Q: 

Why do people get sick more often in the winter?

A: Being cold reduces your body''s resistance to germs. Your body needs to be maintained at a temperature of around 37 degrees celsius. Although I don''t know how the exact mechanism works, my hypothesis is that when your body temperature is in danger of being lowered, your body works much harder to keep it at 37 degrees (hence shivering and what not). It spends a lot more energy than it needs to. And the thing is that this coldness isn''t only for a few hours, it''s for a period of months. All this energy spent on protecting your body from the cold probably lowers its resistance to other pathogens. Try sitting in front of an air conditioner after your shower in the summer, you''ll probably get...

Q: 

how do people get meningitis?

A: Were you sick at all before you got meningitis? Sometimes following a viral illness like measles or mumps you can get meningitis. But because of vaccinations, this is now rare. Chickenpox can lead to meningitis as well. Rarely, sinus infections can. Some other causes are multiple sclerosis, strokes, leukemia, lead poisoning, certain medications, chemotherapy and reactions to vaccines.

Q: 

What's staff infection and how do you get it?

A: Staphylococci are gram-positive, aerobic organisms. Staphylococcus aureus is the most pathogenic; it typically causes skin infections and sometimes pneumonia, endocarditis, and osteomyelitis. It commonly leads to abscess formation. Some strains elaborate toxins that cause gastroenteritis, scalded skin syndrome, and toxic shock syndrome. Diagnosis is by Gram stain and culture. Treatment is usually with penicillinase-resistant ?-lactams, but because antibiotic resistance is common, Vancomycin may be required. Some strains are resistant to all but the newest ribosome-targeted antibiotics (eg, Linezolid, quinupristin plus dalfopristin) or Daptomycin (a lipopeptide antibiotic).(Merck) Please see the web pages for more details and images on...
