Aureus in children

Staphylococcus aureus most often affects young children with weakened immune systems or other opportunistic infections. Most staph, salmonella, and E. coli found in children with dysbacteriosis. Thus, it is a violation of local immunity are the main cause of staph infections doxycycline hyclate 100.

It is noteworthy that staphylococci are extremely resistant to many antibiotics, so there is always a risk that the child is ill septic disease.

How can a child be infected with staphylococcus? Bearers of this dangerous bacteria are both sick and healthy people, because there are different forms of carrier infections (temporary and permanent). Course of the disease can also occur in the lungs and severe. Staphylococcus aureus causes sepsis, meningitis, pneumonia, abscesses and purulent inflammation of the skin and other tissues. With the generalization of the inflammatory process in newborn infants often develop septicemia.

The notion that the microorganism only affects the intestines by mistake. Objects defeat extreme variability of staphylococcal infection: upper and lower respiratory tract, mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, intestines, skin, bone and cartilage, etc.

Children's bodies are striking staphylococci three groups:

Staphylococcus epidermidis. Among the species of staphylococci, epidermal has an average infectious potential. It is found on the skin and mucous membranes, but in normal operation immunity carrier does not manifest itself. Symptoms of bacterial destruction occur only if the carrier is weakened immunity: after myocardial surgery, viral disease, etc. Newborns, especially premature babies exposed to infection in particular.

Saprophytic staphylococcus. The least hazardous to health. Almost does not occur in children, because the main "target" - organs of the excretory system.

Staphylococcus aureus. The most dangerous and highly virulent microorganism. In normal healthy children Staphylococcus aureus resides in a latent state. Of all the species of microorganisms most aggressive.

In most cases (from 48% to 78%) is the staph bacteria are the cause of inflammatory diseases of the airways, often occurring in children.

Staphylococcal pneumonia can occur after infection of the child in a hospital or maternity ward. The disease often develops at lightning speed, with the destruction of lung tissue and other complications. The toxins produced by staphylococcus, cause severe intoxication of the organism, which, combined with pneumonia causes a disturbance of the respiratory and circulatory systems. Sick child is restless, tossing in bed, can moan and scream. The characteristic symptoms are also fever, sweating, dry cough and facial puffiness.

Staphylococcal enterocolitis is an extremely severe intestinal disease. In 13% of cases it ends in death. Disease susceptible to premature and weak children. Provoke it also transferred earlier acute respiratory diseases, receiving antibiotics, artificial feeding and violations biocenosis intestine.
