http://www.pctonline.com How Bed Bug Bite Reactions Differ

Bed Bug Bite Reactions differ source: http://www.pctonline.com/article/pct1214-bed-bugs-bite-allergic-reactions  from person to person. Pest Control Pros can inspect and test your home or business setting for bed bugs that may have been brought into your environment. Here is a article from Pest Control Technology

Bed bug victims can have no skin reaction at all, a minor inflammation, a complex skin reaction or a systemic allergic reaction.

Bed bugs affect people in a number of ways, but perhaps the most important are various skin reactions and allergic reactions. True allergic reactions are rare from bed bug bites, and anaphylactic shock is even rarer; however, people often claim that severe bite reactions are allergic (but sometimes this is not the case). The presence of itchy, red bumps, and even blood blisters, are more common. This brief article attempts to classify in laymen’s terms the various reactions resulting from bed bug bites.

Actually, the most common response to a bed bug bite appears to be no skin reaction at all, with a barely visible tiny hole (punctum) at the location of the bite. Research studies have shown that anywhere from 30 to 60 percent of people bitten by bed bugs have no reaction whatsoever. Common skin reactions for which medical attention is sought are usually 2- to 5-mm itchy red spots at bed bug feeding sites, one per insect. These usually itch, and if not abraded, resolve within a week or so. The size and itchiness associated with these common reactions may increase in some individuals who experience repeated bites. I have known several people who said bed bug bite reactions are extremely itchy.

Complex Skin Reactions.

Some patients may experience complex skin reactions. Reports of these have included itchy wheals (local urticarial or hives) around a central punctum, itchy small red bumps, or diffuse hives at bite sites usually noted or arising in the morning. Blister-like rashes may occur upon new biting events days later. In some cases, these reactions evolve into itchy papules or nodules (hard bumps) that when scratched may become infected (impetiginous) and persist for weeks. These “secondary infections” from scratching bed bug bites can become quite serious and require medical care.

The timing of cutaneous reactions to bed bugs may change with multiple exposures. This appears to reflect host immunological responses to the proteins in bed bug saliva. In other words, the person is becoming more sensitized to the bites each time. One of the original bed bug researchers, Robert Usinger, fed a colony of bed bugs on himself weekly for seven years and noted that his reactions progressed from delayed to immediate, with no evidence of desensitization. The time required for breaking out in a rash got shorter each time due to him becoming more sensitive to the bites.

For another example, one hotel guest noticed isolated macules (flat red spots) after her first visit to a hotel. After a second stay at the same hotel one year later, macules again appeared but this time changed over the next three days into crops of red nodules with blisters. She was skin tested by an allergist with a bed bug salivary gland extract a year after the second hotel stay. Dermal injection of increasing concentrations of the extract resulted in a dose-related increase in the size of the reactions that occurred within 20 minutes of injection. These wheal and flare reactions developed into papular reactions after another 24 hours. The most concentrated salivary solution caused a big papule on her skin with a blister, showing that the reaction was indeed due to substances contained in the bed bug saliva. In more recent research, at least three salivary proteins have been identified that may play a role in these host immunological responses: nitrophorin, a 17-kDa anticoagulant called Factor X and a 40-kDa apyrase-like nucleotide-binding enzyme.

Systemic Allergic Reactions.

There are a few reports of systemic allergic reactions from bed bug bites, for instance asthma, generalized hives and anaphylaxis. Some authors have suggested that generalized (allergic) hives from bed bug bites is not that unusual. One man staying in a hotel awakened during the night with severe itching and hives on his arm and neck; bed bugs were found in the room. He developed what appeared to be some sort of anaphylactic shock, was hospitalized and had transient anterolateral ischemia on electrocardiogram (it appeared he had a heart attack). Eight months later, after an experimental bed bug bite in the clinic, he developed a wheal at the bite site and generalized itching severe enough to require epinephrine administration to resolve his symptoms. A home evaluation of another man who had asthma revealed bed bugs in his bedding and an intradermal allergy skin test with an extract of bed bugs showed positive results. When his bedding was changed, the asthma attacks ceased.

