Health Information Everyone wants to be, and feel, well. ‘Wellness’ is more than just being free of disease – it also includes emotional, physical, mental, and social wellbeing. If we look after our physical health, we are better able to cope when faced with difficult situations that we cannot fully control. Looking after your health is an important part of keeping well.
Health Information Coughing is the way our body gets rid of something that is irritating the throat or airways (respiratory tract). It is part of the body’s normal defence mechanism.
Health Information Constipation is when you have trouble passing your bowel motions (stools), or your motions are not as regular as usual. Some people have a bowel motion every day, while for others it is normal to go, for example, only twice a week.
Health Information Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the thin clear layer on the white of the eyes (conjunctiva) and is sometimes called ‘pink eye’.
Health Information The initial sign of an emerging cold sore is a tingling, itching or burning feeling occurring on the lip, nose or cheek area. A small red bump appears after about one or two days, which turns into several tiny fluid-filled blisters. If the blisters burst, the fluid that oozes out is highly contagious. Symptoms of cold sores can last up to a week.
Health Information Common colds and influenza are caused by different viruses that are spread by sneezing, coughing, kissing or sharing utensils. Colds and flu have many symptoms in common, but they are very different conditions.
