Pathogens

Remember Mom instruction from his childhood: "My hands before eating," "do not eat unwashed fruit," "Do not take any crap in your mouth," "not roysya in the mud." It would seem that what is absurd to follow these rules, when life is at stake, when there is a struggle for survival in the wild. However, not all so simple! Eat something that does not, or pick up some, not only intestinal, infection - this is very bad as it once did in the wild. Aid can not expect coming from. You can specifically be laid up, exhausted. In the case of diarrhea you face more and dehydration.

Despite the harsh conditions and poor sanitation around - should best protect themselves against various infections. Try to drink only disinfected, purified water, there is no suspicious products, if possible, wash foods, meat and fish well boil thoroughly or roast thoroughly. In short, despite the conditions, to try to do the same thing you do in matters of food intake and water to the civilized world.

Of course, the infection can get into our bodies, not only with food and drink. Bacteria can be entered through the wound in the skin or insects (midges), which transfer the infection. And usually it's more serious disease than banal diarrhea and even dysentery.

Fully protect yourself from mosquitoes in the humid subtropical and equatorial jungle, taiga - just not realistic. But it is necessary to take maximum measures: close clothes maximum area of the body, make a mask on your face, use dymovuhoy, to ward off midges.

As for the sores and cuts - they should try to avoid. When moving through a dense forest or jungle - a difficult task. Anyway, scrapes and scratches will be. Clothing should be covered hands, face and legs. If possible, on these, the most risky parts of the body to make extra dressing.

If, however, the wound occurred during the halt should be rinsed with clean water and bandage. If there is an alcohol or an antiseptic medication - to disinfect the wound. If the damage is severe - heat the knife and cauterize the wound. In short, to the maximum possible measure to the blood through the skin damage from getting an infection.