Only physicians should give medical treatment advice. Treatments of common and complex cutaneous reactions are usually just symptomatic, aimed at relieving inflammation and itching. Typically physicians recommend that bite sites be washed with soap and water to help prevent secondary infection. If skin lesions are severely itchy, they often suggest topical application of over-the-counter or prescription anti-itch medications or intermediate potency corticosteroids (such as triamcinolone) may be helpful. Sites that appear to be secondarily infected may benefit from topical antibiotic creams or systemic antibiotics as appropriate.

https://www.osha.gov Mold Fungus

Here is some information on Mold Fungus that can help you better understand the difference between mold and fungi. Mold Remediation Baltimore Pros  will help you identify this for a free no charge inspection. Here is the source of the below article that will help you understand it all better. Source : https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/molds/

Molds are fungi that are found everywhere – both indoors and outdoors all year round. The terms fungi and mold are often used interchangeably, but mold is actually a type of fungi. Concern about indoor exposure to mold has increased along with public awareness that exposure to mold can cause a variety of adverse health effects. There are many thousands of species of mold and most if not all of the mold found indoors comes from outdoor sources. It seems likely to grow and become a problem only when there is water damage, high humidity, or dampness.

Molds produce and release millions of spores small enough to be air-, water-, or insect-borne. They can also produce toxic agents known as mycotoxins. Spores and mycotoxins can have negative effects on human health. For those people who are affected by mold exposures there can be a wide variation in how they react. People at greatest risk of health effects are individuals with allergies, asthma, sinusitis, or other respiratory conditions, as well as infants and children, elderly people, and pregnant women. In addition, individuals with a weakened immune system are at risk.

Mold is addressed in specific standards for the general industry, shipyard employment, and the construction industry.

Infowars Doctor Acknowledges the Hidden Health Dangers of Mold and Yeast

Infowars Doctor Acknowledges the Hidden Health Dangers of Mold and Yeast

In a video published on YouTube on March 11 of 2007, Infowars reporter Millie Weaver interviewed Dr. Edward F. Group III. The topic was the hidden health dangers of mold and yeast. Here at MoldBlogger, we may not agree with every perspective presented on Infowars, but when it comes to fungi—specifically, a publicized discussion on it—we’re more than willing to lend an ear.

“Doctor” or Doctor?

Before we begin, let’s ask an important question: Is he a real doctor? Let’s take a look at Dr. Edward Group’s credentials:

• Doctor of Chiropractic (DC):

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

DCs—often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians­­—practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.1

• Naturopathic Physician/Doctor (NP/ND interchangeably):

NDs combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. …Naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.

NDs treat all medical conditions and can provide both individual and family health care. Among the most common ailments they treat are allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. NDs can perform minor surgeries, such as removing cysts or stitching up superficial wounds. However, they do not practice major surgery. NDs are trained to utilize prescription drugs, although the emphasis of naturopathic medicine is the use of natural healing agents.2

• Diplomate of the American Clinical Board of Nutrition (DACBN):

A DACBN must be certified through the American Clinical Board of Nutrition (ACBN), which is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Those who are furnished with DACBN credentials by the NCCA are known to exhibit the highest quality of standards within their specialized practice.3

• Diplomate of the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (DCBCN):

A DCBCN must be certified through an approved post-doctoral program in nutrition (of at least 300 credit hours) that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. A certifying exam is then administered by the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN). Upon passing, the DCBCN’s mission is to “secure, protect, and advance clinical nutrition in the chiropractic profession while serving to enhance the health of the people [they] serve and the population at large.”4

• Diplomate of the American Board of Functional Medicine (DABFM):

