If an injured area of the skin swells and turns red, it could be a sign of a bacterial infection. Fever, tenderness, and warmth may also indicate this.
The so-called wound rose affects the upper layers of the house. It manifests itself as a red, shiny and relatively sharply defined swelling. If the redness is less sharply defined, darker and dull, it may be a so-called phlegmon. This affects the lower layers of the skin. The Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) points this out on its patient information page Gesundheitsinformation.de.
Bacterial skin infections can occur after injuries, needle sticks or animal bites. Skin diseases such as neurodermatitis increase the risk, as damage to the skin is a gateway for bacteria. Bacterial skin infections such as wound rose or phlegmon are treated with antibiotics. Protecting the affected area also supports healing. Failure to treat these infections risks serious complications, such as blood poisoning or abscess formation. (dpa)
It is actually said that sitting cross-legged is a healthy posture for the body. It occurs mainly in meditation and yoga exercises. But you shouldn’t stay too long even when sitting cross-legged. The dose makes the poison.
The knee is exposed to great stress in everyday life. If you want to protect the important joint, avoid positions that compress it.
When sitting cross-legged, for example, pressure is exerted on the meniscus, explains the “Apotheken Umschau” (issue 5/2017). You shouldn’t sit like that for too long. Also not good: kneeling or crouching for a long time. This can damage the cartilage.
An Egyptian, believed to be the world’s fattest woman, will arrive in India on Saturday for life-saving weight-reduction surgery, her doctor said on Friday.
Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, 36, is believed to weigh around 500 kilograms and has, according to his family, elephantiasis, a condition that causes swelling of the limbs and other parts of the body.
His story had been around the world and moved an Indian surgeon who had offered to operate for free in the fall.
The patient is expected to arrive in Bombay, the economic capital of India, early Saturday morning aboard a specially equipped Airbus, said Dr Muffazal Lakdawala in a statement.
“To prepare her for the flight, a team of doctors has been in Egypt for ten days to optimize her travel conditions”, adds the text.
Ms Abd El Aty, whose condition causes many complications and therefore requires urgent intervention, was unable to travel to India earlier. Due to her fragile health, airlines were reluctant to take her on board.
“She is a high risk patient who has been unable to move or leave the house for twenty-five years,” explained her surgeon.
If the weight of the Egyptian is attested, she would be the heaviest woman alive in the world today, after the American Pauline Potter (291 kilos).
Weight reduction surgeries are increasingly common in India, where obesity is on the rise especially in urban areas.
It’s the Talk of the Town at Residence Sainte-Claire, in Goodlands, since the broadcast of a video showing two young people on the doorstep of a shop, in a daze.
The two young people, in their twenties, would have suffered the effects of the synthetic drug, in particular “Flakka”, before lying on the ground. The video is creating a buzz on Facebook and on mobile phone messaging services. The clip does not leave the Central Barracks indifferent. But the traffic continues in peace.
Dial: Wednesday January 31 at 10 a.m. We went to the Margaret Shop, the place where the scene had been filmed. On the threshold of the building housing the business, they are several onlookers who are seated on the ground. Our conversations with regulars on the music video provoked an identical reaction from those present. “Sa bann guy-la pa dimoun by isi sa. Sirma zot vinn aste la drog isi, lerla finn ariv sa. ”
In this district, drug trafficking is the daily bread. It is far from being taboo although some inhabitants prefer to play it “personal” against the dealers. The perimeter of the traffic is, it seems, well defined by each of the bigwigs of the locality. If the name of John B. is often cited, residents also mention “Lekip France”. The latter live in the neighborhood and share the business.
We went to the business where the manager had driven the young people away under the influence of drugs. He tells Défi Quotidien that the two young people in a daze filmed on the threshold of his shop are not from the region. “Nepli kapav vive isi. Dimoun vini aste ladrog ale, ”says one of the administrators. The latter explains that it has become their daily life. Other residents of the neighborhood complain about the presence of numerous traffickers and that of their “jockeys”. “Fami pa vinn kot nou akoz zot. They deplore the fact that several people from “elsewhere” come to Residence Sainte-Claire to obtain drugs.
