149 Possible Causes for Increased Susceptibility to Infections, Otalgia

  • Common Cold

    susceptibility to infections.[ingentaconnect.com] Some rhinovirus serotypes also upregulate ICAM-1 expression on human epithelial cells to increase susceptibility to infection.[emedicine.medscape.com] The general public and public health authorities should therefore keep this in mind and take appropriate measures to prevent increases in morbidity and mortality during winter[ingentaconnect.com]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    […] to infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms included sore throat, laryngitis, cough, influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia, otalgia, and sinusitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After AOM is diagnosed, judicious antibiotic use can be enhanced by further categorizing patients on the basis of illness severity (severe otalgia, otalgia lasting 48 hours[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Sinusitis

    Sometimes a deviated septum, broken nose, or growths such as nasal polyps can make you more susceptible to sinus infections.[healthy.kaiserpermanente.org] Minor factors (diagnostically significant only with one or more major factors) include a headache, halitosis, fatigue, malaise, dental pain, cough, and otalgia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] saline spray versus no treatment Not declared Not declared 36% Only 60% compliance for most Tomooka 2000 211 Hypertonic irrigation 24% Nasal irritation, nasal discomfort, otalgia[doi.org]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Conclusions Severe hypochlorhydria generated by PPI use leads to bacterial colonisation and increased susceptibility to enteric bacterial infection.[dx.doi.org] Conversely, no conclusive clinical evidence supports a link between gastroesophageal reflux and other supraesophageal problems, including otalgia, recurrent otitis media,[emedicine.com] […] manifestations (non-cardiac chest pain, globus, asthma, chronic cough, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, recurrent pneumonia, hoarseness, "throat clearing", laryngitis, sinusitis, otalgia[scielo.br]

  • Otitis Media

    Whilst this is often accompanied by a feeling of relief as the pressure inside the ear is released, this can lead to excessive draining of the ear and increases susceptibility[news-medical.net] Severe illness is defined as moderate to severe otalgia or temperature greater than 39 C, whereas nonsevere illness is defined as mild otalgia and temperature less than 39[emedicine.com] The reduced efficacy of CRM197‐PCV7 in children already with a history of AOM may be explained by an increased susceptibility to subsequent infections, not only with non‐vaccine‐type[doi.org]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    This increased susceptibility is likely due to the younger infant and child’s shorter eustachian tube, its horizontal position, their limited exposure to both bacterial and[coreem.net] The diagnosis is based on acute onset of symptoms such as otalgia and fever, middle ear inflammation such as erythema of the tympanic membrane, and middle ear effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Otalgia is taken seriously by parents and pediatricians, and otalgia treatment seems to be well accepted in Turkey for providing symptomatic relief and enhancing the patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Otitis Externa

    (UTIs) also increase an individual’s susceptibility to acute pyelonephritis.[ada.com] Clinical efficacy, in terms of otalgia, oedema, erythema and tenderness of the external auditory canal, was assessed before packing was applied and at follow up on the 3rd[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute otitis externa presents with the rapid onset of ear canal inflammation, resulting in otalgia, itching, canal edema, canal erythema, and otorrhea, and often occurs following[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    […] risk of infection.[en.wikipedia.org] This increased risk may be due to a combination of shared genetic susceptibility within the family, close contact with carriers, and the virulence of the Group A streptococcal[en.wikipedia.org] […] of people affected by severe Group A streptococcal infections, defined as those having had prolonged household contact in the week before the onset of illness, may be at increased[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Herpes Zoster

    […] in risk of zoster with age may be due to the generalized loss of immune competence (immunosenescence) that contributes to older individuals' increased susceptibility to cancer[dx.doi.org] […] infection of the inner, middle and external ear characterised by herpetic blisters (small vesicles) of the skin of the external canal, pinna and/or the oral mucosa and severe otalgia[doi.org] , autoimmune diseases, and infections. 6 The extent of immunosenescence can vary considerably between individuals, 7 but (like zoster) its determinants are largely unknown[dx.doi.org]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    We tested the hypothesis that exposure to TiO 2 -NP results in increased susceptibility to RSV infection and exacerbation of airway inflammation via NGF-mediated induction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Increased local IL-10 production is associated with decreased production of type I and type 2 interferons, leaving patients susceptible to respiratory viral infections.[journals.plos.org] Navarini AA, Recher M, Lang KS, Georgiev P, Meury S, et al. (2006) Increased susceptibility to bacterial superinfection as a consequence of innate antiviral responses.[omicsonline.org]
