by the immune system. However, bacteria circulating through the bloodstream may attach to heart tissue that is already damaged by heart disease or to an artificial heart valve. When this happens, the bacteria can hide from the immune system and cause a dangerous infection.

Endocarditis can lead to other life-threatening conditions. Stroke or reduced blood flow to other organs can occur when clumps of bacteria break off from the heart and block the blood vessels. The bacteria which cause endocarditis can also spread to other organs, causing additional tissue damage. Uncontrolled endocarditis can permanently damage the heart valves, eventually leading to heart failure.

Epidemiology
Infective endocarditis is a rare disease, with an incidence of two to six episodes per 100,000 habitants/year. Incidence is higher in elderly people; besides, this group is often affected by much comorbidity. There is a clear and observable change in the spectrum of heart diseases predisposing to infective endocarditis in the last decades. Up to one-third of the patients acquire the disease on a health-care-associated environment. Despite advances in health-care logistics, infective endocarditis remains a big concern especially in low-income countries, where the main cause of infection is rheumatic fever. In-hospital mortality persists relatively high despite development in medical and surgical treatment. Patients with infective endocarditis need rapid response and prompt diagnosis from a multidisciplinary group including cardiologists, surgeons, infectologists, and radiologists.

Types of Endocarditis
Infectious (bacterial) endocarditis: This type of endocarditis is characterized by an infection caused by bacteria or fungi that enter the bloodstream and settle in the heart lining, a heart valve or a blood vessel. This type of endocarditis is uncommon, but people with some heart conditions have a greater risk of developing it.

Non-infectious (non-bacterial) endocarditis:This type of endocarditis is characterized by various kinds of illnesses affecting the heart valves, most often the left side of the heart. The disease may be the first step in development of infectious endocarditis.

Endocarditis risk factors
Your risk is higher if you have a problem that affects blood flow through your heart. That’s because a blood flow problem makes it more likely that bacteria or fungi will attach to heart tissue. Some other things raise your risk too, because they can let bacteria or fungi enter your bloodstream.

You have a higher risk of endocarditis if you have:

Had endocarditis in the past.
An implanted heart device such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD).
A hemodialysis access or a central venous catheter.
Abnormal or damaged heart valves or an artificial heart valve.
A congenital heart defect.
Injected illegal drugs using dirty needles or without cleaning the skin.
Not all heart problems put you at higher risk for endocarditis. You do not have a higher risk if you have had:

Bypass surgery for heart disease.
Rheumatic fever without heart valve damage.
A heart attack without other complications.
Mitral valve prolapse without regurgitation or unusually thickened valve leaflets.
A coronary artery stent.
What Causes Endocarditis?
Endocarditis occurs when germs enter the bloodstream and reach the heart, multiplying and attaching to atypical heart valves or damaged heart tissue. Overgrown bacteria are the most common cause of endocarditis, although fungi and other microorganisms can sometimes be responsible for the condition. The immune system usually destroys harmful bacteria that makes it into the bloodstream, but sometimes bacteria makes it through the bloodstream and into the heart. Normal heart valves are resistant to infection, but diseased, damaged, or prosthetic heart valves are more prone to bacteria which forms endocarditis.

Bacteria and germs enter the bloodstream in several predictable ways. The following are common endocarditis causes:

Injury to the mouth, gums or skin.
Regular teeth brushing.
Flossing the teeth.
Gum disease (also known as Gingivitis).
Certain dental procedures (such as tooth extraction that involve cutting the gums).
Skin sores, abrasions or openings.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Catheters (usually longer-term use).
Certain intestinal disorders (including inflammatory bowel disease).
Needles when getting tattoos.
Needles when getting body piercings.
Illegal intravenous (IV) drug injection (especially with used or unclean needles).
If enough bacteria enter the bloodstream, or if aggressive bacteria enter the bloodstream, endocarditis can develop even on healthy heart valves.

What is Endocarditis symptoms?
The usual signs of endocarditis are prolonged fever for several days (occasionally up to 30 days) in a child with congenital heart disease that occurs after a procedure in the mouth, intestinal tract or urinary tract. However, the infection may occur without a previous procedure.

