What causes liver to inflame?
Liver inflammation is called hepatitis. (Hepato- = liver; -itis = inflammation) There are many causes of hepatitis: They can be caused by viruses. 95% of the viral causes are Hepatitis A through E. Other viral causes include Herpes simplex, Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr, yellow fever virus, adenoviruses. Some non viral infections can also cause liver inflammation, such as toxoplasma and rocky mountain spotted fever. Toxins such as Amanita toxin in mushrooms can cause liver inflammation. Drugs are also another source of liver inflammation. These inflammation are not uncommon since many drugs are metabolized by the liver when taken by mouth. Some of the drugs include acetaminophen (Tylenol), paracetamol, amoxycillin, antituberculosis medicines, minocycline, methyldopa, nitrofurantoin, isoniazid, ketoconazole Auto immune conditions, such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)can cause liver inflammation. Metabolic diseases, such as Wilson's disease can also cause liver inflammation. Alcohol is a big cause of liver inflammation, especially when taken when the drugs listed above.

An inflamed cervix is often called dysplagia which is caused from infection or from repeatedly being hit by the penis during intercourse. Treatments include vaginal creams by …prescription, or cryrosurgery if severe.
Answer Depending on what you might be allergic to, dust can do it. Pollen grains from plants like rag weed are known to cause such problems. Pet dander, some c…hemicals, mold and mildew can too. A lot of it depends on the person.
A ranula is a bulbous swelling of the tissue in the mouth, typically in the lower mouth, on the inner surface of the gums below the teeth. The reason why a ranul…a occurs is because there is some obstruction in the salivary ducts. It may tend to appear more often when you are hungry or simply craving something. The sub-mandibular or sub-lingual glands often tend to be the glands to cause this, typically the sub-lingual glands. The sure way to help this to stop happening is by surgically removing the gland causing this. First make sure you get some kind of scan with contrast to try and see what gland is causing this, an ultrasound of the area is very helpful as well. Once the gland has been identified you can then talk to your maxillofacial surgeon about surgery. The removal of the gland often takes about 3-4 hours due to the nerves that are around and the muscles. The risk of mortality and of something else going wrong is very little so have no worries. Once the removal has been done the chances of it ocurring once again is basically zero because there will be nothing else to produce the saliva the ranula becomes filled with. If it does occur then the nearest gland to the removed one may be the one to have always caused this. Not having the sub-lingual or the sub-mandibular glands does not cause much problem because together they provide about 15% or less of the saliva in our mouths. We have thousands of glands all around our mouths being produced so nothing to worry about.
what caused my inflamed spine is my type of work, I'm a hair stylist standing for so many hours a day. i hardly exercise or stretch. … \\
I have infammatory noed in the precarinal area.
I'm not entirely sure what you mean be "liver cleanse" - there is nothing extra that can be done to boost liver funcion by means of detox dieting, herbal remedies etc... "Deto…xing" should not cause liver pain, however if the detox involved herbal medication, some can cause liver problems in previously healthy individuals (i.e. just because they're herbal does not mean they are safe). If you already had liver issues and this is why you're "cleansing", the cleanse probably hasn't made it worse or better; best to see your doctor if you're worried.
No. Chlamydia can cause an inflamed tube though. \n \nA tube that is inflamed or infected will develop scar tissue and the whole tube can become permanently blocked. If a wo…man has blocked Fallopian tubes, she will not become pregnant without special medical help.\n \nIf you have pain in the area of your belly button and you think you might have chlamydia, you need to see your doctor or women's clinic as soon as you can.
According to information found on the Mayo Clinic website, there are two types of fatty liver disease. One is nonalcoholic and is generally caused by obesity and a high fat di…et (my words, not exactly the words used by Mayo Clinic but basically similar info). It is common and usually does not cause harm. However, in SOME people, it can lead to liver failure. Alcoholic fatty liver is a whole other animal. As long as the person continues to drink, it can definitely progress to liver failure, especially in heavy alcoholics. The liver can only process so much alcohol per day or even per hour before the liver is affected.
I have a lot of large swollen taste buds on the very back of my tongue and am wondering the same.
It can be caused by age. Many men suffer from a condition called BPH. It can also be caused by a bladder infection.
Absolutely! I get it all the time. When a person gets congested and sinuses start acting up, it causes pretty bad pressure in the head, which can cause horrible headaches, and… even migraines.