In order to receive a DABFM certification status, a candidate must meet the rigorous standards of the American Board of Functional Medicine (ABFM), including 300 post-graduate hours of work in functional medicine. The ABFM prides itself on providing a code of professional regulations for ensuring the highest degree of ethical and moral practice. DABFMs are intensely monitored by the Board to ensure they are meeting the requirements of this code in order for patients to be guaranteed the highest quality care. The mission of the Board and of each DABFM is to “enhance a greater clinical understanding of biological function & clinical nutrition among physicians and healthcare professionals with a common interest in functional medicine and to promote the application of such knowledge to ensure greater patient outcomes and doctor satisfaction.”5

 

On average, the education and certification requirements that necessitate such credentials, ensures that schooling and training will extend at least 8 years beyond high school. In addition, such licensure requires annual continuing education (CE) credits through state-approved programs. In other words, yes, the advice we are hearing is from a real doctor.

The Interview

Millie Weaver begins the interview by asking Dr. Group about MYCO-ZX—an antifungal combination of herbs, compounds, and enzymes that you can read about here. After a brief introduction to his product, Dr. Group shares that for the past 15 years in his own practice, he has discovered that a large portion of his patients were suffering from chronic fungal infections. He makes the assertion that most people—“in fact, most doctors and hospitals,” he says—aren’t familiar with mold and yeast health issues. He claims that they do not take the time and effort to check their patients for fungal infections. Later in the interview, he states, “What most people out there in the allopathic, medicinal, [and] hospital [realm do, is] just address the symptoms and not the actual cause…Medications—antifungal medications—are extremely damaging to the body, [especially] the liver.”

Dr. Group explains that the body was designed with a self-healing mechanism, but that it cannot function optimally with the standard American diet (SAD), as well as within the health-damaging environment we must endure. “Because of toxic air, toxic water, toxic food, our self-healing mechanism is suppressed, our immune system is down, our livers are congested, our bowel and our gut health is very poor…We’re not taking probiotics, we’re not eating live food, we’re not supporting our gut or liver.” He says people are consuming so much sugar, refined carbohydrates, soda, alcohol, and every other typical SAD excuse for food, that they are not only exposed to mycotoxic microorganisms (fungi) in the gut, but the continual ingestion of these toxic foods only perpetuates the problem because they feed the organisms and cause an overgrowth that the body’s immune system simply cannot handle. As an example, Dr. Group explains that when he specifically targets his male patients who are over 40 and asks them how they feel in the afternoons, they ironically “complain of fatigue [and] lethargy.” In what seems to be exasperation, he says, “But they’re all going out at night for drinks and have poor diets!”

He continues, “When you combine all the chemicals and toxins in the food supply and…beverages….[and see] different fungus organisms that are being sprayed in the air, found in the water, found on cellphones now—so what I’ve been trying to let people know is that—there really is this epidemic. And the sad thing about it is when you’re dealing with these fungal problems, a lot of times, you never even know.” He then claims that he’s identified “probably close to a hundred different symptoms [that] are all attributed to some form of yeast…or mold.”

Below is a brief list he shared of a few symptoms that most patients and doctors won’t recognize as fungal issues:

• Fatigue
• “Brain fog”
• Skin conditions (peeling, itching, acne, rash)
• Difficulty with vision
• Weight gain
• Symptoms mistaken for allergies
• Chronic sinus issues (runny nose, congestion)
• Anxiety and panic attacks (even possibly-misdiagnosed mental illnesses)

“It’s really sad,” he says, “because…I hear this story over and over again: ‘I’ve been going to the doctor for 5 years, I’ve been to multiple doctors—nobody can tell me what’s wrong with me.’”

Millie Weaver asks, “What are the long-term ill-effects of having a prolonged case of a candida or fungal overgrowth in your body?”