Symptoms of endocarditis may develop slowly or come on suddenly. They include:

Fatigue
Fever
Headache
Joint inflammation or pain
Night sweats
Poor appetite and/or weight loss
Rash
More severe symptoms include:

Anemia
An enlarged spleen
Bleeding that causes small dark lines under the fingernails or small dark spots on the skin
New heart murmurs
Endocarditis complications
Complications of bacterial endocarditis include:

Heart failure
Blood clots or clumps of bacteria travel to other parts of the body (emboli). This might travel to the arteries in the heart, brain, spleen, bowel, arms, or legs.
Infection in other parts of the heart
Weakened blood vessel (aneurysm), such as in the brain
Kidney injury or disease
Death

NYSC / Familial Hypercholesterolemia - Causes, Type, Risk Factors And Prevention by Figo123: 1:55pm On Mar 14, 2022
What is Familial hypercholesterolemia?
Familial hypercholesterolemia is a common life-threatening genetic condition that causes high cholesterol. Untreated, FH leads to early heart attacks and heart disease. People with FH have a high amount of low density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad cholesterol” due to a mutation in one of the genes that controls the way cholesterol is cleared by the body. As a result, cholesterol accumulates in the bloodstream and can ultimately build up in the walls of the arteries. Cholesterol build-up in the artery wall is called hardening of the arteries, or atherosclerosis, and can lead to problems such as heart attacks and strokes in young adults and even children.

FH is inherited and passed down through families. When one individual with FH is diagnosed, it is important that all family members are screened for FH. Treatment should begin early. Although lifestyle and diet are important factors to staying heart healthy, for individuals with FH, that is not enough

Health / Penile Cancer by Figo123: 3:08am On Mar 06, 2022
Penile cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the penis. It is the male sex organ that passes sperm and urine from the body. The most common type of penile cancer is squamous cell carcinoma (cancer that begins in flat cells in the top layer of the skin). It usually forms on or under the foreskin (the loose skin covering the head of the penis). Signs of penile cancer include sores or other skin changes, discharge, and bleeding. Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes about one-third of penile cancer cases. Circumcision (removal of the foreskin) may help prevent HPV and decrease the risk of penile cancer. When found early, penile cancer can usually be cured.

Health / What Is The Main Cause Of Leg Cramp? by Figo123: 10:52am On Mar 04, 2022
What are leg cramps?
Leg cramps are sudden, involuntary, intense muscle pains usually in your calf, foot or thigh. You might also know them as a “charley horse.” Sometimes the cramp may cause your leg to spasm – to tighten uncontrollably. Although painful to live with, cramps are generally harmless. A leg cramp feels like a clenched, contracted muscle tightened into a knot. It can be severely uncomfortable, painful or even unbearable. Your muscles in the area might hurt for hours after the cramp goes away.

Success is always between you and your mind!

2. Whenever fear knocks on your door,

Always have the right courage to open the door,

Because success is waiting behind the fear,

Then only you will reach your goal!

3. Though the duck swims smoothly on water,

Underneath it has to struggle and pedal,

Nothing comes easier in life without struggle,

So stay motivated!

Romance / Broken Heart Valentine Poem by Figo123: 7:06am On Feb 01, 2022
Broken heart Valentine poem

1. You killed my dreams in life


You killed many dreams of love

You ruined my chance to be with you

I had a feeling so pure for you

It was true love that I want you to know

You had no reasons enough to show

You had no words to express it through

Why you left me and simply went

Our ways will never ever mend

It is all lost and love unknown

Please stay away from my heart

Now that we are so apart

On this day of love

Wish you Valentine's Day!

2. The yearning of me to see you my loveead more by clicking on the link below�

Romance / Valentine Romantic Poem by Figo123: 11:38pm On Jan 31, 2022
Valentine's Day is the Holiday of Romance. Romance is love in its active state, ignited and inspired. Valentine's Day may feel like a holiday forced on us by the Greeting Card, Jewelry and Floral industries, but the truth is that we have accepted it because we recognize and value its purpose. Love that never inspires romance is stagnant and stale. Valentine's Day is an opportunity to ignite our existing relationship with romance, and love with an added dose of romance will result in a stronger, longer lasting and far more satisfying relationship.

1. No reason when the heart wants





No reason when the heart wants

To be with someone who love

No reason when the heart wants to hear someone

It's you who I love so much

It's you who I want to be with

All my life and till my last breath

It's you who I just want to be with

Baby I am so in love with you

It's you who stay in my heart

Love so passionate only for you

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Health / Definition Of Mastitis, Type Of Mastitis What Is The Cause Of Mastitis,symptoms by Figo123: 6:24pm On Jan 24, 2022
Definition
Mastitis is an infection and inflammation of the breast, usually the fatty tissue of the breast, that causes redness, pain and swelling. As this swelling pushes on the milk ducts, it causes pain. Mastitis is usually caused by an infection with the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. These bacteria are normally present on your skin, but cause problems when they enter the body. Bacteria causing mastitis enter through a break or crack in the skin of the breast, usually on the nipple. In fact, mastitis usually occurs in women who are breastfeeding because the nipples often become dry and irritated and can become cracked during nursing. This allows the bacteria to invade breast tissue, in particular the milk ducts and milk glands.