11:40 am We return to the scene. Our presence attracts the attention of regulars in the area. In an alley, not far from the business having witnessed the scene of two young people who collapsed on the ground, Linda (first name changed), who grew up in the region, explains that the situation continues to worsen. Drugs infiltrate their daily lives. “Or truv zen zen zanfan pe mars ek trafikan. Zot portab Dernyer model. Linda speaks of “lookouts” commonly known as “martins”. The traffickers, according to our speaker, use these children to sell their illicit products in peace.
Under the veranda where the two young people had collapsed on the video, the “martins” stand almost permanently. Bottle of beer and cigarette in hand, they spend their day, coming and going to the dealers’ houses. “Zot mem pran after book klian”, says a young man. They also act as “martins” for the traffickers. When suspicious vehicles arrive, they send the appropriate signal. Moreover, our presence aboard a 4×4 in this alley quickly attracted attention. “Nou gayn per pu al laboutik ek fami. Or imazin or tou letan or kone bann figir sal laba ”, indignant a mother.
For its part, the Anti-Drug and Smuggling Unit tries to trace it back to the consumer of the synthetic drug, but is mainly interested in the origin of this illicit product. If in the video, we hear the name of “Jean Daniel” as the supplier, the investigators still work in concert with the Field Intelligence Officers to identify the suppliers.
Sainte-Claire residence: the sister of a suspected trafficker arrested
While the compromising video continues to accumulate a number of Views on social networks, an Adsu operation made it possible to arrest the sister of a suspected drug dealer at Residence Sainte-Claire, Goodlands. In the afternoon of Tuesday, January 30, the narcotics brigade seized synthetic drugs. A search of the suspect’s home was conclusive.
The drug was concealed in a container and was sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for analysis. As for the 29-year-old suspect, she was released on parole, but will have to be brought to justice on Friday, February 2. At Residence Sainte-Claire, residents, in the greatest discretion, piped the names of three of theirs as “Big Bosses” of traffic. “Ena John, ena Sylvio ek Lekip France”, tell us a handful of people we met under a fruit tree, next to the Margaret Shop where the compromising video was filmed.
Danny Phillipe: “We have to establish which product it is”
Danny Phillipe from the Collectif Urgence Toxida (CUT) association commented on the video. For the social worker, the two young people were indeed under the influence of drugs. “Me pa kapav dir kiyete sa. Fodre laboratwar donn resilta. And to assert that the substance made that one of the two young people on the video fell in the apples, while the other was victim of adverse effects.
“Each drug works differently on different people. There is no scientific evidence. We just assign names, ”laments Danny Phillipe. A dose of “Flakka” would cost around Rs 50, according to our information gathered in the field.
Ally Lazer: “Synthetic drugs have entered the market”
Social worker Ally Lazer, president of the Mauritius Association of Social Workers (ATSM), says the price varies from place to place and depending on availability. Statistics in 2017 indicated that there were more than 20 types of synthetic drugs on the market. The new product “Flakka” seems to be wreaking havoc among the youngest. “Enn doz pe vann Rs 50. Ena landrwa vann sa Rs 30”, notes Ally Lazer. At Résidence Sainte-Claire and Chemin-Plateau, in the Goodlands region, the social worker said he saw a rejuvenation of consumers. “Se bann prodwi simik ki pe prodwir dan laboratwar. Synthetic drugs are becoming more and more dangerous to health, according to Ally Lazer. The latter claims that “synthetic drugs have invaded the market”. In second position, we find heroin, which costs more.
Siddique Maudarbocus: “These drugs can lead to death”
The doctor and director of the Mariannes Addiction Sanctuary is concerned about the situation of synthetic drugs in Mauritius. He paints a picture for us in the following interview.
What is the situation regarding synthetic drugs in Mauritius? After a simulacrum of calm, does this product seem to be coming back to the fore? You’re right, the synthetic drug is rolling like waves. What we also notice is that the molecules change every time. Consumers tire of one type of product and want to try new experiences with others. Young people are familiar with all the new developments in synthetic drugs and are easily tempted by new products to taste the effects. Which becomes an addiction. So they can’t do without it anymore.
Since there is no control over this product, everyone takes the dose they want. Some may thus take in small amounts while others consume large doses, which can lead to negative effects on the nervous system, heart, lungs. It is possible to pass out and have uncontrollable and unpredictable reactions. This can cause heart problems and lead to the death of the user.