“It’s a slow death,” he says. Group explains that fungal microorganisms don’t “kill…right away,” but they do “incapacitate” you. “It could take 3–6 months before you even start developing symptoms…. These are debilitating organisms that will affect you over a long period of time. [They] are precursors to cancer,…diabetes,…digestive health issues, hormone imbalance problems, heart disease problems, liver problems.”

“All these organisms secrete toxins,” says Group. He supplies candida yeast, as an example, stating that it, alone, can secret up to 80 different toxins. “[These organisms] take your nutrients in and then push out all these harmful, chemical toxins—usually acidic toxins—that can burn holes in the gut tissue, as well as circulate in the blood stream and cause toxemia in the system.”

In a roundabout way, Weaver essentially asks Group, “What can be done?”

Group recommends:

• Don’t just treat the symptoms
• Don’t damage the body more (poor diet, lack of exercise, little sleep)
• Commit to a fungus cleanse every 3 months
• Take nutritional supplements (MYCO-ZX) that are toxic to fungal microorganisms and help the body adjust and activate its self-healing mechanisms

Crave Success? Then Get Up, and Get Moving

The difference between knowing what you should be doing and starting the process of achieving it is one step. Stepping forward does not guarantee that you will succeed, but standing still guarantees that you won’t.

How to Get Rid of Mold Naturally

Media Blasting: Restoring to Former Condition

A recent anniversary – 21 years in the business – was announced by my business-related social network computer program. Of course, I realized that the milestone – completing my second full decade in the restoration industry - was approaching, but I didn’t realize that the programmers at LinkedIn would announce it to my entire business and social network.

Ways To Keep Rodents And Pests Out Of Your Home

Ways to Keep Rodents and Pests out of your home

Here are some ways to keep rodents and pests out of your home. Pest Control Pros has some tips on how to keep pest control from happening in your home or business. The EPA say it can cause many health problems such as https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq/pesticides-impact-indoor-air-quality

How to control pests

Pests can ruin your day. What will be your first though if you get up in the morning and saw a cockroach, spider or mouse in your home? Surely this bad sight will be there with you for the whole day.

No doubt everyone wants to control the pests in his home. There are many ways to control these nasty creatures. In this article, we will discuss some ways that you can follow to control the pests in your house.

1: Stop them from entering:

This is the best defensive strategy against them. There is a common proverb that “prevention is better than cure”. This applies to the pest control as well. Instead of using pesticide sprays afterward. The best strategy for you is to prevent them.

You can block the small holes that can allow them to enter in your house. There are many ways to do it. You can fit rubber tubing under the door so that the pests can’t cross them. Pests are small so they can enter from drainage holes too. So you can use the smallest size steel net for the drains to stop them from entering your house. In short, stop their entrance ways.

2: Don’t pile up the food remains in the kitchen:

After following the first way, you must follow this approach too to get rid of the pests. There must not be anything in your house that attracts the pests. It includes the remains of the foods.

It is observed in some houses that the remains of the food especially bread crumbs are there in the kitchen. It is a big attraction to the pests. So avoid keeping them there and throw them as soon as possible.

3: Standing water in your garden or house:

Mosquitoes are always in need of standing water bodies for the breeding of their eggs. And if you want to avoid them, then you must not provide them the breeding area.

Some people don’t care while watering the garden that if extra water is supplied to the plants, the water keeps standing there. And even inside the house, any water containing pot must not be open. If there is a water container, then cover with another dish. And in gardens, use some preventive measures like watering in a limit to avoid the standing water there.

4: Avoid throwing meat in the dustbin:

The rotten meat is another attraction to the pests. You must avoid it. If you are sure that the garbage will be picked within 48 hours of throwing the meat then you can dump the meat in it. But if the garbage is not picked up within 48 hours then the rotten meat along with the sunlight will attract dozens of pests.

5: Firewood-attract termites:

In some places, there is a need for firewood. So if you are at that place then store the firewood properly as it attracts termites. Store it at a small distance from your house. If you store it in the house, then you are going to invite a lot of termites.
