Chickenpox in children-Signs Symptoms & treatment

signs and symptoms of chickenpox
Chickenpox usually starts without the classic rash, with a fever, sore throat, headache, or stomachache. These signs and symptoms may last for a few days, with the fever in the 101°to102°F (38.3°–38.8°C) range.

The red, itchy skin rash starts typically on the belly or back and face. Then it increases to almost everywhere else on the body, including the arms, legs, scalp, mouth, and genitals.

The rash starts as many small red bumps that look like insect bites or pimples. They appear in gradual waves over 2 to 4 days, then eventually develop into thin-walled blisters filled with some fluid. The blister walls break, leaving open wounds, which eventually crust over to become dry, brown scabs.

All three stages of the chickenpox rash (blisters, red bumps, and scabs) appear on the body at the same time. The rash may grow and spread wider or be more severe in children who have weak immune systems or skin disorders like eczema.

Body fat reduction :the essential tips and rules to guide you on losing excess fat

Reducing body fat can sometimes be tricky and not easy to achieve alone. I decided to make simple rules that you can live by to make you reduce or maintain a healthy body fat content.

1. Thou shalt not drink calories. Period. If you need to lose fat ditch the morning milkshake, the afternoon coke and the evening booze.

Just drink water. If you unquestionably have to drink something with flavour then have a sugar-free lemonade or a diet coke. Also, every moment you feel really tempted to have a drink take a look at this page and look at these numbers:

0,5 L Coca Cola = 197 kcal
0,3 L wine = 250 kcal

0,5 L beer = ~215 kcal

So I have a task to jog for 5 km to compensate for that coke drink? Then I’ll just have water with lemon, please.

2. Eat better, not less. Furthermore, stop counting calories, it will drive you nuts. Just remember one simplistic rule:

protein = good
carbs = bad

fat = mostly good

A diet high in fat and protein will assist you to lose fat. A diet that is high in carbs will add an…

Why You should stop drinking soft drinks

Image
Soft drinks contain insane amounts of refined sugar, just as these foods and refined sugar are known to spike your insulin levels, triggering your body into storing energy which means more fat cells being created.




Here is how many sugar cubes a typical type of soft drink contains, varies according to brand and formula. Now think about it, would you eat that many sugar cubes if they weren't diluted into a drink? Most likely you would throw up after just a few of them. Soft drinks trick you into eating more sugar than your body can absorb.
Think you can drink Zero Coke instead? Think again, aspartame has been found to have the exact same effect as refined sugar when it comes to triggering the fat storage process of your body.
Drink more water, coffee or tea (without sugar), what you drink matters as much as what you eat in order to stay healthy.

Some of the most unhealthiest foods that everyone should stop eating

When we take a closer look at the numbers, according to the USDA agency, the average American consumes between 150 and 170 pounds of simple sugars per year. To fully understand the connection between insulin resistance and other chronic diseases (including cancer), we must first learn what blood glucose is, and how it gets there in the first place.
Glucose is the sugar that circulates in our bloodstream, and is the body’s main source of energy. According to researchers from the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, “in the United States, impaired glucose intolerance [also known as insulin resistance] is an independent risk factor for cancer mortality.”
The results of the study attached to this quote found that people with insulin resistance were 4x as likely to die from colon cancer and twice as likely to die from any other form of cancer compared to individuals who did not have insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance has been linked to the incidence and progressi…

How to lose 2kg body weight in 2 weeks

I always find a good way to switch it up and hope to see a good number on the scale is this simple advice:
-Swap some of your unhealthy habits for healthier ones
-Try to drink a glass of water 10 minutes before a meal, so you suppress the hunger.
-Ensure you drink enough water
The best thing you can do in my opinion is track. Track what you eat and drink for a day, it really opens your eyes of how much food and “liquid calories” we consume daily. Tracking your caloric intake will also help you figure out what your daily goal should be to lose the weight in the timespan. Average weight loss should be 1–2 lbs a week for health maintenance. I suggest the app MyFitnessPal since you can take calories as well as water and exercise. It will calculate the daily calorie goal based on height, weight and fitness goal.

Woman Wanted a Cat that Nobody Would Adopt and Found 20-year-old Kitty Waiting for Her

A 20-year-old cat named Diesel suddenly found himself at a shelter.

Confused, he waited quietly in his kennel, hoping someone would come to take him home.



A few days ago, Tracie Peddy from Kitt Crusaders, a rescue group in Los Angeles, came across a sweet super senior cat at a city shelter. He was surrendered after his owners divorced and couldn't keep him. Tracie sent out a plea on Facebook and hoped someone special could open their door and hearts to this deserving boy.

Thais Yamamoto, who has adopted her previous two kitties from Kitt Crusaders, learned about Diesel's story that afternoon.

"I've always wanted a senior cat or one with special needs — I wanted a cat that nobody would adopt. Kittens are easily adopted so I waited for my special cat," Thais told Love Meow.

When she saw Diesel and his age, something just clicked. "I didn't think twice and sent Crusaders a message. They arranged for me to pick up Diesel the very next day at West LA shelter."…