Have you noticed an increase in patients or users of this type of drug? It is when there is a shortage of cannabis that synthetic drugs are popular. It’s a bit of a cause and effect situation. But this is a personal observation. What is sad is that our society is affected by drugs, especially among young people. What we see is only the tip of the iceberg.
Parents or those around consumers do not know how to identify the signs or do not take them into account. Or the young people are extremely discreet that they don’t notice their change in attitude or behavior.
What are the warning signs that should make those around you suspect drug use? A child who changes his habits overnight or becomes silent, plunges into loneliness, shows warning signs of probable drug use. We may also notice that he has trouble sleeping at night and wants to sleep during the day.
There are also the two extremes: either the child will have an increasing appetite or a loss of appetite. In another case, he will try to consume sugary foods. Which indicates biochemical dysfunction and is a testament to the imbalance that the person is facing.
What can be done in this case? We must prioritize dialogue. Model children can become aggressive when they were not violent before. They will be in denial when we confront them about their possible drug use. The only thing to do to help them is to call in health professionals: doctor or psychologist, or to go to a center specializing in addictions.
The best way to treat it is to offer the child 24/24 supervision for 14 days, in order to detoxify him and neutralize his feelings of withdrawal. In any case, you should not leave the person on their own because they risk relapse. Listening-advice sessions are also important, in order to avoid any unfortunate problems.
What can be the consequences of the consumption of synthetic drugs? When you take drugs, it inevitably wreaks havoc on the body. The consequences depend on the duration of consumption, the intensity and the dosage of the product. Some have trouble remembering and concentrating. It will stay for a while and will wear off when the person has stabilized. Others will experience stomach and muscle pain as well as intestinal problems.
Is it easy to detoxify a person who uses drugs? It is quite difficult, but with urine and blood tests it is possible to determine what type of therapy to initiate in a patient. It takes seven to ten days to cleanse the system and provide the molecules needed to stabilize the brain and counteract withdrawal effects. The addiction treatment phase must be done under medical supervision. Support from the family is very important during drug rehab.
Smoking affects boys as well as girls: among 13-15 year olds, 28% of boys and 10% of girls smoke. This is indicated by the Global Youth Tobacco Survey of 2016. The study commissioned by the Ministry of Health was made public on Monday, June 5.
The minister, Anwar Husnoo, unveiled it during a ceremony as part of the Tobacco Free Day at GMD Atchia College.
This report shows even more disturbing facts: almost 30% of these young smokers say they have been exposed to cigarettes at home and 30.3% of them say they started smoking before they even reached the point of smoking. age of puberty. More than 6% of young smokers consume more than six cigarettes per day. As for the electronic cigarette, 10.9% of these adolescents use it.
The report clearly indicates that cigarette smoking begins when children and adolescents are unaware of the harmful effects of smoking on health as well as the addictive effect of nicotine.
Also according to this study, the prevalence of smoking among 13-15 year olds has remained the same in recent years despite multiple awareness campaigns. Ease of access is one of the factors that encourage young people to smoke. Half of these minors admit to buying tobacco in shops and 8 in 10 young smokers say they buy their cigarettes at retail.
The warning from the Saudi Ministry of Health is not to the taste of the World Health Organization. This country has warned its fellow citizens of the potential danger of the plague epidemic raging in the Indian Ocean region and to avoid traveling to Madagascar, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
In an article published on Arab News on November 6, the newspaper took up a post from the Twitter account of the Saudi Arabian health minister. He urges his fellow citizens to take precautions if they travel to the islands of the Indian Ocean: Madagascar, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
This warning is not to the taste of the World Health Organization (WHO), however. For Dr Laurent Musango, WHO representative in Mauritius, this warning “is not justified”. He says that for several weeks, things have been moving in the right direction and that there is rapid care for the sick in Madagascar. “The WHO has never banned flights to Madagascar and even less to Mauritius,” he said. Dr Musango also told us that the WHO representative in Saudi Arabia will write to the Saudi Ministry of Health to deny the information published.
The Mauritius Ministry of Health points out that various measures have been taken both at the port and at the airport to prevent plague in the country. “Vigilance and surveillance measures have been taken since the plague epidemic was declared in Madagascar. “
The ministry stresses that it is aware of the situation and that there is regular monitoring of the situation. And to conclude that an isolation room has been set up at Souillac hospital for the management of any suspected case of plague detected in Mauritius.
