1 Answer:

Hello

Thanks for the question on HealthReplies.com

Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that generally attacks the mucous membranes of the nose and throat and sometimes affects the skin. Diphtheria will usually cause symptoms in the form of:

fever and chills a thin, gray membrane covering the throat and tonsils difficulty breathing sore throat and hoarseness of the runny nose. At first it is liquid but over time it becomes thick and sometimes mixed with blood, swelling of the neck area for treatment, it is best to first determine whether there is a diphtheria infection or not. The definite treatment is the use of antibiotics. If indeed the patient feels short of breath until he can not breathe usually will be recommended removal of the membrane that covers the airway. Inhalers can be used as adjunct therapy but should not be used too often because it can cause the nasal mucosa (inner lining of the nose) to become drier than normal.
