It is a rare but very life-threatening condition mainly caused by the release of toxins from overgrowth bacteria which is known as staphylococcus aureus. This bacteria releases toxins producing different symptoms that, if not treated properly, can be deadly. It is very commonly associated with the use of tampons in women, but it also affects men and children if they have an infection in the skin, burns or after any surgery.

The symptoms may appear as any other symptoms due to a bacterial infection: high fever, nausea, alteration in the right function of different organs. This is why if you are experiencing any symptoms it is very important to contact your health care provider to have it treated as soon as possible. This illness can be avoided by washing your hands properly, having good hygiene, but for women who use tampons or menstrual cups is not leaving them for more than a couple of hours and to use less absorbent tampons to change them regularly.


Esta enfermedad es característica por estar causada por la exotoxina de estafilococos o estreptococos. Es más conocido por su asociación con el uso de tampones. Estos no usados adecuadamente, pueden provocar una infección bastante grave, pero poco frecuente. El hecho de que se asocie a un producto de higiene femenina, no quiere decir que no le pueda ocurrir esto a hombres, niños y mujeres con menopausia cuando, por ejemplo, tengan una infección cutánea, quemadura o después de una cirugía.

Los síntomas pueden ser: fiebre, hipotensión, vómitos o alteraciones de las funciones de múltiples aparatos. En general, aparecen como cualquier otra infección bacteriana, con la diferencia de que esta puede ser letal si no se trata a tiempo y no se consulta con un médico.  Esta dolencia se puede evitar si se tiene una buena higiene en las manos. Sin embargo, en las mujeres que prefieran tampones frente a compresas u otro tipo producto para su higiene en los días de menstruación, como pueden ser las copas menstruales, es no mantener el tampón durante más horas de las recomendadas. Por esta razón, se aconseja escoger un tampón con un nivel de absorción menor para controlar mejor el flujo menstrual y cambiarlo con frecuencia.

Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils, which are located at the back of the throat — one tonsil on each side. Normally, it is caused by infection with a virus, but also by bacterial infections. Because appropriate treatment depends on the cause, it is important to get an immediate diagnosis. Surgery to remove tonsils was common, but nowadays it is only performed when the person affected does not respond to other treatments or has serious complications.

Tonsillitis most commonly affects children. However, symptoms are common to all ages. Some of them include:  swollen tonsils or with white patches, sore throat, painful swallowing, fever, scratchy voice, stiff neck and headache. In children, it is also normal the loss of appetite or an unusual fussiness.
