Swimming in Summer, Beware of Mycoplasma Infection in the Pool
It is hot in summer, and the swimming pool has become the central activity place for everyone. But every year, many people suffer from infectious diseases after swimming in the summer. Because the disinfection is not strict, the water in many swimming pools contains human sweat, saliva, urine, and even feces, which has become the vector of infectious diseases.

What diseases can be transmitted in the swimming pool?
1. Dermatosis
The longer you swim in summer, the higher your risk of skin diseases. Because of the long soaking time, the cuticle of the skin becomes looser and looser, and many bacteria and viruses invade. In addition, some public bathrooms do not often change the water so that they will be infected with fungal skin diseases such as tinea pedis or tinea corporis.
2. Ophthalmic diseases
Most swimming pools are disinfected with bleach powder, and the residual bleach powder will irritate the eyes, so the eyes may become red and itchy after swimming, causing eye diseases. Moreover, various bacteria and viruses in the pool will directly contact the conjunctiva, causing conjunctivitis, etc.
3. Intestinal diseases
The swimming pool may contain pathogenic bacteria that cause diarrhea. If you accidentally drink water into your mouth or choke water while swimming, the pathogenic bacteria will enter the human digestive tract, causing intestinal bacterial infection, viral infection, and other diseases.
4. Urogenital tract inflammation
If people who go swimming carry Candida, Staphylococcus aureus, trichomonas, Mycoplasma genitalium, Ureaplasma urealyticum, HPV, and other pathogenic bacteria, they may infect other people and cause urogenital tract inflammation.
Beware of mycoplasma infection. It is a part of the infectious disease in the swimming pool!
Mycoplasma, which causes urinary tract and genital tract infections, is transmitted through sexual life, close contact, and mother-to-child transmission. Close contact transmission refers to contacting or sharing towels, clothes, baths, toilets, swimming pools, etc. Go to a public swimming pool, and you will inevitably come into contact with Mycoplasma infected people or carriers and the things they have used, which will also lead to the spread of mycoplasma infection.
Mycoplasma infects the human urinary system. The typical symptoms are similar to those of nongonococcal urethritis, which are characterized by urgency and frequency of urination, stinging urination, mild redness and swelling of the urethral orifice, thin secretion, serous or purulent, and small amount. After urinary tract infection, men will also infect the genital tract, which is combined with prostatitis, epididymitis, orchitis, etc. patients often suffer from the perineal area, scrotal pain, pain radiating to the surroundings, backache, and other symptoms.
The symptoms of urinary tract infection in women are mild, often manifested as reproductive system inflammation centered on the cervix, increased leucorrhea, turbidity, cervical edema, congestion, or surface erosion. If mycoplasma infection spreads, it will lead to pelvic inflammation, endometritis, salpingitis, and other diseases.
Symptoms of mycoplasma infection require prompt treatment. Men can choose natural medicine of Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to clear heat and detoxification, activate blood circulation and Qi, and relieve pain. And women can choose the natural therapy of the Fuyan Pill to clear heat and detoxification, activate blood circulation, remove blood stasis, and strengthen spleen and dampness!
What should you notice when swimming in summer?
Knowing the above hazards, people should take some protective measures in addition to selecting suitable swimming places in summer:
1. Clean the whole body before swimming to avoid the combination of sweat and oil with chlorine in the water and skin irritation.
2. If you have poor resistance to illness or skin damage, you'd better not swim for minor wounds, increasing the risk of infection.
3. Bring personal items such as towels, bath towels, slippers, etc., and try not to use public items provided by the swimming place.
4. Wear swimming caps, waterproof glasses, nose plugs, ear plugs, and other items when swimming to prevent pathogenic bacteria from entering the body.
5. Swimming time should not be too long. About an hour is appropriate.
