If you distribute the frequency of diseases that threaten the baby, then one of the first places will be pneumonia – pneumonia. This is an infectious disease of a bacterial or bacterial – viral nature, and any microorganisms, including even conditionally pathogenic ones, can cause it. And contact with them is almost inevitable for the child, and the whole question is whether his defenses will be sufficient to resist.
The condition of the child is closely related to the state of the mother, the course of pregnancy. If the mother suffers from some kind of inflammatory disease, the fetus comes into contact with the infection already in utero. This happens when he advances through the birth canal.

Propagating, they have an adverse effect on the body; Continue reading
The causes of psoriasis, although widely studied in different countries, are still reliably unknown. There is evidence of a hereditary predisposition to this disease, that it is based on a violation of the immune status – a weakening of the body’s defenses. It is suggested that the disease causes the virus, but it has not yet been isolated. A significant role in the development of psoriasis is given to disorders of the central nervous and endocrine systems.
Insufficient knowledge of the exact cause of the disease, as well as the factors causing its exacerbation, and explains the difficulties that have to be encountered in the treatment of psoriasis.

The effect of cold on the entire surface of the body, when its temperature drops below 35 °, causes general cooling of the body. The prolonged action of low temperatures can lead to freezing, while the functions of the body are inhibited, up to their complete extinction. However, one should not think that during freezing the body temperature reaches zero. A person dies when his body temperature drops to 17 – 25 °.
The body becomes less resistant to cooling during starvation, significant fatigue, intoxication, getting into cold water, as well as after injuries, blood loss, It is noticed that hypothermia occurs faster in old people and children. High humidity, strong wind, especially if a person is dressed in light, tight or wet clothes, contribute to cold injury.
The onset of general cooling has characteristic signs – agitation, chills, blueness of the lips, pallor and cooling of the skin, “goose bumps”, shortness of breath, increased heart rate. Continue reading
