Mycoplasmosis: Symptoms and Treatment
Mycoplasmosis is a chronic diseasegenitourinary system (most often, but not only), which is caused by mycoplasmas. Microscopic parasites, mycoplasmas, inhabit both humans and animals. The overwhelming majority of the victims of the disease are women, because the male organism is capable of self-healing from this type of disease, but, alas, not always. In the body can live up to sixteen types of mycoplasmas, six of which are the causative agent of mycoplasmosis. Symptoms of the disease may not be shown for years, but with the appearance of immunodeficiency become noticeable. This disease is gradually developing, but does not immediately reveal itself. Women and men have different manifestations of mycoplasmosis. Symptoms characteristic of this disease in women: from the vagina are translucent, lean secretions, there is a variable pain with burning and tingling with urination, which increases before menstruation. Such symptoms are often mistakenly regarded as signs of cystitis. However mycoplasmas do their work, and gradually the immunity of the urino-genital female system affected by them decreases, and various pathologies such as adnexitis, abscesses, mycoplasmosis progress. Symptoms intensify not only during menstruation, but also menopause, various hormonal failures.
Mycoplasmosis in the stronger sex goes in parallel withsymptoms of urethritis, and urethritis, consistent with this disease, is lethargic, but for a long time. Usually this disease occurs along with such as chlamydia, trichomidiasis and ureplasmosis. From time to time, especially in the morning, discharge from the urethra in the form of mucus. When urinating, the pain is negligible. Sometimes the head of the penis may be as if filled with blood (hyperemic). The complication that occurs much more often than others is prostatitis. Over time, the libido falls. Prostatitis appears gradually, but impotence also gradually comes, which may well become a consequence of such a disease.
From the moment of infection for thirteen weeks with chronic mycoplasmosis, the person spreads the resulting infection around him by airborne droplets.Respiratory mycoplasmosis differently affectson people, depending on their genetic data and the resistance of the body. If adults can get sick with airborne droplets (and that's not all - it depends on the strength of the immune system), then children can get infected even through tactile contact. Signs that the patient has respiratory mycoplasmosis: the temperature is raised for a while, the throat is perspiration and reddened, a runny nose is abundantly sweaty. If you run - the inflammation descends into the bronchi, it will cause a cough - dry, intense, with little secretion of phlegm. If the disease is not stopped at this stage, it is fraught with pneumonia with all the consequences.
Treatment of mycoplasmosis - is primarily a stimulation of immunity to the fight. For this, the best antibiotics are tetracycline and erythromycin.
Unfortunately, not only humans, but also quadrupedsfriends of a person can also get sick with such a disease as mycoplasmosis. Symptoms in infected dogs concern their urogenital system. Sexually transmitted and less common congenital form. Less often, because much more often the affected fetus is absorbed or aborted in the womb of the female. There is also an airborne drop route. Mycoplasmosis proceeds differently in bitches and males. The females repeat the vaginitis, which is very difficult to treat by the classical method, and pregnancy often ends in miscarriages and stillborn calves. In males - decreased ability to reproduce, complications - swelling of the scrotum, prostatitis, urethritis, as well as balanoposthitis and orchoepididymitis. In a word, mycoplasmosis in dogs is an obstacle to the reproduction of a new generation of animals. If the zone affected by the disease expands, it is possible that the joints are damaged by its pathogens. If the mycoplasmosis, leaving the primary lesion, affects the joints, then the following symptoms appear: joint swelling in the animal, lameness, complete reluctance to move, and pain in the joints. Besides dogs, hand rats and domestic cats are often ill with this ailment. Mycoplasmosis in dogs is treated with the use of certain antibiotics: tylosin, levomycetin, tetracycline and some others. Immunostimulants will not be superfluous in fighting the disease. Respiratory mycoplasmosis is possible only in calves or in those adults whose ciliary bronchi apparatus is affected.
