What is Typhus? An infection or bacteria

What is Typhus?

Typhus fevers are caused by the rickettsiae bacteria and is transmitted through arthropod bites such as flea, tick, or mite bites. These bites are usually very itchy, and by scratching them, the skin is opened, allowing the bacteria to enter into the bloodstream, where it can grow and multiply.

Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and headaches. The No Mo Nausea Band is a great and inexpensive way of relieving those symptoms fast! The acupressure in the band targets anti-nausea receptors in the brain that stop nausea instantly, while the peppermint aromatherapy opens vessels in the brain to relieve headaches and calms the smooth muscle in your gut, stopping the retching feeling to prevent puking. Besides being all-natural, another great thing about the No Mo Nausea Band is that it’s available in both adult and kid sizes, so everyone can get fast-acting relief!

Enjoy your fury friend without worring about Typhus. Preventative measures are wildly important. Make sure your cat or dog gets flea and tick medicine regularly. Cover all wounds to prevent infection. And most importantly see ypur physician if an unusual rash appears like the one pictured below.

Rash (Pityriasis Rosea) affecting youth BEWARE: What's that on your skin?

Skin rash (Pityriasis Rosea) affecting those in their 20s

Pityriasis Rosea is a common skin problem that causes a rash and occurs most often in those between the ages of 10 and 35. The cause of pityriasis rosea is unknown; however, even though it is a skin condition, it is not an allergic reaction or caused by a fungus or bacteria. This skin rash usually begins as one large circular or oval spot on your chest, abdomen or back, called a herald patch. Before the herald patch appears, some people experience a sore throat or fever. The rash can cause itching which is occasionally severe, but it usually goes away on its own within six weeks.

During those 6 weeks try natural rememdies to ease the itch. Try Selson Blue shampoo to the affected area in the shower, an oatmeal bath, followed by aloe vera when done. Acupressure at the crease of the arm has also been linked to decrease itch. Apply the No Mo Nausea Band to the point stated above to have No Mo Itch.
