Leading experts warned in August that up to 12,000 Danes could be infected with antibiotic-resistance MRSA and now there is evidence that the infections have spread to society’s weakest members: newborn babies. Tinna Urth, a hygienic nurse with the North Denmark Region’s MRSA unit and a consultant to the Danish State Serum Institute (SSI), told Ingeniøren on Thursday that at least thirteen infants in northern Jutland have been infected with the bacteria. In all instances, the children’s parents work in the swine industry. Urth said that six newborns contracted eye infections while four others received outer ear infections. Urth said she was also aware of three other … [Read more...] about Over a dozen babies infected with MRSA
A pimple in the ear can be painful and uncomfortable. Pimples usually go away on their own, but some treatments can speed up the healing process. Pimples can occur on the ear, behind the ear, or inside the ear canal. In this article, we talk about what causes ear pimples, how to get rid of them, and how to prevent them from coming back. Pimples, also called whiteheads, zits, or blackheads are most common on the face and back, but they can show up almost anywhere. The outer ear and external ear canal have skin cells, hair cells, and oil-producing glands, which are all it takes for a pimple to form. Pimples appear when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells and sebum, which is the natural oil that protects the skin and keeps it moist. Bacteria can also cause pimples, so anything that introduces bacteria or dirt into the ear can cause pimples. Causes of pimples in the ear include: exposure to a dirty or dusty environment glands in the ear producing too much oil sharing earbuds with … [Read more...] about How to remove a pimple in your ear

Adenopathy is any disease or inflammation that involves glandular tissue or lymph nodes. The term is usually used to refer to lymphadenopathy or swollen lymph nodes. Unlike the tear glands in the eye or sweat glands in the skin, the lymph nodes do not produce and release chemicals. Instead, the lymph nodes work as a group to carry lymph throughout the body. Lymph carries white blood cells around the body to fight off germs and other foreign invaders. Lymph nodes filter fluids from the body with this lymph, which helps the body fight off infections and other diseases. Though there are hundreds of lymph nodes in a person's body, only a few can be felt. Many people notice that the lymph nodes in their neck or armpits swell when they have an infection, for example, the cold or flu viruses. This is because the lymph nodes are filling with immune cells and waste from the germs. Other groups of lymph nodes that may be felt when they swell are near the back of the head, belly, or groin.
