Anthrax is a disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis, a bacterium that has the ability to form spores; spores are cells that are essentially dormant (asleep) but may become active under certain conditions. Anthrax disease can take 3 forms:
Signs and Symptoms
Angular cheilitis can be found in the corners of the mouth. A patient may notice:
Cracking and fissuring of the corners of the mouth, with redness
Drainage of pus
Tissue softness and tenderness
Involving the skin (cutaneous)
Involving the lungs (inhalational)
Involving the digestive system (gastrointestinal)
Treatments Your Physician May Prescribe
Your doctor can diagnose anthrax by testing your blood, respiratory secretions, or wounds. The diagnosis may be difficult to make without history of exposure, so be sure to tell your doctor if you think you may have come into contact with B. anthracis or if you meet any of the above risk factors.
Athlete's foot (tinea pedis), also known as ringworm of the foot, is a surface (superficial) fungal infection of the skin of the foot. The most common fungal disease in humans, athlete's foot, may be passed to humans by direct contact with infected people, infected animals, contaminated objects (such as towels or locker room floors), or the soil.
Signs and Symptoms
The most common locations for athlete's foot include:
Spaces (webs) between the toes, especially between the 4th and 5th toes and between the 3rd and 4th toes
Soles of the feet
Tops of the feet
Babies can develop blemishes on their face that looks exactly like acne commonly seen in teens. Although the cause of baby acne is unknown, it may be the result of maternal or infant hormones stimulating glands in the face to produce oil, or sebum. Baby acne can essentially be divided into 2 groups: neonatal acne, which affects babies in their first month of life; and infantile acne, which typically affects babies 3–16 months of age. Neonatal acne that is confined to the face is called benign cephalic pustulosis, while infantile acne is usually more severe than neonatal acne and consists of more lesions. The later form may last a few weeks to a few months, but most cases usually resolve by age 3.
Signs and Symptoms
A bedsore appears first as a reddened area of skin, which then starts to break down to form an open, raw, oozing wound.
Bedsores occur at areas of abnormal pressure on the body:
In a wheelchair, this is usually the tailbone (coccyx) or buttocks area, shoulder blades, spine, or backs of the arms or legs.
In a bed, they may occur on the back of the head, ears, shoulder blades, hips, lower back, tailbone, or the backs or sides of the knees, elbows, ankles, or toes.
Who's At Risk
People who cannot move themselves are at the greatest risk of getting bedsores, including people with:
Spinal cord injury
Nerve (neurologic) disease
Decreased mental awareness
(pressure ulcers), also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers, result from prolonged pressure that cuts off the blood supply to the skin, causing the skin and other tissue to die. The damage may occur in as little time as 12 hours of pressure, but it might not be noticed until days later when the skin begins to break down. The skin is especially likely to develop pressure sores if it is exposed to rubbing (friction) and moving the skin in one direction and the body in another (shear), as in sliding down when the bed head is raised. Dampness (such as from perspiration or incontinence) makes the skin even more liable to develop pressure sores.