On the Saudi Airlines side, an agent assured us that no flight or trip cancellations have been noted since the publication of the Arab News article.
The Papiliorama Foundation carried out a new nocturnal control of the tropical garden and caught two new individuals, males soon to be adults. This discovery follows that of several Leopard Geckos in the dome of the Papiliorama a few weeks ago.
This discovery still does not determine if a breeding population of this species has actually settled, or if the illegal release consisted of a large number of young. The number of night checks will be increased in the coming months.
A couple filmed an interview with a gynecologist with a hidden camera. He is said to have prescribed an abortion pill to the woman when she wanted to keep the baby.
She accuses her gynecologist, Dr Abdool Yusuf Boodhoo, of having prescribed the Cytotec tablet and made an injection, voluntarily terminating her pregnancy without her knowledge. Ameera Haujee, a 34-year-old resident of Plaine-Verte, says she has a video accusing the doctor. She filed a complaint against the gynecologist at the Plaine-Verte police station on Friday, August 12, and is awaiting an appointment with the IT department of the police to file the video recording for analysis. The 30-year-old maintains that at no time did she ask the gynecologist to have her abortion.
The mother of a three-year-old child from a first union, Ameera decided to start a new life on August 22, 2015. She married Abdool Hafiz Haujee, a 44-year-old merchant. Some time later, she noticed that she hadn’t had a period for three weeks. On Thursday, August 4, she went to Dr. Boodhoo’s consulting room at rue Cité Laval in Plaine-Verte.
“After learning that I was pregnant, I told Dr. Boodhoo that I wanted to babysit. He offered me a hip injection to complete my pregnancy. I accepted and he prescribed Cytotec to me. Li finn dir mwa bwar kat konprime by zour ek introduce from dan mo intim party ”, explains Ameera. But after following the medical instructions to the letter, the young woman begins to experience excruciating pain in the abdomen.
Monday August 8, accompanied by her husband, Ameera returns to see the gynecologist around 10 p.m. He does an ultrasound and tells them that she had a miscarriage, the six-week-old fetus being turned into a blood clot. “Dokter-la dir mwa mo bizin fer kirtaz pli vit posib dan klinik ek li pou kout Rs 40,000. Mo husband ek mwa dir nou pena mwayen ek fer nou won enn papie pou amenn mwa lopital. Li refize ek dir ki lopital pa pou earn good tretman. “
Having been unable to collect the requested sum and the gynecologist not having provided adequate care, the couple decided to return to the doctor, with a hidden camera this time. “Mo finn paunch ki dokter iron intansionelman pou kapav tir kas avek nou dan klinik. Samem mo finn anrezistre li “, explains Yusuf, Ameera’s husband.
On the video, we see husband and wife tell the gynecologist that they never asked for a termination of pregnancy and that they wanted to keep the baby. For his part, Dr. Boodhoo replied that he had prescribed Cytotec for an abortion.
As Ameera’s health deteriorated, her husband took her to the Plaine-Verte police station on Thursday 11 August. She denounces the gynecologist before being rushed to Dr A. G. Jeetoo hospital, where she is undergoing curettage. In the days that followed, she underwent another surgery. The 30-year-old is still admitted to the treatment room.
The police have opened an investigation and are awaiting the medical report to decide what to do. The investigators plan to summon the gynecologist.
Conflicts with the law
Dr. Abdool Yusuf Boodhoo was found guilty of manslaughter after one of his patients, Bibi Taslimah Baba Saib, died from a cesarean section in 2005. He appealed against his conviction. He was released after paying bail. Since the death of Bibi Taslimah Baba Saib, he has been suspended from his duties at the hospital, but still works in the private sector.
Dr. Boodhoo admits to having made mistakes
When asked, Dr. Boodhoo refuted the allegations of abortion. However, he admits to having made some professional mistakes. He claims that he would have been persuaded by his patient to prescribe Cytotec for a voluntary termination of pregnancy. According to the gynecologist, the young woman was not pregnant when he did an ultrasound and the blood test indicated that there was a “weak pregancy”, difficult to detect. “I leave it to justice to shed light on this affair. I’m the victim. “
