This can make it more complicated to find the area to target so that the host will not be harmed in the process.

A is the correct answer. Dracunculus medinensis causes the Guinea worm disease that had been noted in as early as the 15th century BC in Egypt and believed to be fiery serpent being described in the Bible by the Israelites. The disease is caused by the female nematodes that infect humans.

The female nematodes can reach up to 800 mm in length compared to the male Guinea worm that only reaches up to 40 mm. The larvae of D. medinensis are usually found in freshwater where they are eaten by copepods.

When humans or any other mammals ingested the infected copepod, the larvae live on the stomach walls and female D. medinensis migrates to the subcutaneous tissue to survive. They cause blisters on their host’s body that can cause pain and skin irritation to their host.

Viruses are pathogens as well, even if they are not alive. A pathogen is a disease causing organism or agent (as in the case ofviruses). We call viruses that cause disease "viral pathogens." When a virus takes over the genome of a cell, it becomes at that point in time, and for all intents and purposes, "alive," hence, pathogenic. I hope this helps.

Diaphoresis is a word that refers to sweating, great to use when sick for controlling a fever. Internally, diaphoretics also support movement of toxins out of the body. These toxins may come from injured joints, fluid retention, lung irritants, or other parts of the body. Peppermint is a cooling diaphoretic herb which also stimulates digestion and helps calm the body.

In addition to use for colds and flues, peppermint is also often used to relieve gas and bloating. The elder flower are a cooling diaphoretic and are used a bit differently than berries. The delicate flowers are best used in an infusion. In higher doses, they may increase bowel movements. To reduce this, combine them with peppermint. In addition to being a warming diaphoretic herb, sage is also a digestive herb, relaxing herb, and astringent.

One of the best actions of sage is that it is an antimicrobial herb. Ginger’s diaphoretic properties are useful for colds and flues but the movement of toxins is more noticeable with ginger and its pain relieving actions.

There are a few things you can do to help your hemorrhoid heal fast. It is recommended that you keep the area as clean as you can. It’s also recommended that you drink water so you stay hydrated. (For this, the best thing to do is keep your urine a light, see-through yellow or clear; how much you drink is not relevant as long as these are happening.) Topical treatments are recommended, either by prescription or over the counter, if possible. When possible, eat more foods with fiber or take fiber supplements to increase the fiber in your diet.

It’s most important that you know what it means to have a hemorrhoid. If you mistake something else for a hemorrhoid, nothing you try for a hemorrhoid is likely to help. Bright red blood often means the hemorrhoid is inside the anus or rectum, but there’s little to no pain.
