Human Papillomavirus or HPV Infection (HPV4)

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
HPV4 also known as Human Papillomavirus or HPV Infection is a known sexually transmitted disease that causes women’s cervical cancer. The skin along the genital area can be infected with this condition. Other than the rare occurrence of genital warts, some patients do not show any symptoms until the disease developed into a more chronic type or worst, cancer in the cervix of women. Irritability and discomfort in the sex organ are observed by those who contracted the disease. Babies however can be infected by their mothers after labor that can damage the child’s airways and lungs.

As a sexually transmitted disease it is obviously contracted while having sex. Although there are more than a hundred kinds of human papillomaviruses, only forty can be transferred from one human being to another. HPV Vaccine must not be missed by people who are prone to the disease. Lifestyle dictates the vulnerability of a person.

Symptoms can be cleared out in time just by treating the symptoms – probably within two years from contracting the condition. However, if cell changes have been diagnosed, Cryotherapy, Conization or Electrosurgical Excision Procedure may be undertaken based on the specialist’s recommendation to get rid of abnormal cells that might be cancerous by nature!

The Two Kinds of Hepatitis


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The viral disease attacking the liver is called Hepatitis and there are two kinds of Hepatitis – Hepatitis A and B. The symptoms of both conditions are quite similar like fever onset, feeling fatigue, loss of appetite, frequent nausea, stomach pain, jaundice or yellowish skin and whites of eyes and dark-colored or coffee-like urine. The stool can also be dark colored especially with Hepatitis B.

Hepatitis A is highly infectious from the virus from the feces of the infected person that happens to contaminate the food taken. Hepatitis B can be transferred from one person to the other through exchange of bodily fluids like blood, saliva and sexual juices. An unborn baby can inherit the disease from the mother during birth.

Hep A Vaccine is used as preventive medication for Hepatitis A and Hep B Vaccine for Hepatitis B. Hepatitis A can’t be cured but the symptoms can be relieved by over-the-counter drugs or a general practitioner’s prescription like Paracetamol for fever or headaches and pain killer just to feel comfortable. Hepatitis B can be cleared just by treating the symptoms but if it becomes chronic, a liver specialist must be consulted who can prescribe antiviral medications.

Flu or Influenza can be Deadly

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Flu or Influenza is a common condition that occurs when there’s sudden climate change or especially during the winter in cold countries. It is a disease in the respiratory system attacking the lungs, nose and throat. Mild flu can be remedied with over the counter medications and traditional home care – but it can also divert into a serious illness and sometimes can be fatal.

You would recognize that a person has a flu when he is she is experiencing fever, coughing dry, throat is sore, having bad headaches, over-fatigued, aching all over the body and suffering from breathing difficulty because of stuffed nose. Bed rest is necessary for many days if the condition is severe.

Influenza is contagious through unprotected coughing or sneezing from the sick person to others in the same area. Infections also be transferred by germs from touching the nose and mouth of the infected individual – who unknowingly touch other people without thoroughly washing hands.

During influenza outbreak, it is best to resort to TIV or LAIV vaccination. Earlier Amantadine and Rimantadine are released and approved for its prevention and treatment of Influenza A – but resistance by other kinds of Influenza is now identified. Note that the Influenza virus causes flu and there are Types A, B and C Influenza that only a doctor can diagnose.

Come to think of it. We will never know about this girl, if not because of her teachers who feel and care for her. Such a very admirable trait to find ways to source funding for the girl’s further education. Truly, we should live for others to be happy and contented!