Mastitis in a nonbreast feeding woman is more common after menopause than before. In very rare cases, this may indicate the presence of another primary disease, such as breast cancer. At the same time, a clogged milk duct can mimic mastitis. While a woman adjusts to bwreastfeeding a new infant, the milk ducts inside the breast can become clogged, causing tenderness, redness, lumps and even heat under the skin surface, but without infection.

Health / Definition Of Coccydynia, What Is The Anatomy Of Coccydynia, What Are The Causes by Figo123: 9:50am On Jan 19, 2022
Definition of Coccydynia
Coccydynia is pain in or around the area of the coccyx, more commonly known as the tailbone. The coccyx is the last bone at the base of the spine. Injury or strain to the surrounding ligaments and muscles may cause this pain and discomfort, which is most often felt while sitting. Coccydynia may require medical treatment if the pain is severe or impeding the ability to perform everyday activities.

What is the Anatomy of Coccydynia
Coccydynia occurs within the tailbone, at the lower part of the spine, which is representative of a vestigial tail. The name comes from the Greek word meaning cuckoo because of the appearance of the coccyx looks like a cuckoo’s beak. Three to five fused vertebrae make up the coccyx. On the ventral side of the coccyx, it is slightly concave while on th dorsal aspect it is slightly convex. Both sides have transverse grooves showing where the vestigial units were once fused. The coccyx is attached to the sacrum stemming from the dorsal grooves being attached with either a true synovial joint or a symphysis, as well as the anococcygeal ligament, coccygeal muscle and the gluteus maximus muscle.

Epidemiology
Coccygodynia accounts for fewer than 1% of all back pain conditions. It is five times more prevalent in women than in men, presumably because the bone is more prominent in women than in men. Although coccygodynia can occur over a wide age range, the mean age of onset is around 40 years.

Health / What Is Anal Itching, Causes,type And Prevention by Figo123: 4:42pm On Jan 17, 2022
What is Anal Itching?
Anal itching (known medically as pruritus ani) is irritation of the skin at the opening of the anal canal through which stool exits the body that leads to itching. The skin surrounding the opening is known as the anus. The itching is accompanied by the desire to scratch. Although itching may be a reaction to chemicals in the stool, it often implies that there is inflammation of the anal area. The intensity of anal itching and the amount of inflammation increases with the direct trauma of scratching and the presence of moisture. At its most intense, anal itching causes intolerable discomfort that often is described as burning and soreness.

What are the types of pruritus ani?
There are two main types of pruritus ani – primary and secondary.

Primary (idiopathic) pruritus ani – this condition has no identifiable underlying cause. This is the most common type of pruritus ani.
Secondary pruritus ani – this condition may be due to many different underlying causes. They may include infections, contact dermatitis or other dermatological conditions, systemic diseases, and other factors.
Pathophysiology of Anal Itching
The pathophysiology of pruritus ani has not been elucidated yet. It has been hypothesized that when sensory nerves in the perianal area are stimulated, skin irritation and subsequent pruritis is induced; consequently, the skin is excessively scratched, which causes skin injury. Fecal contamination due to abnormal transient internal sphincter relaxation has also been reported to result in a subsequent perianal itching problem. Feces contain endopeptidases of bacterial origin, in addition to potential allergens and bacteria. These enzymes are capable of causing both itching and inflammation.

Causes and risk factors of anal itching
Causes of pruritus ani can be either primary, meaning that there is no sign of another condition, or secondary, which means that there is an identifiable underlying cause.

Possible underlying causes include:

Hygiene: Washing too much or too little can cause irritation.
Cosmetics: Soaps and other products can irritate the skin.
Skin conditions: Dermatitis and psoriasis can cause itching.
Anal or rectal disorders: Examples include conditions such as piles, anal fistulas, and anal fissures.
Infections: Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), especially those that involve parasites, can lead to itching. Some types of bacteria, fungi (yeast), or parasites can cause itching. Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes (types of bacteria), Candida albicans (a yeast), pinworms (mainly in children), and Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies mites) are some organisms that result in itching and irritation.
Systemic conditions: Some conditions that affect the whole body can cause itching, including anemia, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), jaundice, leukemia, lymphoma, and thyroid disease.
Incontinence: This condition can make it hard to control moisture and bacteria.
Foods: Dietary irritants include chili peppers.
Drugs: Pruritis can be a side effect of chemotherapy, colchicine (Colcrys), neomycin (Mycitracin), and corticosteroids.
What are the signs and symptoms of an itchy anus?
In addition to anal itching, you may also experience:

Burning
Soreness
Visible redness
Swelling
Ulcers
A rash
