Top 9 Wound From Dog Causes

  1. 1.Diarrhea Caused by a Bacteria Called Vibrio

    Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a bacterium in the same family as those that cause cholera and Vibrio vulnificus. It can be contracted by consuming raw or undercooked shellfish, or exposure to sea or brackish water, and causes gastrointestinal illness (i.e. diarrhea often with abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, fever and chills) in humans.

    You can safely treat this infection by drinking lots of fluids to avoid dehydration from diarrhea. An over-the-counter antidiarrheal medication such as loperamide (Imodium) can help as well.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    diarrhea, nausea, stomach bloating, headache, abdominal cramps (stomach cramps)
    Symptoms that always occur with diarrhea caused by a bacteria called vibrio:
    diarrhea
    Urgency:
    Self-treatment
  2. 2.Tularemia (Deer Fly Fever)

    Tularemia is a rare infectious disease that can attack the skin, eyes, lymph nodes, lungs and, less often, other internal organs. It can spread to humans through insect bites or direct exposure to an infected animal.

    You should seek immediate medical care at an urgent care clinic or ER. It is highly contagious and potentially fatal, but can be treated effectively with specific antibiotics if diagnoses early.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    fever, fatigue, being severely ill, nausea or vomiting, chills
    Symptoms that always occur with tularemia (deer fly fever):
    fever, being severely ill
    Urgency:
    Hospital emergency room
  3. 3.Mononucleosis Infection

    EBV Mononucleosis is a clinical syndrome characterized by fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes.

    You should visit your primary care physician within the next 24 hours. Diagnosis is confirmed by looking for antibodies against EBV. Treatment involves supportive care (hydration, antipyretics, and analgesics, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen). Aspirin should not be given to children because of the possibility of Reye syndrome. It is also recommended that you do not do any strenuous physical activity and contact sports in the initial 3 to 4 weeks of illness due to the potential for splenic rupture.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, abdominal pain (stomach ache), cough
    Symptoms that never occur with mononucleosis infection:
    rectal bleeding
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  4. 4.Common Cold

    The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract.

    The common cold is treated symptomatically. Since this is a viral infection, antibiotics are not effective. You can safely treat the symptoms of this condition with over-the-counter pain relievers, decongestants, antihistamines & cough medicines.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, headache, cough, sore throat, congestion
    Symptoms that never occur with common cold:
    being severely ill, severe muscle aches, rash, severe headache

When the diarrhea and/or vomiting is severe, dehydration can occur. Symptoms of dehydration include a dry mouth, dizziness, urinating less frequently and dark urine.

    You can safely treat this condition at home. Make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids (Gatorade, Pediatlyte) to replace what is lost with diarrhea. If symptoms of dehydration occur or you are unable to keep down any liquids, seek care at your primary care physician or an urgent care.

    You can safely treat this condition at home. Make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids to replace what is lost with diarrhea. Eat as normally as possible. If symptoms of dehydration occur, or you are unable to keep down any liquids, seek care at your primary care physician or an urgent care.

  9. 9.Strep Throat Requiring Throat Swab

    Strep throat is a bacterial throat infection that can make the throat feel sore and scratchy. Only a small portion of sore throats are the result of strep throat. And, if you do not show enough signs of a true strep throat, testing may be needed before treatment is begun.

    You should visit your primary care physician within the next 24 hours, where a diagnosis can be made via a "rapid antigen test" (it's a throat swab). Treatment with simple antibiotics would be given only if the test is positive. It is important to get treatment, however, because of the possibility of getting a disease called "rheumatic fever" after the strep throat infection.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, nausea, sore throat, fever, rash
    Symptoms that always occur with strep throat requiring throat swab:
