Is There A Link Between Mouthwash and Gonorrhea?

Sharing is caring!

From BBC News Health

 

Recent studies have shown people can carry the gonorrhea sexually transmitted infection in their throats for weeks or months without symptoms.

And they could spread it to others through unprotected oral sex.

So investigators are looking at whether regular mouthwash might help stop the silent spread (of gonorrhea) and experts think it is an idea that is worth exploring.

Prof Christopher Fairley from Monash University has been testing the mouthwash theory in 58 male volunteers.

All of the men had detectable levels of throat Gonorrhea at the start of the trial.

He asked half of them to gargle and swill for a minute with saltwater while he gave the others a branded antiseptic mouthwash, bought from a supermarket, to use instead.

  1. 高血圧 改善 October 23, 10:24

    高血圧を下げる方法は、日々の習慣をチェンジすることが絶対だと感じています。

    これは一例ですが、まず先に変えるとしたら食べ物でしょう。肉を摂取しすぎずに生野菜をたくさん食べて、バランスを考えた食べ物を摂ることを肝に銘じましょう。

    また、運動を行うことも大切です。息切れするほどのスポーツはしないことと、医師の助言にあったスポーツを行ってください。推奨はウォーキングです。

    重要なのは明日からではなく、今この瞬間から実行することです。即行動しましょう。

    詳しくはこちらを参照ください。
