Chloraprep Bacterial Infection Causes and Reviews
Bacteria are living things that have only one cell. Under a microscope, they look like balls, rods, or spirals. They are so small that a line of 1,000 could fit across a pencil eraser. Most bacteria won't hurt you - less than 1 percent of the different types make people sick. Many are helpful. Some bacteria help to digest food, destroy disease-causing cells, and give the body needed vitamins. Bacteria are also used in making healthy foods like yogurt and cheese.
But infectious bacteria can make you ill. They reproduce quickly in your body. Many give off chemicals called toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Examples of bacteria that cause infections include Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and E. coli.
Antibiotics are the usual treatment. When you take antibiotics, follow the directions carefully. Each time you take antibiotics, you increase the chances that bacteria in your body will learn to resist them causing antibiotic resistance. Later, you could get or spread an infection that those antibiotics cannot cure.

Chloraprep Bacterial Infection Reviews
|Tue, 03 Aug 2010|
|I had surgery to repair a collapsed Radius bone after a fracture and had Chloraprep used on me from my left hand to above my elbow. The second day after surgery, you could see a whelt under the top part of the dressing the docotr had applied. By the third day, I had to call the doctor. The had me remove the dressing which revealed blisters all along the incision area and the rest of the arm was swollen and covered with a raised red rash. Since I had the surgery done and hour and a half away from where I live, the sent me to the ER at the local hospital. They thought I had a Bacterial Infection so started dosing me with IV antibiotics which did no good. After 2 trips to my doctor, and several prescriptions, my arm is finally on the mend. I was finally prescribed oral prednisone after the prescription cortizone cream failed to work. I was also prescribed a high dose of antihistimine. I still have a problem with going into the sun or heat. As soon as I walk outside and the sun hits my skin, I get the rash adn itching all over again. Hopefully this will be a temporary thing. It said on the Chloraprep web site that if this happens to contact your doctor because it could be something else..........going to research that!|
